So I did what I blogged about and restarted Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. Today was day 7. I missed one day because of my crazy schedule but overall I feel that I am doing well. I've been a bit freaked because I actually GAINED 3 pounds. I googled it and it seems as if I am retaining water due to my new workout regime. I was CRAZY SORE for the 1st week so I know that I am doing something right. Today was MUCH easier and I'm hardly sore. Thinking that I will jump up to level 2 this week. The first time I did this DVD I did each level for almost a month... so at least I feel progress much faster. I can feel my arms and butt toning so that makes me feel better. It is funny that I think that I am "somewhat in shape" yet doing this has made me feel 70 years old!
I took before pics when I started this journey and I am hoping to post them soon... once I hit my goal. I just took a peek at them and feel VERY proud. Not quite proud enough to post.... but proud to say the least. I know that I am close and can't wait to get there.
The most recent part of this trip into health was visiting a Naturopathic Doctor. A close friend told me about it and my curiosity was piqued. I went for several reasons. I wanted to see what was done, how I felt and more so to know if there were any recommendations. I feel the best I have felt in my life and I would like to keep it that way.
This visit was like no other. It was very eye opening and educational. I like to think that I am a pretty smart cookie, and a damn good nurse to boot. I was even prepared by my friend yet I was blown away. I felt energized yet relaxed after my visit. I got fabulous information that I plan to incorporate into my everyday routine. I will be back. I won't go into any detail because some would think it was different and unmusical but I highly suggest it if you have an open mind and want to give it a try.
Okay... gonna go to bed and get that MUCH needed rest! Night!
