Body Stats after Level One of 30 Day Shred
Taken: June 18,2012
Yippee…I’m seeing some results
Weight: 126 lbs (-2)
Waist - 29.5” (-.5)
Thighs: 20.5” (-.5)
Lower arms: 8.5”
Goal= It would be nice to lose 3 more pounds by the end of the programme, as well as 1.5 inches from my waist.
Day One, Level One: May 20- Although it is a 20min workout I found myself stopping twice, first to get a drink of water and the other to rest. I found it difficult to do the push-ups even when I went down on my knees. I also found it a bit challenging to keep my stomach tucked in throughout the workout. Now that it is over, I’m feeling pumped and I’m not experiencing any pain.
Day Two, Level One: May 21- I almost did not start this workout due to how much pain my calves were in. The pain only started in the afternoon. I started the workout at 11:45pm and ended @ 12:11am. I did not put the video on pause this time, although my legs were burning me throughout. I still found it difficult to keep my stomach tucked in though. I also did a few of the normal push-ups before resorting to doing the easier version of it, on my knees.
Day Three, Level One: May 22- Oh the agony of my aching thighs and even the bottom of my stomach hurts. Like yesterday I started the workout after 11pm. And because of the pain, I found myself following Aneita for the most part, in that I stuck to the easier modified version of the workouts. There were some points during the workout where I never felt as much pain but when it came to lunges and the squats I definitely felt the pain. With regards to doing push-ups, I decided to just stick with doing the knee version because I’m still having a difficulty with doing the normal one.
Day Four, Level One: May 23- So I did this workout in the morning.And happily I wasn’t in as much pain like the previous days. I found myself enjoying the cardio parts of the programme more than anything else. And my endurance has definitely improved.
May 24: Because of my busy day I did not get to do day 5 of the workout has planned.
Day Five, Level One: May 25- I’m no longer in any pain that I’m pretty glad for. And because my endurance has gotten better I feel like I’m going through the workout with greater ease.
May 26-28: between visiting the country & laziness I didn’t get to exercise during these days.
Day Six, Level One: May 29- I finally came around to exercising after the long break. During the workout I realized that my endurance had fallen & I had to stop the video quite a few times, so that I could catch my breath. I also found that I’m getting a little bored of the exercise routine
May 30-31: I attended a seminar for most of the day, then in the evening my mom came to visit and with that I didn’t have much time to work out. The next day I continued to spent my time with my mom & felt too lazy to exercise.
Day Seven, Level One: June 10- After many days of neglecting my workout schedule I finally felt the urge to start back again. I workout late in the night and found myself pausing the video, to drink water after I completed circuit one then two. In addition, although it’s been a while since I had watched the routine, I still felt a bit bored from it, but I have three more days left of level one to go.
Day Eight, Level One: June 11- I’ve gotten use to working out late at night. I ran through the workout without stopping this time.
Day Nine, Level One: June 16- So I ran through the routine pretty easily. Now there is just one day to go. BTW I love butt kicks.
Day Ten, Level One: June 17- So after so many pauses, I can finally say,LEVEL ONE IS COMPLETE. By the way, my thighs are feeling firmer; no wonder after all those squats. Glad to be through with this level especially since I was getting quite bored of the routine. I also noticed that whenever I take breaks/ lazy days I find it twice as hard to start back again. I plan on curbing this during level two.

There is so much to be grateful for, yet I can’t help but focus on all the bad. The mistakes I’ve made, the regrets I have, forever reflected in my mind.
Conflicting with the fact that God knows best and that he has a plan for my life.

So the summer is in full swing & as much as I’m focused on getting a job, I’m also focused on improving my life & self. In this regard I’m working on a few of my goals this summer…
Lately I’ve been having mood swings, battling with feelings of inadequacy and so forth.
So, in order to get myself out of this funk I’m in, I finally started reading the book The Secret by Rhonda Byrne (this is way after watching the movie & listening the audio version).
Time to reapply the Law of Attraction in my life.
