Jillian and Annie

What do these two girls have in common?

They are both hard.

Jillian Michaels isn't fooling around.

Annie's Organics cans are perfect for an 8 year old to lift upon deciding to join me in day two of the "20 Minutes A Day Workout Project".

I do wish you could have been peeking into my living room window tonight.

Well, maybe not. Come to think of it, that's creepy.

However, if you have a dark side and were indeed peeking in, you would have seen Harper, Zane, and myself, all huffing and puffing along with Jillian and her kick-butt looking assistants during 30 Day Shred.

We are still on Level One.

Does that tell you something?

The best part? Watching Zane do hip circles. That is something to behold. And Harper has a mean push up. But, really, the highly focused hip circles a la Zane were adorable. But had I stopped at that moment to grab and squeeze and hug on him as I was tempted to do, I'm certain Ms. Michaels would have leaped out of the screen and rung my neck.

There's no phoning it in.

Harper and Zane kept up with me for about 10 minutes of the 20 minute workout. I with my 3 lb weights, Harper with her Annie's Organics cans, and Zane, weightless.

It was actually motivating to be working out with my children.

Day one. Check.

Day two. Check.

A few of you emailed me expressing interest in joining our little party.

So how are you doing only two days in? Leave a comment to encourage those of us who are in this game with you. Or, leave a comment as to how you're already slackin' and I'll pull out my best Jillian impersonation to light a fire under ya.

Thanks Veronica! Come on back for more coffee chat. I like to think of my site as coffeehouse - full of us coffee guzzling folks sitting and talking about everything under the sun!
