1) order Jillian Michaels "30 Day Shred" DONE
2) receive Jillian Michaels "30 Day Shred" DONE
3) join Jillian "30 Day Shred" SparkTeam DONE
4) take cellophane off Jillian Michaels "30 Day Shred" DONE
5) use the damned Jillian Michaels "30 Day Shred" DONE!!!!
There ...I have a plan and I will implement AND follow through with the ENTIRE plan tomorrow.
So I took the cellophane wrapper off and previewed 30 Day Shred. I am ready to do it!
After my pitiful pity party today I took a 4 mile walk after work and that felt so good. I didn't run but that was not my intent in the first place. Tomorrow morning...Jillian Michaels will be in charge and get my day started. Bring it on!
WOW!!!! OMG!!!! I am all rubbery and sweaty and wondering what the he!! just hit me!!!! So as I was previewing this DVD form Hell last night, I thought...jeez louise this is a piece of cake...and went to bed after laying all of my workout stuff out. I did not make it through the first set of jumping jacks and thought I was going to DIE!. Mind you, I have been running and burning tons of calories from just that alone. Then I got to thinking as I was dying on the workout mat that now I see why everyone has a love-hate relationship with Ms. Shred...devil woman.
Now that I have lived to tell the tale I am saying like those two old geezers on the Muppets...I SURRENDER I SURRENDER! I was a little taken aback though when my Polar read just 200 calories burned as I was exppecting a little more than that. Perhaps I need to kick it up a knotch for more calorie burning. If I do that I had better let the ambulance crew know that I am shredding as a heads up.
Seriously, folks...this is tough stuff and do NOT think for a moment that this DVD is a piece of cake like I did. I am not really complaining though as I feel GOOD and I can put the party favors away from yesterday's pity party (that was pathetic). I am in control of me again and THAT is the best feeling in the world. DO NOT ever take this feeling for granted because if you are anything like me (God help you) things can change in an instant. This is afterall, a continuing journey and the path is chock full of twists and turns. I MUST be prepared with a plan to get over, through and around each hurdle along the way. SparkPeople is a great teacher and for that I am sincerely grateful.
