Today, marks a new day for my weight loss program. After my 0.4 ounce gain yesterday, I have decided to amend a few things (no, nothing drastic). I have decided to do Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred for the next 30 days, then follow it up with the Ripped In 30.
I have had the 30 Day Shred since sometime early last year if not since late 2011 and did a few days of it before giving up, not this time though. I purchased the Ripped In 30 yesterday and after 28 minutes of that my entire body could feel it and I am still sore today.
I figured it made more sense to shred than it did to get ripped first, so for the next 60 days I hope to stick with Jillian Michaels, almost as if this was my version of Insanity.
The only thing I have left to do is purchase a heart rate monitor. I am kind of leaning towards a New Balance one but cannot find anyone who can give a great review of the product, other than those reviews online. Studies have shown that you are more likely to write a negative review of a product no sooner than you get it than to write a positive review about a product after you have used it.
Hopefully the New Balance monitor will be a good starter one, then later in the year (maybe in another 6 months or so) I will upgrade to a Polar Heart Rate Monitor. If I choose to purchase the New Balance monitor I will definitely give it a review after I have used it for a while.
Once I have the Heart Rate Monitor I will be posting daily pictures to Instagram with the results from the monitor and monthly updates on inches lost (if any, I sure hope there will be).
Have a great SUPERBOWL Sunday!!
Today was my first day of Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred and I can definitely say that I did not push myself hard enough (I probably didn't push myself at all), instead, I took my time and watched every single move that Jillian and her team were doing. This is the only way that I will definitely learn and the only way I will know that I am doing it correctly.
We all know that Jillian can (and will) push you to do your ultimate best and that is what I am expecting. I need someone who will push me to do my ultimate best and she is the perfect person for the job.
