working out

Upcoming events:
April 30: final measurements and weigh in

scheduled workout (april 17): 30 day shred level 3, dance central 3 and walk it out
actual workout: 30 day shred level 3, dance central 3 and walk it out. 

(can you see miss pepper in the pic?  she was petting my hand while i was snapping a pic). 
i feel like i should have a ticker for how many minutes i worked out for the month of april and how many calories ive burned.  hmm, maybe ill do that later today.

motivation percentage: 100% today is a scheduled day off, i have a big goal of scrubbing the fridge!!! (i know that is CRAZY, actually i saw that something has spilled down the back of it-gross, i will clean that tonight).
i had a comment left about not being able to find the 30 day shred, i want to say it is an older jillian michaels DVD.  i got mine from kmart for 6.99 a few years ago.  i have another jillian michaels DVD
called Extreme shed and shred, i cannot even get through it.  it is a ton of jumping and leaping.  besides the fact that i dont want to kill my knees i dont think my floor boards of my old house can handle me jumping around so much.  so my suggestion is to be careful with her stuff. 
i find the 30 day shred not to be TOO difficult but challenging enough to actually get you some results (as in muscle tone you can see).   i use 6 lb weights.
i probably burn somewhere between 200 and 260 calories per each session, i burn the most with level 1 (seems the jumping jacks make my heart rate sky rocket and you do them several times).  OH i just remembered i heard you can get level 1 on youtube for free. 
last night i got two achievements with my dance central 3. both happened during the macerna story part.  so i forgot to look them up.  for some reason that song reminds me of a summer when i was  a kid, a summer where my brother was "away" (he was sent upstate) and it was just me and my youngest brother (and my dad of course) and it was an easy summer.  i guess all of my childhood issues with anxiety were due to my brother that was sent away.
