Day #5....

I wonder when I'll stop counting in days!

It's Saturday morning and I am done the Shred for today. I can't believe that I got up on a Saturday morning to work out. Anyone who knows me on long or short acquaintance will consider this a minor miracle. I'm surprised at myself, though pleasantly.

I completed level one completely, and 80% of it I didn't do the modified exercises! There's a few parts I still have to drag my butt through, but I can't believe the difference in my endurance from 5 days ago. I'm hoping to see some changes in my body soon too! I know, it's been less than a week...patience and hard work is the key.

I think I said at the beginning that I'm not doing this to get skinny, but to get healthier. I think my habits are getting better, my energy level is up.... I'm starving all the time, but I'm doing my best to make good choices. I'm not willing to give up every treat, instead I'll be living a life of happy moderation. ;)


  1. Don't be disappointed if you don't see (physical) changes right away. I didn't see them until the second week in.

    I'm the same way with the workouts. Wake up, get it done, move on. I know that if I were to save it for doing in the evening it would be one excuses after another...either for not doing it, or for eating crap. I know myself -- I'd say "I'm going to work out, I'll have a quarter pounder meal...and sure, let's super-size it becuase I"m working out".

    Yet -- when I work out in the morning -- it's more like "I'm NOT going to eat that, becuase I got up at the crack of dawn and worked my ass off!!"

    Good going!

  2. I'm so tired in the evening, not sure if I could do it then!

    Can't wait for my jeans to be a little looser though!
