In a previous post, I mentioned that I do not do well and cannot sustain a regimen when it warrants a complete overhaul of my life so I'm starting small with Jillian Michaels 30-day shred.
Jillian Michaels is one of TV's toughest trainer best known for her stint on NBC's The Biggest Loser and she is committed to getting results. As your own personal trainer, Jillian will guide you through her exclusive 3-2-1 Interval System that combines strength, cardio and abs to burn calories for a dramatic 30 DAY SHRED. The program includes three complete 20-minute workouts which progress by level of intensity. I started with Level 1 yesterday and plan to advance to Level 2 after the first 10 days. Today marked Day 2 of Level 1 and I feel pretty good.
I had the toughest time pressing play on Day 1, mostly because I have this fear of failure that I need to get past. I swear, I must have paused it 5 times within the first 5 minutes. But I did sit down, pray, hype myself up, got back up, pressed play and pushed through. It's not too difficult of a workout and it only lasts 20 minutes which is great! The only equipment needed is a mat and a set of hand weights. I used my 5 and 8 lb weights for various parts of the workout. It was much easier to get going on Day 2 and I suspect tomorrow will be even easier despite the fact that I'll be doing it at 5:15 am before work....EEK!
I'll workout 6 days a week reserving Thursdays for my swim class. We'll see how it goes. So far so good. I feel pretty good and I'm looking forward to reporting some fantastic results. I really feel like this is a sustainable start to my lifestyle change. Has anyone else used the 30 Day Shred? How did it work for you?
It's not about perfect. It's about effort. And when you bring that effort every single day, that's where transformation happens. That's how change occurs.
