So Thursday was the start of Level 2 of the 30 day shred.  Man I forgot just how hard level 2 is all the plank moves.  But I will push through and get in shape :).  I rode on the trainer for an hour about 10 miles since that is about my pace right now and then swam for 30 mins for a total of 1/2 a mile.  All in all a productive day burning about 1100 calories.  No my calorie intake did not support that.  I am not sure yet how to get my calorie higher for days like that without junk food, but I am working on it.  My Stamina is for sure improving though.

Monday and Wednesday

There was no working out on Monday and Wednesday :(.  It kind of sucked yes.  But lets not look back and moan we shall keep pushing forward and keep our body moving.

Sunday November 13, 2011

Well week one down for the 30 day shred :).  I am doing good.  The first two weeks are the hardest.  So if I can get my eating figured out I will be making some solid weight loss progress.  We ate out all last week :(.  However Chris and I are challenging ourselves to not eat out until Christmas (or longer).  When we reach our challenge goal we will be rewarded with money to buy whatever we want.  Not a night out to eat :).  See how I did that.  I went for a ride outside today.  Did 10.2 miles in just over an hour so about a 10 mile an hour pace.  It was great and felt great.  I did Day 7 of the 30 day shred.  Most days are 60-90 mins worth of working out but this week will start getting longer.  Each week from here on out will get longer since I have to work up to be able to ride 200 miles :).  I will weigh in either Monday or Tuesday for my one week check.  I hope that by the end of next week I will start feeling better about myself despite my weight.  Keep watching for more updates.  I will try to update more often.

5 Days in

I am 5 days into my 30 Day Shred. I am also running, biking and swimming. yesterday I burned about 1000 calories go me. I feel like a biggest loser contestant lol. So far I feel great and am enjoying working out. I am sleeping better and feeling better about my body. I hope the pounds just melt away lol. On Wednesday I was down to 187.7 so we will see what it looks like next week. I don't think I am eating enough as crazy as that sounds. I ate over 1500 calories yesterday but really only left 500 to do daily stuff. Thinking of hiring a running coach to help me. swimming is getting better, stamina is improving. I swam for 45 mins yesterday up from 20 mins last week. I have tried to post from my iPad a couple times but it doesn't seem to work. Hopefully this one posts.
