My Fitness Regiment

Jillian Michaels Body Revolution

I am currently doing round 2 of Jillian Michael's 90 day program and I'm getting slimming results! I find that I often fall off the bandwagon and that can get really frustrating. It takes a while to build up my endurance and conditioning back to the level I need to be at in order to continue the exercises it.

Weeks 1 - 4:

I am now on weeks 5 &6: 

I purchased my equipment from Canadian Tire, including weights, resistance band and a yoga mat which is all you really need.

Something New: Dragonboating

There are five "trial practices" for a dragonboating team next summer. At which point I can get the opportunity to try out, and if I make it I'll be joining a dragonboating team for next year. To be honest, the thought of being on a rigorous training schedule weekly and keeping up my level of fitness is a GREAT motivator for staying in shape.

In addition there is team bonding, and an opportunity to meet new people which has been on my to do list for 2013.  Some of the training is supposed to be outside (we're taking a run in the cold). I'm not much of a runner, and I'm terrified of cold. 

I'll be going to my first training session this Sunday. I am nervous but excited to try something new!
