30 Day Shred

Ugh, so I've joined the masses and started doing Jillian Michael's 30 day shred. Thing is, I don't think it's super good for my health. I started doing level 1 last week. I only had 15 pound weights, which were not good. Too heavy. So then I started using containers of soy milk (32 oz. so 2 pounds each). Better, but still, the weirdest thing happened... from all the up and down, I wound up getting vertigo. I was totally dizzy, but it lasted for days. Finally, I started again today and when I was doing the jumping rope, i literally heard my knees popping and snapping. Very annoying. So I stopped. I wanted to get through 30 days, but I think it might be a hazardous workout, at least for my body it is. I don't want to ruin my knees doing a workout like this.

Not every workout is suitable for every person. I know I couldn't do a lot of those types of "typical" things because my knees just can't support that type of pounding. She should have a low impact version!!

She totally should. I was surprised because I've been running for a long time, but this cd seems weird.
