So, my something new- last week I ordered Jillian Michaels Body Revolution. This is a 13 week program program, 3 different phases. My set of DVDs came today. Since I like to start things on Mondays, I figured why not? We got home from baseball, got the kiddos showered and in bed and I changed into my workout clothes before I could change my mind. The first week there is a kick-start your metabolism portion that involves doing workout 1, week 1 and then cardio 1. Each DVD workout is a little less than 30 minutes long. Workout 1 included triceps, chest, abs and quads. Thankfully I won't be working on those muscle groups tomorrow, it was rough! Cardio 1 was a bit exhausting. I managed to keep moving the whole time, though there were periods of time where I had to just run in place because I couldn't keep up with the exercise.
Overall, I was really impressed. I felt like I got a great workout in, I didn't get bored, and it felt like just the right amount of time for me. I'm looking forward to the next session tomorrow. On Friday when I did my weigh-in, I also took my measurements. I am really looking forward to seeing the results from adding this to my current running plan.
