30 day shred challenge- week 1

February 24, 2012

Oh Jillian, how I love to hate her.  Today I finished day 5 of level 1 and I will take a 2 day off break for the weekend and will be back to it to finish the next 5 days of level 1 next week.

I have a wonderful group of ladies that are totally supporting encouraging and forcing each other to keep shredding.  It’s great motivation knowing that I will have to answer to them if I skip shredding because I am too lazy tired.

Not going to lie the first few days I was sore, my quads were killing me, getting up and down from the toilet was the worst.  I dreaded having to pee.  Which I do just about every 2-3 hours from all the water I am drinking.

Having done the whole 30 days shred now 4 times, I can tell a few differences in my body.  Though I was sore, I wasn’t nearly as sore as the first go round.  The first time the soreness was in my calves.  This time I am not sore in my calves at all, I can’t figure out why that would be.  It’s literally been over 1 year since I last shredded.  Is there such a thing as muscles memory?  Like my muscles remembered this and thus-ly didn’t get as sore?  Who knows, but it’s an awesome feeling to be sore and know your body is changing for the better.

I even got DT to do the shred with me today, he made it through the first 2 levels then wimped out.  He hated the crunches (which are my favorite because I am laying on the ground)but at  least  he now has a better appreciation the all the pain work I put myself through.

If anyone else would like to join in, please let me know.  We even started a 30 day shred facebook page. 

If you’re not familiar with the Jillian Michael’s 30 day shred video, and to read more about my experience.

Yay!!! Good for you! Sounds like you’re off to a great start!

I just ordered Jillian Michael’s Body Revolution program. I really hope it’ll help switch things into high gear for me!

You ladies are such a huge support system. I’m really excited to have a little extra motivation :)
