30-Day Shred NSV

In keeping with my commitment to fit in my exercise at least four times during this crazy, busy week I decided to do the 30-Day Shred DVD at home this morning.  Besides noticing that my upper body is super weak I had a 1st time NSV during the workout.

For those that don't know  There is this cardio 2-minute interval where she does 30 seconds of jumping jacks and then 30 seconds of jump rope and repeats it.  I've never been able to do the jump rope after the jumping jacks, but today I did it!!! 

Instead of my normal jumping rope from one foot to the other, I was able to do the jump rope move lifting both feet up at the same time for the entire time.  This means I actually did the 2-minutes of cardio straight through, just as directed (without modifying).  

[adding another non-scale victory to my shelf]

I used to say that I wouldn't move on to level 2 in this DVD until I could do that move.  Well, I guess I can move on now if I want.  :)  Well, at least once my arms get a little stronger...*sheepish grin* 

See you tomorrow for (hopefully) more good news.


  1. Wow! I think you're doing great! It's been a long time since I could do what you're doing, but maybe it's time to start some moderate exercise. You're an inspiration!

  2. OMG that is great. I actually just started the Shred this week. I am on day 4 and yes the jumping rope is the hardest cardio. The killer for me in the bike crunches at the end. I am using this to get back into daily excersize and will plan to do each for 10 days straight. I am a bit fearful of level 2 as well. But man won't it feel great to have completed it. Yay for NSV's

  3. great job!!!! thats a huge nsv
