This and That

Hey there, ho there, hi there! I thought I would pop in over here and tell y'all about a few things that might benefit you in one way or another.

The first, is that I was pretty sure I was going kick over from excruciating pain yesterday. THAT part may not benefit you, but the torture device that caused me such anguish just might. Do you ever watch The Biggest Loser? We LOVE that show around here. One of the trainers on it is Jillian Michaels and she is dadgum MEAN. But she gets the results, peeps. So when someone recommended her DVD called 30 Day Shred, I checked it out. It has over 1,000 reviews and almost ALL of them are 5 star.

I got the thing on Friday afternoon, so on Saturday morning, I started shredding. Dear Heavens. By Saturday night I felt like someone had put a vice grip on my heiny all the way down to my ankles. But don't let that deter you! As painful as it is, that means that it is WORKING! It is a great workout and once my body recovers from Reveille, it'll be all good. ;)

The second thing is this: As the URL suggests, this is a program that offers coupons for kids to bowl for free in bowling centers all across the country throughout the summer. It doesn't appear to have any strings attached, although they do try to get you to sign up for a Family Pass, which we did not do, and we still got our coupons. Check it out if you are looking for something to do with your kids. Also, they are calling it a summer program, but ours officially started today (we won't go until tomorrow though).

I guess that's all for now. Please don't forget to pray for the Compassion Bloggers who are in India right now. They seem to be seeing some things that are so heartbreaking, yet it is necessary to get the word out. Tough stuff.

Love and crunches,

Sounds like a great workout. I've been eyeing some of her DVD's too and one of her Wii Workouts.. but not sure if I'm ready for that kind of pain though... LOL

I have the Biggest Loser workouts. They are pretty good, and they are probably gentler than the Shredder ones. ouch.

Just wondering how it is going? It is encouraging to hear your progress. Thanks.
