Shredhead Update: If I squint, it looks like it's working


Just started Level 3 of the 30-Day Shred. I've been consistent except for a few days I've taken off here and there.


So, how's it going?

Well, I'm not going to weigh myself anymore because my weight is really going nowhere. And, while I know my weight is "just fine", seeing that little needle hover in exactly the same place day after day does nothing for my psyche.

Also a week ago, I was visiting my wonderful Physical Therapist who helps me with my neck-and-shoulder issues, and I was complaining that I still have that "tire" around my midsection. She suggested that I need to up my cardio by a wee bit to try to burn off that extra fat. So, after Shredding for 20 minutes, this past week I have added 10 minutes of cardio on our recumbent bike.

Is this working?

Here is where I was when I posted my first post on March 7:

Photobucket

And here is me on Day 20 of my Shred:


Photobucket

(honestly, I can't tell if my pants are hiked up more or if the bulge is reduced)

Here's another angle; taken at the start of March:

Photobucket



And now:

Photobucket

Heck I don't see much, do you? But, I do see something here, which wasn't before:

Photobucket

Oh yeah, a little bitty muscle trying to come forth.

I'll be back in ten days with another round of humiliating photos, so stay tuned!

The pants may be hiked up a tiny bit more (compare distance between pants and belly button), but there's NO WAY that they made that difference. You have totally slimmed down/firmed up! Also check out the butt firmness difference. Way awesome!

There is less of you in the after. Good job! But your reduction is NOT enough to make me want to join the Shred gang. That Jillian lady scares me.

Oh My Gawd you're brave but you look better in your before pictures than I do now! I've heard about the Shred. I should probably do something. My youngest is 6 going on 7 and I'm tired of my muffin top!
Good for you and all the others who've had success.
You look GREAT!!

Hugs!!

Wow! Damn you're looking great!

You know, I have the DVD now. I as all pumped to start, the DVD was late being shipped, I lost my mojo and it hasn't come back. That is until now. Seeing actual results from someone I know changes everything!!

I see biceps! Keep it goin' hot mama! I had chowda, stuffed lobsta AND ice cream for dinner, so after 10,000 calories, I will have Billy Blanks kicking my flabby butt tomorrow. Oy.

To begin with, you are little. To me the after pictures make you look a bit firmer. Keep up the good work!

It's not the pants, it's working! It's working!

You have inspired me to get back on the Shred. I'll be calling you in two days to bitch at you because I'm in pain.

You. Are. Rocking. It! Congrats!

We are going to be one toned bunch of chicks at BlogHer. Maybe I should walk around asking people to try to punch me in the stomach.
