Last year I did the 30 day shred to get back into shape after gaining some weight over the winter. I always gain weight over the winter as my arthritis gets worse and I'm less active. I'm also prone to frequent flare ups that make me hesitant to workout. Once the flare-ups happen, I'm always afraid of making it worse. the end result is a weight gain of anywhere from 10 - 15 lbs.
Today, is day one of the 30 Day shred (take 2). I did really well last year. 20 minute workouts are fairly easy to find the time for and I really saw a big difference in muscle tone after just a couple of months (with the results starting to show after the 30 days). This year I have a 20 lb goal (not to mention getting my bikini body back). If I lose the 20 lbs, I will officially be back to my pre-motherhood weight (I was pretty damn close last year). That would really make me happy!
I'm writing it here because making it public, makes it more of a commitment. I'm hoping by the time summer arrives, I'll be back to my old self .
