What can I say? A year later, I’m back to this tried and true gem. It was one of my favourite challenges back in the day, and while I am fully aware I have not finished her 2021 Get Fit Challenge, at this point I’m probably just going to say I’ve completed it to the best of my ability and call it a day. I wasn’t able to finish the final 3 days of workouts last week and I’d quite like to shed some fat rather than build more muscle now, so this is going to be it for me.
I know there’s a new 2021 Summer Shred Challenge but I really don’t think I’ll be able to handle it at my current fitness level. I’ve heard the new 2021 Weight Loss Challenge is pretty good and slightly more suited to lower levels of fitness and it’s only 21 days long, 30mins of workouts per day, but unfortunately I’m just not a fan of the music right now.
I love the music for the 2020 Summer Shred, it just gets me so pumped to workout and keep going, and I’m familiar with this challenge (somewhat), so I’ll go for this one for now. Plus it’s just nice to revisit old gems like the 2019 2 Week Shred Ab Workout video that still haunts my nightmares.
Finally, now that we have our own place and I can jump to my heart’s content, I can finally do the full challenge rather than constantly replacing videos and doing low impact to avoid jumping. I’ll also try to do the optional videos if possible, which is something I did not have the energy for last time around.
This is exciting! I wonder how I’ll get on… probably not very well, let’s be honest :p

Given that it’s getting to crunch time with our move, unsurprisingly, I’m a little behind with this challenge ^^;; But only a day or so behind. I have had to skip a couple of workout days so far, but that still means I’ve been working out 4x/week, which is impressive for me.
I didn’t want to skip 2 days’ worth of workouts last week so I ended up pushing my schedule back by one day, and finishing day 13 yesterday. This week is the final week and there is only 1 scheduled rest day. That’s probably not going to work for me given how busy I’ll be with moving, so this post will be updated for all the days that have workouts scheduled, as well as the days that I did them on.
I hope to be on schedule for the most part, but maybe with 1-2 extra active rest days – and this time, they will truly be active ‘rest’ days.

Last week I had such a great time with the first week of the challenge, but the weekend completely wiped me out. I didn’t have time or energy to actually do any working out in the end. We spent pretty much the entire weekend over at our new place just packing and unpacking, sorting out a lot of things that we need for the move, and that just completely tired me out.
We got a lot of stuff done though, so I’m really pleased with that. I might end up with a similar situation this week where I just simply won’t have time to exercise over the weekend but we will see. It’s July 4th weekend and we have plans, we need to get the house painted this week, and I think we have a friend coming over to help us move next week as well.
I’m looking forward to the moving process being over. It is stressful and tiring enough without being under a serious time crunch, so I am incredibly thankful that we have the luxury of moving in slowly. If that means that my workouts suffer for a couple of weeks, so be it. I don’t anticipate such issues arising for any future challenges after this!

It’s here! The challenge has launched. I watched the new 6 Pack Abs workout this morning and I must say it looks both exciting and enjoyable. I fully admit, perhaps I’ve gone a bit bonkers but it genuinely looks like a hoot. I don’t think I’ll be able to use weights for it because my core is weak, but I’m loving the look of the new exercises. The non-weighted alternatives already look challenging enough. I’m looking forward to improving my strength and getting back into exercising with this program.
As before, I don’t really want to take before/after photos for this program because 1) I shouldn’t expect a gigantic change over one program, especially not one that’s focused on strength training because muscle is not that easy to build, come on and 2) my room is in a constant state of dishevelled chaos and I genuinely don’t have the energy to keep shifting clutter around to get some good photos without the messy background.
In 3 weeks’ time we expect to be fully moved in to our new place, so to say life will be a little hectic is putting it, uh, very lightly. I’m already in a state of perpetual exhaustion from all the trips we’ve made to and fro with the packing and moving and painting and initial furnishing, which I’m already feeling somewhat overwhelmed by. There will likely be more days where I simply do not have the time to complete the workout but I’ll do my best.
I’ll be updating this post daily for week one’s workout schedule, so do check back on my progress if you’re interested and are following along too!

Well, well, well, what do we have here? Why, if it isn’t the lazy-as-all-things, hasn’t-worked-out-in-way-too-long Bob. I mean, I have exercised here and there, but it has been way too long since I’ve tried a challenge. I was sooo close to finishing week 2 of the Hourglass Challenge but this is the point where I admit defeat. I failed. Miserably. Which… is kind of disappointing given that the last challenge was only 3 weeks to begin with. What?
Then past two challenges she released were very HIIT-heavy and honestly I was disappointed that I wasn’t able to do them. But, living on the 3rd floor with sensitive downstairs neighbours with passive-aggressive tendencies, plus given how hectic life had been lately, I wasn’t really willing to stress myself out more by fighting that battle. We’re moving soon and I’m really looking forward to having no one bang on the ceiling downstairs when we’re only vacuuming.
The Get Fit Challenge is primarily weights-based, and so far I am digging the music. That intro tune gets me so pumped to exercise! Plus, one of my favourite full body workout videos is included in the lineup so I think it’s a sign for me to give it a go. The pre-release just launched today and is 5 days long, so this post will be dedicated to my attempt at the pre-release schedule.
The actual challenge officially begins on Monday 21st, and I’ll upload a new post for that week’s workout progress if I commit to the challenge.
