Speaking of this not being for beginners, anyone else get interesting comments from people about the workouts? I find that there are people out there who assume this must be easy or beginner because I'm doing it. Before I started, I had a guy from school warn me not to do it because he couldn't make it through Ab Ripper X. Ummmm, what makes you think I can't do this just because you're out of shape? Or people who don't workout at all who say they're going to do it too and then you have to explain that this is not something you go into lightly. That doesn't always go over well!
Now I'm not saying that I'm this incredibly physical specimen or that I'm an amazing workout person. I think I'm pretty normal, and I absolutely love working out, so this is something I can focus on and work through. It's great! I'm already getting excited for my round 2 this fall. I'm going to get some heavier weights because mine are too light now for some of the exercises. I think I'll really be able to focus and kick it up a notch the second time around!
