Me- 1 Jillian- O

I finally faced off with Jillian! It took me a few weeks to get around to her, but I did level 1 of the 30 Day Shred for the first time in about six months. I was nervous, as anyone would be when dealing with the workout Nazi. Mostly I fear the sore legs that come as a result of all the squats and lunges. 

I remember the first time I did the Shred back in December of last year. DANG was that hard! I huffed and puffed my way through it wanting to DIE. This time...meh. Not so much! The cardio part had my heart rate up a bit, but I was by no means breathing hard, even by the 3rd round. I couldn't believe it wasn't harder! But, I have been running for what, three or four months now? It's just really cool to see how much better my cardio is now. Yayyy for running! 

But about those sore legs...ummm yes....I think perhaps I will have those. The strength part was still a bit harder. I SUCK at push ups again. Fuck. I was getting pretty good at those (still girly style) when working with trainer girl in June. I am happy to be working my arms and legs that way again. 

In an ideal world, I will do Jillian in the morning and do a run in the eve. Right now with the man's sched. that means a late dinner and then a later run- last time was about 9:30. So that's not ideal, but I'll give it a try as much as I can. 

I just had to share my cardio victory with y'all! Whooo!

Have a great weekend- mine is all about paintin and some socializing...a lunch and a BBQ with friends. :)

See you next week (I'll be the one hobbling, prolly)!

Congrats on kicking Jillian's ass, ok sort of, this time! I have reaquainted myself with Bob via the bootcamp today Tammy. FINALLY!

I need to find me a copy of that. I'd like to have her kick my ass. It's about what I need right now and Bob just ain't cutting it on The Biggest Loser Wii.

By the way...your June pic? GORGEOUS!

I totally admire and envy your ability to run late at night. Some of my neighbors do that too. Me? Notsomuch! If I lose my momentum from work and I don't go STRAIGHT from work to workout, I find it really difficult to get my arse off the sofa. How do you DO that? :)
