30 Day Shred Update
I know I talk about Jillian Michaels' "30 Day Shred" A LOT, but it works! I can really tell a difference in the strength in my arms and abs. I can also tell that I have more endurance and stamina at Jazzercise. I recently started a Pilates class and my flexibility and range of motion has improved. I am able to do more planks and reps thanks to this dvd.
Now, I do not do it on a daily basis. I do it when I can't go to Jazzercise or Pilates. I'm on Level 3 now and I love it! I feel so powerful when those 30 minutes are up.
I've even gone back and done Level 1 using the weights for jumping jacks, kicks and such. It's things I've learned in Level 3 to make Level 1 harder and giving me a different workout.
I've only lost 3 pounds, but I can tell that I've built muscle and that's more important than the number on the scale.
Do you have any other tricks for the workouts? How are you feeling now that you've been doing the "30 Day Shred"?
In other news, I hit my 25th class of the year at Jazzercise last night! I am a little behind schedule due to snow and illness, but my next goal is to at least reach 50 classes before we leave on our anniversary trip. It's "do-able", right?
