this mornining i knocked out day 20 of Jillian Michael's infamous Shred workout. Day Twenty. twenty days of getting up 45 minutes earlier than usual, twenty days of jumping jacks in a darkened house, twenty days of sniffling and not-so-silently cursing the trainer from hell.
and... twenty days of feeling better than i have in YEARS!!
i didn't really intend to blog about this particular journey of mine, but five minute friday seems to be the perfect platform this little shout out to the person who has been fueling my resolution to get more fit. tomorrow morning, i will attempt Level 3 (i purposefully haven't peeked at it yet... i'm pretty sure that would be my downfall.) and then i will go for a run, because, who knew? the stronger my legs and core become, the more i am enjoying running again!
i'm also counting calories and drinking a gazillion ounces of water every day. and i'll admit, i'd really like to have that "Biggest Loser" breakthrough moment on the scale. i'm still waiting... but in the meantime: see you tomorrow, Jillian!
