YES, I'm Still Working On My Fitness...Thanks Jillian

The beginning of November I purchased a DVD that was very popular when I was apart of this fitness group back in January. It's called the 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels. Although I haven't been on the message board in 3-4 months, I still keep in touch with a few of the ladies that are/were apart of the group. One chica I follow encouraged me to start the 30 Day Shred, and I've been contemplating for awhile. one reason being is, when the ladies would work out at a set time (from stat-to-state) they would mention how sore they were, and how difficult some of the work outs were. So that made me shine it away. Not a good reason...I know.

I said what the heck let me get it. I'm not able to hit the gym like I want to (4-5 days a week). I must say this was a great idea/purchase. I thanked her for having my back & encouraging to go ahead & purchase this DVD.  It has three different levels of work outs. They're approx. 2-25 minutes each. You need weights & a mat (if you choose). I don't use a mat, nor weights. I use water bottles, or you can use canned goods.

I'll also be starting another work out DVD after I'm done with the 30 Day Shred. I'm on Day 9. I had stopped working out the week of Thanksgiving because I was doing a lot of running around & working (retail) & I didn't want to be sore & annoyed as I'm trying to get work done. But other than that, I haven't missed any days. But trust me, there are days where I'm like "I'm too tired & sleepy", or "I'll just skip this day"...My support system is strong & I thank them for that :)

Question: What are you doing to stay in shape? Don't allow the holidays to be your crutches on why you're not doing what's right for you.
