Level 2 of Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred … is DONE! Woohoo! I’d have to say, and I probably sound crazy, but I’m ready and looking forward to level 3. I know it is going to kick my behind, but I’m so bored with level 2.
Some days you just feel like this:
I found myself losing a lot of motivation and I may have “phoned in” as Jillian would say a few of the workouts during level 2, but I ended strong.
I started off absolutely hating all the plank exercise. I mean really? I my arms wanted to fall off, and then put jumping into it, ha – forget it. I ended up having to do the modified versions for a while but I ended with the full on moves and they were the least of my worries! The chair squats w/ v-flies is pretty much what I hated by the end of this level. My legs hurt half way through the exercise, the rest of my body is ok.
But, complaining aside, I’m very proud of myself for getting this far and the fact that I’m going to continue going! This is more than I think I’ve ever done with a workout/exercise routine outside of sports teams growing up, so for me, this is big! I am already thinking of what I’m going to do once the 30 days are over. I think I will move on to another workout dvd. I need something with a little more variety, or at least a few other options and I don’t think I will end up doing it every single day. I think I would like to have the weekends off, those nights are the hardest to get done to me. Does anyone have any suggestions for good dvds?
As far as results thus far: I am noticing the biggest difference in my legs but I am seeing more definition in my arms and a little bit thinner in the tummy area, but just barely. My jeans are getting a little looser, so I can’t complain about that! I haven’t done all my re-measurements yet, I want to, but I figured I would wait until the end of day 30 to do so. I did weigh myself and I’m down 4-5 pounds. yay!
I’m thinking of adding Shakeology into my routine. If you use it, and have any tips or great recipes to share, let me know!
So, 21 days down, 9 more to go! Here we go, Level 3 — BRING IT ON!
