Shred - Day 9

First off, I must apologize to all those fellow shredders that I scared yesterday.  HAHAHAAA  Embrace your fear!

Second .... I did level 2 again last night and it actually wasn't nearly as bad.  Maybe because I knew what to expect.  I dunno.  It's still a major kick ass workout and there are some moves where I have to take a moments break, or put down the weights for the last few reps.    But overall I think I love it!  At the end I'm a big sweaty mess and I literally want to collapse after I'm done.  But that's a great workout ... right????

Last night my son had his first soccer game of the season (they tied a team that's playing a level above them - wooohooo - this is a good start since the last two years they lost nearly every game).  We arrived a bit early and then while they were warming up I ran the track and up and down a bazillion sets of stairs.  45 minutes of high intensity interval cardio - LOVE IT!

I'm feeling very strong today.  At the end of level 2 she does these plank twists that really target your obliques and pretty much all the ab muscles.  I can feel those working and it feels good.

Yesterday I was dealt some pretty scary news, but I'm feeling really optimistic about it.  I just have that feeling that things aren't going to be that bad ... a positive vibe.  Let's hope I'm right!

So tomorrow morning will be the next weigh-in, measurements & pictures.  Keeping my fingers crossed for all of us!

what ever it is my thoughts are with you, I can't give you advice because I don't know the situation at hand but my thoughts are with you my friend.
I posted everything today because I actually took all my measurments on the night of the 31st for the 1st so I took yesterdays for today. Either way I am happy with my results and ready to move on to level two!
So glad to hear you are feeling stronger,the first go round when I did the shred it got me in shape to start running, it's a great DVD and although tough it's got many benefits!
Stay strong my friend

Along with everyone else - prayers are with you as you deal with the news...I hope that it's not nearly as bad as you think it might be!

I did the Shred Level 2 tonight as well - definitely a hard workout, but I htink it was also because I wasn't sure what to expect. My quads are DEFINITELY feeling it right now (1.5 hours later)....have a feeling they're going to feel it tomorow as well!

I hope weigh-in and measurements go well for you!
