Day 2 = Sucker punched in the face!

I totally whooped day 2's ass! Pardon for the bad choice in language, but seriously, it was much easier today!

For all of you Shredders out there, KEEP IT UP! We will get through this together! I feel much less shaky today than I did after yesterday's session and I know that has something to do with all of the water consumption I prepared myself with :) So I was sore, and I know I will be sore tomorrow, but really, it will all be worth it! 

How did I hear about 30 Day Shred? Well, one of my older sisters was preparing for a cruise and decided to do the 30 Day Shred, however, this sister hasn't worked out since... well since a long time and so she was so sore she couldn't function. It scared me! I hadn't really "worked out" in about 7 months! But, then I saw another friend doing it, and I did more research and found that I CAN do it. It IS possible! And like I urged in yesterday's post, HAVE A PARTNER! Make someone do it with you! You will keep each other on track, and it is always easier to feed off of each other's success and excitement!

So aside from being able to feel every muscle group in my thighs move when I walk, I am very pleased :) I haven't been this sore since my senior year's cheerleading camp... haha I guess that means I am working hard! I am going to make my older sister re-start Jillian's Hell on Earth workout. She can do it too! 

A little over-motivated... I THINK NOT! I am just feeling good and know that I can reach my goals! SO CAN YOU!

Now I am going to go get a skinny mocha from Starbucks... you know, because that's always a good thing when you're trying to get into shape... *rolls eyes* Can't deny that I'm a hormonal woman that needs her caffeine fix when she's PMS-ing! (I don't know how my man puts up with it!)

And that's all I have to say today <3

Not as sore as I expected... Not bad!

So, I am not quite as sore as I expected from yesterday... I don't know if that is a bad thing, or a good thing... Do you guys think I didn't work hard enough? I mean my legs felt like jello... my arms were wobbly the whole night. 

*sigh* I don't know! What have you all experienced during your 30 Day Shreds? Any new Shredders out there?

Let me know your thoughts!

And that's all I have to say today <3

My Thighs are the SAME size!!!

Haha so I decided to do the 30 Day Shred... or as I like to refer to is as Jillian's Hell on Earth Workout! YAY! .... I feel dead. Really dead. Like my arms are still shaking after 20 minutes of being done. But, I have a partner in crime! My little sister is doing the Shred with me too! It is much easier to Shred when you have someone motivating you! And besides, I have found my wedding dress and I don't want flabby arms on my wedding day!

So, Jillian is really motivating, and I only had to stop a couple of times during the cardio because my heart couldn't handle it. I know that sounds weak, but I have a very small heart for an adult, and I do have a heart condition. So, please don't think that I just really am a loser, I'm trying my hardest.

Here are my Day 1 Measurements:

Right Thigh: 24 in.
Left Thigh:   24 in. (haha I totally thought my thighs would be different!)
Hips:           41 in.
Butt:           43 in.
Waist:         31 in. (really sad about this. I used to have a 26 in. waist.)
Right arm:   14 in.
Left arm:     13.5 in. (don't laugh at my arms they are gross!)
Bust:           36 in.

*I didn't weigh myself simply because that's not what my focus is. I want to be toned. If I happen to lose weight along the way, WONDERFUL!*

I will post results each week and feelings toward the workout until the end! I truly cannot wait to see what all happens! My sister was able to start a little bit before me and she says that days 1-3 are the hardest!

I tried to upload my pics... but they won't for some reason upload. They were nasty anyway!

And that's all I have to say today <3

30 Day Shred???

Hey fellow bloggers/followers,

A friend of mine is doing 30 Day Shred by Jillian... Anyone have any input on it? I am looking to start slimming down for my wedding next May (2014 not THIS May... I would die!). I just don't want to not be able to work because I'm so sore from my workout. 

As some of you may know, I work in retail and am on my feet for long periods of time and need to be able to move quickly from one customer to the next. If this is going to be like P90X and kill me, then I will not do it, however, the result photos that people have posted are quite promising! 

So, calling all couch potatoes turned fitness fanatics! Let me know what you think! Shout out a comment down below and help me get in shape!!!

Also, if I go with 30DS I will keep you all posted with week-by-week photos and posts about my excursion into skinny mode... or less flabby mode... whichever you feel is most accurate!

And that's all I have to say today <3

52 Week Challenge: Update!

Hey guys! So I thought I would update you on how my 52 Week Challenge is going! I am now at $28! So cool! So I do want to let anyone know, who is like me, that if you have a savings account that you are putting your money into, make sure you don't have any type of service fee. Each month I have to put an extra $4 into my account because I have a service fee... I totally didn't think of that before I started this, so, I am headed down to my bank later this week to see if there is a different type of savings account for me without a fee. I hope you are all on your way to a bunch of money saved! Let me know how its going with a comment below!

Also, I wanted to update everyone and tell you that Brandon and I have officially started planning and paying for our wedding! So exciting! I cannot tell you how it feels to be experiencing this rush every time we sign a contract for a vendor :) I am so happy to have found someone who loves me for who I am and can put up with my... well... crap. Haha, I will be writing a blog about my wedding dress outing in a few weeks! That should be fun! 

If you guys ever want me to write about something special, or add anything like pictures or videos about something, just let me know. I will be MORE than happy to write about what you guys are interested in! Just leave a comment and I will write about it!!! Fashion, food, school, weddings; you name it, I will write about it :D I love you all, and thank you for making my Klout Score rise each time you read!

And that's all I have to say today <3
