Today was a pretty full on day for me. Got up this morning with Mick as he had to go to work and all I wanted was a sleep in, but it just didn’t happen. I long for the day when I get to sleep in again, it hasn’t happened for so long. If it’s not Mick waking up for work, it’s Maximus meowing for breakfast or it’s just me not being able to sleep. Now normally when I used to get up early, I would wait for Mick to go to work then stick on a DVD and that would be my day. The only time I would get up off the couch was to take toilet breaks, and then I’d make a stop by the pantry on my way back and grab some chips or chocolate and munch on that while watching something on TV. Then I’d wonder how I managed to watch a whole season of Gossip girl in a weekend… Well that’s how!
That was the old me. The new me got up with Mick, and waited till he went to work and then I put on my Jillian Michaels 30 day shred DVD and died!!! Seriously, that woman makes you kick your own arse. I thought I worked hard when I did Zumba, but that DVD got me working harder than I’ve worked in ages. It was a really hard workout, a lot of getting up and down on and off the floor, but it was enjoyable all the same. I can’t say I love it as much as Zumba, but I definitely work harder doing that one than I do in Zumba.
So after that was all over and done with and my heart rate had gone back to normal I went to meet the lovely Miss A to do our time trial. I’m not going to give away what time we did it in, tell you that tomorrow with the rest of my fitness test results, but I’m happy to say that I beat my last time and am pretty pleased with it. So now I’m gearing up and getting ready for the official start on Monday. Would love to have a rest day tomorrow and just mooch all day, but alas, no exercise on Friday and little on Wednesday and Thursday means I still have to work my butt off tomorrow. I believe I will be doing that by completing stage 1 of the 30 day shred again. Maybe I’ll do it twice and really burn those extra calories.
