So how am I finding this workout plan this far down the line?
At times this week I've wanted to kill Jillian Michaels I am so tired and achey and feel I can't give anymore. Then I complete a workout and feel great and can feel areas toning up and I worship her!
The last couple of days I will admit I've found tough. My muscles are just so tight, doing exercise continuously for this long really does push you and I am feeling very stiff and tired as a result. Some days I go to the DVD and my achilles, shoulders and abs are so tight I think I'm never going to do it.
However the American trainer is right once you train your body and push it to adapt you feel better and you feel stronger about lots of things you can achieve.
It goes to show you can do workouts when you're still feeling the pain from the day before. And being 20-25 minutes in duration you finish just when you do feel like you're about to pass out!
So this morning I had a major lie in.I have been feeling very tired this week. I did my workout DVD and boy was it tough. You know you're feeling it when the warm up is killing you!
However before doing it I needed a push and realising it was day 20 and I could measure some results I jumped on the scales and took out my tape measure.
You can see the results for yourself in the picture below. What better motivation than that?!
Now though I'm at the next stage, well the final stage. The last 10 days. Tomorrow I need to move on to level three. I'm scared.
Scared how tough this is going to be and can I do it. Also scared how jumpy it is as my neighbours (who we know like to moan about my jumping about!) are going to react...
It's just ten days though and if I can get even more results by final day it'll all be worth it.
Yes I ache it but I'm healthier and fitter for it overall. I've been better this week on my diet, I've had no alcohol and eaten healthy every day.
I wasn't too bad last week but did have some alcohol on both Saturday and Sunday and ate out Saturday night (I did try to pick healthier options though) and had a picnic on Sunday (although that was pretty healthy).
Let's hope this hard work and commitment continues to pay off. I need all the strength and motivation I can get to make it through level three!
