Default 30 Day Shred in May

I'm planning to do Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred in May. Anyone wanna join me?

I read somewhere that Jillian actually recommends not doing the program every day but to alternate it with a cardio workout and to include rest days, so that is what I am going to attempt. (2 days of 30DS, 1 day of cardio, 1 rest day, 2 days of 30DS, 1 rest day)

L1: D1 (May 3)

I did it I did it I did it!!! Of course, I wanted to hurl a hand weight at the TV when Jillian said we were doing jumping jacks for like the 20th time. I survived, though, and it really wasn't too terrible. I'm gonna feel it in the morning. I'm sure of that.

I didn't feel as bad this morning as I thought I would. But - woa - did I ever feel the burn while doing the workout for Day 2! Totally doable, however...ow. Also, I hate jumping jacks. Hatehatehate.

Thanks for joining in souvenirdarling and aliciaf1!

souvenirdarling - If you've done this before, it should be eazypeazy. I'm using 3 pound hand weights.

aliciaf1 - Wow, not even one rest day? You're a beast!

Funny thing this morning. I woke up, rolled out of bed, and was halfway across the room to turn off the alarm when I realized I was feeling all kinds of hurt. (Not horrible but certainly intense.) That'll wake you up right quickly.

Not certain what I'll do for cardio today. My thighs and abs are screaming for mercy.

My stats on D1:

Weight - 164.9
Pants size 8

Waist (at belly button): 36
Stomach (above belly button): 34
Belly (below belly button): 38.5
Hips: 40
Chest (below bust): 33
Bust: 38
Thigh: 25 (widest part)
Calf: 16 (widest)
Bicep: 13
Forearm: 10 (widest)

First day of shred, level 1. Needed some water during but otherwise good. 10 pushups each circuit.

And I am taking 2 days of rest from shred - but I at least walk/jog everyday with my son in stroller now, so i am hoping i can keep that up!

Wow, our stats are so similar aliciaf1! That should make it really interesting to compare how this impacts each of us.

Go you on completing Day 1!

For my cardio I did a Leslie Sansone 1-mile walk video. I wanted something low-key but that was too easy. Oh, well, at least I was moving, right?

I don't know much about the video, but always good to ease your way in. Now you know for next time!

Level 1 Day 2:

I think maybe because the cardio is not intense and prolonged, you won't sweat much? I guess it depends on the temp of the room where you're working out, also.

L1 : D3 is on my agenda for this afternoon. And I was finally starting to not be in agonizing pain. *le sigh*
