So, even though I've met my goal in weight loss, I have been feeling terribly out 0f shape. Ever since school began this year, I haven't seemed to have many chance to get out and walk. Not to mention the fact that the FREEZING temperatures haven't been a great motivation.
Well, I have this friend. She is one of those who has to really work for how she looks and she does a FANTASTIC job! She really is such a motivation to me. Her scale may show a higher number than mine, but she is in much better shape and she has worked extremely hard to look really good for a Valentine's cruise her husband is taking her on. Anyway, she has been singing the praises of Jillian Michael's 30 day Shred* workout dvd since the holidays.
I haven't done a work-out dvd since I was pregnant with my 2nd child. I hate to have people see me workout and see how dumb I look. Just in case I had to tell you, it is very difficult to find time alone while living with 7 children and a husband.
However, after sitting down and figuring out where I could find 20 minutes alone (yes, that's all it takes!), I went to Wal-Mart and bought the dvd.
Unfortunately, I bought it the same day we were having our neighbor with her 5 children over to play. Of course, with 11 kids in the house, you have to have snacks.
So, there I am in Wal-Mart with my work-out dvd, 3 lb. hand-weights, THREE containers of Pringles, and one LARGE bucket of cookies.
It was a self-checkout day.
Oh, and the video? It's tough. It makes me sweat. I look like an idiot doing it. I can't walk up or down stairs without level 4 pain.
I LOVE IT!
*NOTE: PLEASE BE ADVISED: Jillian uses a word not found in the vocabulary of the Christian one time in level 1 and at least once in level 2. I don't know of any other times at this point.
