While I realize this would work better with pictures, I’m not about to show all of me in my sweaty workout gear to all of you. That said, I have progress. It’s been 18 days since I started 30 Day Shred. I decided to do each Level 15 times instead of 10 so I learn the correct form and gain (hopefully) enough strength to not die when I move to the next level. Full disclosure: in 18 days I’ve completed the workout 14 times. I went to NOLA and had a nasty cold so there’s been a little lag. That said, I measured Monday (day 16) because I read on some blog to go ahead and measure at day 15 for motivation. I was too lazy to measure my thighs and arms because I’m not overly concerned about those areas, but I did measure my upper waist, lower waist and hips. And…drumroll…I’ve lost 1.5 inches, 1 from my upper waist and .5 from my hips! I have no idea what progress I should be having but considering I’m not dieting I’m super pleased. I can do this!
