>Curses!! Level 2!!!!!

>This morning I did Level 2 for the first time!

Holy hannah!!! Now I know what all the moaning about Planks was for ….auuuugh! My shoulders!! My poor aching shoulders! Jillian, you saucy minx…you are trying to kill me!

I was panting and cursing by the end (I owe the curse jar approximately $6.25), BUT, strangely I think I like Level 2 better? Is that possible? Maybe I was just utterly sick of damn jumping jacks and Level 1 altogether. (oh fudge, I said damn…25 cents please). It was fun to try some new moves.

I had to follow Anita the whole time, but I finished. Phew! Jillian always says “If you want to look like Natalie – follow her” and in my head I always say “but I want to look like Aneeeeeeeeta!!” Natalie is too muscular for my taste, I would kill to be slender but firm, like Miss A. I think I will use that as my excuse for sticking with the modified moves. Thumbs up!

Lets see….hmmm…
some tidbits….

I got fab new sneakers…gotta take a pic.

Have lost 2 pounds (162.5 now) but have decided to quit weighing myself for a few weeks. I was getting a little obsessed. Just want to try to eat healthy foods and stop thinking about it so much.

I am using 1 pound weights now, because after doing some reading…i don’t want to bulk up my already broad arms/back/shoulders. We’ll see how it goes, I can always switch back to 3 pounders.

My workout pants AND underwear kept falling down during my workout. Am I toning or are they just cheap?

Now I must go, gonna try to teach my 15 month old how to give Momma a nice neck massage.

Keep on Shreddin’!

    >I actually like L2 the best so far. The first day was really hard and those planks killed, but now it’s not so bad. I only did L1 for a couple of days and then moved up to L2. I’m going to brave L3 today, but think I just might stick to L2 if there’s too much jumping (which is what everyone says). Good job on making it through! Tomorrow should be easier (hopefully).

    >WOOOHOOO!!!! YAY for level 2! That’s awesome. I really hate the scale. If i hadn’t committed to losing 20 pounds in 20 weeks, I’d never step on it…EVER!

    >I have to admit: yours is the only blog I will read about shredding. Perhaps because I am afraid reading more will make me join the team. I am easily influenced! Do you have to do it everyday? You go girl! I am so impressed!

    >Marlynn, come drink the kool-aid, c'mon it won't hurt but a bit. And, it took me about 36 days to do the 30-day shred b/c I had a few days off here and there.I have been trying some other workouts now that I've finished the Shred but I miss the Shred (did I just write this?). I think I may try doing Level 1 & 2 next week although I'm sure I'll be cursing the planks too. $.25 a curse? Yeesh, I'd run out of cash!
