Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred: Day 25 Down, Only Five More to Go!

Phew. I don’t remember how long I shredded for when I first did it back in 2009, but I know it wasn’t for 25 days. I have hit a new personal record for the number of workouts in a given period, that’s for sure.

My fat pants are too big, and I’m now wearing my “acceptable” pants. I’m still not wearing the size I was four years ago, but I’m a lot closer than I was at the beginning of this journey. And, I’ve found a solution to the clothes issue I brought up last week.

I’m clothes-swapping with a friend. I have a closet full of size 12s I can’t yet use, and she’s getting too snall for her size 14s, so we’re swapping. She’s promised to pass back the 12s when she passes out of them (she’ll end up a 10 or an 8), and then I’ll have my wardrobe back. Interim wardrobe problem somewhat solved. Not bad, eh?

How did your week in fitness go?

I started Level 3 today – even though it is harder, physically, I don’t find it mentally as tough. Fewer plank positions will do that, I imagine:)

I’ve also managed to keep up walking to and from work (weather permitting, which it mostly has) and I’m seeing better fitness and a sloooowww weight loss. Satisfactory, though.

Maybe when you finish the Shred we can convince someone to do another kind of regular fitness update for a while. I like this feature a lot–it’d be fun to see it continue! Maybe someone doing Couch to 5k or someone starting a gym class they’ve never done could give us regular updates so we can keep up on progress and continue to feel motivated. PLEASE?
