As in Jillian Michael’s 30-Day Shred. It kicked my butt. I had to stop 3 times & couldn’t do everything and it’s only a 20 minute workout!! BUT I LOVED IT!! It was 6:30 in the morning & I like workouts I can do in my pjs. This is not one of them. Too many jumping jacks & jump rope movements!!!! The fact that I loved the workout speaks volumes to Jillian’s approach. (Of course, if she’d been in my living room she would have been screaming in my face to keep moving!!!!!) There were no cutesy, happy little exercisers in the background to irritate the tar out of my sweating, gasping self! I’m happy & sore & so very tired today. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to shred tomorrow or if I’ll need to wait until Friday to try again. Yippee! I want to try again!!
Kristen got to ride Norman again today. Her legs were a little sore already from we’re not sure what & Zack had her holding onto Norman with her legs & balancing rocks on the backs of her hands to keep her from grabbing his mane to steady herself. She has to steady herself using her legs not her hands! Then she got to practice leading Norman. He leads like a charm, but you have to do it the right way. Who knew? It’s amazing how easy it is to lead a horse when you do it the right way. Zack & Jeff make it look so effortless.
Did I rave about Karra’s pointe costume yet? Oh, my word it is sooooo beautiful! She wanted to test for her shoes again last night, but Miss Patty was getting ready to leave for Florida. Now she has to wait for 2 weeks!! She’s feeling very confident about testing this time. I can’t wait to get pictures of her in her toe shoes & that costume. It looks like something out of the Nutcracker! Oh!!!!
I’m getting bugged about dinner, so I’d better go.
And that’s what’s happening on the homestead.
