I feel like celebrating – because it’s Friday AND because today was the last morning workout of 30 Day Shred Level 2. While I know that Monday I may be posting an image of tears – as I previewed Level 3 yesterday and it looks killer – I’m happy to be done with Level 2.
Some thoughts on Level 2: Level 2 is definitely a step up from Level 1. While I don’t know if I’d say it gets “easier” as you go through it, you do at least get accustomed to it. For a while, I was dreading all the planking, but the last couple of days, I knew I could power through it because it only lasts 30 seconds at a time…except those plank twists at the end, when sweat is dripping on to my yoga mat like I’m doing Bikram yoga. Okay, maybe not quite that bad.
Yesterday’s food: unexpectedly went out to lunch with a friend and didn’t make the best decision (chicken and rice smothered in teriyaki sauce) – so I at least tried to control how much of it I ate. Last night, we had Slower Cooker Thai Chicken and Vegetables, which was fabulous. I probably would have sopped up all the extra sauce with rice, but I felt I had already had my share of rice for the day during lunch. Used 2 Weekly Points (33 remaining).
This weekend, a few friends and I are going out of town for a ladies’ weekend. This could be dangerous for the diet, but at least one of the friends is also doing the Dietbet, so we can try to watch it together.
