Dear Body,   Why must you fail me on the day BEFORE weigh-in?  I had plans of exercising TWICE today- once with shredding and then another 30 minutes cardio.  You have been great to me during ALL the pounding from shredding- the jumping, the lunging, the planking, the squat jumping- all of it.  You … [Read more…]

Today was Shred Day Whatever.  I don’t even know what Day today was. My heart just wasn’t into it today.  I am ready to take a break from shredding.  I will finish my 30 days but then will move to something else for a short while.  Or maybe not. I am having a hard time today.  Not with shredding as … [Read more…]

ALTHOUGH, I … [Read more…]

I would like you, my darling 5 yr old, to STOP talking to me while I exercise. Today was Day 18 of SHREDDING. I have to be honest with you that today, TODAY, I had a hard time motivating myself to actually don my exercise clothes and well, exercise.  I procrastinated as best as I could, coming up … [Read more…]

Just a quick pop-in. Did Shredding Day 14 this morning. Better than yesterday. Still hurts like a mother-trucker. My quads are sore, sore, sore and it hurts to go up and down the stairs. I sweated like a mother-trucker. My arms hurt. My legs hurt. My abs hurt. Thank you Jillian. I’ll be turning you … [Read more…]

Today, I thought I was going to die. Or at least lay down on the floor and go to sleep. For me, today (Day 13, I think) was the most difficult day. My muscles are sore and tired. My body is tired. My eyes are tired. I slept 8-9 hours last night. But I am physically exhausted. What didn’t help … [Read more…]

A size 16 at one place might not be the same at a different place.  You go to one clothing store only to HAVE to squeeze in the 16’s, but then you trot to the next clothing store only to be a Size 14.  It can make shopping for yourself a living hell, especially when you have no desire to be a 16 and … [Read more…]

I just finished doing the 10-minute Super Hula. Wowza. That’s a lot of hula-ing. I better have killer abs after this. Anyway, here is my score today (not bad for my first time!): … [Read more…]
