I started Jillian Michael's DVD Extreme Shed and Shred. The DVD has 2- 35 minute workouts. I am doing Level 1 for the first 2 weeks and then "upgrading" to Level 2 for the last 2 weeks. (This is part of my December goals- you may remember). As always, Jillian is tough. Evie, my six year old, was randomly discussing fear the other day. She asked if everybody was afraid of something. I said, "Yes, I believe so." Lani, my 9 year old, asked what I was afraid of... After some hesitation, I revealed, "Jillian!" hee... I'm scared of Jillian in a good way. Paradoxically, I am addicted to her workouts. They are short, yet effective, which is just what I like and need.
I am still trucking along with the Mile a Day challenge. It take me about 15 minutes or so jog the mile (I am a very slow runner). I am considering bumping it to 2 miles mid month. We'll see...
Better eating and adding activity to my life have become hobbies. They don't feel like burdens anymore as they once did. They are now challenges I heartily accept. I struggle with things, obviously, but my mindset is progress and not perfection.
