After a great 3 mile run, I decided I better get my Jillian workout in before the day gets away from me. Level 3, here I come!
I followed Anita (the 'easy' one) and I didn't think it was too bad, but I noticed that there is quite a bit of difference between 'easy' and what Jillian's expecting. She kind of makes you feel like a cheater by following Anita but I told myself it was ok because I was just getting my feelers out for it. You definitely use Level 1's and Level 2's workouts to build up to this. It's no longer black and white, strength and cardio. Everything is mixed together.
Jillian also talks about her diet plan, which did NOT come with this DVD. She doesn't mention this until Level 3 and then says "With this 30 day shred DVD and my diet plan, you'll be shredded in no time." Well, I had expected to be shredded with just the exercises. The diet plan should have been mentioned before this. I wouldn't have followed it anyways, but it would have given me more realistic goals.
Tomorrow I'll get more organized and get the list of exercises going. 11 more days!
