Almost two years ago exactly I started the 30 day shred and completed it. Nine years ago my son went to college and my role and how I defined myself and what I did with my time was gone. I needed a hobby and took up working out and working on me. Found out I was hypothyroid and between the meds, exercise and eating right the extra seventy pounds I had carried around began to fall off for good. It took me two years to lose all my weight and since then I have been pretty successful at maintaining. So I continued to workout but wanted more definition and tone. That's when I discovered Jillian.
From Septemper of 2010 to May of 2012 I worked out regularly rotating several Jillian dvd's and I was in the best shape I had been in for a very long time. Then I just stopped working out. I know, I know. I worked out religiously for 9 years and just stopped?!? And I lost all the tone and strength and stamina and energy and all of it. So disappointed at myself and so surprised that I became a mush pot all in two months after NINE YEARS!
But today I plugged Jillian in and she welcomed me with open arms and proceeded to kick my butt! I appreciated every minute. I huffed and puffed and groaned and now the muscle stiffness is setting in. Tomorrow will be a challenge getting out of bed to face her again. But I will do it. I will succeed.
