If you have been following me on Instagram or reading my blog you will know that I have been attempting Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. In my last post, I wrote about my thoughts on level 1 which you can find here, and also learn about what type of exercise this is and how it works.
As you can see from this beautiful graphic I created I basically smashed it and managed to do 10-days in a row (round of applause for me). However, this was disgustingly tough, such a huge step-up from level 1 and I found it extremely hard. Many of the moves are a lot more advanced and a whole lot of planking is involved- I just wasn’t ready for it to be so tough. I actually found it so hard I threw up after it once…
I just don’t think I was mentally prepared for it to be so much harder, but I DID IT! If you are attempting it, be prepared for it to be much harder than before, but keep doing it!
Level 2 Results:
As I have mentioned before, I am trying to lose weight and I’m doing Dry January, and I am doing this by simply counting calories along with doing a daily workout. So, by the end of level 2, I have now lost a total of 9-pounds! This has kind of annoyed me, as I randomly put on 2-pounds in the week for no reason at all, but oh well!
As of Wednesday 24th January I have started level 3, and as I am writing this I have only completed 1-day, and it very different from the other levels! However, I will update you when I have finished it (if I finish it), as well as some ‘before and after’ pictures once I have finished level 3!
