BR phase 2 week 5 workout 6 done. Guess what? My husband's colleague lent me her copy woo hoo.

Saying hi to mark my place!

Well done Yadah!

Hello everyone. Just marking place for later...

Hello! 30DSL3D6 done.

Was supposed to complete the shred in a July but obviously didn't make it. 4 days left.

Lots of people have told me how I look like I've lost weight but I'm not back in a single item of pre-pregnancy clothing which just tells me how bad I'd got!

I suppose it took me 2 years to get to this size, I ain't going to fix it in a month!

OublietteBravo Fri 01-Aug-14 17:42:12

I'm going to try and shred later - have to do some packing first though (DC are going on holiday tomorrow).

Just place marking. Haven't shred all week, not in a good head space. Am hoping to get back on track later today or tomorrow though.

Hi all! The challenge is on Spots, nearly wimped out on day 1 though! 30DSL2D7 done today, why is it not getting any easier?!

Glad you found another copy Yadah, I didn't realise what BR actually was until yesterday while browsing Amazon! I've been eyeing up Buns & Thighs, does anyone know what it's like?

Hope you feel better soon Shadows thanks

Fuckalella Fri 01-Aug-14 19:40:29

Just realised how that sounds! Only Jillian's buns & thighs obvs. (Even that sounds wrong blush)

Spotsondots Fri 01-Aug-14 20:08:47

Fuckalella - your post has actually prevented me from wimping out. Thank you! I was sooo close to jot doing shred tonight becaus I am lazy . BUT I am going to do it now...

Go Spots! grin

Spotsondots Fri 01-Aug-14 20:48:02

DONE! Finding it a lot more challenging than L1 but this is only D2. Glad I got off my lazy behind and did it. Thanks again Fuckalella! grin

Yay to falling off the pony and getting back on the pony. Shadows we will wait for you until you are ready to kick ass again. Hang in there, whatever it is.

Marking place for return from holiday! Back properly on Tuesday.

Body Revolution phase 2 week 5 (which i am going to repeat btw because of recent exhaustion-related flakiness) cardio 2 eek. That was a bit of a shock. Kept up tho smile

George9978 Sat 02-Aug-14 16:27:45

I'm in please, i'm just about to do day three of level one, just been for a run ( desperate to tone the wobble before my hols.)

Bimblepops Sat 02-Aug-14 23:49:06

30DSL3D3 done.

Difficult to find opportunities to do it at the moment, other than late at night. Another 10pm start to shred this evening...

Struggling to get a rhythm going with L3, keep having to pause and rewind the DVD. The actual moves are okay, even the dreaded squat and rock star jumps, it's just the moving between them that I'm finding difficult. I guess it'll get easier the more I do it.

OublietteBravo Sun 03-Aug-14 09:54:30

Hmmmm - well I finally managed to do my first August shred today - 30DS L3D5.

Still not enjoying level 3 at all, which is not helping me motivate myself. Without this thread I think I might already have given up.

Going to pop into town and get someobe else to make my coffee as a reward for getting my arse out of bed and shredding (DC are away this week, so I could've had a lie-in).

OublietteBravo Sun 03-Aug-14 10:33:13

On the plus side - I just happily walked into town wearing skin-tight Lycra kit, so I'm obviously feeling pretty positive about my current body shape.

Fuckalella Sun 03-Aug-14 19:25:01

30DSL2D8 done today. Sorry Spots, I've let the side down already! Yesterday was bad - had a happy meal for lunch, fish & chips for dinner and no exercise to speak of blush

Back on the wagon today though!

You're doing great Oubliette, keep it up! Going out in skin tight Lycra is still a long time away for me grin

Spotsondots Sun 03-Aug-14 20:48:21

I might have had a minor slip up today with a very grumpy overtired baby and a slight hangover after a wedding yesterday. So we have had one day off each. Didn't shred yesterday but did go for a run so am counting that as my exercise... Back to the shred with a vengeance tomorrow!

Bimblepops Sun 03-Aug-14 22:47:11

30DSL3D4 done. And before 10pm!

Getting slightly smoother...

yadahyadah Mon 04-Aug-14 09:25:53

Body Revolution week 5 (again) phase 2 workout 5. ow-ow-ow. I really really felt it today. Still, onwards and upwards, all.

OublietteBravo Mon 04-Aug-14 18:19:47

30DS L3D6. Finally feel like I'm getting the hang of this level. Hoping to complete the shred this week.
