Day 8 of Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred {progress update}

I just wrapped up Day 8 of Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred workout… level 2.

I am starting to feel stronger but my jumping jacks are still totally lame because I don’t want to tweak my knees.

Tomorrow, I am going to get out the mini-trampoline and do tiny jumps on it with big “jumping-jacks arms” during the jumping jack portion – just to keep my heartrate up.

My weight is the same, my stomach looks thinner (at least I think) but when I measured it, it’s the same… maybe even a tad (like less than 1/4 inch) bigger. *bummer*

My arms definitely feel stronger and when I measured my biceps, they seem to be about .1 inch bigger. Um ya, I just quantified .1 of an inch as progress. lol

So far my greatest tool has been the mini-portable DVD player… because then I can do the workout anywhere, without excuses. 🙂

This afternoon, for example, I did the shred when Chris was playing PS3 Tron and Little Dude was playing in his exersaucer and on the floor.

So this entire week I have done the shred in the evening or afternoon – I would like to challenge myself to do it in the morning before breakfast this week… see if it helps me feel energized for the day!

How’s your workout routine going this week?

I am so proud of you, that is awesome that you are keeping up with it. I started going to the rec center last week (made it twice) and did a 5k on Saturday. I am hoping to make it to the rec center 2-3 times per week and once it gets warmer I am *hoping* to go for a walk in the morning before leaving for work.
