I did it!!! Day one of the 30 Day Shred, I mean. I was thinking of joining Syl's October Challenge, but I wasn't sure if my DVD would be here on time. And, to be honest, I was a little scared intimidated to join in. I figured it would be hard, and horrible and unbearable. Well, anyway, my copy got here yesterday. So I started it today, and I am going to challenge myself. It was hard, for sure, but not as hard as I was expecting. It seems crazy that I can do this. I remember when I was so challenged just doing the step exercise on the Wii Fit Plus. I was so surprised when I finished it. My 9 y.o. daughter asked why I was so excited and I said "I didn't think I would be able to do it" so she say's "You just don't give yourself enough credit". Smarty Pants!!! I guess she has been listening to me :) Oh, and just so I can look back and see future improvement (on those days when I may want to quit) I have to say:
jumping jacks - Yikes!!!
push ups - Ouch!!!
and sideways, lunge-y thingies with hand weights - Raaaargh!!! :)
I am an ordinary girl, if there is such a thing :) I am a wife and mother and I LOVE my family more than anything. I believe in living a joyful life. I know that I create my own happiness and I am so excited to start my blogging journey!
