A moment on the lips, for ever on the hips

Emily sent this to me yesterday and I laughed so very hard and am still laughing at it! I have the best sister-in-law a girl could ask for. Actually I have two of them but I am just referencing my first this morning. Emily is like another sister to me and even though we live 500 miles apart, we've forged a pretty tight relationship. At least I think so! Any hoo, last fall we started doing Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred workout and we were each other's cheerleaders. We would always try to encourage each other and make each other accountable for doing the hard.as.heck. work out every day. And we were very successful for quite a while. Then something happened and we quit. We started again and were pretty successful and then something else happened and we quit again. So basically it's been since sometime in May that we last worked out with ole Jillian. Through out the Summer we whined and complained and talked about how we were fat and lazy but didn't really care. Then, it happened. The new shorts at the beginning of the Summer that I bought have gotten tight on me. And a few pretty other disgusting things that I am ashamed of for letting getting jiggly again. I wont share what Emily has discovered since it's not her blog but it's pretty much the same problems I have :)

We have vowed to start again and keep it going strong for at least 30 days. At least. Well, I've gotten up at 5:30 the last 2 mornings to get mine in and Em did hers yesterday morning while her youngest "worked out" with her. I told her she was a rock star for doing that.

I almost cried when I thought about getting up at 5:30 again but I didn't. I almost cried when I lifted my arms this morning when I got out of the bed. But I didn't; I just grunted and made a few other whining noises. I'm pretty up set at myself for letting me get so behind. I was in such a good place for a long time and having to work so hard to get back there is almost worse than the tight pants.
