Today is the First Day...

...of the rest of my life.

Yeah, yeah. I know it's trite, but that's really how I feel. Like I'm on the brink of something big.

Or something smaller.

Tonight I begin my first day of the 30 Day Shred. I paid $14.99 for Jillian Michaels to kick my butt for the next 30 days (and the 30 after that, and the 30 after that...). I'm bound and determined to stick with it.
And for some strange reason, I feel like this is gonna work. Like after all these years, something has finally clicked in my brain. Maybe it's got something to do with the fact that I'll be 40 in a little less than two months. Maybe it's got something to do with losing a seemingly healthy former student to a sudden heart attack. Maybe it's got something to do with having two young children and really wanting to be around to dance at their weddings and play with my future grandchildren.

Maybe I'm just really scared of Jillian Michaels.

I don't really know, but I'll keep you posted.

And I'll be sure to let you know exactly how shredded I feel tomorrow morning.

Good Luck!

I made it 15 days - not for lack of wanting to finish, it just killed my knees.

I love the Shred. I started on level 2 after having worked out for a couple of months, and it's not for the faint of heart. Keep at it, you MUST not skip a day in the first 30 days!

I found the videos online and man-o-man do they work those muscles!

I hope you get healthy (and lose some weight, too)!
