i just finished up day four of the shred! i am super proud of myself...and am already seeing results!!
i know that some of you more athletic types are thinking..."big deal, it's been four days, what a wuss".
yes, i am a wuss. four days in a row of exercise that is kicking my booty is big for me.
allow me to present some evidence.
article number one: these are my "athletic shoes". i wear them any time i am going to exercise or do anything remotely athletic. i have dutifully worn them each and every time they were deemed appropriate. aren't they in great shape? no stains, minimal scuffs, 100% tread on the bottom.
know what's wrong with this photo? i bought them in 1997!!!
they are 14 years old and in excellent shape. i could lend them out without fear of embarrassment on their condition or smell. need i say more?
article number two: in high school i ALWAYS offered to sweep the gym floor in lieu of participating in class. always.
so you see...it IS a big deal to me. :) it IS getting easier and I am finding it less and less necessary to concentrate hard on my walking to avoid looking like a clobbering camel due to muscle pain.
I've gotten several emails from some of you who have decided to do this with me...that makes me so happy!! yay us!!!
tell me why you aren't doing it?
