I know... I know... I am very behind. I really wanted to share my results with all of you because it really is kind of cool and I am proud of what I was able to accomplish!
One month ago, I started the 30 Day Shred.
Today. I finished. (Okay... I finished several weeks ago... but I suck that much at blogging right now)
Here are some before and after photos:
Here are my thoughts on the Shred...
1) How do I feel about my results? Pretty good. I didn't lose weight while doing the Shred, but I gained some mad lean muscle mass. I am most definitely stronger today than I was on day one.
2) Can I see the difference? You be the judge. While I'm not exactly rocking Jillian's abs, I can see that I have toned up in my core, arms and booty and I am very happy with that.
3) Morning Workouts. They still suck. I'm still a total zombie in the morning. Sore all day. BUT... here it comes... I was surprisingly waking up before my alarm would even go off. I only missed getting up maybe 3 weekdays and of course did the Shred at night to make up for not getting up. But just 3 missed mornings? Not bad for a non-morning person!
4) The Shred has helped me KILL my run times. I went from a pace of 11:15 per mile to 10:09. An entire MINUTE. That is insane. Most of the Shred focuses a great deal on core work- I'm a firm believer this is what helped speed up my pace.
5) I'm so happy with the results that I plan to do yet another round of Jillian following my Get Lucky 7K Race tomorrow- I will be doing her Ripped in 30 program.
6) I posted pictures of myself in a sports bra. Holy shit!
I will continue look for activities and ideas to continue being inspired and motivated.
Tell me: what motivates you?
