30 Day Shred Level 2 Results

I finished level 2 of the 30 Day Shred a few days ago and thought I would update you on where I am.  This level got done in 2 weeks versus the month the first level did…so that was a plus!  Averaged doing it 4-5 times a week and at least once on the weekend.

Well here are my numbers from level 2.

Weight loss for Level 2…..down 2.6 lbs

Inches gained during Level 2…..1.75 inches

  • Waist/Upper Abdomen… down .25 inch
  • Lower Abdomen…up 1 inch
  • Hips….no change
  • Lower Hips/Hiney….up 1.5 inches

(Pictures will be updated in the Photos Page soon)

WTF!!!  yeah, I know that I feel like I have a little less jiggle, and that I did this in half the time that I did the first phase, but I really didn’t think I would gain inches!!!  URGH!

My thoughts on level 2.  I loved the oblique twists, leg lift crunch combo, plank jumps and stationary lunges.  I HATED the pendulum lunges and plank lunges!  I got a bad sunburn about half way thru the second half which made using my weights very painful rubbing against my sportsbra.  So I didn’t use them for much and maybe that is why I haven’t lost any inches.

I am proud of myself for finishing level 2 and I feel stronger than I did for level 1.  Every time I did Level 2 I felt more energized afterwards.  It seems like there was more ab work in the form of planks and less cardio than in Level 1, but I sweat like a pig every workout.  Every.Single.Workout.I.Sweat.Like.A.Pig!!!  That’s a good thing!

My hopes for level 3, which I started today is to finish it in less than 2 weeks again.  I hope I notice a difference in my belly bulge that doesn’t seem to have changed much during this level.    I also plan to try to use my weights for the whole thing, obviously I have proven to myself that weight training does melt inches!
