30 Day Shred: Days 6-8

I’ve completed days 6, 7, and 8 of Jillian Michaels – 30 Day Shred and I have to say I am completely amazed at how much more endurance I have.  I seriously thought I was going to die on day 1.  Yesterday, I still pushed myself, but it was so much easier.

The pushups are still the hardest thing for me.  I have no upper body strength and even doing “girl” pushups is difficult.   I can make it through the first set without too much of an issue, but the 2nd set I can barely do 5.  Oh well…on the first day I could barely do 5 in the first set.  At least I’m making progress.

I’ve had my workout done by 8am every day this week, so I’m quite proud of myself.  With as crazy as my week has been, I know that if I hadn’t finished first thing in the morning, I probably wouldn’t have finished at all.

Tomorrow will be day 9 and I think I’m going to move to Level 2.  I’m pretty sure it will kick my butt, but I’m OK with that.

I’ve been eating horribly this whole week, so the only thing that’s probably kept me from gaining a zillion pounds is my workouts.   I need to get back on track with my eating, but I feel sooo unmotivated.  I know it’s the right thing to do and I know I’ll see huge results if I combine good eating with 30 Day Shred, but I just can’t convince myself to do it.  I keep saying “I’ll start tomorrow” and so far tomorrow hasn’t happened.

If any of you has tips for getting back on track with your eating, I’d love to hear them.
