Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred: week 1

I may be the last person on the planet to have tried and reviewed Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, but I'm doing it anyway. I'll be chronicling this for you got it, thirty days! The workouts consists of 3 mins strength, 2 mins cardio, 1 min ab intervals. Abs are the least enjoyable. I've tried and failed my own ab program before. But I need to do something. Since my mileage has been so drastically reduced, my pants and jeans are fitting a little tight and I can't wait to race home from work and throw on my sweats lately. Jillian recommends one 20 minute workout each day. My plan is to do 20 minutes three to four days a week while continuing to increase my mileage with runs one to two times per week. The workout has three levels. As you feel you've mastered one level, you progress to the next. It's completely up to you. I've started at level one. It was a moderately challenging, but I think as I get back into the cardio groove, I'll master level one quickly. I think I've gained about 7 pounds since I injured myself in August. My goal is to lose ten pounds by mid January. Since average weight loss is 1 -2 pounds per week, I think my goal is realistic. It's getting cooler by the day here, so in addition to learning about fun new hair care products for the winter, I'm learning how to workout at indoors with a DVD!
