Well, the euphoria of starting this challenge has worn off and my muscles hurt this morning! My quads are sore and my wings (you know, the part of your back right above the band of your bra?) felt stiff as I pulled on my workout clothes this morning. Nevertheless, I knew we needed to get a jump on our workout, so at 9:15 this morning we did Day 2 of our 30 Day Shred Challenge.
How was it? (Updated: LoveAphid now calls it the 30 Day Dread--I think that says it all.)
Well, let's see. As Jillian started her intro, I was enthusiastic. When Jillian had us doing windmills, I started being concerned. When I hit the ground for my girl push-ups? I wanted to cry! Squatting for standing rows? Ow, ow, ow! Those side lunges combined with lifting weights to shoulder height? They almost did me in.
What about Valiant and Buttercup? Valiant eschewed the weights this time and did better...he's working on form and trying not to be all over the place. Buttercup? She said her legs her, her back hurt, and it wasn't so fun today!
What about you? Have you done your workout yet? Did you wake-up stiff and wonder why you even thought this was a good idea? I KNOW you can do it...seriously...taking care of yourself is a gift you give not just to yourself, but to those you love. So, get out there and put in your 20 minutes.
Oh, and if nothing else persuades you? Look at it this way: we've only got 28 more!
Have a terrific day!
P.S. I'll be back later today with an awesome chocolate chip cookie recipe...
