That's right, last Friday in my non-shopping trip to target where I found myself another new tanktop (Imagine this with blue and purple stripes on it, couldn't find the exact picture...but these tanktops are my fave. Just long enough and such cute patterns and colors.)...I found myself Jillian Michael's 30day shred.
-I just did level 1. It took the 20minutes it told me it would and I liked how it was broken up. For those of you who haven't gotten Shred, it's 3minutes of strength, 2minutes cardio, 1minute abs, repeat. So the strength, I think I may have the weakest arms ever. She had me do squats while raising 3lb weights up to my eyes...my shoulders were killing me. And, since when are jumping jacks a warm up? I think those should have counted towards my cardio. Pretty sure I heard her say for motivation, "We don't stop once we've crossed the finish line!". And I said aloud to my tv, "Um, ... yes, yes I do. That's why it's a finish line".
-I like the workout, now if I stick with it, I'll be comparing my progress to my running buddy Tiffany's progress with P90X. That's right, Tiffany, it's on! Jillian vs P90X. I believe in Jillian. Let's do this!
-For those of you who have worked out with this dvd before, when did you move onto levels 2 and 3? Did you mix it up right away? Do you all think I can skip the days I work 12hrs, cause I'm gonna be tired, or do you think this is a program you're supposed to do 30days straight?
Off to get the fixings for company pot roast from Ina Garten I saw last week. Mmmm.
