This evening will be my 10th evening in a row being slapped around by Jillian. If you have started your Shredding and you are on the first few days let me give you some tips.
Understand, you don't have to adhere to my suggestions, I'm only saying you may want to if you plan on being able to get around your house and up and down the stairs by crawling on your hands and knees....
Tip #1~Just because you have access to more that 5lb weights doesn't mean your bad ass enough to use them.
Tip #2~Drink water, lots and lots of water. You know if you DON'T want to get lightheaded.
Tip #3~Eat a FEW hours before to avoid having to swallow your dinner for the 2nd time.
Tip #4~Stretch out BEFORE you start the video because Jillian's quick warm up is so not enough.
Tip #5~DO NOT MOVE ON TO LEVEL 2 UNTIL YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY SURE YOU HAVE MASTERED LEVEL 1
Tip #6~Re-Read tip number 5 and let it sink in.....
Tip #7~Whatever weight you thought you mastered in Level 1 decrease by 2 lbs because you WILL NOT be able to do the same for Level 2 right away.
Tip #8~It's OK to do the "Anita" version, it is still a valid work out, we all can't look like "Natalie" in 30 days. Seriously. Believe me I have been trying...and failing.
Tip#9~Did I say not to move on to Level 2 until you are really ready?? Ahem.
Tip #10~Celebrate any amount of progress you make, seriously I am proud that I have lost 1/2 an inch off of my mid thigh area.
I had taken more pictures but realized they look pretty much the same so just click here if you want to see them. I think I'll take more photo's on Friday and hopefully see some type of change because seriously it hurts just to sit up straight and type.
I can feel my abs punching my fat now just trying to make their debut. For real.
