I am SORE this morning! I think it’s a combination of the 12 mile run on Sunday and the Level 3 Shred workout I did yesterday. I love being sore. It gives me the feeling like I really did something and challenged my body to work areas I don’t normally work. I love waking up in the morning and feeling that. Anyone else do Level 3 of the Shred? Jillian is literally out of her mind. The mountain climbers, and the planks where you have the weights and do the arm pull-ups. Not to mention all the plyometrics she adds to everything. The jumping lunges and the rock star kicks. I love the idea of the plyometrics, and how the jumping movements are used to increase the speed or force of muscular contractions. But my legs hurt today!
Speaking of Jillian’s, another one I wanted to mention was the new Bachelorette, Jillian Harris. I always get sucked into these reality television shows. But at least its mindless television in the evening, which is what I enjoy. I love the new Jillian. I think the previous Bachelor, Jason really screwed her (AND Melissa- but she rocks it out on Dancing with the Stars!) I just want to know how she manages to remember all 30 of the eligible men’s names! Does she have a wire in her ear and someone whispering them to her? Because when she does her rose ceremony after meeting 30 dudes in 30 minutes, there is no way she can remember! Also, did anyone see the previews for the season? Apparently 3 of the dudes have girlfriends?! Shouldn’t they check on that stuff, or are they just throwing them in there for the drama. Sucks for Jillian if its for the drama (which it probably is!) Either way, it looks like it’s going to be a fairly good season, and basically what I will be doing on Monday for the next few months.
