Mission:: I want Muscles

I noticed a huge drop in my metabolism when I entered my 30’s.  No longer was ‘chasing my kids’ in my 20’s an effective workout for me.  Bummer.  Suddenly I was seeking and reading material on strength training.  I learned it was even more important to build muscle mass because my body was starting to lose it quickly.  Darn it.  After 10 years of….ahem…. ‘research’ I am now in my 40’s [just barely].  Let me tell you.  I tested that theory of [no] strength training for you all for 10 years and have concluded that…Yes it is important.  You’re welcome. 

No strength training results in a super weak core.  [I learned that word in my many years of research]

Then my sis-in-law came to visit and made me invited me to do a version of the bootcamp she teaches.  That’s when I realized my 10 year old son may be stronger than me….

So last Saturday night I went to my favorite [dangerously close to my house] Target and perused the fitness isle.  I found this

What I know about Jillion is that everyone hates her.  And apparently that’s a good thing because she claims to ‘shred your body’.  yay me….

So I put the $9.99 life changing DVD into my cart along with a couple of hand weights feeling good.

Cheer me on in shredding my body [because that’s a good thing for my core ;)]!
