30 Day Shred - or am I insane?


I am taking the challenge to do Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred work out. If you haven't heard of it, which there are people who haven't, it consists of 3 levels of circuit training workout. Each are about 20 minutes in length. You do 3 minutes strength, 2 minutes cardio, and 1 minute abs and then repeat. I've attempted this before but I figured if I publicly stated I was going to do this then maybe it would work out better for me and I wouldn't stop on day 5.
Some people do the program for 30 days straight 10 days for each level. I plan on doing it a bit differently; moving up in levels as I feel ready to. Hopefully every 10-14 days or so. I plan on taking a day or so off each week to rest. Plus I plan on continuing my daily 2 to 3 mile walks.
Monday was day one and I took both measurements and pictures. Nope, I am not posting them for you. I'm not brave to post my not so good looking wearing next to nothing pictures online. I might post some type of before and after pics, the pounds and the measurements of how many inches I lost. I don't have any sort of expectation and I just want to get healthier and look more toned.
Wish me luck and I hope I don't die. lol
I will keep you all updated weekly as I go.
