Wishing to Be Shredded!



Officially, supposedly, my journey to being SHREDDED slash RIPPED would have begun on New Year's Day.  Yup, you know, the day everybody starts to resolve to be better, undo bad habits, conquer old enemies, make yourself generally better than you were the other year.

So, there I was, slaving myself at the treadmill, a veteran of Jillian Michael's 30-Day Shred Level 1 (I seem to be stuck at Level 1.  Been doing it off and on since November), proclaiming (to myself lang naman shhh...) that I would be officially shredded, pounds off, no ifs,no buts, on the second week of March (I know I have saved the date somewhere on my cellphone). But then, as always when I try committing to something (generally committing to working out), some things come up, like, you know, New Year's Eve leftovers, books to read, movies to watch, that I had to put off, day after every single day my "shredded" dream.

So, today, uh, tomorrow, on Sunday, January 6, 2013, I will be re-starting my 4 K treadmill run again and alternate it with Jillian Michael's "30 Day Shred"  with the intense hope that I can live by protein and not by bread alone (WHA!).  Maybe, I will get a sense of accountability to myself if I start to document how badly I am doing (another WHA in Miriam Defensor's voice).

I will be writing about Jillian Michael's "30 Day Shred" later, which is so last, last season by the way, (this was released 2008).  It is my fave workout video among all others she has released though because it is the easiest (although I won't say it is easy, because she did say in this video -"by now, your heart is thumping, you feel like you are going to die..." Come on, she is tough! She is one of The Biggest Loser's trainors!), and I love doing burpees!

  3. I guess getting shredded is a common goal for most of us because of the holiday season last month. I've been jogging every afternoon also hoping that I could burn those fats I gained during the holiday. ^^
