...Just not done well You know how Jillian says she wants you "gargling your throat" on the oblique twists? Yeah, a couple times during the workout today I actually felt bile rising in my throat. Not fun. I'm like the contestants on Biggest Loser that you see vomiting on the treadmill. And I was following the low-impact trainer!! So during the oblique twist section (circuit 2), I paused the DVD and just paced around my apartment for a minute or two until my stomach and racing heart calmed down a bit. Then I continued. Plank jacks, I couldn't do at all. By that point, I was too tired and out of breath, I couldn't even hold my body up for 10 seconds. So during plank jacks and the plank twists, I just went back to doing bicycle crunches from level 1.
Oh my, I didn't realize I was so much out of shape!!! And this is almost the halfway point!!

I did level 2 today and I liked it! Dh did it with me and it went by pretty fast. We did it before all the birthday stuff started today and I'm so glad because there is no way I could do it tonight!

Tiza, be careful! Don't break a toe with those weights. Wanna know my secret for sweating? Run a fan RIGHT on yourself during the workout. It's great:) I feel SO much better when I do that.
LOL my ceiling fan was on high and I had the AC vents blowing on me the whole time. I absolutely hate to sweat, so level 2 was rough for me. But I muddled through it, and ended up as a puddle on the floor.

I have to thank you all for starting this. I know every morning I SOOO do not want to get up and do this. Especially with it getting warmer outside. But once i'm done with my walk and shred (and have sweated off 5lb daily...I've had sweat in places I didn't know possible) I feel so much better. It's amazing how after you excersize in the AM you just feel "lighter"

Been very busy at work last week, getting home at 9:30pm leaves me no time and energy to do anything else but sleep So, no workout for me from Tuesday (Day 9) thru Thursday (Day 10). Ouch...three days of no workouts! Ops..again
Friday (Day 11) - we drove up to Hershey, PA. Spent the afternoon thru evening walking around Chocolate World and Zoo America. I swear, I did not eat any chocolates that day...not even the free ones they give out after the tour! But, then the only place we can think of to get dinner was at Fuddruckers, got Taco Salad though
Saturday (Day 12) - spent the whole day, walking around the Hershey Gardens and Hershey Park. Fun but so tiring day!
Sunday (Day 13) - we drove back home to a pile of laundry. And so...no workout again. Tired!
I still have to do my workout for today. Will update when I do get it done
Oh, also want to say YAY to you all for doing such a great job keeping up with your workouts!

LOL! Now that's funny!
Kim I love your garden bed. It's so cool to take a peek into your world.
WTG Carla. Did he like it?
Just to let you all know, Jeroen and I are going on a long weekend to northern France tomorrow. I am taking the laptop and Jillian along. We plan a lot of hiking, but in case it isn't enough I will be walking the plank. I will do my best to check in, but it will depend in internet access. We will be back late Sunday evening.

I love Jackson, Kim! I loved scrapping his photos a few years back!
I have a big gardening project coming up. I'll have to remember the newspaper trick!
I'm done for today! I fit in before school this morning. I really need to get in the shower but I still haven't stopped sweating yet! I know sweat means I've worked hard, and I used to love it, but now it just feels yucky!
