Day Four | Level Two | 30 Day Shred

Can you believe I have kept up with this work out for over two weeks? (Not including the two days I had to skip.) Two weeks!? That's amazing. I have never kept up with a work out like this before! It feels AWESOME. But guess what? That's not the best news of all. I woke up today feeling skinnier! I look in the mirror at my body and I don't feel disgusted. Because I know I'm sticking with it. I can do this!

I'm not going to fool you. I have not felt motivated AT ALL this past week. I have woke up, dreading the work out BUT I do it any way. I put the DVD in, grab my weights and a water and turn it on, get through all of it without stopping and my favorite part of the whole thing? Turning it off! BUT I don't turn it off until it's completely over. I have stuck with it and I am so proud of myself!

Today, I could have napped instead. Both of my boys are napping right now, together, once again (they haven't napped together the past month.) But, instead, I sucked it up and worked out. I'm really glad I did. I knew if I didn't, I wouldn't be able to at all today and I just couldn't live with myself if I skipped a day, on purpose! I've got to do this if I want to see results. And boy, Jillian gives results.

Until tomorrow, thanks for reading! =)


  1. Mic G, you're doing awesome. Once I have some time, I want to do this too! I'm not too worried about "skinnier" because I've worked myself into a diet that works for me (and I'm only like 5 lbs away from my goal), but I sure do need to tone up.

    Is the shred good for toning too?

    You're awesome! Good job sticking with it. Halfway done right?

  2. I know how you feel about searching for the motivation...some days I just do not want to workout, but I get my weights, water and turn it on and do it anyway! But I feel much better afterward!

    Sasha, this is more strength training than cardio, so to me, I am building muscles, toning up but the fat isnt just melting off, KWIM? I mean, you do lose fat, but its more of a muscle building DVD. I see definition in my arms, shoulders, my abs are getting the lines again and my legs are looking nice. Oh, and I noticed my butt is lifted too!
