I'm now 1/3 of the way through 30 Day Shred. I knew it was making a difference, because I could see a little change in the mirror, BUT the big reality check came today when I saw a picture of myself from the Cesarean Awareness Rally.
Here are some decided unflattering, but probably pretty accurate pictures of me from Rosie's birthday on March 27th:
And here is a picture from today (almost 2 weeks in, 10 days of Shredding):
Can't see my chest area or anything, but I was amazed that my hips looked that much trimmer in a white t-shirt (which isn't exactly the most flattering of garments).
And just 'cause I love this pic, immediately post workout yesterday:
Way less fat around my face, noticeable difference around my hips, and today I discovered that my obliques actually go all the way up to my rib cage. As in, I seriously had no idea that muscle went that far! It's always either been fat or flab there before.
I really wish I'd taken proper before/after pictures, but the real proof is going to be in that god-forsaken green satin dress. Planning on sticking w/ 30 Day Shred, because it isn't time consuming and it's definitely doing something for me!
