Great job

Just finished todays workout 45 minutes of Turbo Sculpt and 20 minutes of Ab Jam

I took my photo today (for comparison and also because I am almost at the end of my 30 day Turbo Jam challenge) and WOW I can see such a difference especially in my midsection

That's AWESOME! I need to start just copying your diet plans every day, LOL...


I weighed in yesterday and sadly only lost 1lb, however I kinda was expecting that. I still haven't horribly altered my diet (besides no soda, and lots of water, and keeping track of calories) but I still haven't been eating right for the amount of weight I want to lose and I know that.

I'm thinking I hurt myself too somehow I looked up shin splints and think I may have one. I can hardly do a jumping jack without it hurting :\ So I'm taking today off from 30 day shred as much as I don't want to (I only got halfway thru yesterday too). I must have done something wrong. I'm thinking it was when I worked out in socks the other day, maybe. Usually I have my shoes on. So I just walked a bit today. Ugh, but I'm so bummed. Because I know it's going to be even harder to start after almost 2 days off.

With some kind of pulled muscle, or something, should you just work through it... or rest it? I'm not really even sure...

Oh, don't bother looking at my diary from the last 3 days, it's weird LOL I was doing a type of fasting and only ended up at 1000 calories minus the 200 calories burned from working out (so 800 net calories on Saturday and Sunday). And my macros are pretty out there. That said, I'd pretty happy if I had lost 1 lb! Every loss counts in my book xD

But keeping my calories low definitely helps. I've realized that a part of the reason why I wasn't losing weight was because I had my measurements wrong. I was underestimating the calories from butter, almond butter, oils, mayonnaise, etc. that I was consuming and must have easily gone hundreds of calories over my goal. So now I'm just keeping at 1000 - 12000 net calories (preferably 1000 calories, because I feel iffy about eating back the calories burned).

Sorry to hear about your injury That sounds awful. I don't know anything, but I wouldn't personally try to work through it. Hope you're feeling better soon!

Yesterday was a full-body workout day, and I feel it today. Bad. I can't bend down without my quads and hams and glutes burning. My shoulders are sore, as well as my abs. Which is good, meaning I worked them well. No pain, no gain.

Here is a post from earlier in this thread on the subject of sore muscles.

However a PULLED muscle is different. If you've actually pulled the muscle as opposed to "my muscles are sore," it's damaged and requires rest to heal.

If you actually have shin splints, the best thing you can do is wait for the inflammation to go down. Working out through shin splints can make them worse and lead to more serious injury (hello stress fractures.) I kept running through shin splints during my first half marathon and it was a few months of no running at all post-half before my legs got back to normal.

For the shin splints, I've heard that its good to make a V with your hand, and rub it down along the top of the leg, and press down pretty hard. A shin splint is the muscle pulling away from the bone, and if you rub it down it will help it reattach. Don't quote me on this, but I've heard a lot of people say it.

I just hurt something in the groin region, and it HURTS! Makes playing first base and hitting a bit hard, so I'm gonna be resting it up when I'm not playing softball. So I'll probably be doing lots of arm workouts
