Dear Jillian Michaels, I hate you.

OK. Not really but my arms and thighs do!

Today is day 1 of my 30 day shred! I'm not super excited to do it as I've not REALLY worked out consistently since college BUT the time has come. I still have 5 pounds of baby weight to "shred" but more than anything, I need to TONE UP!

At first, Parker was down for a nap and Avie was WIDE awake! So I started with doing some leg work on the floor with Avery on my legs. She loved and giggled up a storm! THEN, I flipped over and did push ups with her on the floor. I'd lower myself, kiss her, then do it again on the other side. Once again, she thought it was hilarious which was precious but counter productive to my "Avery needs a nap so mommy can work out" plan. Eventually, I laid her on her mat and kept putting her paci in until she sucked herself to sleep. SCORE.
But MOM... I was enjoying our play/exercise floor time!

Meet Jillian, body. She'll be kicking you into shape. 

Jillian is super boring, mom. I'm O-U-T!

First day review: It was hard but not un-doable. (I made that word up). There was never a time that I wanted to turn it off and I only modified the push ups so I'll consider day 1, better than I was expecting. I'll do level 1 a few more days then up to level 2! WOO HOO!

So.... 30 days (29 to go) Goal: 5 pounds that should be totally obtainable. BUT if I don't loose actual weight but I fit back in my size 4 clothes which is what I was before Avie, I'll consider it a great success! Wish me luck!

  1. I just bought the DVD too! I haven't started it yet. Glad to know it's not completely un-doable :)
