Hey guys! Look what I bought!
I am literally super excited to start using these things. I've always loved Jillian Michaels, ever since I first saw her on the Biggest Loser so many years ago. She's just so passionate about helping people lose weight (and insanely tough on people to get results). Her and Cassey from Blogilates have to be my favorite fitness instructors of all time. I was actually doing a lot of Cassey's videos for a while, but since she's on Youtube, I could only do it in front of my laptop, and it was getting pretty uncomfortable trying to crane my neck to see what she was doing while trying to keep up.
So when I heard about Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred, I decided I needed to give it a try. I read a ton of success stories from places like MyFitnessPal and SparkPeople, and it was motivational enough that I decided I could give it a try. The video is pretty cheap at Walmart (less than ten dollars) and the 3lb weights were a little under four dollar each. So in total, not too bad.
I plan to start the video tomorrow and use it everyday for the next 30 days (while maybe throwing in some blogilates as well!) and I'm going to do my best to eat better.
Not tonight though! Tonight, I'm indulging in some delicious brownies with vanilla ice cream. A great start to my weightloss? No. But I'll do better in the coming weeks. I'm hoping to lose in total 20 lbs. I lost 16 lbs around this time last year with some serious hours dedicated to a video game called Dance Central 2. Then I got a new job and just stopped caring about my health since my work was stressing me out. But now it's back to getting fit and healthy.
I hope to reach a low, healthy weight by the anime convention I'm going to this summer, which takes place at the end of July. So plenty of time to get in shape!
I'll keep you guys updated once a week (maybe little updates more often) as to how it's going. Telling you guys is going to be what helps keeps me motivated! I want to show you guys Before/After pictures that I can be proud of!
Wish me luck! (Now I'm off to enjoy some yummy brownies and build a farm in Minecraft. The hard work starts tomorrow!)
Until Next Time,
Bye Lovelies! ♥
