I pulled myself off the couch and headed to the gym that is maybe 1 mile away. As I was pulling out of my driveway, it started to sprinkle and then all of a sudden it was torrential down pours. I felt like I was underwater. I listened a little closer to the radio and they said that we would be getting huge hail and a huge thunderstorm. Do you think that would stop me from going to the gym? NO.
Well....YES. I couldn't find a parking spot. Let's rephrase that. The ones that were open were really REALLY far away and I had on a white (kinda already see through) shirt with a white tank top. Not good for torrential downpours. By the time I would have RUN to get into the gym I would have been soaked and my shoes would have squeaked on the treadmill for the 3 miles on my schedule for today.
I headed home and broke open Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. I have probably had this for over a year, but I opened it and popped it in. A 20 minute work out sounded excellent EXCEPT I didn't have any hand weights. To improvise I grabbed soup cans. Now, I am not an iron woman, but I can lift more than a soup can. Tomorrow I will go out any buy new hand weights so that I actually get the strength/tone benefit.
(This was when Jillian was telling me that I needed to not quit and suck up the 2 minutes of punching)
So, I did. Here is my little make-shift step up. My yoga mat came in handy.
When I was laying down on my mat I noticed how dusty my floor was under my couch, so I think after dinner I have a job to do. Clean and organize my house. Read 5 educational articles. Write 2 papers. Quit "vacationing" aka blogging and GET TO WORK!
Now, at least I did my 1st day of Level 1 the 30 Day Shred. I am well on my way to be shredded according to Jillian.
