February-March exercise and 30 Day Shred Progress Update

Sunday, March 29, 2009

I'm blogging to track my 30 day shred progress. I'm planning to shred 2-3 times a week along with my current biking routine. I started with 3 lb weights and added in 5 and 7 lb weights after 11 days.

02/08/09- 30 Day shred Level 1, Day 1.
I thought it was hard but not impossibly hard. Not liking the bicycle abs. The next day I was sore in my shoulders and chest.

02/09/09- Biking- 38 min

02/10/09- day off, although I did get some walking in. Our 4 year anniversary!

02/11/09- Biking- 43 min

02/12/09- 30 Day shred Level 1, Day 2
Much easier than the first day.

02/13/09- Day off

02/14/09- Day off- does shopping count as exercise? I was exhausted. ;)

02/15/09- Another day off. Family commitments and poor planning on my part. What was I thinking??

02/16/09- 30 Day shred Level 1, Day 3
A bit hard today. Probably because I took 3 days off! bad. bad. bad.

02/17/09- 30 Day shred Level 1, Day 4
I could definitely tell I did it two days in a row, but it felt good. My DH did some of it with me and he was impressed. I think I need to buy some 3 & 5 lb weights soon.

S 02/28/09- 30 Day shred Level 1, Day 8
Still challenging but it is getting easier.
Tried to buy 5 lb weights today but Target was out. Annoying. And, I'm a dork who wants my weight set to match so I didn't buy the set I saw at the drug store.

S 03/01/09- 30 Day shred Level 1, Day 9
The Shred is feeling pretty good now. Some exercises are much easier. Some are still challenging. I'm trying to decide if I want to stay at level 1 for more than 10 days. Decisions, decisions.

M 03/02/09- 30 Day shred Level 1, Day 10!
Well, it's still challenging. I was tired. My arms got tired. Not sure that I'm ready to move on to level 2 just yet, so I think I'll wait.
