30 Day Shred & Extreme Fat Smash Diet

Tuesday, October 21, 2008

Thanks for paying me a visit.

Yesterday I started the Extreme Fat Smash Diet and also started my 30 Day Shred workouts. I must say as far as the diet is concerned, I could get use to it. There are a variety of snacks you could eat, so this week I chose almonds (only 14) and Chocolate Covered Raisins (only 10). I just started eating raisins yesterday, I think at this point I love the raisins. I am eating approximately every 2-3 hours, but very small quantities. I didn't get hungry until last night around 9:30 my son wanted me to play Bakugan with him then around 10:30 my stomach started talking to me. My daughter came home and was cooking something in the kitchen that I believe I gained at least 5 pounds just from inhaling the fumes, I didn't know toast smelled so good. At this time I tucked my son in bed, watched television until midnight "I have to watch my soaps from 11pm-12am" every night. I shut the television off once the soaps were over and slept like a baby. I woke up this morning and was so proud of myself for not giving into temptation last night.

My 30 Day Shred Workout by Jillian Michaels. Yesterday I completed Day 1 Level 1. Of course I wanted to give up but I didn't I kept going until the bitter end. Last night my abs "gut" , arms and legs are sore, but it was such a good sore feeling. My body is so confused right now because the ball is in my court. I will do Day 2 Level 1 tonight and hope that my body would realize that I am not giving up! Do you know that there is a skinny me dying to get out of this body and I am not going to let anything get in the way.

My heart is in the game. I've lose 30lbs on Sparkpeople before and know it can be done and will do it again. We have so many inspirational, motivational and supportive people here. This is one HUGE family that would go above and beyond the call of duty to support one another. I don't know how I could do this without 'YOUR" support. Whether you add me as a friend and are a listening ear when I fall off the wagon, You don't look down on me, you just reassure me that I am not alone and "YOU" have confidence I that I can and will do it.

I can't thank you enough for being there for me. I KNOW WE ARE NOT ALONE...WE ARE A TEAM!!

Thanks for listening.

    You speak such motivating words. We are in this together no matter the amount we need to lose. My emotional eating was outta control.. I am now realizing what triggers it and dealing with it. The 30 Day Shred is one of my routines. Be encouraged - I as of lately have been wanting to give up on this, especially at the end, but Ms. Micheals is encouraging... I always look at the pic of her before she lost her 50 lbs. She did it.. and so can we. We are worth it. You go girl!! :)

    Excellent Work! Getting through the first session of "The Shred" is no easy task. It always feels so good to accomplish the goal!!!!!
    I too plan on working my way up to 30 straight days. I thought I could do it initially, but I've only managed to go every other day. Looking forward to reading about your progress.

    Well it sounds like our plans are the same. I did accomplish 1 day of the 30 day shred. I have it as a goal for this week to begin and give it 1-2 days a week along with walking. My plan is to begin 11/1 for a full 30 days but I'll see. I was sore the next day as well, but that wasn't my reason for stopping.

    Hang in there the diet plan is great. I'm doing the 30 day menu plan from the 50 million pound challenge website. I've completed one 30 day round and now we're into the 3rd week of the 2nd round but I've varied the foods a little this round. So far so good. I know with more exercise I'll see greater results. Let me know how things are going with you with the shred and FSD plan together.

It took me a bit to get over my 3 meals and dinner being my *bestest* and biggest, but I can not salute eating smaller meals 5-6 times a day enough! It really really does sustain you thru the day.. and Look at that- Jillians shred! She's a killer workout! And from your blog that is obvious cause your feeling it! lol.
