A little bit of death

I’m officially in day 2 after my first go at the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD.
I hate the second day.
First day after you feel so great, and just a little sore. The next day you think your limbs have been infested with the plague or worse. At least I do. Especially today.
I feel midly ridiculous endorsing this with rave reviews considering how biased I am. I love watching the Biggest Loser & I appreciate Jillian’s approach to weight loss from dealing with both the emotional issues behind bad habits, and the habits themselves.
All that said, I think that is the right way to try to lose weight. I’ve never heard someone who enjoys losing a bunch of weight and then putting it back on again because they keep going back to the cookie dough and nacho cheese when they’re stessed out or depressed.
The dress I bought is the size I was when I started college. Daunting as that may sound, it’s only 2 sizes smaller than I am now. And getting down 2 sizes over the summer with calorie counting & exercise has me pretty pumped about how attainable this goal really is.
Well “pumped” considering how sore I am today.
Seriously, ouch.
