30 Day Challenge

On my birthday list, number 5 was 'Set up a workout regimen and actually keep to it.'

I can only cross off the first part of that sentence at this point. Today I began my first day of Kosher On A Budget's 30 Day Challenge (follow progress on Twitter with #KOAB30DayShred). We are working with Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred DVD and it is an intense daily workout of 20 minutes, ranging through 3 levels of insanity. 

Let me just tell you, day 1 totally kicked my butt. Literally. There is an exercise where you are kicking your legs back, high enough to kick your own arse.

I'm not quite as brave as most bloggers out there. I'm not about to tell you the nitty gritty details of how much extra weight I need to lose and post a picture of my roundness. Round is, after all, a shape so I'm in shape at least! 

I will just tell you this - I am headed from flab to fab.

No promises on how long. No promises to make regular posts about it. It may happen quick; I may blog about it often. Just being pretty non-committal over here in my comfy chair! 

Trying to feel my legs again.

My cousin's Bar Mitzvah is the first weekend of March in California. I will be there alone for all of ten seconds. Seriously. Ok, maybe not seriously but it will definitely feel like that! I get in Friday, midday, and I leave Monday afternoon. And the Bar Mitzvah is on Shabbos and Sunday. So this trip will be all about family. And I would love to look great in whatever I am wearing.

So there's a soft goal ahead. But again, as long as you are confident, you can look good no matter what. So, yeah. Non-committal. 

And now to finish folding my 8 million loads of laundry waiting in my hallway. Gotta work out my arms too, right!! ;)

Ha, I've got three posts about the workout that are sitting in my drafts. I think I should not be cringing in pain every time I laugh before I come back to talk about it. Don't want to scare away the masses :)

PS honored to have two of my favorite bloggers over here!!
