It's Memorial Day weekend, and I'm on vacation. Although driving for 7 hours to sleep in even closer proximity to my children (a hotel) hardly seems like a vacation so far. Oh well. At least I planned well – I brought the 30 Day Shred, weights, and workout clothes. The hotel has a gym, so I have no excuses.
And after a long day of driving and then hanging with the relatives, I Shredded yesterday while the kids were in the bath – Level 1, Day 6, and it felt great! Well, I didn't actually watch the DVD, but I did it anyway. What, you haven't memorized Level 1 yet? Keep doing it and you will. Yeah, I went to the gym, set my new watch to do the appropriate intervals and I did the whole thing. It felt awesome, although I missed Jillian pestering me.
To make up for it there was a wall-sized mirror in the hotel gym, and I don't think I've ever seen myself doing Shred. It was a fascinating show, although I'd prefer to watch Anita shredding instead of me. It WAS nice to check my form, but the butt kicks, well, let's just say I looked silly and leave it at that.
This morning I ran on the treadmill, and I'm primed to keep working out while we're here. But you know what? If I don't keep it up over the whole weekend, I'm not going to beat myself up over it.
Jillian will take care of that for me when I get back.
