Hi all, didn't do it yesterday (went to the cinema and ate ice cream instead ) but have just done level 2 again today. Feel as though it is getting easier and I am wanting to push myself a little harder on the cardio work, which I take to be a good sign. Might do a few more days of level 2 and then (gulp) try level 3!
As an aside, am not finding the previously mentioned pelvic floor problems to be such an issue any more, does that mean my core stability has improved?!
Scales still out of whack, so have no idea where I am w the weight. Am going to browse the other JM dvds now and ponder a purchase......! Ripped in 30.... just the name sounds off putting!
Had ANOTHER dream about a flat tummy last night, perhaps they are premonitions?!?!
Next fast day on Monday. Am feeling determined to turn things around a bit. Woohoo!
Ninja I am going to carry on at least until i go on hol at Easter. I've not had the best week for it either as didn't do it yesterday either but will do it today. And good news is my weight gain seems to have been pre period bloat as have gone back down now Feels a bit more worth it now!
Quite jealous Neither - I didn't finish work early enough to run with the group tonight and it's too wet, dark and possibly haily to go out by myslef now. Am condsidering the extreme shredded DVD - what do you think?
Well done Neither and Freakoid. Ninja - why don't you try it for us and report back? I decided to have a go at Ripped in 30 tonight. I thought on a toughness scale, it was somewhere between level 2 and 3 of shred, but more enjoyable. Did some extra abs and weights, too. I'm thinking of starting running when the weather improves, but I'm not that keen on muddy!
Yes, I agree about ripped - I enjoyed it more too, a bit more unusual. Which level did you do?
However, in unusual stakes extreme shed and shred has to be up there.
There's not the same 3, 2, 1 pattern - and it includes boxing moves and yoga as well as the other torture you're used to!
They're 45 minute workouts and you have the option of doing the 2 back to back - which as I managed to start at 10 I decided to do! I was flagging by the end. Not as intense as the others as they have the slower yoga type bits in between.
I only did level 1 ninja I feel I could go up to level 2 quickly though, so will probably do level 1 for 2-3 days, then move up. By the sounds of it, level 3 and 4 are when it gets hard interesting. Like the sound of extreme shed and shred, I was thinking that I would like a slightly longer workout for when I have a bit more time. I'll go and have a browse on amazon. Well done on doing two back to back! And so late at night. I don't like finishing after 10, never mind starting then, because I struggle to sleep if I exercise too late.
The only other one I have is 6 Week 6 Pack - and her Yoga Meltdown, which was only available in US format last time I checked. I don't like the yoga one, and find it even harder on my creaky knees than shredding.
Hi all.... have been a bit hopeless recently, ds had a birthday and party (12 x 6 year olds, finished me off for the day), then he was ill, but I'm back on board and fasting again today (groan...). But I think I have lost 2.5kg! Yay!
Wem, shingles sounds awful, poor you, hope you recover soon. Am so impressed with everyone moving on to ripped.... think I will order it too. Am still plodding along at level 2, but can see level 3 as a possibility on the horizon, so maybe next week? Could do with the variety tbh.....
Keep going everyone! I'm just going to keep at it, as it is nearly the only exercise I get, so no point in stopping..... my goal is to have a vaguely flat tummy with a bit of tone and more energy.
Well done on the loss orangina, I use old money and that's over a half stone you've lost. Brilliant. I would recommend RI30, it just seems more enjoyable than shred and I'm not saying that as someone who doesn't like shred, because I do.
