So I gritted myself through Day 1, and it was tough! There were a few places I had to just march in place or I would have collapsed. But I did it! I wonder how sore I'll be tomorrow.
An interesting thing happened afterward though. One of the things that I feel remorse about is that I haven't been a better example for my daughter, as it relates to diet and fitness. I know I need to model the behavior I hope her to copy, but more often than not...I don't. And she is following in my footsteps...in ways I regret. Anyway, I was all hot and sweaty when she got home from school. (Usually I'm sitting on my bed or the couch, using my computer.) She asked what I had done and I told her about The Shred. She said "I wish it wasn't too cold to go for a bike ride." I told her that she could wear a coat and gloves (it's about 30 out) and ride, ride, ride! I am 100% positive that if I had been sitting on my bed like normal, that is NOT what she would have said. She would have gotten HER laptop and joined me. But, I was sitting there, sweaty from working out...and she had the idea to go ride her bike.
It's amazing when life's lessons are so evident.
