30 Day Shred Day 15 Level 2

Todays workout was a bit rough. I just have such a hard time holding the plank pose for 30 seconds at a time. Ugh. It's KILLER. :) I feel like I stopped a lot today. My shoulders were on FIRE, my knees hurt, my arms ached. *sigh*

Gosh Jillian. You make it look so darn easy! :(

Alas, I did not have the best form in my workout today. I was just trying to make it through without dying. :) Obviously, I am alive. So at least I made it. I am a lil dissapointed that I didn't push myself harder today. I have 4 more level 2 workouts before I start level 3. I need to kick it into gear and start work on my form!

After the 30 days are over I will be taking 15 more days to do level 2 and 15 more to do level 3. My hubby and I will hopefully be working out together on this DVD. Either way I am sticking it out though. Level 1 had a lot of jumping that just wracked my knees. This is why I am skipping it. 

I think it will be good for us if we do the DVD. :) Looking forward to it. Hope he will do it.

Also, I am pairing Jillians Yoga Meltdown with my 30 Day Shred. I ordered it through Netflix tonight. I should get it in a few days. Kinda want to make it my nightime workout while Shred will be my day routine. :) If I love it I'll buy it at the store. Wanna try it out 1st.

Looks like it'll be killer, but good!

G'night all!


  1. Shoulders are on fire...? sounds like you're doing better with form, haha. Keep it up :) It really does look sooo much easier than it actually is. Let me know how you like the yoga DVD! I didn't think to look for these vids on netflix.

    Ooohh I'm trying to talk my guy into doing the shred with me next time around too! He is seeing a difference in me so fast that he is asking a little about it on his own haha!

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her

I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

My 1st week at my NEW JOB!!

Guys I got the job!!!
I am so excited I can't even begin to express it! I'm paying for my girls to be able to go to school and I'm contributing towards bills and it feels wonderful!! I know that as a stay-at-home mom I contributed a lot to my family dynamic, but there's something about being able to give financially towards expenses that feels amazing! 
Anyway, my first week passed and I can't tell you how great it was. The first three days I was training and would have to say that while I had what I feel like we're "training wheels" I was able to glean a lot of information from the person training me. By the fourth day she sort of did the 50/50 of letting me work by myself and assisting me. By day 5 she had gone out of town and I was working by myself! I can't tell you how awesome it felt to be able to sit at my desk and do the job that I was trained to do within 5 days AND feel like I was doing it well. It's a great feeling.

It also doesn't…

Week 15 Day 1

I can hardly believe that I have made it to 15 weeks of working out consistently. I've been eating healthy and gluten free for that long too! It's amazing to see how my body has changed and my energy level has been impacted. I am so very happy about what  diligence has done for me. I never want to go back to being inactive. 
I have been thinking about different goals. Finding myself considering how I can best  take my workouts up a notch. Never thought I would see myself be the person that would need to tweak a work out because I've gotten stronger. I have never stuck to anything long enough to see myself get to that point. It is beyond exciting.
I was in the car the other day and was daydreaming about learning something new like kickboxing or MMA. The crazy part about it is that it is totally possible for me to do something like that. I mean, I have been active long enough to where I could see it being a definite possibility. Maybe I should take a look around in my area …
