don't poke fun.

 first of all.  posting these photos is something WAY out of my comfort zone...i don't tend to be a vain person but I am SO proud and pleased with the results of the shred thus far.  i'm on day 15 today so i thought i would share a progress photo.  i don't have a before photo so you will have to take my word that everything i point out is new/bigger/smaller/better.  okay? everything i have pointed out in the photo above was either not there or VERY squishy.
and maybe you think my results aren't impressive...that's ok too.  i'm in love with them. :)
areas of improvement:
thinner waist
thinner thighs with more muscle/less jiggle
i can see stomach muscles trying to peek through!
way less muffin top!!
very nice toning in my arms and upper body.
i have more energy and feel WAY better (who knew that was true?)
i haven't lost any weight but like i said...i don't have much to lose BUT i can tell that my mushy, squishy parts ARE being swapped out for lean and tone parts and that is ok by me. 
i am doing this with a partner who has lost 22lbs to date doing this. 
i have not changed my diet too much but since starting this 
i WANT to eat better and snack less and eat better things. 
so there it is.  my most vulnerable post to date. :) i am so happy to hear from those of you doing this with me.  i am ENCOURAGED by you all NOT to quit even though i WANT to each and every day.
Pin It!

You look FANTASTIC! UUGH! I NEED to get back to shredding. I did it for a short time and quit for some lame excuses...Time to get back at it, your pictures are an inspiration...I need less squishy!! :P

Pink Fairy Vicky said...

Looking Amazing! I am off to google shredding!

E said...

Wow, you look awesome! Way to go! I bought the shred dvds about a year ago... But, I never completed 30 (or even 10 consecutive days for that matter) before I got pregnant. I will definitely use this as a "baby weight buster" when the time comes. Keep it up!

I did day 1 this morning! I didn't think I was gonna be able to get off the toilet a few minutes ago! haha! My legs are killing me! But I love a work out that makes me feel like I have accomplished something besides wasting time :)

Nancy said...

Way to go. That is awesome and you look fantastic. I bet you feel amazing too; especially to see all of that hard work pay off. Keep it up. You are a mean, lean, Shredding machine! :)

Pam said...

LOOK AT THOSE ARMS!!!!!

You go girl! I don't think these pics are vain at all. It's inspiring to see your progress since I am a week behind you. Day 8 for me!!!

This has helped me get through a dreary March and look forward to spring & summer.

I hope you post another progress pic in a week or two!

Jennifer said...

Girl, you are awesome! I did day 8 today and am noticing changes too. At day 4 a miracle occurred and the pain suddenly subsided considerably. It's still a very intense workout, but bearable now. :-) I think even my backside is picking up a little. Have you changed to level 2?

Thanks for sharing your success so far. Very motivating to stick with it!

Stacia said...

You do look awesome! What level are you doing now?

thetwistedruffle said...

i got sick again and had to quit for a bunch of days! but, i did do a tae bo workout today. (i teach an aerobics class at homeschool co-op and am in the same boat as you; no weight to really lose, but lots of squish!) you go girl! and we practically look like twins today, jeans and a grey tank!

happyfind said...

WHOA, Crystal!!! You look awesome!!! I gotta get my butt in gear!

gevayandmatt said...

My hubby and I are on day 2! Ouch! I'll let you know how we do! Thanks for being vulnerable and encouraging!

angela said...

Awsome!!!! My Power90 arms are shaping up, too. And I think my trunk is more perky and less mushy. No mom butt for us!

Jars of Giggles said...

You look awesome!! I am on day 6 you have inspired me! I have a long way to go but gotta start somewhere!

Millicent said...

alright girl! i have this DVD and did it one time, then loaned it to a friend. i now WANT IT BACK. look at all that hotness! :)

Gabriela said...

You look great! I need to dust off my DVD and get to it.

sarah said...

hmmmm. maybe i need to start!you look great. would you tell me what you like about the program. i know nothing about it and time is an issue for fitting things into my daily life. how do you work it into your schedule?

Jacomijn said...

That looks great !!! And so good of you to keep at it !!! (Here I would have liked to add a smiley with thumbs up, but I don't know how to do that :o)
Well, you sure made me think about ordering the DVD. Maybe I will !!

Tara said...

I love this workout! I'm on level one day 3. What level are you on? When do you switch? You look great!

Parrotts said...

Wow! You look awesome! This is just what I need to keep going...your arms alone are mega-motivators! I'm sure you already know, but muscle weighs more than fat but is more compact, which is why you're losing inches but not actual weight. Thanks for posting this! :)

Cherish @ My Cup of Tea said...

WOW. You go girl! What are you doing that is making you look so great??

MCH PHOTOGRAPHY said...

Whoa mama you look awesome!

Stephanie said...

After I saw this post, I had my hubby go out (at 11pm!) to buy the DVD and I did my first workout at 1am that night. I just completed Day 3. I'm sure you remember, Day 3 is the one where you wake up feeling like you were beaten with a hammer and can barely sit on the toilet or brush your hair. But it means progress! I'm so excited to start seeing results. You have totally inspired me! I hope you share more results pics in the near future :-)

You have encouraged me. I went and got the DVD tonight. I plan to get up and do it in the mornings before work. I already get an hour to workout during work, so I am going to add this on top of that hour. I have already lost 56 pounds, and I hope this gives me the push to lose even more.

You look great :)

Ashley said...
