A solid sweaty 25 min. I don’t know why I ever thought boring sessions on the treadmill/machines at the gym were the only way to work out effectively. 3 days ago

Made it to level 2. Hated Jillian today. Usually I use my period as the ultimate excuse for not working out/doing any exercise, but not this time. But it meant, I was kind of pissed off already and I got really irritable when she dived right into moves that weren’t immediately obvious without taking time to explain. BUT…I worked out and sweated and that’s good. 3 days ago
Last day of level 1.
And so happy with my progress on shred level 3 – can finally do the traveling push-ups properly, not the modified version on my knees. I am NOT imagining the firmer upper arms.
I think that I have finally made exercise a habit again. I don’t just feel guilty when I skip, I actually don’t feel good physically. 6 days ago
I’m upping the walking to running. Jogging really. Slow jogging as much as I’m able. And I’m loving it. I’ve managed to do this daily and it actually makes me feel so happy. Half the time when I attempt the jogging I can’t really breathe and it sounds like an elephant is approaching but I don’t really give a shit. It’s just so good. Hopefully I won’t be stopping. 6 days ago
My super-intense 7 days are over. Now for another 7 before going into more “regular” workouts. 1 week ago
Tried Denise Austin’s cardio kickbox. I had looked at a couple of her videos but her personality didn’t really appeal to me at first so I didn’t really bother giving her workouts a chance. Decided to try her kickboxing workout today so as to get in enough cardio but not make it repetitive by doing Jillian’s twice. Wow! A lot more challenging than I expected, it really pushed me. Will do it again. 1 week ago
Another Jillian workout. She is so motivating, has made me look forward to exercising again.
Dripping sweat today. 1 week ago
I love Jillian’s level 2 of the 30-day shred. It’s challenging but still very enjoyable. 1 week ago
Shred Level 3 + Ripped in 30
My upper body strength has really improved and I can keep up with the aerobic exercises a lot more than before. 1 week ago
I’m really enjoying exercising. I’m not doing anything too hard out. I haven’t exercised properly for ages so I figure if I at least try to get out and move daily then that’s a step in the right direction. And I’m LOVING it.
I can see in my minds eye that I would love to get more involved in other forms. Maybe try to work up to running. Would love to do boxing stuff. Either way, going to try and keep this up. I’m feeling better. I’m feeling happier. So it’s all good. 2 weeks ago

Go me! 2 weeks ago
Got almost ZERO sleep last night, but I still did the bike for a 1/2 hour this morning.
And then I tried this homemade body scrub, and it really was amazing… http://pinterest.com/pin/36028865741710807/ 3 weeks ago

Next week, I’m joining the zumba classes and walking in between. This is silly. Walking starts tomorrow. Whether I’m awake enough to do it or not. 4 weeks ago
Had stupid back problems but they’re fixed.
Anyway . . . tomorrow is chance number two. I look forward to it! 1 month ago
So, the exercise every day is a part of something I have to prove to myself and to a whole bunch of other people. It’s part of the whole taking care of myself. I want to be nicer and kinder to myself and doing this is a part of this. Being sensible and better. I like who I am as a person. That’s fine. Being smaller though, should help with other things. Like making shopping a little bit cheaper. Like catching a plane a little less stressful. Etc. I’m looking forward to it! Even though I know it’ll be a little bit of work. Wish me luck! 1 month ago
