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!!!  :)

Happy Friday,


  1. Congrats! The first step is always the hardest. This can turn out into a great thing for you. Just imagine how much stronger and fit you are going to be in 30 days. Go, Cara!

    Oh, and you do have a super smart daughter :)

  2. That is AwEsoMe ! I also have that DVD, I may do that for a Novemeber Challenge. I recently purchased her Yoga DVD...ugh, bruuutttalll but well worth it !

    Keep up the good work and listen to your daughter ; )

  3. Good for you! Those challenges keep us going on a positive trail. Keep it up, it will get easier!

  4. Hey Cara, that is so cool that you started the Shred! I got the DVD and planned on starting on the 1st, but didn't. I'm going to start it this month sometime!

    Yes, your daughter is very smart. Keep up the good work!!!
