Moving on to Level 2

I broke out the "30 Day Shred" last night and tried Level 2. I actually thought Level 2 was a bit easier than Level 1. I enjoyed the cardio more. All of the planks sucked, but hopefully, it'll be worth it.

I feel Level 2 more in my traps (back) and my legs (hamstrings). I thought I would feel it more in my abs, but I don't. Hmmm. Maybe I didn't squeeze hard enough?

I died laughing when Jillian said something about wanting me to feel like I was dying because I was. Level 2 was not easy by any means, but it was a nice break from Level 1's pain. I think I may alternate between the two and add in Level 3 for variation. If you do one level for too long, your muscles will get used to the routines and it will be harder for you to see results.

This dvd is also great because they have a person doing the beginner motions and one doing the more advanced version. I think both versions will provide you with a workout that you're comfortable with and one that will show results.
I've been wanting to get back into yoga, but there aren't any classes offered around me. So, I'm also thinking about getting "The Biggest Loser - The Workout: Weight Loss Yoga". Does anyone have this? Let me know.


As I mentioned on Monday, I loved the Spinach, Tomato, Feta and Egg Wrap from Starbucks. Well, last night for dinner, I made the Hungry Girl version and it was even better than the Starbucks version and it's less than 200 calories. Fred really enjoyed it as well.

I'm also thinking of purchasing this cookbook since I am in love with Hungry Girl. Does anyone have it?

In other news, Tennessee's head football coach has left to take a head coaching position at USC. Since Jim Leavitt from South Florida, my alma mater, was fired last week, I hope Tennessee doesn't pick him up or else I'd be forced to like Tennessee. Ugh! Does it make me a bad wife if I don't care for the school where my husband played basketball?

Is it Friday yet?

I love The Shred, and that it has 3levels...

It cracked me up in Level 2 when Jillian said something about 'gargling your heart' At that moment I wan't sure if my heart was still beating.

I have BL Yoga. I love it. It's not easy! But I love Bob more than Jillian so I enjoy it more. My husband even does it and he's pouring sweat by the end!

I love doing workout videos I find On Demand because the last time I bought an actual workout dvd I only watched it about six times b/c it was boring after I knew the dance by heart.

I usually look up recipes on Hungry Girl and probably wouldn't buy the cookbook b/c my collection is quite large already. However my bff has it and loves it. I think that Cooking Light is another great website to find healthy recipes!

Hey! I was looking on Jillian's facebook page, and she said something about her yoga video coming out. I don't know if it's the same as the Biggest Loser one or not. Glad to know you're liking video! I am liking it, too!

I purchased The 30 Day Shred not too long ago, but I still haven't tried it. I must quit procrastinating and break it out!

I don't have the BL Yoga DVD, but I have done it a few times with a friend, and I really liked it. It was challenging but not impossible.

Good for you, girl! I'm still waiting for mine to get in from borders.com so the other day when I was at Walgreens I saw the 30 day jump start with Tara, Ali & friends and started that yesterday to just keep me busy in the mean time! Honestly I couldn't breather after the cardio! Ahhh how am I going to handle the shred ?!? LOL

I do not have that particular Hungry Girl cookbook but I did get the 200 under 200 one for Christmas. I really like it. There are several things in there that I would never make but then there are some really simple and quick recipes too.

Great job on Level 2! I have to say, it is my least favorite of the three. I enjoy Level 3 because it's less arms and I am a huge arm wimp!
