James and I have been keeping physically fit off and on. Usually we turn to P90X or a quick jog at the gym or around Laie. However, we've both been slacking BIG TIME. Also, I've realized how weak I still am, 6 months after giving birth. Yes the weight is still coming off slowly, but I feel its more than just weight loss. There are tons of women around me who get stick thin from breastfeeding, but I don't just want to become skinny....but strong, toned. I want my strength back in my arms, abs and legs.
As you can tell, I never have any free time unless it's the weekends or a few minutes in between running around. So Jillian Michael's Ripped in 30 dvd is PERFECT for my busy schedule. An intense 24-minute workout mixing cardio, strength and abs.
My EVERYTHING and EVERYWHERE is sore. I haven't felt this 'after-workout-pain' since hmmm...Living Legends? Or an intense tahiti burnout for Night Show?
I went to class, then work, then class...then popped in this dvd for week one....shower, then back to work. I had to help with an even tonight and I know I probably looked dumb trying not to bend my legs as I walked. They were so sore. Anyways, like Jillian said on the dvd, "If 400lb people can do this, than you can too". Omg I was dying....but it'll all pay off right?
Look at this interesting picture:

See what I mean?
Muscle weighs more than fat
We shouldn't stress over a number
but seek to be fit and healthy
