I didn't realize that even though we were in between challenges we were still weighing in over at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans! Thankfully I got on the scales this morning any way.
End of challenge weight: 132.0
This week: 130.8*
*Okay if I'm honest I don't remember if it was 0.8 or 0.6, but I'll go with the higher number to be on the save side. I was just so excited to be so close to the 120s!!
I started level 2 of the shred yesterday and it was much harder than level 1. Maybe because I took two days off after my big hike. Maybe because it was 82 degrees in my house**. Or maybe its just harder (duh - I did go up a level after all). Although I wasn't sore again today, I did have problems with some of the moves.
**Jay & I are the cheapest people on the planet. We're pushing ourselves as far as we can go before turning on the a/c. Our electric bill has thanked us - last month was only $28 and this month was $37.
I don't think I'm doing that plank/ab move right though, because it felt easy peasy. I'm not vain enough to think that it was easy because I'm that good, so I must be off on form or something.
Just a weird self perception thing: as I was doing the plank moves, I got so disgusted with my body. I hated looking down at my fat, orange peel legs. HOWEVER after the workout was over, I took off my t-shirt because it was drenched in sweat and caught a glimpse of myself in just my sports bra and shorts. I thought I was pretty hot! :) Hot enough that I walked around that way till Jay got home.
How crazy is it that I went from one extreme to another in less than 30 minutes?
