Top of the muffin to you!!

Both girls are napping and I'm sitting here trying to talk myself into putting in Jillian Michaels' 30-Day Shred. I'm on Day 3 and my entire body feels like it's going going to fall apart. Everything hurts. She scares me, Jillian. She always seems to be mad at me and I'm pretty sure she could cut me with her hip bones. I think she knows about all those times I laughed my way through episodes of The Biggest Loser with a glass of wine and a bag of BBQ chips.

The good thing about the 30-Day Shred is that the workouts are 20 minutes, which is about all I have to spare these days. If Mads is up she does it with me, jumping around and asking, "Why are you tired, Mommy? I'm never tired!" Try taking a few less water breaks and doing a few more push ups there, hot shot.

In any case, I'm hoping that if I manage to make it past Day 3 scary Jillian and her torture machine will help me get my old pre-baby physique back. Not that is was all that great to begin with, but despite being almost down to my starting weight, things just jiggle and hang in ways I'm pretty sure they shouldn't.

Okay, here goes, off the couch.... If you don't hear from me in the next couple of weeks I've probably thrown out my back. Or Jillian has hunted me down and killed me.

I wish you luck!! I have tried 3 separate times to make it through the entire 30 days of the 30 Day Shred, and every time somewhere around day 12 I end up getting sick (twice got the flu) or pinching my sciatic nerve (couldn't walk for like 2 days). That Jillian, man, I don't know. Is working out supposed to be torture? Lol.
Post your results!!!
