A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about Jillian Michaels kicking my ass. Remember?

Well, she still is! I’ve just finished Day 6 of her Level 2 and, while I can tell I’m making progress, it’s clear that this woman knows what she’s doing! My body is adjusting to her maddening workouts. I don’t want to say “it’s getting easier”, because the word “easy” really should not be used in reference to this DVD. I know I said Level 1 was kind of easy, but that was different!

Certain exercises or cardio bursts, that I couldn’t complete in the first few days, I now can. Progress! I still finish each workout breathless. I love that feeling! I can’t imagine what I’m going to feel like when I get to Level 3!

I’m going to do Level 2 for one more week (3 more days since I only do “30 Day Shred” M-W-F) and see how I feel (look?). I love how challenging this workout is! I’ve only been doing it for a few weeks and I can see results in my abs and arms. I’m tall and thin, and the only place I have any fat is my midsection. However, if you ask my mother about that, she’d say “Fat?! What fat!?! You wear a size 5!” What she doesn’t understand is that I once had a 6-pack! So, anything other than a completely flat stomach is, to me, due to fat. I’m seeing definition that I haven’t seen there in a while. I think my body agrees with this type of interval/circuit training. I never thought I’d be able to get any results from a 20 minute workout, but I guess it’s all about intensity!
