Still Doing the 30 Day Shred!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Thursday, July 11, 2013

My workout for this month is the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. I heard about this workout over a year ago, and at that time I just dismissed it from my mind. I never considered the possibility that I would ever be able to do a workout like that! But I am now, and I really am doing it! Today was day 11 of the workout, and its my first day on level two.

Level one kicked my buttinski so bad, but I'm proud to say that I just stuck with it. I modified the moves when I needed to, but I never stopped moving my body. And day by day, I felt my stamina and strength slowly increasing. The workout was still super hard, but I could definitely feel myself getting better.

This morning I worked out on level two, and I thought I was going to collapse a couple of times! This workout is no joke! Again, I had to modify some of the moves, but I just kept going. When I was done, I was soooo sweaty! I sweated so much that my hair got frizzy, lol. Here's a picture of me after the workout;

Yeah, I look a mess! Oh well..if you still look good after your workout, then you didn't work hard enough, right?

Have a great day, Sparkfriends! I hope you all had an intense and intensely satisfying workout today!

    Level 2! After just 11 days! So quick to make progress, it's wonderful. Congratulations! Thanks for posting your progress, it is these month long challenges that really motivate me. I see other people doing them and making progress, and their accounts make me work harder at what I am doing, and think, maybe one day I could do that too.

I'm so proud of you, and you've really encouraged me!!! Yes, you're absolutely correct, if we don't sweat and look frazzled from working out, then we aren't working hard enough!!! I haven't tried any of my DVDs yet, as I'm still trying to get my sea legs. Miss Mary and I are walking every morning and today, we did .735 miles in 14:48 minutes. I figured it out and that's 3.0 mph. WOW was I surprised and pleased as punch!!! I do think, by the grace of God, that it won't be long, before I attempt to do my first DVD. I'm really looking forward to it!!!

Be blessed,

- Nancy Jean -
