30 day shred.

Because P90X is not a realistic option.

Since I can probably count on one hand the number of times I've exercised with my duo in the past 9 months, I decided I should do something about it.

Since I've found my motivation while we are on the cusp of ridiculously cold temperatures, I've decided that something indoors was probably the most realistic option. I really, really wanted to try P90X. Mike was planning on getting it for me for Christmas. But let's be realistic:

1) You have to be committed for 90 DAYS.
2) It costs upward of $150
3) My understanding is that it is an hour a day.

I don't think I could stay committed for 3 months, especially working out an hour a day. Gimme a break.

And I can for sure, find something to buy for $150 (like a new winter coat or some merrell boots). Winter is coming people.

So then I heard about the 30 Day Shred. 30 days seems a lot more doable than 90, and at $14.99 it's a lot more affordable. Oh, and did I mention that its 20 minutes a day? I can do that.

So I bought it and tried it yesterday. I did level one. I found it pretty simple, wasn't dying, but I am a tiny bit sore in my triceps. It reminds me of the conditioning I did during my 12 year gymnastics career. I'll probably do level 1 for a couple more days and then bump up to level two.

Love and Hate the shred! I did move up to level 2 after 2 days though, it was neccesary.

Hmmm... keep me updated on how this goes. It'd be nice to lose the weight from baby #2 in less than the 19 months it took me to lose it after Laura (well, honestly I never did lose it all... started this one 2 pounds up from where I was before getting pregnant the first time).
