We have been focusing a lot on eating better, and being more active. I now bake most of our bread, and we are eating a lot more fresh vegetables and fruits. We have cut out a lot of sugar and don’t eat as much meat. While the first few days were difficult, everyone seems to be liking it now.But getting active in the wintertime is tough here. So Zack and I decided to start a DVD program last week: The 30 Day Shred. While it’s primarily designed for women, I read about a lot of couples going through it together. My husband is a good sport and agreed to give it a try.
So here’s how it works: a 20 minute workout, once a day, for 30 days. It’s split into three levels, so you do each level for 10 days.
And I think it just might be working. When we started Level 1 I couldn’t make it through without pausing. By Day 10, it was really no problem. Then Level 2 began yesterday, and I thought I was going to die! But I am happy to report that we have yet to skip a day, and after 12 days we are feeling better already.
I’ll report back later, and let you all know how it turns out!
