"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!
