Today I started a new (hah!) exercise regimen. After hearing TONS of people talk about the 30 Day Shred on twitter, I decided that 20 minutes a day totally sounded like my kind of exercise and joined in.
I must say. IT'S HARD. I'm proud of myself for being able to do most of it but MAN by the end I am T-I-R-E-D. Like, huffing and puffing, nobody-better-see-me-this-pathetic tired. It's not pretty, people.
BUT, I gave myself a while to cool down, drank some water, ate something and I felt terrific. So good that I later decided to go wash my car! By hand! Which I haven't done in Idontknowhowlong. If you've seen my car, you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't seen it? Good. Your eyes are better that way. I gave up on my car being cute a loooong time ago. Anyway, back to me.
I decided it would be awesome! to go wash my car in the driveway. And it was, for about 15 minutes. Then, with the sweat dripping down my face into my eyes and off my chin, I realized, "Wow! It's 101 degrees!" Then I promptly doused my head with water from the hose. That made things better.
So all in all, yes the Shred was HARD. But it felt really good to be active. I don't even mind the sore muscles I have! (We'll see how I feel about them tomorrow). I've been staying UNDER!!! my points allotment each day, so hopefully I'll see results when I weigh in this week.
On a related note...a freaking banana is two points? B.S. Other fruit that is no points = way tastier. Less filling, but still.
