I know. I KNOW.
What this means is that I have now done the 30 Day Shred a full thirty times. In fact I have been doing it much longer because I only started keeping track on September 12.
I began with Level 1 and it almost killed me dead. I was a sweaty breathless heap on the floor and my legs were so sore that I couldn't walk up the steps for days without the painful reminder of what those squats actually did to me. I bravely moved up to Level 2 and looking back I think this is the hardest level of all, really. I was actually surprised at how easy it was, or should I say, how hard it wasn't? After I did the workout and then early the next morning I was a little sore but I feel fine now.
I was really just afraid of what Jillian could come up with, I was expecting something exponentially harder than Level 1 and 2 combined and it really wasn't, in fact, Level 1 and Level 2 prepared me for the final Level of the Shred. I have gained muscle and strength and stamina and I was prepared. This isn't easy for me to say because I still don't see myself as fit or in-shape but I am strong, and I suppose this SHRED thing really DOES WORK.
Now that I have completed my own 30-Day Shred Challenge I will continue to do this workout. I want to master Level 3 and then attempt to do a long workout of Level 1 and 2 combined. These are my long term goals that I hope to meet by the end of the year. I have seen results and I hope to see more!!
