I am Shredded!

Tuesday, August 4, 2009
I jumped on The 30-Day Shred bandwagon! I really feel like jumping back off it though but I know it would hurt LOL! Literally, my thighs are killing me. This morning I practically fell down the stairs because my legs didn't know if they wanted to bend in pain or stay straight with pain! I was only able to endure about 12 mins of the first level. I know that it will take me some time to get myself into a normal routine because right now I am just not use to it! Honestly doing the warm up exercises winded me but I stuck through! I will not mention that I wanted to knock her out because she was too dang perky! Not to mention Jillian and the two other girls look great! That is enough to depress you in itself! Especially when they are doing the ab exercises and the focus on the "beginner" girl and her abs...I wanted to smack the TV! Hell, I got a freaken keg for abs!


I am going to do it again tonight and see how far I can get through it. But first on the way home I am going to have to go by Walmart or something and invest in a heavy duty sports bra because I almost knocked my own self out when I was doing those darn jumping jacks that Jillian just LOVED doing! I really enjoyed it except for the excruciating pain in my legs...but hopefully that will pass! My body is in total shock! I went to pee earlier and stayed there for a few mins because my knee was hurting...now I know what Ace was talking about!

I'm not kidding, be careful. I've been really scared to try it again! I seriously felt like my knee cap was going to pop off and could barely walk on it. I've had TONS of people find my blog by googling "shred knee pain" so I don't think I'm the only one. I'd love to get back into it, but the lunges scare me with that knee now.

But you can do it! It does feel amazing (until the next day)! You're inspiring me!

A sports bra is a very very good idea, indeed. I know I have to wear one for any kind of exercising. If I don't... I'll end up with two black eyes. ;-)

LMAO. 30 Day Shred is awesome and horrifying at the same time. I almost fell down after the first time I tried it. But she gets the job done! Just be careful!

As far as a sports bra, try a Champion sports bra, style # 1694. Amazon.com has it as well as reviews, its pricey but wellllll worth the money.

Ok, so now I have to see what this 30 day shred is all about. I'm adding it to netflix, I'll have to let you know how it goes, lol.

Ha, this is a funny post! But I know you're not laughing (too much). At least you know it works, right?
I think I'll do the Shred eventually, but I'm not ready yet...a few more weeks of kickboxing class first, I think!
