Still Committed To Shredding

It's day 1,000,504 of the Shred. Ha, it only feels like it! It's more like day 14 or 15. I did skip 3 days, but on one day I did it 2x, so it's really like I only skipped 2 days. I keep plugging along, sometimes following Anita (particularly stuff in plank position) and sometimes Natalie (okay, maybe mostly Anita).

I love love love the resistance training. I've heard this is the key to weight loss. I hope it's also the key to taut arms. My arms are so flabby. I really carry the weight on top...the top 1/3. I canNOT wear a dress because it's so tight on top and sags on the bottom. Oh, to be proportionate... If I end up with even bigger arms after all this, I'm gonna scream.

I'm not in the mood to concentrate on anything. So I guess I shall hit the hay after a couple of quick e-mails.

On to Wednesday!

I am really enjoying the shred. It is a good workout. Those V things are still kicking my butt. I have had a BAD month with food so I haven't lost any weight, but I am toner in some areas.

Krista, I'm convinced that shredding makes you eat more. Makes sense because it raises your metabolism. Back in March I did it, but I ate a ton more, I think I lost a pound or 2 by the end.

This time I'm really trying to watch my intake, but it's so hard. I am weak.

Those V things suck. What weights are you using? I'm using 5 lbs, and I think I need to go down to 2 lbs for that move.

I really do think it raises your metabolism, I have been so hungry. I have been using 5lbs, b/c I only have 5 and 10lbs. If I had 3 or 2 I would use it for the V things.
