Jillian Michaels - 30 Day Shred

I really felt like I was going to die but I made it through it. Lots of modifications like wall push ups and jumping jacks I bounced from one leg to the other. I didn't use any hand weights because my 5 lb ones were too heavy for me the time before that I've tried this workout. I looked at Walmart yesterday for some new ones but couldn't decide between a 1 lb or a 2 lb. They were $7 for a pair of walking weights and I don't have the money right now so I figured I'd look online first. Well after working out without weights I think the 1 lbs will be just fine for now. I can't believe how out of shape my arms really are. Yikes!

My arms are shaking so bad right now even typing this is an effort. I don't know if I'll be able to walk tomorrow much less another workout. It took me about 4 hours to work up the motivation to do this workout and I'm really hoping it will get easier and easier to the point I just wake up and do it. Now how do I get my honey out of the house on his days off. I'm kind of ashamed at my attempt at a jumping jack. He's very into fitness and completely supports my efforts so it probably won't be a problem and maybe one day I'll be comfortable with him even joining me.

Do you think going from couch to 30 Day Shred maybe too much? I want to maybe try going every other day but also figure that's my lazy side of me trying to negotiate.

I love all Jillian Michael's workouts! I've got the Ripped in 30, and it rocks. It's tough to keep up with doing it every day, but when I need that extra workout, it's great. =)
