Summoning My Inner Yoda

Day 2 of the 30 Day Shred? Done, baby!

After a good night’s sleep, the tender muscles I’d used all day the day before had time to solidify, and I was greeted with cement legs and arms.  Putting on my sports bra was a workout. It would have been so easy to give up and get back in bed at that point.  But, I summoned my Inner Yoda, and I not only got dressed in my workout attire, I did the 20 minute session without stopping.

I didn’t try.
I did.

Yoda would be so proud!

The workout actually churned the cement down to a thick paste, and I can move!

This time, due to scheduling issues, Claire ate her breakfast while watching me shred. Because she was sitting and didn’t do the workout until the very end, after she was finished with her food, she was able to listen more intently to Jillian.

And, she was a bit concerned in parts.

“But, I don’t want your legs to burn, Momma!”

“They’re not *puff* really go- *huff* -ing to *fuff* burn, sweetie.”

“Why did she say you were going to die?”

“She said *huff* that we *puff* are going to feel *fuff* like it. *uggh* I’mnotreallygonnadie. *foooff*”

For me, Day 2 was equal parts easier and harder than Day 1. I like knowing what’s going to happen, so knowing what was coming next in the routine made it easier.  The problem I had with the ceiling yesterday didn’t seem like that big of an issue today.  Getting sore muscles to move is harder than getting unused muscles to move, so that made it harder. But, the workout actually helped them feel a little better.

And, if you ask Claire, today was a success, because Momma’s legs didn’t really burst into flame, and she didn’t die. And, I think if I can get through each day without those two things happening, I’ll count it as a success, too! ;)

  • hate to do it, but I have to. For me it is always the 24 hours later that I burn and ache all over. I hope day three is good to you because for me it would be HARD

  • LOL. Love the convo!

    Just realized I got the WRONG one. HUMPH!

  • Are you enjoying this? You don’t say if you’re having fun or feeling good/better. Are you look forward to doing this every morning? Having a little peanut gallery must make it a lot more enjoyable, too, eh?

  • I’m still laughing about the comment your daughter make “why did she say you are going to die?” Good for you.. I know that 2nd day is so hard when you are sore.

  • Oh, Terra. I thought I was going to die last night. Today is much better.

    MiaHysteria, there’s another one? Oh no! I hope you find the right one! Let me know if you need more info about the one I have.

    XUP, you ask awesome questions, and I actually address them in today’s post.

    Bonnie, Claire cracks me up, and she makes me set a good example. :)

  • Hilarious! I have a 3 year old, so I can totally relate to this conversation! ….”but whyyyyyyyyyy, mama??”
