First day of the 30 day shred. Not going to lie, it kicked my ass.
I had to pause the dvd several times, once because someone rang the doorbell, and twice to desperately gulp down water and catch my breath because OH MY GOD I'M DYING. My heart was racing all through cardio, which I guess is the point, but it was super uncomfortable. I think the jumping jacks were the worst, simply because I have huge boobs and jumping isn't very pleasant, even with them strapped into a sports bra. The end bicycle crunch was also a killer. I want to get my mom in on it, since she is also trying to lose weight, but she's kind of lazy. I don't think she could get through the video without tons of pausing.
After, I took a cold, cold shower and marveled as my legs quaked. Maybe one of the best showers I've ever taken in my life. When I submerged my face it was like Jesus materialized behind me and whispered into my ear, told me he spends all his days in heaven smoking pot and making hardcore gay fetish porn. It was that sweet.
I'm quite proud of myself, now that I'm not sweaty and my heart isn't beating a hundred miles per hour. I did the whole thing! With limited stopping! The shower made me feel significantly better, so right now the plan is to do the shred before class. This means waking up 20 minutes earlier, which makes me sadface, but whatever. I'll get over it.
Also, I dressed my dog up like a turtle.
He was not as excited about it as I was.( There's words about zombies under here. )
