    I just done with my first session of “the Shred” and I’m sitting outside [with a bright red face] and drinking my Diet Pepsi and rum. How’s that for a post-workout drink? heh

    My main issue, other than never getting off of my butt, is diet-meaning I eat whatever is in front of me and I have an awful habit of cleaning my plate. Blame it on being raised in the South and threats of starving African children, but I do it nonetheless.

    Enter me in your book giveaway. Any diet has to be better than the everything on my plate diet.

    GO, GIRL!!  I’m wishing I could work up the initiative to jump on the shredding bandwagon.  Excuse though it might be, this single mom thing is shredding me all on it’s own. 

    Here’s to be seeing you all be motivated and jumpstarting my ass in the right direction. 

    *big sweaty hugs*

    Woo-hoo! You can do it! I’ve always been the girl with the bright red, nearly purple face during any exertion. When I did Irish dance, my fellow dancers would look at me and say, “Are you OK?” I was fine, but looked like I was close to a coronary.

    I’m doing the shred, too, and putting together Hot by Blogher again. I think we’re all going to look fabulous by July!

    Me please - I think you’re talking about my body/belly. SERIOUSLY. And I’m also the girl in the last comment. In middle/high school gym class, and now at the gym where I actually PAY to have people look at me funny, my face gets so red (purple) that people literally ask me if I’m OK. YES I AM OK, I AM TRYING TO BE LESS FAT THANK YOU FOR ASKING.

    Um, unfortunately, I need this. Too much FB/blog/Twitter.

    You can do it!

    I really do need to do this too.  I would like to lose weight in my boobs, please.

    And no I am not joking about that.

    Flat Belly? I’m in desperate need of a flat belly - I won’t have chances of another one for about 7 more months but I can read up and master the art can’t I? Maybe that will get me on the fast track for a Flat Belly! I love the word Belly!

    It’s time to shred the baby weight, but I’m hungry ALL.THE.TIME thanks to my 3-month-old who is sucking the life out of me!

    After 2 kids I’m seriously ready to flatten my belly!

    All this I’m hearing and reading about the Shred, I may need to check it out, especially since you mentioned the abs.  I miss my abs. 

    I’ve lost my motivation for the gym the last two weeks.  This has sort of given me some of it back.  Maybe I’ll actually make it back to my favorite Boot Camp class or spinning tomorrow morning.

    Once I started exercising again in January, and was there five nights a week, the “eat right” part was EASY. Once I realized that a cookie/ice cream/huge bowl of pasta meant more time at the gym, it was easy to turn away and have a salad.

    Interestingly, I don’t miss the comfort food at all.

    Sadly, those around me sometimes wish I was still repressing my emotions with food.

    But the books I’m writing now are much richer and more emotional.

    Win some, lose some, I guess.

    I would be interested in that book though. At this point, after two c-sections, and two additional abdominal surgeries, I will do almost ANYTHING to flatten this belly.

    So proud of you!

    I have the sharpei belly action whenever I bend down to shave my legs. Sexay!

    Save the Abs!  Much more appealing than Save the Whales.

    You, my friend, are awesomely hot.

    And my belly totally does the same thing wink

  • March 4, 2009

    So uhhh my belly also does the same thing and over on the sides too.  I’m so out of shape dude.  Can’t do anything till my back heals tho.  Frig.

  • March 4, 2009

    ok, I am cracking up!  Great post, love the “when in Rome” policy. 

    ohhh…to have a Flat Belly again! (sigh)

    Today was day 2 of the 30 Day Shred for me. I hope to work my way out of level one by the end of the first 30 days then do Level 2 for 30 days and then level 3. So maybe by BlogHer I will be able to wear all the cute summery clothes I own that don’t even close to fit any more. And I would love to win that skinny belly book! And, can’t wait to meet you in person at BlogHer! Woot!

  • March 6, 2009

    Go you!  It sounds like you’re going to do this!

  • March 6, 2009

    Can you just tell me whats in the book? I don’t think I possess the arm strength to pick up said book since beginning the shred…

  • March 6, 2009

    OMG, I so love the gym picture. I’m thinking that’s kind of a “fuckI’vehadit” look.

    I know that one well.

    Cheers to getting fit and all that jazz (just joined up with the rest of the crazies..I mean shredheads)

    Not to be too hokey, but I think you are perfect, just as you are.  xo
