Check-In: Jillian Michaels Body Revolution and Body Shred

Hey, all! I got great advice on my questions about Body Revolution and Body Shred, and my copy of BR came today so I immediately got down to business!

I'm going to go ahead and do the whole 90 days mostly as prescribed (workouts only, not the d*et stuff), and each week I'm going to increase the weights I'm using unless it proves too difficult. This week I'm taking it very light and using 1, 2, and 3 lbs., and I'll increase to 2, 3, and 4 lbs. next week.

I may do some active recovery or other workout on rest days (or yoga or something), and since I didn't start on a Monday but a Saturday, I'm just checking workouts off in the booklet as I complete them.

Today was Phase 1, Workout 1, and it was all very familiar and pretty easy, although I honestly cannot do pushups even off my knees and tend to use a "box" style that was shown in an old FIRM video and which Jillian explicitly says not to do here but oh well. Otherwise, I didn't really have to modify much of anything, which was a relief. It was kind of nice to see all of her older video backgrounders together in the same video. The set is not that great, IMHO, but she is more motivating than meanspirited here, which I appreciate.

All in all a VERY solid 32-minute workout that burned 187 calories for me and got my heartrate up to my max without feeling like I was going to die.

ETA: The plan for this check-in is to get through the 90 days of Body Revolution and then move on to the 60 days of Body Shred. I actually have just over 20 "pandemic pounds" I'm trying to lose, so I'm hoping this jump starts me!
