What day is it?

So, I didn’t do the Shred yesterday.

Why?

  1. I figured that it was supposed to be Day 34, and any day that starts with a 3 is okay to take a break.
  2. My knees were killing me!  I don’t have knee problems!  I’d heard of other Shredheads having knee issues, and didn’t think it would happen to me.
  3. It did.
  4. I like making lists.
  5. Four is my favorite number, so I should have stopped there in the list.

Anyway, today, I thought I’d jump back into it.  Is today Day 34?  Or 35?  Eh…doesn’t matter.  Right?  The Perfectionist part of me really wants to know, but the Casual part says it doesn’t really matter.  Neither side has the energy to argue about it.  :)

I asked Claire which Level she wanted to do, and she told me Level 4.  There is no Level 4.  Thank goodness!

So, we decided since I’d done two days at Level 1 again and took a break that I could do Level 2 again.

You know that part in Level 2 where Jillian says, “Block it out” at the end?  Well, apparently I had.  (It’s okay.  As a former counselor, I would tell you that blocking things out is a coping mechanism and somewhat effective at times.)

I’d forgotten the oblique twists.  How can you forget the oblique twists?

Claire was doing them today and got herself spinning in a circle and then fell down.  She laughed and screamed, “My OH-BLEEK TRISTS just knocked me down!”  Had I been capable of laughing at that point, I would have.

You’d think that after 33+ days (there! that’s a good way to say it!), I’d have the energy to laugh in the middle of the workout.

I’d forgotten how wrung out it makes you feel.  I literally collapsed on the floor at the end.  Oh, Level 2, how I’ve missed you.  Jillian.  What have you done to me?  I willingly come back for more…almost every day…give or take a day past 33.  ;)
