Day 12 w/Jillian Michaels

"I want you to feel like you're going to die!" - Jillian Michaels

This is what we heard today, halfway through our time on the Jillian Michaels' 30Day Shred Interval 2. It's the same workout as yesterday, so I know she said it then, but apparently I was so distracted learning the new moves that I didn't hear her. BUT today... I heard those words LOUD AND CLEAR! And the reality is, I wanted to... die that is... burn burn burn.

We continue to do the 30 Day Shred without weights... I can only imagine the pain I would be in if I had weights during this whole time. Maybe our plan will be to repeat the 30 day WITH weights after we get through the first 30 days... not a bad idea. We'll see if that happens. But for now, without weights works just fine for me! I'm still getting something out of it - totally.

So a following has begun... now that I'm 12 business days into this workout with my man, I have convinced a few coworkers to join me on the journey. So far I've seen 2 videos pop up in the office since I began this workout. One is being used at home by a coworker and his wife... he's on day 2 and I think he's cursed me underneath his breath. Maybe. And the other video is going to be used at work - three ladies say they'll do it during their lunch break on Mon, Wed, and Fridays... they start tomorrow.

Have I become and advocate for this workout? Guess so, in some ways. I'm just glad that my man and I found something realistic that we could accomplish and do within our crazy scheduled lives. Bring on Day 13!

Congrats on your progress and success!! And way to go on carrying others along with you. :D

Man, I had a "feel like I'm gonna die" workout on Tuesday. Not sure what it was. Maybe it was a combination of warm weather--the dojo has been *very* cold lately--and a genuinely hard workout. Going back to my long day on Wednesday (kali and aikido in a row) was really painful but it worked out all the nasty soreness. Well. Most of it. Lol.

Wow, I feel bad for the gals at work. Shred will make you sweat. They aren't going to like being stinky and neither are you. :)

Oh man, I always curse her at that point in the workout.
I hate her the whole time I am doing it, but that thing works. I absolutely advocate for it.
