So to report on the last two weeks, I have completed the 30 day shred, I have taken a few days rest, but all in all I have worked out hard every day. Level three is killer, but I did it!! I am going to continue with this to reach my goal weight, so far it is the best and quickest way that I have tried. The results are that I have lost five pounds, and I suppose more importantly I have lost 6.5 inches. So although it is not the 20 lbs I was hoping for, perhaps it will just take me a little more time. I feel good, I feel healthy, and strong. I am proud of accomplishing a 30 day program, the old me wouldn't have made it a week....I recommend this work out to anyone who wants to tone up, loose weight, and get healthy.
Driving up to my moms yesterday we passed a spot where we took a walk to the nearby cemetery, Alysha was a wee babe, couldn't have been more than a couple weeks old. I was carrying her in my sling, and she was sleeping, and heavy. I think back to that point and compare it to how I am today, and oh my goodness was I sick. I remember that walk was terrible, I felt heavy and sluggish and just plain terrible. My blood pressure was so high, my gall bladder starting to bother me, Thank goodness that today I feel like a completely different person! Today when we got home from my ma's I went for a run....a RUN, I never run.. Ever. I hate running. And guess what, I actually kind of enjoyed it. It was night time so there was really no one sitting on their decks laughing at me, it was a beautiful evening and I was outside. I walked for some of it, but I think I am going to do this again, even though it almost killed me!
