Not only have I been a blog slacker…

I have been a Shred Slacker too. Yes, I am bad. My exercising has dwindled down to….none or maybe once a week. I lost some momentum when my knees starting hurting around Shred day 22 or so. So I cut back. Then I starting doing my Biggest Loser Yoga video (which I really like, except … [Read more…]

Blog SLACKER

I haven’t blogged in over a month! AK! Not that I have readers pounding at my door, dying to know about my life…but still! I feel bad. I have been so busy with school and just LIFE! My time is consumed with homework. This is actually a “lighter” week–meaning I don’t have 600 pages to … [Read more…]

Menu Planning

I was inspired by my friend Tara‘s blog to post a copy of my weekly menu plan. I have been planning weekly menus since Aaron and I got married. It helps me know what I am going to make every night and, more importantly, keeps me from wandering aimlessly in the grocery store, buying lots … [Read more…]

Shred- Day 12 The Good and the Bad

Today is Day 12 of Shredding. After 10 days of doing Level One, I was feeling pretty good–a lot stronger, confident, maybe a little cocky. It is time, I thought, to move on up to Level Two! WOOT! Well, after two days of Level Two, I am not feeling so, um, cocky anymore. Level Two, … [Read more…]

Shred update

I am still Shredding! Today is day 10!! WOW! I took Sunday off–I told myself I needed a break (seriously, I think I was just being lazy)–but I was back at it on Monday. Tomorrow I start Level 2! EEK! I am scared. My endurance is so much greater than when I started a week … [Read more…]

My new cloth diapers!

I made some new cloth diapers. I LOVE using cloth! We have used cloth diapers since the boys were born (we use disposables sometimes too, but cloth about 90% of the time) and I love it!  I made some diapers last summer. They were for 10-20 lbs and now the boys are growing out of … [Read more…]

Day 4- The Shred

An update on my workout challenge: I am MUCH less sore today! YEA! Thank goodness. Right now, my muscle are feeling good and not hurting so much. I am getting stronger!

Shred = Sore

Day 3 of exercising/The Shred. One word: SORE! How can 20 minutes leave you aching for the rest of the day? The good part is, I feel really good after I finish and the exercising makes me feel strong. Just really, really sore. Waiting anxiously for results and more endurance as I keep at it!

Back to School

I am in my second week of school and second semester of my MA English program. So far, it is going well. I am taking 9 hours (3 classes) which is full time. Am I crazy? Sometimes I think so! Here is my schedule: MW 4:05-5:20pm Christian Poetics (this is not a poetry class. More … [Read more…]

The Shred

Today I started “The Shred”–Jillian Michaels workout video. Yes, Jillian Michaels of Biggest Loser fame. It is an intense 20 minute workout consisting of alternating intervals of cardio, abs and strength exercises. And boy, was I shaky afterwards. And now, 15 hours after completing the workout, I am SORE! I also bought Bob’s Yoga video, … [Read more…]
