About a month ago I read this post by Melanie. After reading this post for some reason I felt compelled to buy "The 30 Day Shred" with Jillian Micheals. I bought it off Ebay and chose the slowest shipping possible to put off starting it. Then when I finally got it, I realized that Brad hooked up the DVD player wrong and there is no sound. Bummer! I still couldn't start! After begging and pleading with him to fix it because I was really looking forward to being in pain, I finally decided to just use the computer. Now, this DVD claims to help you lose 20lbs in 30 days. I am not looking to actually do this, since I would actually weigh the same as I did in high school and that might just look plain silly on an old lady like me. But I am looking forward to actually having a few muscles. So, yesterday I took the plunge and started. WOW! What a workout! If you want to work every muscle in your body, this is the workout for you! My arms and legs are in some pain today but not nearly as bad as I thought. The only problem, I have to do this again today! Now I've tried a lot of videos before and they usually have me jumping around everywhere and I'm confused as to what I'm supposed to be doing. Thankfully this is not one of them. It's a lot of basic things like push-ups, jumping jacks, crunches. It just really pushes you. I will let you know how it continues. If you notice me with arm muscles you'll know it's going good.
And on a side note, thanks to Beth Van Baren for taking the plunge and being my 3rd follower! One day I will work on finding out how to set it up so you can all recieve my posts by email, but this week I learned how to add links. I like to only learn one new thing at a time!
