So far, so good!

I have done the Shred now for 4 days (in a row, I might add!)

And 3 of those times have been with kids in the room. For an effective workout, I do not endorse Shredding with kids. Kids in the room mean too much talk and not enough action.

But my kids were excited to "take exercise" with me so I let them stay.

When Sarah saw I had soup cans, she ran to get some canned goods of her own. However, when she realized that I had the Campbell's Princess Chicken Noodle soup and she had a can of lima beans, she quickly begged for an exchange.

And after a few minutes of the Shred, Sarah declared, "I like my cousin Jillian, but I don't like this Jillian. This Jillian is mean!"

Mean? I don't think so Sarah. Anyone that can help me tighten my rear end in 4 days is not mean.

Peter was helping me this morning and was full of questions. "Why are those girls always in that same room wearing those same clothes?" "Why is that Jillian person the only one who ever talks?" "This isn't exercise Mom. Playing ball is exercise. This is easy!"

Easy? I don't think so Peter. Anything that can help me tighten my rear end in only 4 days is not easy.

After four days of The 30 Day Shred, I'm still excited. Level one is starting to get a little easier and I actually do look a little firmer in certain places.

But I do think I am going to upgrade from canned goods to actual hand weights. That way Sarah and I won't have to duke it out for the Disney Princesses. Because nobody should have to work out with lima beans!

Good for you!

I think it is hilarious that Sarah had to have the canned good with a Princess on it. She must really be a girly-girl!

Mari said...

Good job! Glad you are enjoying it, but I have to agree with Sarah - Jillian is pretty tough!

half gallon milk jugs filled with liquid make wonderful weights and are easy to hold... but I didn't tell you so because I wouldn't want anyone suspecting I know anything about excercise! ;)

My girls would have fought for the princess can, too.

Congrats on doing the Shred!

I really need to do something...besides eat chocolate cake and blog which is what I am doing now! ;)

Ha! I think that Jillian is mean, too!!! You rock, though. I so need to be doing this.

You rock! I so need to firm up too, but unfortunatly I don't think just reading about you exercising and laughing is going to help much :(

Keep up the good work.

After reading this I need to get off the computer and do some shredding too.

Rebekah said...

You go Girl! and it is difficult to exercise with kids around- I can attest to that.

But besides firming that back side- you are setting a good example for your kids.

Good job! I'm loving this workout, I'm SO glad you recommended it. It's definitely getting easier each time, I think in the next few days I may be ready for the harder version of level one. I'm actually being consistent with it too, which is incredibly exciting. :) And I agree, no one should have to work out with lima beans. ;)
