Move over Shredtober her comes Plankvember

Last month saw me joining in with Shredtober. This meant doing the 30 day shred by Jillian Michaels every day throughout the month of October.

I didn't really lose any weight but there were slight changes in my body shape and my clothes definitely fit better.

The best thing about doing the exercise was the energised feeling I was left with, I really did feel better for doing it!!!

So this month I have decided to join in with Plankvember. Simple enough to do and takes next to no time out of my day. Just have a look at my pin on Pinterest. The idea is that you get in the plank position and hold it for a certain amount of time. Day one sees you starting at just 20 seconds, it doesn't seem like a lot but if you find it easy then you are advised to do it 2 or 3 times in a day rather than just the once.

Here is my body at the beginning of November :

The last day of the November, you are expected to hold yourself in plank position for five long minutes, I am up for challenge, fingers crossed I see some more changes.!!

As well as joining in with Plankvember, I am also going to continue with other exercise. I have decided to have a go at another Jillian Michaels workout, Ripped in 30. I completed the first day of that yesterday, it was tough so I am hoping I see results this month.

Wish me luck :)
