An overall better mood and positive outlook on life are a few of the benefits I’m enjoying since starting the 30 Day Shred. Not that I wasn’t positive before, but I feel different, and in a good way. My endurance is increasing with each workout and I’m feeling pretty empowered by that. My energy level is greatly increasing and I wake up feeling much better.
My husband joined me in my Day 5 workout. We pushed through and it felt like I experienced an “energy high” afterwards. I know that’s probably not the best word to explain it, but I felt great! I’ve decided that working out with someone else is much more fun and helps the time pass faster. I have to admit I am bored to tears already with this workout, but I know I am not ready to move up to the 2nd level. The music annoys me and I’m sick of doing the same thing over and over. BUT…I promised myself I would do this 30 days and I am!
This morning’s workout marked Day 6 and I’m feeling a little foggy-brained. It was tough making it through the last circuit of cardio. I’m just glad to be done today.
Husband kept me very well-fed this weekend. I just have to brag on him because he is a Grill Master. We’ve enjoyed grilled steaks and chicken with salads the past few days and they were so delicious and healthy! I’ve checked my blood sugar a couple of times and eating healthier is keeping it in check much better. Just another benefit of this healthy lifestyle change! I’m a little discouraged with the scale results, however. I had lost two pounds a few days ago, then somehow regained them by yesterday. It sure makes it hard to want to stick with this when the scale doesn’t really move, but I have to keep going.
We joined the local recreational association yesterday and went swimming. E.B. had a blast and we will probably head there this afternoon also. Yet another great way to get exercise in!
