Happy Mother's Day
Got to spend the afternoon with my momma (and my dad) as well as my husband and our 2 children. Was a very cold day but we stayed cozy inside and the fire was on!
I ordered myself a Mother's Day gift this year. A workout video by Jillian Michaels, called "30 Day Shred".
"Three levels of workouts led by “The Biggest Loser” trainer. These fast-paced exercises will keep you burning fat as you sculpt muscle. The programs build in intensity; you can start with the intermediate level and work up to the advanced program (it’s tough! — moves like plyo-lunges and traveling pushups).
Each workout has three “cycles.” Each cycle starts with three minutes of multi-muscle and isolated strength training. Then it’s two minutes of non-dancy kickbox and athletic-style cardio. That’s followed by one minute of classic abwork (then — no rest — you’ll immediately start a new cycle). Like on the TV show, Jillian is both demanding and supportive. Requires 3 to 5 lb. dumbbells."
Just a few minutes ago, I completed my 1st ever 30 day shred work out. My legs have stopped shaking. My heart rate has slowed. And my abs ache. Over all...I survived and plan on doing another work out tomorrow. After all, it is only 20 minutes...
