The table is pulled out of the way. The jingly music is playing. Jillian is grinning at me and waiting to introduce me to her "two best girls helping us out". But I cannot bring myself to press play.
I did so well last week, a full week of shredding and watching what I eat. This week, Mr Motivation has left the building. I've already hada a square of chocolate.

excellent, wallpaper grin

i know it's far too early to see results (D3) but i feel better already - same time tomorrow?

wallpaperaddict Sat 03-Aug-13 17:26:15

Yep ripping I'll be back tomorrow! Maybe francis will be back with her motivation too-she did say Sunday! Looks like we are the only two doing it at the moment, the thread has gone very quiet!

FrancesDeLaTourCoughngIntoABin Sat 03-Aug-13 17:35:29

Yes I will be back tomorrow morning. Feeling quite motivated by it, theres nothing beats day 5 of the exercise and diet, I feel so healthy, slim and brilliant. Unfortunately thats usuallly when I allow mysekf a day off sad

FrancesDeLaTourCoughngIntoABin Sat 03-Aug-13 17:36:35

Sorry that wasnt very clear, obviously to gwet to day 5 I have to suffer days 1 to 4 first!

wallpaperaddict Sat 03-Aug-13 18:02:32

See you in the morning francis! I'm hoping day 4 is going to be easier, I found it hard today as I'm so sore. I just keep thinking by the end of the month I'll be a whole new me! Well that's the plan anyway.

RippingYarns Sat 03-Aug-13 18:06:21

yay! Frances, see you tomorrow grin

you have to, you have my current favourite MN NN

<whispers> i actually bought some proper gym leggings today shock

wallpaperaddict Sat 03-Aug-13 19:32:17

ripping you are a pro now with the proper gym leggings! I've been doing it in my pjs blush

RippingYarns Sat 03-Aug-13 19:56:14

i have to <ahem> gym up

even wearing a too small bra and with a very tight sports bra on top, i still struggle to do butt kicks or jump rope without having to hold on blush

FrancesDeLaTourCoughngIntoABin Sat 03-Aug-13 19:59:29

I use yesterdays bra and top
Slattern

Can I join? Did Day 1 today using You Tube. I didn't have any weights though so used two bottles of wine grin

RippingYarns Sat 03-Aug-13 21:15:51

bloody hell shock

2 full bottles shock

you'd be better with dog food cans or beans wink

seriously though, you have to be careful if your weights are liquid filled, something to do with equilibrium and static weight and what if you drop it, what a waste grin

FrancesDeLaTourCoughngIntoABin Sat 03-Aug-13 21:21:44

<boasts>
I use DH's weights
<confesses>
with all the weights taken off, so I actually just use the bars and that is hard enough

bionic77 Sat 03-Aug-13 21:23:44

I realised halfway through it was a bit ambitious! I'll stick to baked beans tomorrow.

wallpaperaddict Sat 03-Aug-13 22:10:26

Haha! I didn't have any weights so I was using bottles of water! Bought weights today so will use them tomorrow. wink

wallpaperaddict Sun 04-Aug-13 09:21:51

Back for day 4! Just having a caffeine hit then I'll be shredding! Not so achey today. Who's joining me?!

RippingYarns Sun 04-Aug-13 09:36:57

All done!

That was a lot easier than I remember - go for it wallpaper

wallpaperaddict Sun 04-Aug-13 10:17:44

All done! That is definately getting easier! ripping what day are you on?

RippingYarns Sun 04-Aug-13 10:28:01

L1d4, wallpaper - same as you?

FrancesDeLaTourCoughngIntoABin Sun 04-Aug-13 10:33:06

Done
I wish the push ups weren't at the start though, they are the hardest by far. it would be nice to get to them knowing you are nearly done

wallpaperaddict Sun 04-Aug-13 10:37:42

Yep ripping, same as me! It's getting easier isn't it?! I might sneak a peak at level 2 and see what's coming. Or maybe I'm best to be blissfully ignorant! Can you see any difference in yourself yet?!

Francis-I like the push ups! I get fed up with jumping jacks by the end though!

RippingYarns Sun 04-Aug-13 10:41:22

I think they are before lots of star jumps so you release your muscles during the swinging.

But good to see you stuck to your word, Frances

I'll probably be a bit later tomorrow, got to get DD up and ready by 9.30

RippingYarns Sun 04-Aug-13 10:47:11

I don't think I look different yet, I've got a long way to go being so fat, but I feel great!

I'm in a different mindset this time around. Before I was looking forwards to days when I could make an excuse not to do it, now I'm trying to plan days so I can :-O

wallpaperaddict Sun 04-Aug-13 10:51:51

Good on you ripping! I think having a determined mindset does help heaps!

FrancesDeLaTourCoughngIntoABin Sun 04-Aug-13 11:02:01

l3 is easier than l2 in my opinion

Definitely agree about the mindset. I'm also calorie counting on MFP and there's no point doing it half heartedly. If I do I get to mid afternoon and cram as much chocolate in as I can. Whereas if I'm fully engaged with it, I do really well. Problem is I don't know how to get that! ame with the shred, plus the shred in the morning gives me extra motivation to not say "screw the diet"

FrancesDeLaTourCoughngIntoABin Sun 04-Aug-13 11:03:43

Actually I do. I need to fight the cravings for 2 or 3 days - have 2 or 3 really good days. After that I start to see results and have lost that "what's the point" feeling. But getting those 2 or 3 days out of the way is so difficult,esp when up to the day before I have been eating what I like, when I like (and that tends to involve a lot of chocolate)
