Trading Wine for Weights...the Results!

During my Pinterest Challenge I challenged myself to trade my nightly glass of wine for weights with Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred.  Check out my original post here.

Today marks the end of 30 days and I am very thankful that I am done.  I have decided that a 30 day commitment is really hard for me...around 20 days I lose interest and have to push myself to keep going.  By week 2 of the Shred I realized that in order to make myself do the Shred every day I was going to have to do it in the morning before work.  So I got my butt out of bed most days at 5:15 am and got it done and over with (I am not a morning person so this was BIG for me).  In addition to the Shred, I also ran some days with my hubby or some of the girls at work.

So...I will quit rambling and show you guys the results:

I am pretty happy with my loss this month...come on check out those abs :)

And here are the measurements:

Before and (After) Measurements:
Weight - 152 pounds (148 pounds)
Waist - 31" (30")
Hip - 39.75" (38.5")
Left Thigh - 23.75" (23")
Right Thigh - 23.5" (23")
Chest - 35.25" (34")
Left Arm - 11" (10.5")
Right Arm - 11.5" (11")

That's 4 pounds and 5.75 inches!

I am so proud that I am in the 140's!  I actually really liked Jillian's workouts and will keep doing them as my strength training.  I was sore a lot of days but I loved the fact that I could get my workout done in less than 30 minutes with some definite results.  

I'm still not at my goal weight...I'd like to be between 140 and 145 but I am on my way.  Hope this is some motivation for others out there doing it...keep it going ladies!
