Last week I started Jillian Michael's 30 day shred. 15 minutes into it I quit. People in my house were sick and I felt terrible during the workout I should have stuck it out but I really felt bad.
The next day I could feel the pain. My entire body was feeling it for three days!
This weekend was super busy for my family and I never got around to getting back to the workout, but I did do a TON of walking this weekend, so I am pretty sure that I burned a ton of calories with all the walking.
I thought that today would be a little easier on the on the workout front. It was not. That DVD was just as hard today as it was last week. I guess it is just going to be hard for a while. Hopefully tomorrow I will not be as sore. I am doing the workout with 5 pound weights and the DVD recommends 3. I feel shaky when I end the DVD so I am thinking that I need to invest in some smaller weights. Problem is that I really just do not want to invest the money in smaller weights. Isn't the point to work up not down? I really think the combo of cardio and weights is what is making this workout so hard. Usually I just do cardio or weights.
Needless to say its going to be a struggle. Its been a difficult few weeks on the workout front. I don't even have the energy to run. I am going to try and have an early dinner and see if I can find the energy to run this evening. I am tired!
