|Just about to start day 10...|
But it's kicking my tail!
As of yesterday, I've completed 10 days of Jillian Michael's Shred! I'm proud of myself for sticking with it, and overall I'm feeling great.
On day 8, I moved on to Level 2. Not because Level 1 had gotten easy (although it had become more bearable), but because I was just wanting to make things more interesting. I think I've gotten more than I bargained for, because Level 2 has made me sore all over again.
A Few More Discoveries:
- My mornings are more structured now that I am determined to fit in a workout.
- I have to be really careful with Squishy underfoot. I'm sad to say that he has crawled right into a jumping jack and gotten clobbered more than once. :(
- Working out creates more dirty laundry! Hm. More dirty laundry vs. being more healthy. I guess healthy wins.
- I'm contemplating what to do after I'm done with the 30 days. I'm thinking about trying to run a 5k, something I've never done!
I don't have any "in progress" workout pictures for you all, because I haven't figured out how to use the timer on my camera. Lame, I know. Also, I have no idea if I've lost any weight, because I don't own a scale! I'm really not concerned about the numbers per se--my goal is to fit back into my pre-baby clothes. Or at least get close.
Company girls, please excuse the stacks of paper on my computer table. Rachel Anne, I need a small thing intervention! That stack never goes away! It seems to re-create itself every 5 minutes.
Again, thanks to Crystal, Jen, and all the others who are doing the Shred right now. All the encouragement helps me keep going.
P.S. If you've ever run a 5k before, how did you train for it?
