30 Day Shred: Week 3 Results

Just for everyone who keeps asking, I am blogging every single day on Sparkpeople.com and you can following along with me on my daily journey (as well as to see my healthy eating plan) by viewing my Spark Page at: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage.asp?id=ashavers

Moving from Level 2 of The Shred to Level 3 was actually a tiny bit of relief because, for me, Level 2 was nearly impossible and I hated every minute of it! ha :) Level 3 has a lot of plyometrics (jump training), which is tough... has me gargling my heart and after 3 days in, I am still struggling just to get through the workout! But, because of all the hard work I put in to Level 1 and Level 2, it seems my core is really strong now so, I can totally hang with all the plank/ab work in Level 3 and have moved on to heavier weights (6lb!). I have found recently that I am much happier working out during Emily's nap than right before I got to bed because, at the end of the day, I'm just exhausted and all I can think about is SLEEP so, as long as she lets me, I'm going to eat 1/2 my lunch with her around Noon and then, workout around 3:30pm. I'll eat the other 1/2 of my lunch after I shower. Eating all my lunch and then working out made me want to vomit!

On to the specific numbers:

Just in the last 7 days, I have:
Lost: 1lb
Lost: 1.5" in my waist
Lost: 0" in my hips
Lost: 0" in my neck
Lost: 0.75" in my thighs

In total, over the past 3 weeks of doing The Shred, I have:
Lost: 2lbs
Lost: 4.5" in my waist
Lost: 1" in my hips
Lost: 1" in my neck
Lost: 1.25" in my thighs
Lost: 0.5" in my upper arms

MOST IMPORTANT: I am following a "Fat Shred" healthy eating plan that I have detailed in my Day 12 blog entry on Sparkpeople.com and I am not cheating at all! I have faithfully followed this plan, carefully weighed/portioned everything I have put in my mouth and have even turned my husband on to it! You can read all about my struggles and triumphs on my Sparkpeople.com Spark Page.

Good luck to everyone else on their getting fit journeys!!!
