Level 3, day 1.
Oh, ouch. Probably should not have started level 3 right after mowing the lawn. Well, I figured I was already sweaty and gross; might as well get it done. I did it. I still can't do some of those plyo moves. They are ju... Read more
Level 2, day 8.
I spent the last couple of days at the bottom end of my calorie range. And I've been chugging monster amounts of water, particularly in the evenings. The bloating seems to be abating. Two ... Read more
Okay, Level 2, day 7.
I'm past the halfway point. It is starting to feel like five pound weights are not enough when I'm doing rows and curls, but still too much when I'm doing raises. Maybe when I get to day 30, I'll get myself some 8 lb... Read more
Level 2, day 6.
Everything's going up instead of down. That's PMS and weekend cheating for ya. Absolutely craving salt and sugar and fat...and giving in. I did not behave all weekend. And ... Read more
Day 15 L2D5
Halfway point. Day 15, level 2, Day 5.
Waist 30 ('bout time!)
Haven't gone near the scale all weekend
I've been bad. We had pizza last night. It was yummy. But I am feeling the after-effects of junk food this morning. I really m... Read more
Day 14 L2D4
Almost halfway...Level 2 Day 4.
Today I did one mile of Leslie first and then the Shred. Now I'm like jelly. But I cheated a bit last night. I had a couple of handfuls of tortilla chips, and sent myself over my calorie limit. Actually, ... Read more
Day 13 L2D3
Level 2, day 3. I was actually looking forward to it today. As the school year nears the end, my seniors are starting to get anxious. They are getting difficult to handle. Today was our life skills trip. They had to come up with a menu, sho... Read more
Day 12 L2D2
This time I actually got through all the exercises. My muscles aren't complaining quite so much today. However, I was a bit concerned about what my heart rate monitor was telling me. Yesterday, I got up to about 80% max, panting a bit. To... Read more
Day 11 L2D1
Level 2, Day one
Weight: 143 (up two pounds from the digestive issues)
I am sore. I just finished and I can hardly hold my hands up to type. Plank jacks...I had to stop two seconds early. V-raises: well, it was sad, even with changi... Read more
I'm about to do the last day of Level 1.
I didn't weigh myself this morning. I'll add that to tomorrow's info. Still way tired and tummy issues...

Okay, one more day to go until Level 2. The days are getting rougher and rougher, and it's getting harder to muster up the energy to exercise when I get home. My stomach is still bothering me. I skimped on doing the crunches today; I just did... Read more
It's those darned early-dismissal days that get me. The kids leave at 11, and we get an hour for lunch before meetings start at noon. I have been trying to bring my lunch and avoid everyone, since the usual policy is that everyone goes out to ... Read more
Level 1, day six.
My endurance is building back up, I think. My heart rate and calories burned have been going steadily lower at the end of each workout. My stats are a bit skewed for the last couple of days, though. I'm having those dig... Read more
Day 4 of Level 1 of the 30 Day Shred:
Weight: 141 (woo hoo!!)
It's not getting much easier yet. I'm panting by the end, and afterwards I can't lift anything bigger than a pencil. But I lost two pounds since Sa... Read more

One more time...
Okay, 30 DS, day one:
Starting weight: 143
5 pound hand weights
It's those darned shoulder exercises. I can do curls forever; the chest press and overhead press are no problem. The raises are what get me. I ... Read more
