20 Push-ups!

Okay, who was surprised that I was never able to keep on with the 30-Day Shred?

Seriously? I have NEVER been able to finish that thing! I always start off with the best intentions and then am never able to go for more than a week at most. Something always comes along to mess it all up.

Anyway, it doesn’t really matter if I never finish it because anything is better than nothing. And I did make progress! I think my diet change may have contributed more to that than anything else, but I have proof that I’m stronger now as well so it’s not just the diet.

Here are my new stats:

  • Weight: 169.4 lbs (-4.6lb)
  • Arms: 11 1/8″ (L), 11 7/8″ (R) (-.5″)
  • Chest: 30″ (-.5″)
  • Waist: 32″ (-1″)
  • Below Belly Button: 39.5″ (-.5″)
  • Hips: 42″ (-1″)
  • Thighs: 23″ (L), 22.5″ (R) (-.5″)

Total inches lost: 4″

Now here’s my proof that I’m stronger!

  • finally able to do 20 full push-ups in one sitting
  • able to do 5 assisted chin-ups

Those chin-ups are with a chair but I’m not putting weight on my foot I swear! Or at least not much weight. And my nose isn’t touching the floor or anything with those push-ups but my elbows are bending a respectable degree.

Anyway, that’s leagues better than I was able to do before.


Do you have a fitness goal?


About Katie St. John-Shin

I believe in living life and not letting it pass you by. I mean, come on, if you really want to do something but don't have the courage to do it so you let the opportunity disappear, you may regret it for the rest of your life. How can you know what you're capable of unless you go for it? Like every writer, I naturally plan on becoming world-famous (not really). I love reading, writing, fitness, coffee, watching my favorite movies/shows, listening to music, and trying new things even if they're sometimes terrifying. I'm a writer, a group fitness instructor, a personal trainer, and a nutter for doing all of the above.

  1. I’m in the process of cutting my last 30 lbs and then will be doing a slow bulk of probably 15-20 lbs and then will cut down again. Hoping to be able to do some comps in the next few years.

  2. Oh and congrats on your progress! Keep it up!
