Well, here they are...the SUPER DRAMATIC before and after photos. Ta da!
Ok, so I look pretty much exactly the same, but I do FEEL better! See how I stood further away from the camera in the "after" photos so as to appear smaller? Tricks. I forgot to be all gloomy and sad in the "before" and then put on make-up and smile in the "after", that always helps too.
As far as measurements go, I did lose about a half inch to an inch on my lower waist, which was a surprise. Most of all though, I am so glad that I did this 30-day challenge. Not only did it get me kick-started back into working out and eating healthy, but I made some new friends in the process! (barf, I know, but it's true)
Unfortunately I started having some lower back/hip pain the last few days that is progressively getting worse. I will be getting myself checked out and hopefully back in working order soon. I am seriously looking into that half marathon in October, I was in the best shape of my life after the half I ran two years ago and it would be an excellent motivation.
These next few weeks will be a test for me to see if I can still get some exercise and keep eating healthy through all the craziness. If you haven't read about our upcoming adventure, click here.
How did the rest of you shredders do? Did the word shredder make anyone else think of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles just now?
