I mentioned before that I’m attempting hard core workouts at home since I don’t have access to a gym. I really wanted to order the Intensity dvds but unfortunately, didn’t have a couple hundred bucks to spare so I bought a Jillian Michael’s dvd instead: Ripped in 30. I have another one of her dvds and it is hard so I knew Jillian wouldn’t disappoint. She’s pretty hard core…just how I like ’em!
I tried the Ripped in 30 a couple times before heading to Phoenix and it is hard. It’s basically 4 weeks of high intensity circuits. She does 3 minutes of strength exercises, 2 minutes of cardio, then one minute of abs. Each week is a different set of exercises so it gets harder the closer you get to 4 weeks.
That Jillian is pretty intense! I’m starting my first day of thirty today! All I will say is, I’m currently 118 pounds and my jeans are pretty tight. My weight doesn’t necessarily bother me since I know muscle weighs more than fat, but my clothes being tight does concern me. So, hopefully at the end of 30 days my jeans will fit like they should!
I thought about before and after pictures but honestly, I have zero desire to show myself half naked on the internet. Maybe I’ll just show an after picture if I look amazing :).
Anyway, wish me luck on day 1!
In other news, Happy Halloween! Halloween is probably my second favorite holiday (yes, Christmas is first). I usually dress up every year because…well it’s really fun. This year I’m not basically because I have nowhere to wear a costume. My favorite costumes I’ve worn though have to be a pumpkin-I rented a pumpkin costume so it was huge! It was pretty much amazing…I wish I had a picture! My second favorite is a cow..somehow that costume disappeared during college… here are a couple other goodies:
Cleopatra! I have this one here…maybe I’ll throw it on tonight…
Does anyone else think it’s annoying that as a girl, you can only find sleazy Halloween costumes? Unless you rent of course..but it’s kind of ridiculous! One of these years I’m going as a zombie with blood and guts all over me…I think it would be funny in a sea of hookers.
Anyway, Happy Halloween everyone!! I hope you get tons of candy…even if you are technically an adult! 🙂
