Most people start resolutions once the new year begins, but I didn’t want to put off what needed to be done. I needed a kick in the butt, I needed to get back into exercising and getting fit. So mid-December I began the 30 Day Shred. If you are unfamiliar with it, it’s a 20 minute regime you commit to doing for 30 days. In theory, you’ll do 10 days at each level, starting with level one, working up to level three.
Today I finished day 23, which means I’ve been doing level three for three days. Oh my goodness, I’m aching. My goal was not to lose weight, but rather to tone. And it’s clear to me that I’m on track for that. Geoff has encouraged for me to have a plan for what will be next once this is over. And my plan is to do some of the exercises, and some Wii Fit yoga until I get back from my trip. Then I’m committing to another 30 days of doing the shred.
All this fitness has an end goal- I want to hike one of Colorado’s 14ers this year. A goal I wouldn’t have thought possible a year ago, but I totally think is achievable in 2012.
I hope I’ve inspired you to get active. Take baby steps if needed, and seek out support for accountability and encouragement. You can do it!
