One Week of Shredtober Done!

Here I am day 8 of the Shredtober challenge. That is one week done and dusted and I have to say I am feeling better for it. I think exercising does tend to make me feel more awake and energised.

I have done the 30 day shred every day since the 1st of October and I have also been doing 50 squats and bicep curls a day too.

Diet wise I have mainly stuck to the same foods I normally eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner, keeps it simple and easier to stick to, the only change I've really made is less snacking on junk. I have a protein shake after working out and I drink green tea every day. I have been drinking the green tea for a couple of months now and I think it has helped with the weight loss so would recommend others trying it.

For me personally when I look in the mirror, I can't really see a significant change although when I tense my arms, there is definitely some muscle definition starting to appear.

I have had my tape measure out and I've stepped on the scales, the results :

Waist : 24.5 inches - half an inch lost
Hips : 34.75 inches - quarter of an inch lost
Weight : 7 stone 5lb - 1lb lost

Overall a small change from last weeks initial measurements. I'm actually surpsrised to see any loss after only a week so I am extremely impressed, this has given me a little boost to keep going. The ladies in the Shredtober group have also been a fantastic support!!

So have any of you taken up the challenge? How has it been going for you?
