So now it's August and I am committing myself back to my blog because I truly miss sharing everything that has been happening. So, what have I been up to?
Well, I successfully completed Summer Shred 13 in June, then the Extreme Shred 13 and the TrulyCommitted Instagram Challenge in July and now I am participating in the Ultimate Shred 13 for August!
I feel amazing and unstoppable!
My June workouts look like this:
Participating in Summer Shred 13 really was a life changer for me. I mentioned previously that I had signed up for it when I realized I was spiraling deeper and deeper into a depression over my brother's passing. I did not like where I was heading and knew I had to do something, I just needed someone to tell me what to do and I'd do it.
After 30 days of total commitment to numerous sweat puddle inducing workouts, clean eating and tracking all my food (including measuring all food) in My Fitness Pal, the results were in:
The month of June showed me exactly what I needed to do to successfully continue with my health journey!
So, OF COURSE, I just had to sign up for NHerShoes Extreme Shred 13 for July! I wanted more food plans! I wanted more sweat puddle inducing, heartbeat raising workouts! Call me crazy, but I wanted it!
My July workouts looked like this:
At the end of July my results were:
The added bonus of July was participating in Truly Jess' "Truly Committed" Instagram Photo A Day Challenge! Oh my goodiness! This is what I needed. I drew SO much inspiration from Jess herself, but also from all the lovely ladies who participated! The love, support, inspiration, motivation that I received and drew from everyone was more than I ever imagined. So thankful I did this challenge and still have all these lovelies with me on my journey!
As part of the challenge we had to state our goals for the month of July:
So crazy me decided to sign up for the August Plank Challenge on Instagram to help assist me with my planking and building my endurance/stamina/strength. By the end of the month, I am suppose to be able to hold the plank for 5 minutes. We will see if that actually happens, but I am going to give it my all!
Just because I couldn't get enough of the shred workouts from the past 2 months, I decided to also sign up for Ultimate Shred 13. This is the 3rd installment of NHerShoes Summer Shred Series so of course I just had to continue on with all my lovelies from the previous 2 shreds.
So far my month has looked like this:
So talk to me,
1. What have you been doing to challenge yourself lately (physically, mentally, spiritually)?
2. Has anyone else backpacked through Europe? I have always wanted to and simply can not wait to begin this adventure!
