Although my first week had it's ups and downs overall it was a success! My first goal of 3 is to be down to 180 on February 12th. This week I was right on track with losing 3 pounds. I have to admit I am slightly disappointed because in the past I would lose a couple more pounds when I started a "healthy lifestyle". This time around there is a BIG difference though!! After my first week I still feel fully motivated, which is so much better than losing a couple more pounds right off the bat.
Last Tuesday I started with the 30 day shred and found the hard way that the stretching provided in the video was not nearly enough. I had to take several days off the shred because I could barely move, as my muscles hurt so badly. In the meantime I used a recumbent bike which was less impact, and allowed me to still get a workout in comfortably. I've only did the shred once more after the initial time but it was a bit easier, and I made sure to do my own stretches before and after and it made a world of a difference. I also did some zumba on the wii, and yesterday I started the January Jump start challenge, which seriously kicked my butt!! Good thing it was only 8 minutes or I would of been on the floor. I'm a little scared to see what today's video is, lol.
