That Jillian Michaels is a real bitch, but she knows what she’s doing.
Yeah, 6 push-ups isn’t much, but a few weeks ago, I could barely do one. So I’ll take it.
I did level 2 of the 30DS last night. Before volleyball. I thought I was going to die, but I didn’t, and then actually had a really good game, so it all worked out. I can really tell that the workouts are working for me, even though I still feel a bit puffy ’round the middle. I can hit harder and jump higher at games, and my reflexes are better.
Unfortunately, though, I think I’m getting shin splints in my right leg. Ick. It’s worse during the workout and right after, so I’ve been trying to ice it, but I don’t know what else to do. Guess I should start wearing shoes, huh? Boo, I much prefer working out barefooted.
But, DANG! Level two is a huge change from level one. I had read some reviews that said a lot of people found two easier than one, and let me just say that those people are insane. Or already have a lot of upper body strength. I can do the walking push-ups, but all those planks are killer. I better be buff as hell when I’m done with this – as long as level three doesn’t kill me first.
Or this week…
