We Meet Again, Jillian

Now that I'm able to exercise again, I'm eager to start toning my muscles back to pre-baby form. I prefer to run, but my left knee has been bothering me.  It's a total mystery since I haven't exercised at all for so long I don't know why it could possible be hurting.  I just hope it feels better soon so I can get back to running.  I really, really miss it!  And the weather has been so nice I would love to go for a good run out there.

I did the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred video after Henry was born and liked it.  I did level 1 today and it kicked my butt.  The cardio isn't real intense, but the strength portion is hard.  How is it that I can hold Oliver in one arm while I vacuume the entire house, yet it burns like mad when I do shoulder press?  It felt good to get my heart rate up and sweat a little.  Exercising really is a favorite hobby of mine so I'm really looking forward to working back up to being fit again.
