I did it! Shred Level 2!

Ha! I conquered my fears and tackled Level 2 of the 30 day Shred! Actually that was 2 days ago and now I am going to do it again this morning but I thought I better post just in case my internet conks out :-)

It went pretty well - was hard but not as bad as I though it would be. I did modify some of the moves so I think I will try to do this level at least a few times until I am familiar with the routine. It is always hard the first time because you are trying to figure out what they are doing and it is easy to get behind. With the v-raise and squat, I didn't even hold any weights in my hands and my arms were still burning by the end! Yikes! And then by the 3rd circuit I was so tired of the plank position that i just did butt kicks for that part of the cardio, and did bicycle crunches instead of whatever insane move they were doing for the abs! Ha ha!

But boy, I was sore yesterday! Just exercising a new set of muscles really reminds you of how many muscles God put in our body! I think it's great to mix it up a little every once in a while because it would be pretty much impossible to exercise all the muscles all the time!

Anyway, I conquered my fears! Now I just have to get back to it this morning!

way to go! I modify too with her stuff! I always am amazed at how hard it is...but again, I do like the level 2 and 3 more than 1.

Good job! Isn't it encouraging to be able to push through and accomplish something new? Keep up the good work.

Yeah!!!!! Good girl! I got up to do level one today and we were out of water. We've had horrible water issues the past two months. That one makes me sweat so badly I have to shower afterwards so I spared everyone this morning and opted out. I am hoping I can do one tomorrow, but it's 8pm here and there still is no water coming out of the taps. :(

Proud of you!!!! :)

Thanks for the encouragement, ladies! Sarah, I know what it's like to be out of water! I'm sorry you're dealing with that! I hope that you get some water soon so you can exercise again!

Awesome job! I dislike level two. Lol! Keep at it though and it will pay off.

I've done the shred 3 times now. It seems like it would be easier each time around, but it kills me every time. Keep up the good work!
