A Thank You and a 30×30 update

I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for their positive comments on yesterdays post. Although I am happily remarried and I have a beautiful son with Chris I still have my ex in my life and that can really get me down. I like to make a clean break when I am done with relationships but when you have a child with someone that just isn’t possible. Hearing all your kind words and knowing that others are in the same boat made me feel like I am not alone and that there is no shame in my situation. For years I felt that being divorced was taboo even though it is quite common. There is a certain disappointment that you have in yourself and that you think others feel when you can’t make a marriage work. I must admit I felt even worse after I remarried and had Callum. For some reason men can have 30 babies with 30 different women, but if a woman gets remarried and has another child they are judged. I heard one mother say that she was going to stay with her husband even though she didn’t love him anymore so they could have two children together. She couldn’t stand the thought of having two kids from two different fathers. Comments like that hurt! After yesterdays post I got several comments from women who are in a similar situation. I am so happy that we can all talk about this openly now and not feel like we belong on an episode of Maury Povich.

Okay enough emotional stuff….

As you know I started the 30×30 Fat Loss Shred by Lauren Gleisberg last week and I wanted to update you on my progress. So far I have lost 2 pounds. I am pretty happy with that considering this past weekend was the Grape and Wine Festival here in Niagara. Grape and Wine is Niagara’s equivalent of Mardi Gras. So much food and wine!

The workouts are still challenging but enjoyable at the same time. I do like the fact that it takes less then 30 minutes and it doesn’t take a lot of fancy equipment, as most of the moves are done using your body weight. What you will need is a step, some hand weights and a yoga mat.  What I do not like is how much I sweat. I hate sweating but by the end of the workout I am always drenched. I suppose this is a good thing. It does show how hard I have worked.

Overall I am really glad that I gave this 30×30 workout a chance. I can already feel a change in my body and my endurance is definitely improving.

Have I convinced you give the 30×30 Fat Loss Shred a try?
