Jillian Michaels Body Revolution, Week 1 Day 1
Monday, April 30, 2012
I'm really hoping I can stick it out this time. I realized about a month ago that I really have no desire to run. As much as I wish I could, I just don't like it. At all. I don't have any fun while I'm doing it and kept giving up without making any progress. I tried the 30 Day Shred and realized that I like workouts like that much more. I found out about JM's Body Revolution about two weeks ago and ordered it almost immediately. I received it last Wednesday. After speaking to my husband about it, he decided he wanted to do it with me, and we decided to start today. I'm excited! Having him following the program with me will help us both succeed. :)
I'm doing the 7-day Kickstart, so I did the cardio workout this evening as well as Workout 1 this morning. Workout 1 was challenging, but good. I liked it a lot. Even when I felt like cursing Jillian out I was having fun with it. The cardio almost killed me! She kept saying the Suicides were the worst, but the Running Mans almost made me quit before finishing the first circuit. But I made it through! I'm still a bit amazed that I did it. My core is already hurting from the cardio workout. It sucks, but I know I desperately need it after three abdominal surgeries in 6 years.
Today was his birthday so I'm a little off on my eating because of the piece of cake. My husband was good, though, and decided he wanted an angel food cake with strawberries and Cool Whip instead of a cake with twice the calories. With the cake choice, I'm at around 1400 calories for the day.
