so this is what death feels like

Whose idea was it for me to do Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred? It was a horrible idea.

The first week was great. Took the weekend off and woke up this morning...and it took Roman handing me the video to get me off the couch. I kept telling him I didn't want to do it but he wouldn't have it. I think his calling is to be a personal trainer. He hands me the DVD and points to my weights about 3 times a day. He's hard core.

Last week was fun. I was on the high of "I'm working out! Go me!" But now it's "I don't want to work out! I don't NEED to be stress-free or patient with my kids or in shape." Working out hurts and I don't like it. I know there are some who thrive on the burn and the opportunity to push themselves to see how far they can go, but I am not one of those people. I'm a musician!!!!! I'm really good at sitting on a piano bench and practicing for a few hours. You know "us"- we were those white pasty kids in college who had extra love handles but we were okay with it because everyone else in class had them too! I wasn't made to work out...my psyche can't handle it. LOL

Day 6 done. 24 more to go.





Someone kill me now.
