30 Day Shred, Day 2

Sometimes I just think that if I work really really hard, that God will bless my efforts...right? That's the way it works, right? Well, it seems like the devil sure ain't likin' that much, because just when I think, "hey, yeah, I can do this..." all HELL comes breaking loose.

Tonight I ate my access bar at the kids settled with some TV for 15 minutes, telling them I was going to work out soon - nursed the baby, she's sound asleep, put her down and RIGHT AT 7pm ON THE NOSE, when I turn on the DVD, she wakes up crying...and it's now 8:28pm and she's STILL CRYING.

Micah insisted on "shredding" with me, as did Shira, so I had to keep yelling for them to move lest I step on them. Tobin played his standard oblivious card and ignored my 4 requests to put the dogs away so I didn't have to deal with THEM in the mix too. So by the time I was done with my 20 minutes, my heart rate was definitely up - in more ways than one.

I am sore today, but not unmanagable...there were days after my workouts at the gym that I felt like dying, this is just a low level sore, so maybe that ProFlex really worked! I am feeling pretty confident that my endurance level is coming back pretty quickly after a month off of workouts at the gym - and I can't wait to see how much easier it gets by Day 10.

Oh, and official measurements yet to come, but starting weight...(please don't judge me...) 152.8. YIKES!

I can so relate to this. It is just hard to get the exercise time in when there are little ones around. I'm proud of you for trying! I might have to check out this 30 day Shred thing. You look great by the way...had so much fun seeing you! Let's do it again really soon!

Okay it's looking like you are blogging about as much as I am! I was laughing about this post because it is all too familiar...only I remember getting up WAY ahead of the kids (a true feat) and having them wake up wanting breakfast (and for me to hold them) during MY exercise time. ACK!! Hope things are going well with your crew!
