I have just completed my 3rd day on Exante and my 2nd day of Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred (30DS) DVD. I thought I would start a diary as this is not my first time on a VLCD (in fact I have been attempting restarts for a while now) and I always wondered how exercising would affect losses. This time however I have a holiday coming up in 8 weeks and considering I am miserable in the nice weather we are having here I know it will be worse while away. I can't change the fact that if I had started x weeks ago I could already have lost x pounds, but what I can do is carry on 100% from here! Day 1: Was easier than I had anticipated and my willpower carried me through. I've only got shakes so I just have any 3 of them. Day 2: I started to worry that I didn't have anywhere near enough time to feel bikini ready and so I dusted off my 30DS DVD.. it was awful! I stopped quite a few times but when it finished I did think "well it's not THAT long at least". Day 3: Again 3 shakes and 30DS.. I thought it may have been easier tonight - it wasn't! In fact I think knowing certain bits were coming may have made it harder.. people usually say mind over matter in the sense that they motivate themselves, I'm the opposite.. "Oh, I can't do another set of Jumping Jacks" leads to me jogging on the spot already!! Anyway, sorry for rambling.. here's to another 100% day tomorrow!
