Twenty-minute workout DVD. Beginner level. Two days in a row.
Thanks to you, Jillian Michaels, now I can hardly walk up – or down – the stairs.
I didn’t know what I was getting into when I purchased Thirty Day Shred at Target. Let me just say this: I love it. I really do. It’s just…a little surprising that I feel so much pain from twenty minutes, especially since I’ve been working out consistently for a while.
If you read my last post, you know I started my second draft this week. So far, it’s going great, and today has already been productive. Since this project requires much time and focus, I thought it wise to come up with a home-based workout. Back in November, I signed up for the new gym in town. They said construction would end in December, so I started going to the one twenty minutes down the road. It’s now July, and it’s still not done. (LAME.) So, I always try to make the drive worth my time. Usually, I do some combo of weights and cardio, except on yoga days. As a result, it takes about an hour and forty minutes of my day, including the drive.
An hour and forty minutes is valuable time, as anyone who does anything is well aware. Add in my mane of curls – clean hair means an additional half hour. An alternate means of working out is necessary if I truly want to focus on my second draft. I bought Jillian Michaels’ workout, even though I was hesitant to substitute twenty minutes for my usual hour of activity.
Little did I know that these twenty minutes would make me feel so sore. I can’t believe I’m only on level one, out of three. I’m pleased to know I won’t be getting out of shape while I focus on my writing. So, for all you busy people out there – this workout is great. Just be warned that you will feel it the next day.
