The amount of time from slipping on the peel and landing on the pavement is exactly one bananosecond.
I do have a secret yen for pink in unexpected places. ~ninja dog
I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
No shred today, but, I did some AB work, push ups, core stretching, and we went kayaking.

I think I'm good for exercise today.

Glad you ladies are still hanging in there!
I just did the shred twice in a row. Seriously.

I was almost done with the first one and the boyfriend walked in and said 'hey, I thought you were gonna wait for me.' so I went through and did it again.
Today was the first time I used the shred and after 5 min i was already starting to sweat. I was using her banish fat. I think I'm going to rotate between the two.

I have 20lbs to drop. At least 10lbs by Aug 18th for vacation

iroc, you're a maniac.

Welcome, bellavida!

So I did the treadmill today and I think I am losing. my. mind. I did a whole hour (y'all just don't even know, at my normal 30 minutes I'm DONE), I jogged/ran some and when I was done I did some exercises and some weight stuff. The music really is helping me go longer. I'm proud of myself for it because when I initially started I wasn't feeling all that great and thought I'd just do my 30 minutes and quit.

Also, I know this might sound silly, but sometimes when I'm walking there is this girl (I think it's a girl) that rollerblades a loop around the park near my house and watching her come around really was motivating me (my treadmill is upstairs where I can look out the window). She's having such a great time and mercy, it looks like so much work, but she's sassy and I enjoyed watching her cruise around the corner at the intersection. I can only see her for a minute, but it was some good motivation.

Springy, I don't know what you're listening to, but Pandora hip hop workout mix station is awesome for the treadmill.

Ya, I think if I can do level 1, twice, I could probably move on to level 2.

I think by Wednesday for sure. That'll be a full 2 weeks.

I'll check out the hip hop! I've got one that is dance music, I did one I titled Lady Gaga, and Kesha really gets me going.

You all inspired me to pull my shred DVD out and give it a go again.

Today was day 1 and I wanted to stop before the first circuit was over but I finished it up. I did take a few too many breaks (that may have been a bit too long as well). But I did it.

I plan to go slow this time and alternate it with another simple exercise plan I found online. I anticipate doing the shred about 3 times a week. I've never gone past level 1 and have never completed more than about 15/16 days.
Ah, it all makes sense now. Goldy is the puppet master!

I did it today and I'm having some *ahem* female issues that are quite uncomfortable and was totally prepared to use that an excuse to not do it, but it wasn't bad as I thought it would be. I'm noticing I can get through more of the cardio without wanting to pass out. Progress!

Okay, so I've done the shred every single day for 12 days (minus my kayaking day). And twice yesterday. I'm bleeding like the shower scene in Psycho today and my knees hurt from my double dose of Jillian yesterday. I went for a short walk today, and did some arm toning, but I'm feeling SO guilty about not doing it today.

Don't you dare feel guilty! There is absolutely nothing wrong with skipping a day!!!

Level 2 sucks balls. I'll admit, I didn't make it all the way through without stopping a second here and there.

I also think I broke my bra and may have pulled a groin muscle.

*pant pant pant*

It took at lot of motivation to work out today but i did it. So day 2 is scratch off.

Do I have to work out day after day to get the same affect? U have class Tuesday and Thursday evenings and don't think I can work in a work out those days.
