Dear Happy Healthy Tumblers,
Today, was one of my 30 Day Shred experience. I had heard about the 30 Day Shred (who hasn’t who is interested in fitness and has a tumblr account?). It was kind of a happy accident that I started the shred today. The 16th of March is a very special day for me, a day which marked the beginning of a new phase in my life and a day where I showed true strength. That is all I’m going to say on Tumblr, you get what I mean, it’s a special personal day for me. I love love love reading blogs. I check some blogs daily for new posts. One of the blogs I followed recently uploaded a video on YouTube reviewing her experience of the 50 sorry 30 Day Shred (it’s 01.18 in the morning, I’m typing this out on my laptop under the sheets because I lost the whole post I wrote on my mobile). This blogger is not a fitness blogger. She mostly blogs about fashion, beauty and a bit of lifestyle. So, for me it was nice to get a bit of perspective on her view of the 30 Day Shred. Her review was very honest. She seemed challenged by the shred. She also explained how it didn’t really facilitate much recovery time which is something I would be a bit concerned about. But, she did achieve good results and she did put 110% effort into it. She had linked level one video of the 30 Day Shred in the details of the review and this is how I got caught out so to speak ;). I followed the link and like I do a lot, I started watching the video. After a few minutes, I said to myself, why not try and actually do the video since I had a time to do it. And that is where it all began!
I’m really glad, I actually tried level one. Jillian is like a super doper coach. She knew exactly what to say to motivate me and make me stick with the video. Sometimes, I start workout videos and I find some of the exercises a bit too challenging, so I give up and scope YouTube for less challenging workout videos. But Jillian reminded me, that I needed to step out of my comfort zone to make the chances that I want for my body. Admittedly, I did pause the video once or twice or more, but I kept with it and didn’t skip any exercises! I defiantly need to build more endurance in my legs. Another thing I loved about the video was the modifications and all the flat tummies! I want one of those flat tummies! I loved that I sweated and felt the burn throughout the entire video.
I can’t wait for the next 29 days. I will keep ye posted on my progress. No doubt, there will be times when it will feel too much but I am strong. This video was such a challenge , I know all the others will be too! Bring it on!
