As I told y'all yesterday, I finally did my first day on 30 Day Shred on Tuesday. It was HARD. Our AC is out in our house so the ceiling fan was all I had to keep cool, so I definitely felt like I was going to faint at one point and had to pause and stick my face in the fridge for a few seconds. I also will admit I half-assed a couple of the moves. But rest assured, I must have done something right because yesterday I literally could. not. move. Every muscle in my body hurt. I haven't hurt like that in........as long as I can remember. Damn Jillian.
And I was insistent upon doing it again when I got home despite the pain, but when I arrived at my house it was approximately 90 degrees inside. With the fan on. With humidity (which might be no big deal to you folks that live in the rest of the country, but here in San Diego humidity is unheard of). So I decided to make myself a chicken caesar salad for dinner and call it a day. Today I'll do it when I get home because my muscles don't hurt as bad (even though I might do it in the nude).
Anyway. Here are my official starting stats:
Arms: 13 1/4"
***I didn't bother measuring my bust because, well, I don't care if those shrink or not. So there.
And now for some official "before" pics...don't judge me....and remember, it's fucking hot in my house with 0 air circulation, hence the sweat.
Eek. No rolls in the standing position just yet, but I'll definitely get there if I don't get a grip on this soon. I'm currently at size 12 (tight) and large, and 5'8".
I want to try to do 30DS 4 days a week, and go to the gym 1-2 days a week (I am, after all, paying for it). This week I've done it once, and I'll do it today and Saturday and Sunday. Then take a day at the gym on Monday, and get back at it on Tuesday. Hopefully I'll be able to move up into level 2 by Tuesday or Wednesday of next week!
If any of you have done 30 Day Shred before, what was it like for you in the beginning? Were you as out of shape as me??? God, help me.
Because I got through one day and haven't thrown the DVD in the trash can, I'm calling this a NSV too.
I'll leave you all with this:
