Hi Katie, I noticed your post on the Jillian Michael's group about the weights and wanted to let you know that filling water bottles with sand and water works really great! I'm on day 5 of the 30 Day Shred and just picked some sand up from the beach yesterday (its also hard to find weights here in Panama). For my water bottles, they came out to 3 lbs each, but if you use a bigger bottle the sky's the limit. Good luck with your veterinary studies, I almost majored in that as well. And good luck with the Shred as well, what a workout!
thanks katie!! i gained a lot of weight in college too and had to bust my tail to get it off. I wish someone had taught me how to workout at a younger age and wish i had realized what i was doing to my body. luckily i have a alot of great trainers here (including myself!!) and i love working out. i think thats one of the most important things for someone your age - just find a way to make it fun! and remember, even if you want to go drink, stick to non-sugary things and make sure you drink a ton of water before and get your workouts in regardless of how hungover you are!
