Wow. Just wow. I’ve been delinquent on moving up to level two. I should have done it a few days ago…or something, but, I kept sticking with level one, because, well, I feel good when I do it. It doesn’t really hurt, even though I can tell I’m getting a good exercise. It’s the friendly little devil I know. But, Myobi was raving about level two to me – how she thought she was going to die and that she didn’t know level one had missed any muscles, so, I decided I had to see what it’s all about.
You know that saying, ‘curiosity killed the cat,’ yeah, it’s a propo. I watched it last night, just to get a feel and to try some of the moves and check out the modifications. I was actually very encouraged. I was able to do everything and it didn’t look too scary.
Looks are so deceiving.
Let’s just say that I have not sweat that much, ever. Now I know that girl’s (especially countesses) are just supposed to glow, well, I was pouring buckets of sweat. And I thought that I might die a couple of times – in a good way. I was surprised by how few breaks that I needed – though I did take advantage of the rest seconds at the end of each circuit to grab water. I needed it.
I feel fabulous for all of it though. If you’re just starting out – keep going. Don’t stop. This program will make you stronger than you ever thought possible. Since I quit doing martial arts in college due to injury risks and being a pianist, I have been searching for a program that would let me exercise quickly and efficiently. I’ve finally found it. Even if it wants to kill me.
