I woke up yesterday thinking "I hate you Jillian Michaels." I was absolutely dreading my shred workout. I love being active, but doing the same workout, tough as it is, every single day gets old, and dull and irritating.
Rather than take the day off, I decided to challenge myself by doing level 2. I knew it'd be tough but at the very least it was a change. Let's just say that today, I went back to Level 1. :) Level 2 was really challenging - I sweated like crazy, had a good workout, and it was fun to have a change of pace, but today I needed my regular pace back.
I still find Level 1 challenging enough and am fine to stick with it for the recommended 10 days before moving back up to Level 2. I completed my workout today and feel good. I am getting better at the pushups - today I did them all without any bad ones. Mind you I still do the 'girl' pushups, but I did them all! I am also practicing regular pushups at night. So far I can do 1 without collapsing in a fit of breathlessness and giggles at the absurdity of it all.
Big weekend coming up - Little Miss is being baptized so off I go to clean the homestead for all of the ensuing company!
