Day Fifteen: Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

Although I have skipped a few days, I am not near the "20lbs" that this DVD cover says I could lose in the 30 days. I am thinking that maybe for the 300 lb person who is going from doing-nothing-couch-potatoe to the give-it-all-I-got 20 minutes-a-day workout that maybe they would lose the 20 lbs.

I am half way through the 30 Day challenge and I have only lost 3lbs. Maybe if I wouldn't have skipped workouts I would be down 7 or 8, but for sure not 10lbs!

15 more days to go... are you getting active yet???

Day Ten: Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

Today, to make up for missing yesterday, I did level one and then some extra cardio and strength training.

I worked through the DVD with Jillian and the girls and then I kicked out another 5 minutes of so of jumping jacks, butt kicks and crunches.

I'm sure since I rested yesterday I'll be a bit sore tomorrow, but...

P.S. To go with my new body changes, I got a new 'do' too!

Day Nine: Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

Shame on me. I ditched my workout tonight.

Mostly because I just couldn't find the motivation.... bad, I know! But hey, I'm human and if I can get myself to go from inactive to working out three or four times a week... then I'm happy!

Day Eight: Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

Today is might day eight of my 30 day challenge.
I am seeing a difference in the way my pants fit.

Though it isn't much I have lost 2 pounds this week. (I will begin posting my "Weekly Weigh-In" on Sundays. That way you can follow and cheer me along!)

Today I pushed myself through Level One and am getting more out of the exercises as I am feeling more comfortable with them!

My favorite is the bicycle crunch! We do it at the end of Level One when your body is shaking you are ready to quit!

Day Seven: Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

Today was a very bad food day for me... I fell off my nutrition wagon and had a burger, fries and shake. top it off.... for dinner my hubby decides he wants Papa John's Pizza. (What? I don't have to cook?!? Would I refuse?!  LOL!)

So, between the fast food and the pizza, I went over my WW points by 17 points for the day....Can you say OUCH!!

If you are any kind of familiar with Weight Watchers, you know that you have an extra 35 points per week. I try my hardest not to use them, but man, oh, man a hamburger sounded so good and you know what? I enjoyed every bite!

My workout was a bit hard to get though today. I was a little loaded down from all the oily fatty foods.

Back on schedule tomorrow... what else can I do!?!  I'm not going t beat myself up over it. I am still learning and soon my cravings won't get the best of me!

Day Six: Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!

My sides are killing me from last nights workout so today I decided that I had no choice but to let me body rest.

So... I'll be ready to hit the floor again tomorrow for some more crunches!

Day Five: Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

Day four and I am feeling great.

Today I did Level One.  I still had to stop a few times for a breather, but I was able to finish and my legs feel like jelly. The cardio part is the hardest for me next to the push-ups. I have no upper body strength, that is a major goal for me this year as I get in better shape.

Being 70 lbs overweight, I get out of breath going up the two flights of stairs in my house, so for me to push myself to do two minutes of cardio is a workout for me! I am proud of myself for being able to get through the 20 minute workout with a few short stops for a drink. Go me!

I'm going to stick with it. I am getting results with this DVD workout and I by watching what I eat and limiting my calories.

Great workout for those who are overweight, beginners and who want results in a short intense workout.
