After reading JG's posts about the 30 day shred over at Stuff Jewish Girls Like, I was inspired to give it a try myself. I'm 4 days into level 2 and man oh man, it's tough. Level 1 was definitely challenging, but do-able. The first couple of days were hard (holy soreness!), but I made it through the rest of it fairly easily. I started level 2 on Sunday and it is so much harder than level 1 (I'm kind of scared to see what level 3 is all about). Ben is doing it with me and after the workout on Sunday, we contemplated going back to level 1 for a few more days. We ended up deciding to stick with level 2, and I'm glad we did. It is so hard, but it feels great! I love that the workout is only 20-25 minutes, but is seriously intense (as in lots of sweat and sore muscles), and effective. I am starting to feel stronger and I can see a little bit of definition in my arms!
In other news, I was a bit let down by the "huge" anthro tag sale. Nothing on my wishlist even made it to sale. When I woke up on Tuesday, the first thing I did was check my wishlist. Nothing was different. I thought maybe I had made a mistake (wrong day?). I did end up going by my local store to see if the in-store sale was any better. I tried on the Sugar Work skirt, even though I had never paid much attention to it previously. I'm so glad I did because I love it! It is a beautiful skirt, it fits nicely and is very flattering, and it has pockets!
I love the skirt so much, I just had to wear it yesterday! I rode my bike to the park to meet up with Ben after work yesterday. It was a gorgeous day.
