30 Day Shred Challenge - Day 11 (Thanksgiving Edition)

Another Thanksgiving is coming to an end. The food hast been eaten, the leftovers are in the fridge, the dishes have be done, and the turkey carcass is boiling on the stove. Everyone is feeling happily stuffed. We don't watch football, but a screening of The Incredibles is currently playing on the Nagle5 television. Oh, did I mention we made homemade whipped cream and that half a pumpkin pie went home with Charming? All in all, it was an awesome Thanksgiving.

Before Thanksgiving, however, Valiant and I stuck to our schedule and we did Day 11 of our 30 Day Shred Challenge. Today was our first day of Level 2. We'd heard that Level 2 was easier than Level 1, but we really didn't believe it. I'm happy to report that it was easier! Seriously. I couldn't believe it. So, even though it is Thanksgiving Day, we did it...Day 11 is put to bed!

Oh, one more thing. Superman and I have been sharing a personal challenge and yesterday marked our 30th day in a row of exercise. You read that right...Superman and I have not missed a day of exercise in 31 days! I know it doesn't sound like a big deal, but we're so proud of ourselves, I just had to share.

If we can do this, you can, too. We're out of shape and overweight, but we're not letting that stop us. Our secret? We're taking it one day at a time and at the end of the day, we're making ourselves proud and making our children proud of us.

I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you're feeling positive as we head into the holiday season.

Well done on doing your training on Thanksgiving...I plan to do that on Xmas day myself...
I train 7x a week normally, 2x on a Thursday and take Saturdays off ( normally )
I do believe in one day of rest or a easy walk...The body gets tired and if you over do it you stop completely and struggle to get going again.

yaay *claps.* I told you that consistency makes it easier (and that level 2 is funner :))

Well as you know I have been blocked from my TV set. Seriously, can not get in front of it. I missed a couple of days so I will do the 30 day shred but it might take me 40 days to get it done. As for you my amazing sister and nephew... Rock on with your bad selves!!! I have not been able to say that I have gone 31 days with exercise since I was Valiant's age. Hooray for you!

We traveled yesterday and so I didn't do it and I am miserable today. I have a migraine to beat all migraines. I can't even hold my head up. Typing this is excrutiating. Going back to bed. Will try again tomorrow. Life is too short to beat myself up, but I will get in the exercise. This is what you learn with chronic illness like migraines. Do what you can, rest when you can't. No back to bed.
