Have you been following my 30 Day Shred journey? I have completed Days 19 & 20 and look forward to moving on to Level 3 tomorrow. I only have 10 days left, I still can’t believe it! This workout video has been a lot of fun but I’m not sure that I will do it again. Just not sure…I’ll probably incorporate some of it into my weekly workouts but I got bored quickly doing the same thing over and over. Anyway here are the stats for the past two days.
Got up really early today to do the workout before we began our busy day. Kev had mentioned doing it when we got back home but I just knew I would be way too tired to do it so I pushed myself to make it happen before we left. I was up and shredding at 7 AM on a Sunday OH MY! Hey gotta get used to getting up early on Sunday again because we start back to spinning/cycling class this weekend.
The workout was pretty good and sweaty as usual.

Today didn’t turn out as sweaty as the other days. I am exhausted from a busy weekend and really didn’t feel like doing the workout this morning BUT I did it anyway. I love the military press and leg extension move. My arms burn and it feels great. And if you haven’t figured it out already I absolutely love the plank jacks. I don’t do the modified version on this. Jillian says that resistance and cardio together makes it so effective. Burn baby burn!
Haven’t been able to do the double jump ropes and even the regular kind of bother my knees, the constant jumping up and down (It’s not the workout that gives me knee issues, I have had knee issues for a while so I have to modify. Just wanted to clarify that it’s not the workout). Sometimes I modify and do leg kicks or knee lifts instead. As for the last set of ab work in circuit 3, I haven’t been able to accomplish that one yet. The plank twists are difficult and I just can’t twist my legs/knees under by body to the opposite side. One day!

So there you have it, an overview of my last two days on Level 2.
Have a great week,
P.S. You can purchase the 30 Day Shred workout video at Amazon for under $7. I think it’s totally worth it to at least try it once. Like I said above, I’ll incorporate it into my weekly workouts. I notice there are two other workouts by Jillian Michaels and they look interesting too. Do you have the No More Trouble Zones or the Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism workout videos? If so, please share what you think about them.
OMG you are made of tougher stuff then I. Her level 1 killed me!!! I need to dig it out again and give it a go.

Wow, getting up at 7:00 on a Sunday is NUTS! But, good for you! 🙂 I am totally impressed.

I think I’ll probably start running again after my 30 days is up. Repetition is too boring for me, and I’d like to try something new. 🙂

Tamzin, yes try it again and let me know what you think.
Sahar, it’s crazy to get up so early but I had to complete the challenge. Thankful I don’t have to do that anymore LOL
Stephanie, I wish I could run. Maybe one day but with my knees it’s not happening right now. I love variety too.
