479 Let's Get Physical

I have slowly been losing a few pounds here and there... Cinching my belt a little tighter.... So, I decided it was time to add a workout into my day.

It is nearly impossible for me to consistently set aside an hour or so to ride the exercise bike or hit the track. I knew I needed something FAST.

A friend I met through tumblr started doing The 30 Day Shred... She mentioned she just watches it on YouTube and it only takes about 20 minutes! DING DING DING! WE HAVE A WINNER!

So, I did it. Arrogantly thinking that having been in shape 17 years ago was going to make this a breeze!

I was SO wrong!

The first three days were hell. Everything hurt. EVERYTHING. My poor old lady knees most of all. Seriously, who knew doing 30 seconds of jumping jacks was SO hard?!

Then it started getting better... By day 6 I was looking forward to sweating. So, of course, my internet went out. I have managed a few workouts by writing out a list and using a timer... However, I made the mistake of working out in front of a mirror...that is enough to make anyone give up.

Internet got fixed today, so tomorrow I am going to start all over (it has 3 levels, you do each for 10 days)...

Oh, and I need to buy a new battery for my scale... Or not.
