"I dont want you phoning it in..."

so yeah, this week has been about exercising, and the pain that I am hoping will gain me a svelte figure.

I have brought the 30 Day Shread,
which is a DVD training program that makes you do 20 (more like 30 all in) minutes of intense, insane, painful but actually good once you start to enjoy it torture. It’s by Jullian Michaels (who apparently was on the Biggest Loser) and the quote is one of her sayings. I have done four days of it now and my upper arms really rather hurt today, this may be due to my increasing the weights to 2kg today. I will have buff arms... oh yes!


No pain no gain


I have also brought a swimming costume to guilt me into going swimming and a new sports bra more resembling of an inquisition devise than a piece of lingerie.

Well I can't really get to a gym as I don't get home till 8 as it is! So I though this would be a good start and the every day habits a good one! I've lost half a stone and now want to work on the wobbly bits.

I am also sure that 2kgs is nothing, but a) it is to me and b) she makes you do the bicep curls AT THE SAME TIME as lunges ... That's just mean, right

Oh that sounds a bit harsh! I might have to try that :)

Well maybe you can find some cheap/free equiptment on
freecycle/ebay. I think in your house you might just
have enough room to put it so you can have a small mini
gym ;)

Yeah, I am down to 13.5 stone, one stone to go but its
mainly my excess fat I have to get rid of too. Hope you
reach your goals but be careful and don't do yourself
an injury ;)

She keeps going on about small muscles and big ones and working them together. I have to be careful cause I the knees but the chap wants some stuff for when he is able to weight bear again.

Thats good! Well done. X

A friend of mine is doing a months shred - initially I think she found it a bit wimpy, but as it's upscaleable she's kicked it up a notch or two to where it gets results. And hurts...

Personally an hour in the gym yesterday has left me pleasantly aching!

I've found level one bearable - I've upped the weights so it's a bit tougher and will go up again in a couple of days if I find it easy. Then I get level two! For me it wasn't that wimpy, but it seems to be able to fit into the rest of my life.

I don't get home till 8 so simply cannot fit a gym schedule in to my life - DVDs are the way for me I think. And I can really throw myself at it and grunt without anyone else seeing!

Yes, the ability to slip the exercise into the day was a selling point I think...I'm rubbish at the gym. Managed to get into a routine, lost it and never manage to get back into it. Always tomorrow, I think & never do >_<
