Shredding

So I bought the Jillian Michaels "The Shred" DVD last week. It arrived on Wednesday afternoon so I started the torture I mean workout, on Thursday morning.

Sweet Mercy. I have not experienced this type of pain since childbirth.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE it because it moves fast and is only 20 minutes. The girls laughed at me because I kept saying, it's only 20 minutes...I can do anything for 20 minutes!

It's been forever since I've done anything other than WALK, so I really am a beginner when it comes to this. My girls on the other hand...well...they are barely winded by the end of our workout and have asked to go on to level 2. They can go on, but I'll be on level 1 for the next oh...year!

Ya'll...Friday morning after we got done, I attempted to walk up the stairs to do school with the girls and I honestly sat down half-way up. WRONG THING TO DO. Getting up was harder than I thought it would be. Needless to say, I did not come downstairs for my second cup of coffee.

Chad had arranged for a babysitter on Friday night and told me to pick what we were doing...I had planned to do a picnic and walk at a local park. Can I just tell you the thought of walking up and down those hills made me light headed, so we went out to eat and then that boy made me walk through Target. He told me I would feel better if I kept moving. As much as I hate to say it, he was right. :)

We hit LifeWay and then he offered Starbucks. Sit down for this...I turned him down. I was SO tired and just wanted to get home and into my comfy pj's and take some Motrin! This getting old thing is hard!

So anyway...our sweet babysitter had taken the girls to a play and we beat them home!! Can you believe that???

I'm joining one of my favorite authors Vicki on this journey to Shred...I'm looking forward to seeing some results!! If I live through it. ;)

I posted over at the Freedoms Call blog today...I would love for you to go check it out.

LOL... I'm just jumping back on the exercise bandwagon now. I went out for a run today, but... living in NH where we have nothing but HILLS, I ended up walking more than I ran. I got a few good sprints in, but I was overestimated my abilities. That's ok... one step at a time, right? :) Sounds like a nice date in spite of not strolling in the park. I'd take Lifeway over that any day! ROFL

Yikes!!! Sounds scary to me. I'm going to settle for lifting the diet coke to my lips again and again.
