Swam today

Monday, February 10, 2014

So did 30 laps today. I swim ten laps at a time with about 5 mins break in between. That exercise had me mellow all day. I was supposed to do 30 DS today but had an upset tummy tonight and my daughter is battling the cold so I figure becoming dehydrated and stressing my body is not a good idea. So sleep early and get 7 hours sleep. Tomorrow is another day!

30 Day Shred - Day 11 (23 Days)

Sunday, February 09, 2014

Hey did do it again today! My butt and back ached from level 2 so instead of taking time off I went back to level 1. I also managed to inveigle hubby to do it with me! Tomorrow I want to swim some laps in the morning and circuit train in the afternoon. I used to swim 30 laps 2-3 times a week before and I would like to get there again. Wish me luck I am really trying to change my sedentary ways!

Have a great week!

30 Day Shred - Day 10 (22 days) Started Level2

Saturday, February 08, 2014

So its Saturday and I totally fell off the wagon this week! I have no idea why. Actually when I told my husband I missed four days he is like are you sure! Yes I am and I have this blog to prove it. Am I distressed that it is 22 days and I have done this exercise 10 times? Yes. Am I so proud that I have exercised 10 times over the past 22 days. YES. I know that I am supposed to exercise 5-6 days a week to finish this in 34 days however I am just so glad to be exercising again that I cannot be too distressed about that.

More good news I just finished level2! Whoohoo!I was dreading it sooo much that I decided today is the day! I went right through, stopped a couple of times and did the modifications but I did it all! I must have blacked out mid way through because I thought I did two circuits and I was wondering how am I doing a third circuit and I saw the words COOL DOWN come up! I have never been so happy to see the cool down come up. Actually it was not as bad physically as when I started level 1 at the beginning of the month. My pants are also starting to fall down. The scale says I have not moved but I have lost inches and getting definition back in my biceps and triceps!

Overall I feel so much better than January 1st! My clients have commented how much happier I seem. I am no longer snapping at my children or husband. Endorphins rock! Have a great weekend everyone and I really hope that you see me posting here again tomorrow.

    it's important to be consistent and maybe a try looking at as a streak. Your restart goal is to do complete 24 days or something like that. But you should be proud - you've made progress and that is the main thing.

30 Day shred - Day 9 (17 days)

Monday, February 03, 2014

Hi guys!

I am still alive. I didn't feel well this weekend and my oldest daughter was sick and throwing up on Saturday. I was in no mood to do any exercise. I also spent time putting up a website for my extended family for pictures and the family tree. So worked out tonight. My girls decided they would do some of it with me. They picked and chose but still fun. For some reason my stomach looks huge but I am going still. It was much easier to do crunches. I am falling asleep so I do not want to write more as I will be writing gibberish.

Talk to you soon

30 Day shred - Day 8 (13 days)

Thursday, January 30, 2014

Hey everyone,

I fell asleep last night (passed out) and I am going out tonight so I risked it and did Day 8 in the morning! It was great but I felt soooo sleepy driving to work. I had so much more energy to do the session in the morning instead of in the night. I did not stop at all and I was able to jump with both feet off the ground in the last exercise. I have no idea how I am going out tonight :). I will let you know if I fall asleep during dinner. Someone already commented how great I look today and I know it is the exercise. I am still dreading level 2. Can I stay at level 1 :) I am not bored yet just enjoying it.

Have a great day!

    Love reading your updates! Its sooo fun seeing such improvement! You could probably stay on Level 1 for a few extra days if you feel like you need it, but you need to step up to Level 2 to improve even more! And think about how hard Level 1 was at first... Level 2 will be the same but then think about 4 or 5 days into how much improvement you'll see!!!
