So gosh I've not updated about this in a while. Let's see...I didn't finish the 30 Day Shred. It wasn't because I was unmotivated or something like that but for me it was the fact that I was exercising in my living room and it wasn't sitting well with me. Although I didn't finish this video, it motivated my ass to move.
Since I started the 30 Day Shred on Aug 2, 2009 (and finished doing it 2 weeks later...) I have been moving every day. Instead of continuing the video back in August, I started to get out an hour a day and ride my bike. I would sometimes do it for over an hour but usually it was an hour. I absolutely love my bike and my friend Rachel helped me develop the courage to ride my bike on roads with traffic. I also have started backpacking, another trip scheduled for PA in Nov, and I'm hiking all the time now. As a break for me and for the kids as well, we go to the Y Monday through Friday (except of course when a kid is sick, which is the case this week :( .) This has allowed me to work out and start training my body for the next triathlon season. So overall the video was a huge help for me in motivating me.
