30 Day Shred Challenge - Day 22 (Manic Monday Edition!)

I cannot believe we're already 22 days into our 30 Day Shred Challenge. Valiant has kept up with me the entire way and is now my official workout buddy. Monday always finds the Nagle5 doing chores and returning the house to a state of order after the weekend. This Monday was no different. What was different, however, was that we could hardly wait to get done with our chores and get to our exercise. Seriously.

We love Level 3! If you're even considering jumping on board and committing to doing this video, all we can say is that you need to push through Level 2 to get to Level 3. Level 1 is hard...it gets you used to working after no working for years (!), but Level 2 just seem tedious. When you get to Level 3, it is like the sun has finally come out.

Don't misunderstand me. Level 3 is really challenging, but the truth is that it leaves you so invigorated when you're done. I told Superman Level 3 reminded me of aerobics classes I took when I was younger. Back then, I'd pick my classes based on the teacher. The hardest classes that managed to be fun were the ones I picked. I wanted to feel like I worked, I wanted to be tired, but I didn't want it to feel like drudgery.

So, there you have it...Day 22 is done and we have only 8 more days to go until Valiant and I can say, "We did it!". Pretty cool, isn't it?

A clean house, enthusiastic exercise, and a husband who did his first day of Level 2...that is what made me proud today!

See I told you I bet you'd like Level 3. I did my 30 minutes. Have started doing 20 minutes of free step on the Wii because that allows me to watch tv while I exercise so I can just watch tv and mindlessly do the step part. Then I do the yoga part. Did Christmas shopping today and bought smaller clothes for me, so I hope we aren't stopping this after the new year. LOL I am sort of between sizes. The old size is really too large, but the new size just looks like I am trying too hard. So I want to tone up a little more before Santa baby puts these under the tree. Didn't want to buy the larger size though because these are my winter clothes and I don't want them falling off me before spring.
Painting still moving slower than planned. Trying to keep Hubby on task so we can finish it before the company comes. He's off next week. But he has a way of wasting time like no man I have ever met.
