Jillian Michaels, you sly devil you.

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

Today was day 5 of Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. {Had to reluctantly skip yesterday as I didn't get home until very late}. I remember my first day of doing the DVD sneering when Jillian yelled during another vomit-inducingly-painful round of cardio that "You people on Day 5, 6 or 7 are probably noticing a difference in your endurance by now" I was thinking OH SHUT UP YOU BEAUTIFULLY SCULPTED WOMAN I HATE RIGHT NOW! lol. Honestly that is REALLY edited from what I was thinking and actually screaming out loud at the television (because she could totalllly hear me...)

Well, today was Day 5 and I really do notice a difference. I only stopped once and it was the same part thats always been hell for me. 30 seconds of jumping jacks (after already doing a set for warm up right before), 30 seconds jump rope, 30 seconds jumping jacks to 30 seconds jump rope. That is the one part that always just makes me want to lay down and cry... BUT I stopped once and was able to trek through the rest of the DVD with no problem.

I was sweating like a pig (why do we say this? did you know pigs dont actually sweat? they are incapable of sweating... weird..) which is funny because no other exercise has ever made me sweat. With Jillian I am drenched by the end. I've come to view my shower as a reward. With living in Florida in summer, a shower is certainly a reward indeed.

I am going to stick with level one for 3 or 4 more days and then skip ahead to level 2. I don't know if I am really ready for level 2 but I'm dying to try it out, and its supposed to be a lot harder, so worst case I lose more weight right? :)

Anyway, Jillian... I started off hating you and I have grown to respect your methods, painful as they may be. Thank you for being one crazy bitch.

    She is sly!! (and lots of other words that I won't say lol)

    I'm on day 12. I got to really love level 1, then the first day of level 2 absolutely floored me, but I tried it again today and even though it was crazy hard it was a great workout that I managed to do.

    Don't give up!! (and enjoy those well deserved showers emoticon
