30 Day Shred – Day 9

Ugh. Early morning today getting out the door to make 75 apple pies with my MOPS steering team. Put together ingredients for 50 more pies for the mommies to make Thursday at our MOPS meeting. After standing for 5 hours cutting apples, measuring ingredients, crumbling topping and hitting the pulse button on my Cuisinart, I was B.E.A.T.

The absolute last thing on earth I wanted to do when we got home was face Jillian. But, I have a meeting tonight and won’t be home to do my workout after the munchkins are down for the night – so I trudged up the stairs during naptime and forced myself to the playroom (where I exercise) instead of flopping down on my bed for a nap myself.

I wonder when my arms will stop shaking at the conclusion of my shred. Seems like they should be getting stronger daily, but they still just feel like limp noodles at the end of my workout. Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like I’m getting some serious definition in my shoulders, which is awesome. I still love Jillian – and the knowledge that my shred will be over in a mere 20 minutes makes convincing myself workout much easier than when I know I’m going to be at the gym for an hour and a half.

I know a couple of people who read this have decided to start doing Jillian’s 30 Day Shred as well. I’d love to hear how you folks are doing! 🙂
