Shred The Hell Outta My Body and Dignity
Yes. I have joined the hype. I have done a Biggest Loser Challenge and forgot to post that our team came in 3rd place. I lost 5lbs and have managed to keep it off...so far.
The only bad news is that since then I have not found the time to get back into the gym. After Lindsay spotlighted me on the latest issue of BackTalk I snooped around some other blogs and found out some women were trying this thing called the 30 Day Shred.
Women like Melanie of Big Mama, Nancy of Mom, Ma'am, Me, Kristen of Motherhood Uncensored and the team at The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans have all jumped on the bandwagon.
They spoke about how it kicked their butts and I figured they were eggagerating a bit.
Let's just say that last night was Day 2 Level 1 and like I told one of my friends, I literally had a tear roll down my cheek.
Oh the burn. I feel the burn. My calves, thighs, butt, sides, abs, boobs and arms ache. I stretched out really well after having a warm shower but I still woke up stiff and in pain this morning.
I also decided that I would take this so seriously that I would post before and after pictures. Yes, REAL. LIVE. pictures of MY BODY!!! I know, I typed it and can hardly believe it. As I type this I am tempted to delete the pictures....but I won't.
So I measured myself as well. I mean, I want to be able to track if I lose .000001 inches off of any part of my body. Just sayin'.
So here are my stats.
Hips: 40 in
Waist: 32 in
And *sigh* here. are. the. photos.
I'm sorry if I scare any of you away.
Ok here goes.
