Well I did it! I did Shred on Level 1 and man did it kick my butt. I haven't worked out much the last 6 months or so. I actually had to take little 20-30 second breaks throughout the video. As I sit here typing this I am a little sore. But I have had sooo much more energy!! My husband even said, "Wow I can already tell a difference in your energy level because you are dragging around dinner time normally." And he is right...dealing with a 3 year old and 11 month old all day makes you exhausted but I felt great this evening.
I also made a conscious effort to eat better today. I got non fat milk in my coffee, ate a small portion of lunch, drank a lot more water than I usually do, and only had one taco for dinner when I really wanted two.
So all in all the first day went rather well. On to the 2nd.
