So I've been working out pretty hard and been seriously counting calories.
I FINALLY learned portion control and how to mange what I eat. Thank you to SparkPeople.com!
I lost 30 pounds, but then Christmas happened.... It wasn't as bad as it could have been, but I still feel like I could have been more attentive to my meals and working out.
However, my friend did the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred and she looks fantastic! And she's kept up with it. And then my mom asked me about it, so I'm her guinea pig. And well... I'm trying it for myself.
Here's how it works. You do 10 days each level, and there are 3 levels.
The 20 minute workout felt like it was FOREVER! I thought I was going to die. My legs burned, my arms hurt, and all I wanted to do was lay down and die. But I stuck with it. I felt so good after the workout. It was brutal, but 100% worth it.
I woke up sore. My back was sore; my legs were sore. I didn't want to move. So I did a puzzle. However, when 9 PM rolled around I figured I should probably get off my butt and actually do something. The workout was so much better. However, I did put on South Park and watched that while I was working out. That probably helped distract me. Don't get me wrong, it was still hard.
I've got 8 more days with level 1. We'll see how it goes.
So far, I like it. It's a short, high intensity workout. And let's face it, everyone has at least 20 minutes to spare to do a quick workout. If you're interested here's the link to the video on youtube. www.youtube.com/watch?v=
