Chloe Ting – 2018 Summer Shred Challenge

Day 5

When I said yesterday that I was showing signs of improvement… I take it all back! After today I was clearly mistaken. Though thankfully, I wasn’t actually sore just a little tight. I don’t know if my lack of soreness means anything like maybe I am not working hard enough? But I am a little relieved that I am not sore because I think tomorrow I am going to be. Honestly… I am sore right now.

Warm up

As usual, a warm up is done. I will always do a warm up before the main workout but I don’t think this quite prepared me for what was coming.

Goodbye shoulders it was good while it lasted.

Yeah, this involved weights. I didn’t have to use weights, but I have decided that I am going to push myself while following Chloe Ting’s workouts. This basically means that any options that don’t necessarily need weights, fitness bands, or optional videos… I will commit. Due to this decision my shoulders officially hate me and are no longer shoulders. They are aching stubs with dead vines dangling from them. I hurt right from the first exercise. By the end of the video I was shaky. My shoulders were so sore. Sweat was dripping down the side of my face. Oh wow. It doesn’t help that following this video was this.

Arms? Upper body? What are these body parts?

My arms were aching before I got to this video. During this video my arms protested every lift of the way. Press ups were the devil, and another set of up and down planks were one of the devil’s evil agents. However, I will say, once again less breaks and pauses to when I first did this video. So, that is some form of improvement physically. The only thing is now my shoulders are so sore I am not sure they are going to work the way I want them to today.

Cool Down

By the time I got to the cool down my arms just didn’t want to do anything. They wanted to dangle by my sides and just not function anymore. Anything as simple as what I am doing now like typing made them so achingly tired. The stretches are still not satisfying but I am hoping if I lose weight it will shrink my body and make certain positions easier to access. Fingers crossed!

I know I have limited my posts to the Chloe Ting daily reports. But don’t worry, I will be bringing the books back. I have been reading just I have hit a disappointing and infuriating part that is giving me a hard time to get through. Plus I have new things coming that I am trying out. I am going to bring it all back and this blog will be full of lots of things… Hopefully!

Thank you so much for reading. Write again soon! Bye!
