I had a weak moment last night while hanging out on Twitter. Kristen, of Motherhood Uncensored fame, started tweeting about shredding. I had heard of it, and looked at on Amazon for all of half a second before running away in fear. Like I said, weak moment. I up and joined Kristen and her merry band of shredheads, while they could all still walk.
This time around on Weight Watchers has been pretty grim. If I am not obsessive about journalling, it’s an immediate fail. I can’t be obsessive all the time so the slippery slope to “what the hell?” is half a step in front of me all the time. And exercise? Has.Not.Been.Happening.
I have been trying to get myself to bed earlier and failing miserably. I’ve been getting to bed at midnight, or worse. Getting up in the morning has been getting harder. And then there was bronchitis last week. I haven’t had a really good nearly-pneumonia round of bronchitis since college.
For some reason, all of these little things weakened me to the point where shredding with a bunch of fine bloggers seemed like a good idea. The hell was I thinking?
I got to bed last night at a reasonable 11pm. And got up at 6. And spent the next 15 minutes searching for The Shred on Comcast’s on-demand service. Then convinced Oliver to go back to sleep, tried to do the workout while discovering just how bloody uncoordinated I am, but did.not.die. Oliver woke up and threatened to wake his sister and dad so I had to stop before it was done but I finished the first 22 minutes.
I did learn something critical…sneakers would be useful. I can only blame lack of sleep for managing to put on a sports bra and other workout gear, yet skipped the whole socks and shoes thing.
Tomorrow is another day. And it won’t take me nearly as long to find the damn thing on the tv.
Kristen asks that we divulge a few things at the start. Here goes:
a) Before pictures:
HA!!! There will be no pictures. More power to those braver than I.
b) Tag Line
“better off shred” of course
165 or thereabouts. My scale and the Weight Watchers scale are not on speaking terms.
short term: more clothes that fit. long term: 30 pounds. gone. forever.
e) Diet Plan
f) Personal Rules
Lots of water. Sticking with the plan. Journalling.
g) Shred Plan
As often as possible, but at least 4 days a week, level 1, 3 pound weights. Yoga and a good walk on the days I don’t shred. Walks on shred days when possible.
