The Shred-PSF


DSC_5063Mr. Serious and I started The 30 Day Shred this week.

The first two days, we were so sore, it was hard to hold out munchkin or even walk.  By day three, we were feeling better.

It has become our nightly routine.  We get together every night and do our Shred.

Wednesday, day 5, he had Bible Study, so we had to “get our Shred on” before a certain someone went to bed.

So, she joined us.

She was a really trooper. 

It was so cute to watch her, too.  This was the only chance I had to take a picture…you really don’t get a break during the workout.

She did her version of jumping jacks and jump rope and was even trying to take our weights from us (we finally convinced her two plastic animals were good weights).

Even the sit-ups weren’t a challenge for her.  It was almost like she’s done them before.

She did the first half before she got bored and did a puzzle.

It was a fun way for us to show her the importance of exercising and taking care of yourself.  And, we also showed her that it’s important that Mommy and Daddy take the time to exercise together, too.
