The Coach's Widow Workout

worRecently I hung out with a girlfriend who has transformed her body! She has lost a lot of weight and more importantly feels great! She let me in on what began her transformation. Her enthusiasm encouraged me to begin a new workout regimen. I'm calling it:

"The Coach's Widow Workout!"

I can't take credit for this workout though. It is a workout video by the meanest trainer in television. Jillian Michaels.

I've developed a new love/hate relationship with her! :)
But before I tell you about the workout, I have to show off my workout kicks!

Coach got me these shoes at the end of football season as a thank you! Coaches get all sorts of shoes and awesome sports outfits each season, and I was feeling deprived :)

These are Nike ID!!! You can look up the website to customize your own tennis shoes! I'm pretty sure no one will ever steal my shoes since they have my name on them, not that anyone could handle the stench of
my tennis shoes (I know... too much information hehee)

(I liked how this North Face hoodie matched my shoes!)
This was my end of basketball season gift. I know I'm a little spoiled,
but c'mon three kids later, I gotta get something fun :) Plus,
I would definitely not ever spend more than a few dollars on myself,
so Coach thinks it is fun to do it every once in a while.

Back to my new workout!!! I have started the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. I am now on day 3 and have not felt more sore in my life. It includes 3 different workouts that you work your way up to. I have decided to do 10 days on level 1, 10 on level 2, and 10 on level 3. She does not specify you have to do this, but if I set it, I know I have to do it. Each level increases in intensity and includes strengths, cardio, and abs. All three of which I need!

I am partially telling you about my workout to inform you of how exciting and great this video is, but also so that I am accountable!!!! I've decided to be 100% committed to completing the 30 days. So, definitely ask me how it's going, and ask me any questions about the workout if you are interested. It's pretty intense, but for some of us who are going on a cruise this summer (it's me it's me!!!), it is necessary for bathing suit purposes!!!! By the way, if you are interested in buying the video it is approximately $8 at Wal-Mart.

Wish me luck! P.S., I would also like to say I now feel amazingly sorry for the people on the biggest loser!!! (I already felt sorry for them, but now I empathize a little) If I scream at her on the screen, I can only imagine how they feel during their workouts. XoXo Biggest Losers!!!
