Shedding and Shredding on Exante!

    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!

    Good luck! Well done for starting again, I think the diary is a massive help! I have the 30DS gathering dust somewhere... May try to hunt it out, dust it off and give it a go!

    Thank you! Got up this morning and I ache all over.. It kind of feels good though! Feeling quite lethargic though.. Think I need to increase my water intake. I have a chart with 30 squares on the fridge which I check off when the 100% day and 30DS are complete.. Helps me see that the same as 20 odd minutes is not THAT long neither is 30 days really!

    So far so good today, usual warm morning shake with extra water and coffee. Lots of water and peppermint tea and my afternoon shake. Went for a walk this afternoon and my aches feel better after it. Can't say I am exactly looking forward to 30DS later but I am hoping to push myself a bit more and not stop so easily.

    I've had some bad news re. a new job and won't be able to start as soon as I had hoped.. so now I am in between jobs which is going to make things tough. But hey, at least I won't be spending money on food!! It also makes me more determined that sticking to this will be the one thing I can make sure goes right!!
