With all my contemplating, balancing, and changing up of things I’ve decided to post more “personal” information on my blog. Yeah weird huh? As much as I was talking about limiting the time I’m on my blog I go and post even more. Well that is how I roll. I’ve decided I want to bring more of a personal touch into my blog as I continue with the giveaways as well.
The reason why I haven’t done this is the past is because I thought I couldn’t post too much each day because people would miss the post I wanted them to read. I realized this weekend that people will read my blog if they want and will read all, none, or a couple of post so stop worrying about what others will do and post as you see fit.
So with that I’m going to post my progress on Jillian Michael’s 30-Day Shred program. I swear I did a review on this in the past but for the life of me I can not find it on my blog so I must have either not posted it or hit the delete button at some point in time. If you are not familiar with her DVD it is one of the best quick workouts that I have come across. I totally love it and it is a great jump start to getting back on track.
So I got my butt out of bed this morning at 5:30 for my first day. I grabbed my 32oz bottle of water, threw in my headband, grabbed some exercise clothes and headed to the living room. The first program consists of.
5 or so minute warm-up
3 minutes strength (push ups, squats with presses, then repeat once more)
2 minutes aerobics (30 seconds jumping jacks, 30 seconds of jump rope, then repeat once more)
1 minute abs (30 seconds crunches, 30 seconds reverse crunches)
3 minutes strength (rows[back exercise], lunges with bicep curls- repeat once more)
2 minutes aerobics (30 seconds of butt kicks, 30 seconds of punches then repeat once more0
1 minute abs (30 seconds of butt kicks, 30 seconds of punches)
3 minutes strength (laying down flys [for chest], side lunges with lateral raises, then repeat once more)
2 minutes aerobics (30 seconds of jumping jacks, 30 seconds of butt kicks, 30 seconds of punches, 30 seconds of jump rope)
1 minute abs (bicycle)
5 minutes or so of cool down.
I felt FANTASTIC this morning when I was done. I was a little shaky for a while but it felt so good to get my body moving once more!
