The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC – Eating Right Because Our Jeans Are Too Tight


Today is the first day of our EA Sports Active 30 Day Challenge for the Wii!  Are you ready?

I popped in the disc this morning after I took my son to school.  I set my daughter, Emma (A.K.A. My Shadow), up with her own little set of resistance cables and told her she could stand next to me and do the exercises.

You’d think I had told her she was winning a lifetime supply of rainbows and stuffed animals.  She was so excited.

I had started the 30 Day Challenge before, but hadn’t completed it.  I went ahead and deleted my old data and started the challenge over.  I couldn’t remember how long the workouts were, so I opted for the medium level.

Maybe it’s corny…maybe it’s dumb.  But I really love when that little onscreen trainer tells me that I am poetry in motion.  I love how stinkin’ positive she is all the time.

Three things I noticed:

  1. Sports bras are not just for running.  I need to strap the girls in a little better next time.
  2. Squats are the devil.
  3. Inline skating is the spawn of the devil. (Emma may have said “Mommy, why do you keep grunting?”)

I finished up the medium intensity in a little less than 20 minutes.  I am now a sweaty mess. Emma may have said “Ewww!  Don’t hug me!”

And for the first time in a long time, I’m looking forward to working out tomorrow! I’ll probably even go crazy and take it up to HIGH INTENSITY!  Look out!

How’d you guys do on your first day?  Easier than you expected?  Harder than you expected?  Let us know how it went!
