I am no Wuss

But man alive do I hurt. Over at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans, we are Shredding. Yes, you heard me right, shredding. That is what it feels like too. I am shredding my muscles...but really I think it's supposed to be that I am shredding the fat. Man alive, it hurts.

Jeremy and I started on Monday night. We get the kids to bed and then it's time to SHRED. It sounds easy enough. 20 Minutes. No biggie, right? You do 3 circuits that consist of 3 minutes strength, 2 minutes cardio and 1 minute abs. No big deal, sounds relatively easy. HA! That's what they want you to think. But really Jillian Michaels is the DEVIL. It is hard. Even my skinny fit husband is having to work really hard with this.

But, it is SO worth it. I will be fit and not feel like a big blob at the pool with my kids this summer. Jillian is a bit crazy, but WAY motivating. She makes me laugh while I am working out and reminds me that the abs that she and the other girls have didn't come for free. So, I keep working.

I remind myself that I have birthed 4 children. 3 of them at home. I can do this. I might be walking like Frankenstein today, but it will get better I am sure. If it doesn't, then I will be a very fit girl in a wheelchair.

My copy is coming in at the library today or tomorrow so I can try it out before I buy. But, I've lost a couple pounds on the Shrinking Into Summer Challenge over there. Thanks for posting the link!!

I can imagine that you hurt! Maybe I should join you! I have been lifting weights when I go to the gym and I hate it. Ok, maybe not hate, but I don't like it! I am tried of sore arms!

you are too cute! if you want to add more ;) I am now going to the rec center for that great lifting class 6:30-7:15am on Fridays. Maybe when you are done with this challenge you could do a $2 treat class at the rec center with me!

My body HURTS!!! I have gotten more sore as the day goes on. I think having my desk job is slowly killing me today!

When I get home...time to do it all again!!

Keep it up! You can do it!

You rock! That's tough stuff. I'm truly a wuss, I've never even attempted. :)
