So, after all I've read, the DVD and the weights have arrived....

Later today I plan to begin.

In 30 days I will be toned, have lost this extra stone, feel awake instead of in need of a nap all the time ... etc etc etc.

Right now just getting through the first one would be a victory! Anyone else desperate and mad enough to be starting this....

L1D1 R2!

Realised its exactly 30 days till my holiday. So i'm on board again.

Failed at the first set of Natalie push ups. Maybe by day 5 grin

hairy do you have set days for fasting? Might join you.

How is c25k going tinwe?

Tinwe Wed 28-Aug-13 09:14:11

Well done Selma for completing and Hairy for keeping going! smile

HairyPotter Mon 26-Aug-13 22:37:59

I'm still doing it. I try to manage six days out of seven. My plan was to follow Natalie but that went out the window on the first set of push ups! grin

I finished L1D6 round 2 this afternoon. I still have around 2 stone to shift so I really need to keep at it.sad

smelmafingers Mon 26-Aug-13 21:38:15

Finished 30 Day Shred. But its taken me six weeks grin

I really want to do I it every day, but have had quite a mad month. Anyone else still shredding?

Tinwe Fri 23-Aug-13 22:01:36

Well done Hairy! Selma, have you finished too, now? smile

smelmafingers Mon 19-Aug-13 20:31:45

L3d8 done! May celebrate the final session with more a wine than is usual

Wow hairypotter thats quite an impressive loss!

I sort of have a target weight, but i'm not too fussed about it. Have a holiday in six weeks time so I want to feel okayish on the beach. that's a good short term goal.

I'm really enjoying the adrenalin rush after a shred session, but really struggling to do it every day - small children who aren't' great sleepers!

Think i may keep shredding a of 3 times a week and follow Natalie. Might get back to 5:2 as well. That'll sort me out!

HairyPotter Mon 19-Aug-13 13:43:22

Hello, yes I finished it yesterday! Woo hoo! I'm now shredded grin

I still have a long way to go, but doing this and the 5.2 diet means I have lost 9lbs and a dress size in just over 5 weeks. I'm going to go back and start again from the beginning, I'm shall attempt to follow Natalie for at least some of the workout shock

I have abandoned c25k for the time being but would quite like to give it another go sometime. I'm worried it makes my arthritic hip flare up again with all the pounding. Shred seems easier unbelievably

What are you doing next Smelma?

Tinwe Sun 18-Aug-13 22:05:51

Have you finished today then Hairy?

Tinwe Sun 18-Aug-13 22:05:24

Thanks Selma and well done to you for sticking it out! What're you going to go to celebrate? grin

smelmafingers Sun 18-Aug-13 11:07:59

Think its just hairypotter and myself. Maybe she's finished!

Just finished L3D7. The end is in sight. [Grin]

Good luck with C25K!

Tinwe Sun 18-Aug-13 10:00:46

Sorry, wrong thread, anyway, how are you all doing? I had to abandon Shred after 40 days (so I did complete the first 30 day cycle). All the lunges and squats were really hurting my knees. It was a great starting block for fitness though and I moved onto running the C25K which weirdly doesn't hurt my knees at all!

Good luck all you Shredders, you're doing a great job! smile

Tinwe Sun 18-Aug-13 09:58:01

Just realised, if we'd all started according to the thread title we'd just be ending week 2 now. Not quite sure how I ended up almost a week ahead! Anyway W3R3 completed, W4 starts on Wed for me.

HairyPotter Sat 17-Aug-13 22:07:30

Yes, plenty of sloshing here too grin although, mountain climb moves?? Have I missed something blush

L3D9 done! One more to go! and then I'll start all over again

smelmafingers Fri 16-Aug-13 20:36:09

Well, i had a cup of coffee before i worked out the other day. I could here it sloshing about during the mountain climb moves. Nice.

L3D6 done.

Think you get to day 10 over the weekend? smile

HairyPotter Thu 15-Aug-13 22:51:06

I think it's just me and you now Smelma grin

L3D8 done. I think I drank too much water beforehand, the supermans made me want to throw up!

smelmafingers Thu 15-Aug-13 19:06:09

Away to do L3d5 just now. Falling behind grin

HairyPotter Wed 14-Aug-13 22:45:59

L3D7 finished grin

HairyPotter Tue 13-Aug-13 22:25:51

Ouch! I can't imagine not wearing trainers, was it not awfully sore on your legs?

L6D6 done. I'm getting very close to actually finishing this thing grin

smelmafingers Mon 12-Aug-13 10:03:28

No. I'm still here grin

L3D4 done. Forgot to wear my trainers. Was slipping about all over the place!

HairyPotter Sun 11-Aug-13 21:47:52

I know I'm talking to myself in all probability, but L3D5 done! grin

HairyPotter Sat 10-Aug-13 22:41:25

L:D4 all finished. It wasn't easier either! grin

HairyPotter Fri 09-Aug-13 22:46:06

Oooh yes Smelma I forgot about that! L3D3 done so looking forward to tomorrow grin

smelmafingers Fri 09-Aug-13 21:54:53

L3D3 done. Pretty heavy going on the knees, for sure! Definitely cant follow Natalie for the jump moves.

D4 tomorrow. That's when it gets easier isn't it. [Hopefull]

HairyPotter Thu 08-Aug-13 21:00:04

Managed L3D2! Not with any great style, but never mind. God knows how stiff and sore ill be in the morning grin

smelmafingers Thu 08-Aug-13 15:24:14

Hi creepy will have a look for that workout on youtube. Need to have a plan in place for the end of 30 day shred shock

Just finished L3D2. 3rd attempt today as kids keep leaping on me now. Think i'll have to start working out in the evening. Not good.

Also, dont think my downstairs neighbour will like L3. Rockstar jumps make the house shake!
