20/30-Day Shred

I've finished day 20 of the 30 day shred. Tomorrow I will start Level 3. Level 2 was kicking my ass - I do not have enough strength in my shoulders. Level 3 includes a lot of pylometric training and since I've traditionally had good lower body strength, it might be a little easier. We'll see tomorrow!

I also went back to the doctor for an update on my cholesterol. There are four factors that make up the advanced lipid test that I had and three of the four factors improved. The doc said she could tell I had been working on it. (Thank God because my weight hasn't changed even a freakin' ounce). Unfortunately my HDL (good cholesterol) actually got worse. She's giving me six more months to work on it. If it hasn't improved at that point, I'll have to go on another drug (I'm already on a statin). I'm going to start running again at least 3-4 days a week as soon as my 30 day shred is up. I'll continue to circuit train a few days a week, but also run and/or bike. By July I want to start training for another half marathon. I haven't figured out if I want to do one here in Indy in the fall, or if I want to find one in another city/state. I'm considering doing the Disney Princess one...

Hopefully this, along with the diet changes I've already made and will continue, will get me to where I need to be.
