So if you've been following my journey through my first 30 days of Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred, you know that yesterday was my last day of that. At least for this go-round.
Several twitter friends of mine, at my "Ok, so I lost 12.5 pounds in the first go-round. Which I guess is good." tweet responded with variations on "Are you kidding? That is AWESOME!" So... If I seemed a bit blah in the weigh-in post, let me restate...
I LOST 12.5 POUNDS IN MY FIRST TIME THROUGH THE 30 DAY SHRED!!!!!! :D
Regardless, I finished all 30 days, and so as I promised myself, my reward for doing all 30 days is I get to start Jillian's Yoga Meltdown. Now, my intent had been to buy it, but the reality of NYC rents and needing to have food to survive set in, and I realized that I'll need to buy it with my paycheck next Friday. In the meantime, netflix has it!! Gotta love their no return dates thing!!
I've done yoga before, but it's been a while (it's on my list of things to start back at the studio I went to once I can swing it...hopefully summer school money will allow that), so I started with Level 1. And I'm glad I did! Level 1 is plenty tough to start with. You're using your body for your muscle resistance.
And yes, I was plenty sweaty when I finished, so it's definitely a workout!
But I LOVE it!!!
