Well we’re over the halfway mark now! On the “downhill” right? Right? Somehow, I don’t think so. Jilly – I can call her Jilly now that we’re so close and she’s been kickin my butt for 17 days now, right? – my pal Jilly is still laying on the torture as only a good trainer can. As things get easier, I step it up in intensity or weights, so I have a feeling there’s not really any “downhill” to this! ;0)

Wondering about Day 17? Here it is!

The rundown for Day 17:

Activity: The 30 Day Shred, Level 1 – stepped up to 2lb weights for the entire workout! Wahoo!
Activity Length: 25 minutes-ish
Difficulty: Still hard! I followed “her girl Nat” the whole time (except for the pushups) and finished most everything (except those darn “jumpropes” and bicycle crunches – but I ALMOST did all the b. crunches! Getting closer!) The 2lb weights definitely made a difference. Hard to believe a half pound more in each hand could be that noticeable…
How I feel: Tired but in a good way. Drank lots and lots of water when I was done!
Tomorrow: Bring it on, Jilly!!
