30 Day Shred Update | Day 5

I am so excited to tell you all about my first 5 days on the 30 day shred!!  

If you follow along with twitter or instagram you might have seen that I am undertaking the 30 Day Shred by Gillian Michaels. Gillian is the lady tasked with getting the contestants on the biggest loser in to shape.  I am off to Vegas in 3 weeks and want to have a rockin' bikini bod.

Day 1
I was pretty excited to get started.  I am not gonna lie it was a tough work out, but definitely do able. I didn't feel like I wanted to stop or coudn't carry on, perhaps because I was so motivated. I would say the hardest part were the push-ups... ouch!

Day 2
Feeling a little sore, especially under my arms. Still I am ploughing on, thinking of that bikini body!

Day 3
Today was a struggle, I really didn't want to work out at all. In fact I got pretty angry during the exercises, fortunately those punches came in handy! Feeling: sore.

Day 4
So tired today. Noticed I have been wanting to eat more, and had a few cheeky sweet snacks.  Telling myself it is ok because I am working out... hmmm not sure this is going to work, maybe I will put on weight instead of toning up!

Day 5
I had the 5th day off. Not because I actually wanted to but because I couldn't fit the work out in to my day.  Which is fine because you are suppose to have 1 or 2 days off per week. So my 5th workout was on day 6.  Gillian says it will get easier but honestly I was sweating the most so far today, could be because I am pushing myself more, but apart from being able to get through the first set of push ups a little better it is still tough.

I think the results I can see so far are incredible. I had no idea that working out just 20 minutes a day for 5 days could make such a huge difference.  Overall I am feeling great. So proud of myself for getting this far! 5 workouts done 25 more to go!!

What do you think of my results so far ladies? Have you tried the 30 day shred?
