Day 83/Day 1 of The Shred
Today was the first day I decided to try the 30 Day Shred. Holy Crap. My knees hurt and my arms are still shaking. This workout kicked my butt but it felt good. I would be lying if I said I can't wait to do it again but I can wait because it is the longest 20 minutes of my life. I will do it again & again & again. I am thinking that doing it with 5 lb. weights isn't the smartest idea when I broke & sprained both wrists but those are the only weights I have. I think if you do this video without stopping & move as fast as she does that you might see some good results. Only time will tell.
I had Chris measure me today so I can see where I stand after this is over. I also have decided that I will do the 30 Day Shred before breakfast then I will do another video before lunch. That way if Rachelle wants me to do the hip hop video with her then I am free and will get in even more activity. It's all about moving a lot more this year.
I made a Weight Watchers friendly meal tonight. It was Spicy Shrimp Fried Rice. I think I made it too spicy for Chelle but Chris and I loved it. I also did my Walk & Run video today. Drank the 48oz. of water. That was a hard one for me. When it is cold outside drinking is not easy but I did it! Day one down of that.
One thing that has really been on my mind is sagging skin. I am so worried about that. I mean I have stretched my skin further then it ever needed to be stretched. I am wondering if anyone has suggestions on exercise that I need to be doing now so that I can attempt to prevent it. If that is even possible. I am so worried about it. I do expect some but if there is anything that I can do to try and tighten it up I would love to know. I know slow and steady weight loss is one so I have that one down believe me. I am hoping the 30 Day Shred video might help also.
