Jillian Michaels: 30 Day Shred - Day 1

So after seeing xFLYNNIEx (Tammi) posting her first 3 videos of her experience with 30 Day Shred. I decided that its time for me to get in shape too. Motivation is always good, and knowing that Tammi is doing this should keep me motivated to keep at it. So yesterday I went to Wal-Mart and picked up the DVD for $9. I did not pick up any hand weights because I already have some.

So today, was my first day of doing the workout. I did level 1 - modified. Its a 20 minute workout, 3 intervals of 3 minutes of strength, 2 minutes of cardio and 1 minute of abs. I really worked up a sweat and after the workout, my whole body was shaking. I haven't worked out this hard in almost 8 years! Regardless, it felt good. My body is going to feel so sore tomorrow!

I have not done an initial weigh-in because I don't own a scale but I'm sure I will be able to see the difference in my waistline and my stomach. When I do get a chance to check my weight, I'll write a post about it.

I'm not following the official diet on the website. At this time, it would be too difficult to buy and cook separate meals just for me simply because my boyfriend and I don't live on our own anymore. However, I will make changes where I can and will definitely be cutting out the soda.

What I ate today:
Breakfast: a bowl of Chocolate Bunches of Oats and a banana
Lunch: tuna and crackers
Dinner: 1 grilled brat (normally I would have at 2 or 3)
