Flee to Allah…


Fear is like a candle whose flame helps a person see goodness from evil; and fear of God allows a person to turn away from evil. Those who fear mere creatures flee from them; but those who fear God flee to Him: “So flee unto Allah…” [Qur’an 51:Verse 50]

30 Day Shred: 6 days in

Salaam and hello!

So I managed to complete 6 days of Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred today, thank God!

As I mentioned in my previous post, my arm muscles were really sore, but by the end of day three, the pain was gone. The workout was easier today than the other days. It’s my rest day tomorrow, and I’m looking forward to getting back to the 30 day shred on Sunday, inshaAllah i’ll be stronger.

In terms of weight and measurements, I’ve put on a pound lol and measurements are the same. This could be due to water retention. I’m not gonna stress anyway, just gonna keep going…I’m the type of person who keeps hold of every ounce of fat until the last minute so I’m not expecting immediate results!

30 Day Shred: 2 days in

So I’ve done two days of Level 1 of 30 day shred. Right now I just feel sore, my thighs are aching and I’ve had to put some deep heat lotion on my arms cuz they hurt so much! Worked up a sweat.

However, I feel good and determined to carry on. Today is day 3. My plan is to do 6 days and take a rest on Saturday. I have read that Jillian advises to take plenty of rest days in between.

I believe I would have struggled much more, but before Ramadan and once after I followed workouts from Fitness Blender on YouTube, which helped to build my endurance I think. I need to follow a routine otherwise I give up, so hopefully 30 day shred is better for me for now.

Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

Trying to lose weight is not easy when you’ve had four children and your body is tired! Oh how I miss the metabolism of my younger days!

I’ve been logging my calories on My Fitness Pal for a while, which is really useful and helped with my weight loss. However I’ve been at a looong plateau, so thought I would have a go at Jillian Michaels 30 day shred to give things a bit of a boost. Starting today, using the videos on YouTube:

Will post my progress insha Allah!
