Chloe Ting – 2018 Summer Shred Challenge.

Day 27.

Today is not a happy day. Not because of the workout. But just because my results are not quite what I was looking for. Four weeks, four weeks and nothing physically has changed. I can do a press up great, but that wasn’t the goal. The goal was to at least lose some form of weight, but according to the scales I have lost nothing. And I have taken progress photos and I don’t look any different at all… I know I shouldn’t feel this way but I am going to say it. Today was disappointing. I am not blaming the workouts because, she makes me sweat, she makes me ache, and yes as I said earlier I can now press up. But as everyone should know weight loss is apparently eighty percent food. Which is where I think my main downfall is. So diet is changing. Slimming world meals for dinner. Yikes.

Warm up.

I still hate the jumping jacks.

Arms & Upper Body.

This still made my shoulders burn but I was able to do it easier than last time. Still makes me sweat, but I am showing improvements in capability.

Extra Arms & Abs.

Oh this was still evil. My arms were shaking and up and down planks were not my friend. Then to end the video with a minute plank when I have an abs video following this? That was just mean. I was a shaky mess when it finished.

Abs.

Oh god, fifty seconds for each exercise my abs did not thank me for this. My fitness mat also started to look a little bit like someone had imprinted an x-ray of a body onto it. When really it was just an imprint of my sweaty body. And the imprint was sweat. Very slippery sweat. This also decided it wanted to end on a plank of some description. Afterwards I was done with planks. Ha.

Cool down.

The workouts shattered me, and because my focus was on just keeping up with the timings, and pushing my body through the workouts. But this video, gave me time to think and I got really low. I was suddenly angry that in order for my body to lose weight, I will have to start eating food I don’t enjoy. I got angry at my body and discovered that I don’t like it very much. Especially not today. I do feel good after the workouts typically but today to not see any results is disheartening right now.

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