The end of Shredtober

Well, I did it.  The 30 day shred every day in October, including one for luck yesterday!

shredtober before and after

So, these are my before and after photos.  I don’t know if the difference is noticeable to anyone else, but I can see it and I’m satisfied.  I haven’t lost any weight, but that makes sense because I have clearly gained muscle bulk, which is weird because I’m not used to seeing it.  My arms look the most different I think.  But I have lost an inch off my waist and an inch of my hips so I’m happy with that.  Happy enough to continue shredding, so I have managed to fit it in again today.  I’m planning to carry on through November but I’m going to have weekends off this time.  Thanks to Lisa for starting me off and the whole #shredtober group for keeping me going – you are all amazing!




I blame that Hollybobbs lass, she started it.  A couple of nights ago, I was lying in bed idly scrolling through my twitter timeline, when I saw her tweet asking if anyone wanted to join her in doing the 30 Day Shred in October.  I have the DVD, I haven’t used it in ages and I’ve never done 30 consecutive days, so I said I’d have a go.  As did about 70 other people, so it’s a bit hard to back out now.

A couple of years ago I lost 3 and a half stone, but recently a little bit has crept back on (well, 11lbs to be precise) and the size 10 jeans are feeling a bit snug.  I can’t afford to buy any more, so I need to lose a few pounds quickly.  I’m hoping the shred will help – we’ll see.


This is my before photograph.  I’m okay with my shape though it’s a bit lumpy!  But I wouldn’t be okay with being any bigger, so this is about reversing the trend.
