Today was Day 8 of my 30 Day Shred challenge. Although I can't tell you if I've lost weight or not (I hate weighing myself), I can tell you that I have gained a LOT of ab and arm muscles. My arm muscles are looking great! I actually have shoulder muscles now - who knew? I've also now moved on to Level 2 - which is much, much harder than Level 1. Mostly because everything in Level 2 is plank based - and planks are hard! I usually take multiple breaks while doing this level. I need to work my way up to being able to complete it all the way through without stopping, much like I did with Level 1. Over the weekend I have been doing both Level 1 and Level 2 back to back since I have more free time than I do during the week. I'm feeling great!
