Day 4 Down

My muscles are still quivering from Day 4 of the Shred. It took me a long time today to work up the energy to do the video. I sat twittering (tweet me @ Snippet) in my workout clothes for over an hour. Before starting the dvd I was thinking, "I know it's only 4 days into this, but I'm bored with this same workout already."

And then, I started the workout...and I was wrong!

This still totally kicks my butt, and I'm not even close to perfecting anything! I'm huffing and puffing shortly after the warm up is over. Today: I didn't have to stop and take a real 1+ minute break! This is a victory! I did, however, take several little 5 second breathers like Jillian allows.

I am not as sore as I was a few days ago. I can see definition in my quads! And (I cheated) I've lost 1/2 a pound so far!

I'm getting curious about what Level 2 has to offer. I'm also beginning to worry that if I haven't perfected Level 1 at the end of 10 days, how will I manage Level 2?!

I wonder how many times I will need to do the Shred before I am able to complete the workout without breaking a sweat like Jillian and The Girls?

Day 4 of Level 1 done! Day 4 of 30 done! 26 to go...


  1. Yay!

    You do realize that you could have completed it 3 times in the time you sat and tweeted, right? ;) Just kidding.

    As you know, I'm doing it all over again, and I'm *still* exhausted at the end. But, I don't cry anymore. LOL

    You can handle Level 2 if you do 10 days of Level 1. Perfection isn't the key...it's persistence, and you have that!!

    Good luck!!

  2. Thanks! I think I'm on the bandwagon for good, but it's hard to keep up the motivation to do it EVERY DAY! There aren't many things I do *every day*, except sleep and eat! LOL I guess I'll have to change that list to: sleep, eat, shred!
