Question about the 30 Day Shred

My son and his girlfriend have joined me in exercising to Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred. But, my son refused to workout with me again last night. This is how it went …

Son – I was taught in weight lifting not to use weights on the same muscle groups everyday

Me – I know, I was always told that, too. But, I had also heard somewhere that it was ok to do the 30 day shred  everyday because you are only using small weights.

Son – That’s a bunch of BS. If your muscles have pain … and mine have pain, (pointing to the flabby area we get in front of our armpits, cannot think of what the correct name for that area is?) So my muscles have torn and today they are repairing themselves.

Me – Well, you can exercise without the weights today.

Son – Yes, I guess I could do that.

As you can see, I put “somewhere” in italics. That’s because I have no idea where I read or heard that from. Does Jillian say it on the video? Did I read it in a blog? Hmm!?! So, I again ask for input. You do not have to be a medical expert. I am just curious what you think, how you are doing the Shred, etc?

As for my thoughts on advancing to level 2 or staying on level 1 a while … after viewing the video as suggested, I am opting to stay on level 1 a few more days. I can feel myself getting better at each and every exercise and taking fewer breaks. But, I still struggle on some and I am still doing girly push ups. These next few days I am going to really push myself to move forward to better prepare myself for level 2.

Totally off the subject but definitely in my thoughts today. Has anyone seen “An American Crime?” I had never heard of Sylvia Liken or Gertrude. My son’s girlfriend bought the movie and we watched it last night. When it was over, I was in shock over her mistreatment by so many and how the circumstances were overlooked by people both young and old. Then I have to remind myself of what time period it was and how things were different then. The movie left me wanting to know the real story, so I spent much time last night scouring internet articles. I saw that there were other movies made like “The Girl Next Door.”  And several books based off of Sylvia’s story. Have you seen them or read them and would you recommend them?


About nonnymoose2014

I have recently retired from the healthcare field, nursing. As I try to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, this seemed like the perfect time to try my hand at blogging again. In the past, my success (or lack thereof) I believe hinged on my fear of revealing too much about myself. I have a desire to “put it all out there” BUT I want to do it on my own terms … anonymously! Thus came Nonny Moose.
