It is Day 1 of our 30 Day Shred Challenge. Did you do it? Did you move your body for 20 minutes today? It is not too late. It is not even too late to run out to buy the video...Target has it on sale for $9!
I know LoveAphid did it because she called me and said, "Tell me again why we are doing this?" (She was panting in my ear!) She hasn't blogged about how much fun it was, though...I wonder why? I'm waiting to hear from Melissa at 365 Days of Exercise, but we know she's dedicated! (She's also super funny...she posted a picture of the Wii fit age she earned yesterday because it was 9 years less than her real age...you can see her little Mii jumping up and down!) My friend Generations Gone By wants to know if she can get credit for shopping for baby girl clothes (um, no!) and Alicia and Andrea say they're in, but none of them have yet shared with us their 20 minutes today. Even my neighbor said she was going to join the Challenge to move 20 minutes a day! (And, Alicia, she's got five kids, too!)
So, what about me? Well, I did it! Not only that, Valiant and Buttercup have joined in on the challenge, too. My feedback? 20 minutes feels like a really long time! My quads hurt while I was doing it and my arms got tired by the end. Did I mention this is Level 1? Buttercup said it was fun (and said she should use weights tomorrow)...Valiant said it was hard, but he doesn't bend his knees which made every exercise more difficult (because his mother kept saying, "Bend your knees!"). Actually, I'm just excited that the Challenge has begun and I'm not alone.
So, what have you done today to make you feel proud? Remember, tomorrow comes either way...it will be what you make of it! You CAN do whatever you set your mind to.
