You know you are out of shape when....

After Jillian Michaels' five minute warm up, you are sweaty and out of breath. Ohhh myyyyy goshhhh.

Here is the story...

I ran to Wal-Mart on Saturday to pick up some stuff for our grill and happened to see a Jillian Michaels kit on sale for five dollars. (Five Dollars!!!) The kit included two of her work out DVDs and a set of hand weights. So of course I picked it up! One DVD was to boost your metabolism while the other was targeted for "trouble zones." I popped the DVD for "trouble zones" in this morning and thought to myself, "How hard could it be? I've done a ton of conditioning and muscle building in the past.".....................HAHAHAHAHA!

Its pathetic how jump-roping and jumping jacks for a few minutes leaves you practically dead.
I pushed through the five minute arm circuit then pushed through the five minute abs circuit
15 minutes of working out, people. 15 minutes and I'm dead and achy. And lets not mention five of those minutes was just considered "warming up"

I must have looked pretty pathetic because bro-in-law saw me and just started laughing. Then for pure entertainment only, he kicked back with a few tacos and watched me limp through my five minute circuit. 

The hubs needed to get his jokes in for the day, so he jumped on up and flailed his arms around in front of the T.V. and did some weird flamingo lady dance.
"Keep it up, hubs. Just humor me. Do it tomorrow and I'll have the camera ready."

SOOOO.....while you, my hubs, may think its hilarious to watch me struggle with one legged pushups while wearing spandex and sporting a lion's mane-like bedhead, I WILL keep pushing through these five minute circuits and WILL be happy with my strong and healthy body!


  1. Hahahahaha! I'd have died too! I'm so out of shape it's ridiculous. I think it's awesome that you're taking care of yourself! Keep it up! I'm proud of you, sis!
