Week 10…done!

Believe it or not, this is not the first time I have embarked upon a shredtastic challenge. Last year I did a 70 days shred. Yesterday was day 70, so now, I’m not only beating my record, but I’m on the home stretch. Just 29 days to go! This is the only reason I managed to get up an go to the gym this morning. My alarm went off and I, very, almost rolled over and went back to sleep. But then I remembered how long I have left.


Last week, as part of super-sizing the shred, I managed 7 exercise sessions across 6 days…and I didn’t die. Not only that but the fat step rewarded me for my efforts with a wee pound off, which means I hit my mini March goal of reaching a stone, and I even did it with a week to spare. Cocky or what!? I also decided it was about time to do measurements again. I could already feel it in my clothes but I couldn’t believe the total loss that I had in centimetres since day 1. Cue some serious smugness…

Neck: – 2cm
Chest: – 4cm
Waist: – 8.5cm
Hips: – 7cm
Thigh: – 1.5cm
Arm: – 2.5cm
Total: – 25.5cm

This week I will continue to supersize the shred with the following exercise sessions planned:

Monday AM – Gym
Monday PM – Insanity
Tuesday AM – Gym
Wednesday – Rest day
Thursday AM – Gym
Friday AM – Gym
Saturday – PT
Sunday – Gym

I’ve even planned a cheeky extra session than last week, so it’s 8 exercise across 6 days. My fat burning potential has been cranked right up and I can’t get enough of it…well, the DOMS I can! The DOMS today were unreal. I went to the gym with a friend yesterday, and to say he put me through my paces is an understatement. I ache…but we did get to use some magic chalk that comes out like a cream, then when you blow on it, it becomes chalk! I’m so easily pleased.

I might be on week 10 but it is never too late for you to get started on your week 1. Make a plan, set your rules, make small changes, make big changes, but make some changes…otherwise you’re just staying where you are, and where’s the fun in that!
