So R1 and I have started to work out. We're shredding actually. Well really it's the 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels.

I'm sure many of you have heard of this. I even blogged about it sometime ago when I purchased the video. And true to form, I never opened it. It sat unopened for over a year. I know I know I had every intention of opening it and working out. And you know what they say about good intentions.

Anyway Tuesday R1, R2, and myself put that DVD in worked out for 30 minutes. And I am going to admit it. I AM OUT OF SHAPE! Level one kicked my booty. Sad sad sad.

But the best part of the work was Hubs. When Jillian said she had 400 pound people that could do jumping jacks and we needed to do the jumping jacks, Hubs came out of the kitchen took his shirt off and did a few fast jumping jacks. R1 then told him he need to keep jumping because his belly was still giggling.

I almost peed in my pants I laughed so hard. It was to darn funny!

And last night when we worked out again, R2 keep telling us to "keep going" and to "suck it in"! When I thanked him at one point for the motivation. He said you're welcome, that's what personal trainers do.

Oh how I love that kid.

I love the Shred! Keep it up and you will see results and before long, you will be ready to move to level two.

I love that your kids are doing it with you! It always helps to have a personal trainer!
