Results of my Ripped in 30 + 6 Week 6 Pack Challenge!

Friday, June 24, 2011

I can't believe I finished!!! A little less than 6 weeks ago, I challenged myself to do 30 days of Ripped in 30 and 30 days of 6 Week 6 Pack within 6 weeks. I had just had LASIK surgery 3 days before that, and before LASIK I had just finished the 30 Day Shred, but I was ready to jump right in. I wasn't sure if I would be able to keep up with both videos, as I had no idea what I was getting into, but I managed to push through and complete my challenge even through LASIK recovery, a strained rib muscle, a cold, and blistered feet! (from stupidly walking 60 blocks in strappy high heels) I rarely took more than one day complete off from both videos a week. Some days I did only one video, but mostly I did two. I progressed through the levels the way I was suppose to, and I am very proud of myself for finishing! Immediately I could see tons of results. I recommend either of these videos to people trying to build muscle, although I wouldn't recommend doing both at the same time unless you are really trying to reach a goal quick (I wanted to be bikini ready by summer!)

Here are my results:

Weight: I only lost about 4 pounds in these 6 weeks. That's fine though, because I gained a ton of muscle!

Measurements: I lost 2 inches each off my stomach and hips, one inch of each my thighs, and a half inch each of my calves and arms!

Pictures: The first pic in each set is my before pic for the 6 weeks. These were taken right after I finished the 30 Day Shred 6 weeks ago. The second pic in each set is from today. Do you see a difference? I can definitely tell in person, but sometimes the camera sucks at showing progress, lol.

Here are some other afters:

For my next fitness challenge, I am just going to aim to do 30 minutes of anything 5 times a week for the next 30 days because I will be traveling for 24 of those 30 days! Yikes! My goal is not to lose all this progress! I will mostly be putting together my own circuit training and doing videos if I have access to them. Wish me luck!

    AMAZING results!! I'm going to Hawaii in 8 weeks and was sitting here this morning wondering if I really have time to tone up before I go. You just TOTALLY motivated me and made me realize I can do it!

    I didn't follow her meal plan, just ate within my calorie ranges most days.

    You look amazing! Did you do the meal plan that Jillian suggests? I'm doing Ripped in 30, but so far I haven't followed her meal plan.

    thanks everybody!!! All the hard work has definitely been worth it for me and I'm looking forward to keeping it up. Joanna, I didn't really get anything extra in these past 6 weeks. No running, and maybe a few Zumba classes toward the beginning of the 6 weeks, but thats it. It was tough just getting the videos in!

    Lookin good! Yes, you can definitely see a difference!! Your stomach is trimming up nicely!

Remember progress is 80% diet, 20% exercise (Jillian says this!) so just keep up with your eating while traveling and you should be ok =)

    Of course, once again the pictures are wildly different sizes! I'll become consistent with picture size at some point hopefully!
