Day 13, 30 Day Shred

Day 3 of Level 2

Can I just say that Level 2 is no freaking joke? When I was doing Level 1, I didn't need to drink water through it, I could drink afterward and be just fine. Nooooot true for level 2 (hey, I rhymed). Between each circuit, I am sipping down some water...this level is intense!

I am loving how I feel afterward though, I feel like I accomplished something when I finish it, and I just love that it is only 27 minutes (with warm up and cool down). It seems to be the right amount of time, right when I feel like I can't do any more, it is over..done...finite!

I have been looking up her other videos, the burn fat boost metabolism and her no more trouble zones. I am thinking once I am finished with the 30 day shred, I am going to start adding those into the mix. Right now, I want to finish the shred and get some strength and endurance and just see where this takes me before I start another grueling regiment.

It's funny, when I was on Level 1, I kinda couldn't wait till level two, as much as level 2 is kicking my butt, I am not hoping it will fly by because that only means its time for level 3. If level 2 is killing me, consider me dead with level 3!

I have to say I am very proud of myself...I have done it EVERYDAY so far. Even the days I had to get up earlier than usual to take care of stuff, I just woke up earlier to make sure I got my workout in. The old me would have stayed in bed.

I feel if I missed a day due to laziness, I would let myself down, and let down my friends who are in the support group with me. Now, if I had to miss it for a legitimate reason, so be it...but if it is in my control..I will do it.

My scale isnt dropping, but when I look in the mirror, I look more slender, my arms have nice definition to them and my face doesn't look puffy. So drop in the scale or not, I am on my way to a new me, and I couldn't be more excited.

I also want to say that I am very proud of myself for giving up pop, one of the things I thought I was going to struggle with so much. I went off it and then last Saturday had some during my girls night and it came back to bite me in the A. Ick, I felt so bad and haven't touched it since. I haven't even craved it.

I also went to Olive Garden for my daughter's B-day and I didn't feel satisfied with it, I felt awful over it too...I am just excited for where this is going.

7 more days before next weigh in, pics and measurements.

I feel this exact same way. I don't remember Level One kicking my rear this bad! But no matter how bad I want to stop, I keep going and like you said, it's not that much time. 27 minutes fly by any other time! LOL Great job Melissa! =D I'm glad we have each other to keep us motivated!
