February was one heck of a month here, one that included not much sleep and lots and lots of hard work. One reason: Feb 28 marked day 30 of my 30-day shred with Jillian Michaels DVD workout system. Soooooo....am I completely shredded? Do I hate Jillian Michaels? Am I going to stick with it? Not yet, sorta, and absolutely!
The workouts are 20-minutes long, 25 including warm up and cool down (which are both very short and to-the-point in true JM style). Before starting out I thought, how tough can a 20 minute workout be? Well, I'll go ahead and answer that one now: TOUGH. I've never felt like such a head-to-toe weakling. But she knows her stuff, and I progressed pretty quickly from level one to level two. Now, I can hardly believe it, but level two is getting easy. Level three, here I come (gulp).
She wants you to do the workout every day, and I managed to fit it in 5-6 days a week. It's almost addictive because I felt so great afterward. And it's really fun to actually feel yourself getting fitter and stronger day by day. I didn't lose as much weight as I wanted last month, but I think I gained muscle. It might actually be a 60-day shred program for me, before I get my desired results. Here's to the next 30 days! :)
