Today, from the waist down, I have rubber bands for appendages.  My arms feel like spaghetti.  And do not even get me started about my abs.  Just don't make me laugh for a few days.  If I had arm strength, I think I'd punch you.

There was a day when I could run circles around most people.  A workout?  Ha, I laughed in the face of workouts.  I'd play 3 hours of soccer then head off to climb or something.

Even in college I was playing soccer at least 4 or 5 days a week.

I was in shape.  Good shape.  I didn't get winded climbing stairs, to say the least.

Then I met Shaun.  And we got married. 

Shaun and I like food.  We REALLY like food.  And after we got married, we ate a lot of it.  And spent a good amount of time sitting on the couch watching movies while we did it. 

But we started soccer-ing again...  and life was again ok on the fitness front.

And then I had 3 kids. 

Now, I thought that chasing them around and hauling the MEATBALL everywhere was an amazing workout.  

Then I met Jillian Michaels.


She scares me.

My body feels like I've been flogged. 

I'm choosing to believe that it's because the workout is hard and not because I was such a fledgling weakling that 2 days of a 30 minute workout has practically crippled me. 

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to waddle to the kitchen to eat some m&m's celery.


  1. Hope the M&M's won out, just this once. :o)

  2. I think I know the workout you're talking about. Of course that was from before I was pregnant (again). It does kick your butt. I'm sure I'll get desperate and try it again someday after baby is born.

  3. MEATBALL!!!!!!!!!!!:) it the "Thirty Day Shred" you're talking about? Jillian is hardcore!

  4. Good for you!

    I did Day 1 of the 30 day shred this morning and it was HARD! They have them on Fios on demand but only the first day. I guess I'll just get a one day shred.

  5. I am so with you. I worked out for the first time in over a year the other day and thought i was going to die when i woke up the next. I am really going to start trying to do it everyday but man o man is it killin me.
