Anonymous said: How did the 30 day shred work for you? :)

I tried it awhile back, and while it definitely proved to be a good workout, I didn’t end up sticking with it. I found myself getting bored doing the same things, and I found it personally easier to workout at the gym instead of in my tiny room (my room is very small). I still do some of the exercises I learned from the video, just at the gym with dumbbells instead of doing the video in my room. But if there’s ever a day where I need an at-home workout, I will most likely do Level 1 or 2 of the video! Jillian sure knows how to make you sweat :)

Take a look at not just the quantity of what you’re eating, but also the QUALITY. That’s what’s important in a clean diet. And if you’re not already, change things up and really challenge yourself in your workouts. It’s not about how much time you spend working out, but what you’re doing. Are you getting your heart rate up? Are you trying new things? Are you lifting weights? Are you doing some cardio? Are you really pushing yourself past your comfort zone? TRY NEW THINGS. 

Also, take body measurements and use that as a way to measure progress. The scale is not the only measure of progress. You may be leaning out but staying at the same weight, so your inches and body fat percentage could be going down, despite the scale not budging.

By water fast, do you mean starving yourself and only drinking water? Because if so, I do not recommend that AT ALL and I do not recommend any exercise because your body cannot function properly when starved.

Anonymous said: I have a naturally really bad sway back and extremely short ankle chords? Should I just not do flat footed and straight backed exercises or is it okay to do them with an arched back and on your toes?

I honestly don’t know enough to help you, but I would suggest talking to either your doctor or a chiropractor who can help you assess what would be best for both strengthening your back and also preventing injury. I would never suggest doing weight training while standing on your toes, as that can be a balancing issue and cause hip/back/muscle strain. Here is a link to exercises that will help you strengthen your back, and I would also highly suggest taking up yoga, as it is the best exercise for strengthening/straightening one’s back and posture. I also found a video on correcting swayback posture, and there are a lot of suggested exercise videos for swayback.

Anonymous said: Hi, I saw others asking questions so I thought I would ask a small one, Whenever I run/power walk for about the first 5 minuets of my run/walk all the teeth on my bottoms jaw hurt like iv eaten something really cold or iv knocked my teeth on something, do you know what it might be?

There could be multiple reasons for this, so I would suggest seeing a dentist to get everything checked out! Could be sensitivity to cold if you’re running/walking out in cold weather. Especially if you’re breathing through your mouth, the cold air is hitting your teeth as it passes through. Could be stress-related jaw clenching, so pay attention to whether you’re tensing your jaw during your workout. Try to relax! Go see a dentist to make sure it’s not being caused by gum disease or a cavity or something.
