I'm starting Level 2 on my personal 30 day shred challenge. Week One was a success. Last Sunday I pre-planned all of my meals for the entire week and spent every night with the 30 day shred work out dvd. Yesterday, I weighed in 5 pounds lighter, whoo-hoo! I am amazed to say the least. I was hoping for 8 pounds lost over the entire month (2 lb/week), but I'll certainly take a 5 lb jump start. I'm going to keep pushing through these workouts and I went grocery shopping for the week last night. Wish me luck on Level 2 because Level 1 was an ordeal!
I found my daily calorie intake using this.
