Ouch. That Jillian? She kicked my butt! LOL!
Just finished Day 1 of Level 1 of the 30 Day Shred. I'm not dead! Yay! But man, I feel like falling over and going to sleep. It was definitely a very challenging workout for me. I can already see modifications I'm going to need to make.
-Knee issues and wrist issues had me doing push-ups as wall push-ups for now.
-Jumping jacks, I could do a few sets but then knees started bothering me so I would either jog in place or do something else that kept my heart rate up.
-The floor work though, is really, really rough on my back. I just have a yoga mat and I'm on a hardwood floor, so I think I might need to invest in one of the thicker exercise floor mats I have seen.
-I also have to have a pillow under my head because if I lie completely flat, it triggers my vertigo.
I hate my body's limitations that are out of my control. But, I will learn to adapt, and I'm still putting in as much as I possibly can physically. I can do this!
After the video was done (boy, did it go quickly), I ate some lunch, then went to the gym for some added cardio. I've read that if I want to keep losing weight while doing 30DS, I'll need to add in extra cardio at least some days of the week. So I'll try it and see what happens!
I joined a SP group called 30 Day Shredders Holiday Style. It's a group of us dedicated to completing the 30 days. Some people started early, but today was the official start day. I'm hoping to find some added support there.
Unlike when I did the SP Spring Bootcamp, I probably won't be posting blog entries every day for this; just when there's something interesting to report, so I don't bore people to tears.
