Updated Progress Photos!

Today was day 5 of the 30 Day Shred and things are going fine. I think by the time I'm done with day 10, I'll definitely be ready to move up to level 2. I might actually do that sooner rather than later. The only thing I still feel really challenged by is the push ups. :)

I want to go to Old Navy tomorrow so I can see if I can fit into a size 10 pair of jeans. I don't have any 10 jeans to try on, but I remembered that when I did my clothing post I couldn't zip and button a white pair of size 10 Anne Taylor pants. I was about 185 on October 13th, and I'm about 175 now!




ZIPPED! BUTTONED! SWEEEEEET!


So I'll be looking forward to getting out into the real world and seeing how a new pair of jeans might fit me. No doubt 10's would be tight, but I need to get some... when my clothes feel too baggy it makes me a little more complacent in my weight loss efforts. When my pants are a little tight it reminds me that I need to continue to watch what I eat and that exercise shouldn't be optional! :)


So here's an update on the size 8 jeans I want to be able to get back into! I decided to try them on again. I can't pull them up properly onto my butt because my thighs are still too big, and obviously they won't zip or button. But I'm all the closer. Gah! I can't wait! :)

And actually on my hips I'm down 8.5 inches from my original measurement of 48.5 inches.




Yeah! So nothing else really new to report. See you guys soon!

Good work Jenn. I feel the same way about holding a plank in yoga that you do about pushups. It's brutal. Our teacher will tell us hold this for 30 seconds...it feels like 5 minutes. Last year at this time I joined a friend taking yoga classes once a week. In September we stepped it up and joined a pilates classes and starting in January we will be taking another class called Pilates Gliding. So up to 3 classes a week and my 5 days of riding my exercise bike riding. Pretty good considering before that I was just sitting around trying how to figure how I used to do the things I did when the kids were young. Now it just seems I want to do more. It kind of shocks me. The shred sounds very interesting although I find my sticktoitness isn't as good as when I go to an actual class. I never drop out halfway through a class I go too but when I do a video I can easily quit early.
