Shredhead Update

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.

Wow! I'm impressed! I think I've read of a lot of bloggers STARTING the 30 day shred...

Hey, if you're not using it, can I borrow your video in about 6 months??? :)

Awesome! It's great when you find what works for you. Videos don't work for everyone but at least it was the jump start you needed.

Gah, Jillian Michaels kicked my butt for about three or four days before I could no longer walk and put away the DVD. Go you for making it longer than that!
