Let’s rewind a little less than two years ago.  I was just beginning my weight loss journey and was convinced that cardio was the only way to go.  I didn’t need any of that other stuff, right?  Right. (Read with sarcasm.) I came home one day after work in a hurry.  It was 5:20 p.m., and I had to be … [Read more…]

Just checking in! It’s been awhile since I have posted on my personal blog! I have been down for the count lately!

I am on Day4 of Level 3 on the 30-Day Shred, and maybe it’s just me, but it seems to be getting harder each day rather than easier. I mean, I’m already sweating and out of breath after the freaking warm up! By the time I hit circuit 2 I’m ready to die, and when circuit 3 rolls around, sweat is … [Read more…]

Okay, folks, I know times are hard.  Seriously, I do.  If my electricity bill doesn’t come down soon, I may have to consider moving back in with my parents.  If so, you WILL see me go insane. So, how many of us want to go to the gym but can’t afford that gym membership?  OR we would love to have a … [Read more…]

When someone says to me, “oh, you can’t have this cupcake because you’re on a DIET,” or “what diet are you … [Read more…]

So yesterday, I felt like a fumbling, stumbling mess on day 1 of level 2. I should have previewed it like Lisa did! Today was much better because I didn’t feel like I had to stop to keep checking if I was doing to moves right. Here are my thoughts from today! I was not as sore as I hoped to be this … [Read more…]

Did you know that exercise can reduce stress? Okay, I am sure we all HEAR that, but how many of us actually follow that advice? This is a subject that hits close to home with me, and I often find myself slacking on the exercise when I am stressed the most! And I KNOW I would feel better if I just … [Read more…]

First off, I want to ask those of you who are shredding… the last two days I have been having lower back pain and on the left side it goes down into my ass. Not my “soreness” from working my … [Read more…]

I finished Day 10 of Shredding earlier today, Phase 1.  I seem to think about shredding all day long, way before I actually DO IT and long way after it’s DONE.
