Because I’m only about three days out from Day 5 of Level 2 of the 30 Day Shred, I’ve decided to postpone weighing in until then. That way I have my half-way weigh-in. Which I’m very excited about. Except for certain hormonal factors that will be taking place right around then. Still, it should be fun.
I did cheat and check in this morning with my scale and tapes. I’m happy with where everything is so far this week. Especially considering I was really bad yesterday. I didn’t feel well in the morning so I skipped working out. Then I ate Whataburger for lunch and Panda Express for dinner. Plus last night was an insomnia night for me, so I was sleepless in SA. In spite of all of that, my weight didn’t go up. And I got right back on the exercise bandwagon this morning.
Day 2 of Level 2 was no easier than Day 1. I’m trying to remind myself that it won’t get better that quickly. I can do the squat thrusts in plank position and the plank-jacks. Albeit slowly. But, I used the bicycle crunches from Level 1 for my last abs circuit. By that point my shoulders are screaming so much in plank position that I can’t concentrate on doing the twists and making sure that I actually feel the muscles contracting and working.
I’m hoping to do another round of Level 1 tonight, and, maybe if I do, I’ll switch in the abs from Level 2’s 3rd circuit to make up for skipping them this morning. Check in with me tomorrow to see if I made it or not. It may be an or not seeing as we have donor visits today at work and my boss and I may be in need of a destressing dinner afterward. I promise to go for soup or salad if I eat out instead of working out!
