Shredded

Today, I was supposed to write a sappy post. But sappy turned in to depressing woe-is-me talk... so I'll save that for another day.

-------------------------------------------------

I have mentioned here before that I was doing the Shred.

I ordered the DVD in freaking January but didn't get on the bandwagon until June. And then The Boy broke up with me and I tried to keep it going... but I was done with it. Too many memories of doing it together.

So I finally did it this time. I finished a whole 30 days - if not 34 days. I took a few days off for a wedding and then I got sick... but I was bound and determined to finish. And I did.

So now, we talk results.

I took before and after pictures but I honestly can't see a difference. Unfortunately, I have not developed a 6-pack. Oh well.

Over my whole body, I've lost about a centimeter, or just under half an inch.

I lost that much on each calf, each thigh.... so yay. I was definitely hoping for a little bit more... but whatever.

I lost about 1.2 inches on my stomach, which is exciting.

I lost an inch on my boobs, so now all my bras are too loose. Freakin awesome, I tell you. Not.

I lost 4 pounds, which I am actually thrilled about. In my entire life, I'm not sure I've ever been able to lose 4 pounds, so that's great. Plus, I can definitely tell I've gained muscle so I'm sure that one of the reasons that number stayed so small.

So, in conclusion, I think I needed to watch what I was eating a wee bit more to see better Shred results.

And also, God doesn't like women because he always makes their boobs shrink first. Geesh. Men.

Up next: No More Trouble Zones.

Hold me, I'm scared. And also, I'm taking a break today.... because I can.

Happy Thursday!!

Congratulations on your results! 4 pounds A LOT in a month... especially when you are as tiny as you are!! Make sure you celebrate your results, thats the fun part of all your hard work!

Kassie said...

Congrats on finishing! I'm very impressed--I think I lasted about a week on the darn thing.

And thanks so much for your comment the other day. I really appreciated it so much.

Southern Belle said...

This is awesome. You have inspired me to take the plunge. All I want is to lose anywhere from 5-8 lbs. That's it. Thanks alot for posting this and responding to my tweets yesterday=)

Megan said...

I did The Shred for awhile and then quit, I will probably start it back up soon!

The Ratpack said...

Congrats on your great results!! I know you have increased your strength and endurance big time, which is harder to measure. Keep up the good work, and I can't wait to hear a review of No More Trouble Zones!

julie and jon said...

Wow, congrats! I've been thinking about trying the shred for a while now...maybe I will follow your lead!

The Shabby Princess said...

So yeah, with the boobs thing. NOT COOL. I lost about 12 pounds earlier this year (gained it all back, but, whatever) and I swear, they were the first thing to go--and not big AT ALL to begin with. Sure.

Aly said...

I'm on Day 3 of 30DS and I'm hurting all over, but I am determined to complete it, and hopefully stick with it after! Good luck with the next video, keep us updated!

Gwen said...

I think I'm going to pick up the shred and start doing it in addition to my kickboxing classes. I might not walk again but I'm going to be skinny again one day. LOL!!! You did great and YAY for 4 pounds!!! XOXO

Lucky in Love said...

So proud of you for finishing the Shred! I tried...and failed. But hey...I hated it...so there. :)

I'm wishing you lots of luck with your next video!

And I know what you mean about the boobs. They were the first to go when I lost a lot of weight...which was so, so sad.

Annie said...

great job on finishing the shred!! i've tried and failed a few times. although i do have to say when i stick with it on level 2 i see results. i might cry if i lost the girls ;)

looking forward to hearing how you like no more trouble zones!

Katiesperk said...

Way to stick with it. That is impressive! And 4 lbs is something to brag about!

etta said...

Great job finishing the 30 days! I don't think I could keep it up for that long.

Krista said...

Great results!! I had extremely high expectations of myself this morning - decided to start The Shred AFTER doing 30 minutes of pilates/yoga. I got about 5 minutes into the Shred and nearly died. Guess I'll have to start tomorrow! :)

♥Aubrey said...

Yep...yep...and more YEP. The tattas go first :( Thank goodness we can pay for them :)-

KAC said...

Congrats with sticking with it. I did it off and on this summer but I really need to pick a time when I can do all 30 days in a row!

Allison said...

I'm proud of you for doing it for that long. I tried and couldn't do it. I got frustrated when the pounds didn't come off, and I wasn't seeing results after 2 weeks.

Andhari said...

you finished? oh wow what a superhero!")

Kristin said...

I'm currently trying to get up the motivation to Shred. Still sore from yesterday. Ah ha

MWK said...

What do you think of the trouble spots? I bought it a few weeks ago and am starting tomorrow, yes I am a slacker! And hello- I commented on another post, love your blog, I'm Molly.
