    30 day shred anyone?

    I had a sneaky midweek peek on the scales yesterday and to my horror I have put a lb on despite having been really good.

    This has prompted me into action, so I got up early this morning and started the 30 day shred. I've never done it before, but heard from lots of people that if you stick to it you can really see a difference.

    For anyone who doesn't know the 30 day shred is a 25 minute intense workout that you do daily. You can buy the DVD or it is available on you tube. Basically you do level 1 for 10 days, then level 2 for 10 days and then level 3 for 10 days and at the end of it you can lose up to 20lb, but more importantly you should lose inches from waist, thighs, hips, arms etc and be much more toned. It's based on circuits including strength, abs and cardio. Most people seem to think you don't get a day off, but I also read that you should take a rest day every 7th day. All you need is a bit of space at home and some small weights/dumbbells ( I used can of tomatoes this morning as I didn't want to us the excuse of not having any for not getting started.

    I didn't find it as hard as I thought I would, although the abs section was hardest for me. I was trying to pace myself at the start though so I could do it all. I felt so good afterwards I even did a mile on the treadmill, so I might go for it a bit more tomorrow. I'm now at my desk and work and feeling really full of energy, although I'm expecting to feel it all over tomorrow.

    Anybody want to join me in doing it for a bit of support, or anybody done it before and can give me any advise?

    Thanks x

    Ok, so I managed to get up early and do the shred before work.

    I can definitely feel it from yesterday, especially in my arms.

    Getting out of bed to do it was hard today, especially as I was later to bed than normal. I must remember to get some early nights.

    Once I was up and doing it I quite enjoyed it in a kind of perverse way, and still had enough energy for a quick half mile on the treadmill afterwards. It's funny but I have been struggling to get up early to go on the treadmill, but give myself a "you must do this workout every day" rule and suddenly I want to get on the treadmill as well.

    I bought some weights yesterday. A small set of girlie "Davina" weights. I used the lightest ones which are only 600g. On some exercise this was plenty and I was struggling, but there are a few exercises where I think I could push on to the next weight 1kg. I will try it tomorrow. As Jillian says you can't expect to workout for only 20 minutes a day and for it to be easy. Need to push myself to get results.

    I'm finding the cardio part of the workout quite easy and pushed myself a bit more today to jump higher and faster and follow Natalie. The strength stuff, some I need to work on more. I still have to rest between press ups so I need to work on these, and I think I need to work on my squats as I'm struggling with form. The abs part of the workout is the hardest for me. Luckily for me it's also the shortest. I hope I can build this up in the next week so I don't have to stop at all during sets.

    Head is still in the zone so hope I can keep it there!
