“I came the simple way, down the stairs.”
“Down the stairs? To Ursa Minor? Hey, you must be unbelievably fit.”
– Douglas Adams, The Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy
On the recommendation of a coworker, a rather impressive sister-in-law, and over a thousand Amazon customers, I picked up Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred. Amusingly, the DVD case got worked over in the mail and it arrived, ahem, shredded! (Guffaw)
The DVD itself runs just fine, but that’s more than can be said for us. J. pushed himself too hard the first day we did it and lost his dinner rather inelegantly. I’ve been unable to walk without wobbling a bit for the past few days,. Iimagine a more than usually ungainly penguin bobbing back and forth across the ice and you’ll have some idea what I look like going up and down stairs.
In other words, it’s working. I’m determined to be extremely fit by the time we go off to grad school!
