Enter Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred. For the uninitiated, Jillian is the female trainer on The Biggest Loser and an all-around ass-kicker. I need my ass kicked. The Shred dvd comes highly recommended by many on the internets and even a few friends from real life. I want to see muscles in my arms that I have never seen before. I want to see some semblance of a waist re-appear. I want my butt to defy the gravitational pull. I want my scrawny chicken legs to gain some shape. Basically, I want a new body. A body that doesn't outwardly show the blemishes of childbirth.
By posting this here, I am publicly committing to 30 days of shredding. Maybe not 30 days in a ROW but I hope to be finished by the beginning of December. And maybe, hopefully, this will be just the beginning.
Today is Day One. Bring it on, Jillian, bring it on.
**Updated 10/30/08: Holy hell mother of god my muscles hurt today. Muscles I didn't even know I owned. Burning pain searing through my body. I can't wait to do it again.
Laughter was Noah's first response when he and I discussed whether or not I could finish the 30 days. He can be such a jerk.
