I Thought I Was Going To Die...

Well by the headline of today's blog you may think I had a usual near death experience, such as almost getting hit by a bus or falling off a ladder or being bucked off by a horse.  Well I am not referring to any of those things- my near death experience was.... the Jillian Michael's 30-Day Shred DVD.  Goodness gracious!  The woman was a nazi.  I thought it was never going to end- I suspect her voice will haunt me in my dreams :]  "strength, cardio, abs, strength, cardio, abs" over and over and over!  I knew it was going to be bad when I went to the bookstore to pick up the DVD... I asked a lady for help, because I couldn't find it and when I told her what I was looking for she said "Ohhh dear.. I love Jillian, but she is evil!" 

Don't Let The Smile Fool You! ;]

On the flip side- I felt incredible afterward.  I was rejuvenated & actually had more energy when I was finished- enough that I then worked out on the treadmill.  I can't say I necessarily look forward to the next 29 days, but I know it will be well worth it! :]  Thanks Syl!
