Well, my “30 Day Shred” became more of a “do 15 days of this video, and throw in some running/biking/strength training when you get bored” — which I did. It’s probably a no-duh moment, but a 20 minute video on repeat isn’t going to work miracles. But it was a good tool, and I’m glad I own it. I plan on popping it in on days (like today) when leaving the house isn’t at all appealing (it’s 116º out, ouch).
Anyway, I’d be lying if I was super excited about my results — I’m not. I don’t see any bit of difference from the original stats taken a month ago. But the measuring tools that be indicate a small change.
Weight: -2 lbs
Upper waist: -.5″
Lower waist: -.5″
Everything else: The same. Which is ok, because I’m not too worried about the numbers.
At any rate, I’m looking forward to continuing my fitness expedition. The harsh reality is that with a baby, it’s not as easy as it used to be to set a summer goal and go balls to the wall. So I’m trying (trying) to make some personal goals this month that are obtainable.
Run 3 miles, 3x a week (I’m not into waking up early… and it doesn’t dip below 105º until after 9pm, so I’m still considering the “how” here.
Strength train 2x a week
Give up soda completely. (Except when I go see Harry Potter. This will be a tough goal. I’m not a huge soda drinker, but I like the caffeine rush and the bubbles when the craving strikes.)
Three goals seems really doable.
