If you know me then you probably know that I’ve been doing the 30-Day Shred. And last night I finished Day 15. I feel so good knowing that I can do it. I’m very comfortable with Level One though I’ve done Level 2 as well (only once to see if I could. Yes, I can.)
Jillian says to move on when I’m ready. And while I could definitely move on at this point, I prefer to stick with Level 1 for a bit longer. I’m in this for the duration so I think I’ll complete thirty days on Level 1, thirty days on Level 2 and thirty days on Level 3. I’ll probably even take a break for a few days between each level because my muscles definitely need the rest.
I’m shredding in addition to my regular gym and cardio routine. So while I may be tired, I’m also impressed with myself.
Commitment is important, but follow through is even more important because without it, we will never reach our goals. I’m proud to be half way through the push-ups and the crunches and the static lunges with a bicep curl. But I’m also proud every time I make a goal and stick to it.
Every health related goal I make takes me a little closer to my ultimate goal. And that goal is still lurking somewhere in my future, I am excited to be “one day closer to being shredded.”
