30 day shred? Yes please!
I have started a new workout, Jillian Michaels 30 day shred DVD. Some things I really like about this workout...
1) Its 20 minutes long! Who doesn't want to workout for 20 minutes and see results!
2) I have know several people who have done it and heard great things about it
3) I have never had such a good workout in such a short period of time and been pouring sweat at the end.
4) Who doesn't like working out with her! I mean she is insane!
Let me tell you a little history in the world of Hannah working out. I have never been very athletic, just wasn't my thing. I struggled with my weight in high school and decided to do something about it and lost over 30 pounds. I became more active just for health reasons but was not hardcore at all. Before I got married I, like ever other girl out there wanted to get in shape for my wedding day. So I walked and I walked and did pushups and sit-ups. Felt great on my wedding day and on our mexican beach honeymoon! When I moved to NY (the frozen tundra..and did I mention I moved there in December) I needed some hobbies to keep me busy in a new place and living this new life for me. So I joined the YMCA and spent LOTS of time there and loved it! I got in the best shape I have been in my life and felt great. I wasn't anything impressive but for me it was! I became addicted to spin classes and that is a real workout! I had a couple friends who I worked out with some and that kept me going. That next summer...I got pregnant...and with that I got sick. The gym was the last thing I had on my mind! So for a couple months I layed on the couch, worked at starbucks and slept. Once I felt better again I got back into working out some but nothing like before just to keep me active during my pregnancy.
Now this brings us to the present! And wow, I am back to my pre-baby wedding day weight and can now wear all my clothes but...things don't look like they used to! I had these white shorts I wore that summer and I wanta wear them again! So my new goal is to firm up this body and who better to do it with then Jillian Michaels! I want to feel ok wearing a swimsuit this summer and be proud to wear a sleevless shirt. I'm telling you all this because I plan to keep you updated on my progress! And if you see me ask me about it..I need to be kept accountable!
