Y3 - 256/365: Ryan's 30-Day-Shred
Forget Jillian Michaels...at least that is what Ryan intends for me to do. In a pretty assertive way he decided to show me his version of push-ups!
Seriously, I'm at a loss for what to do. I can't do it while he's napping because hopping all around downstairs shakes the unstable floorboards. Matt suggests to simply do it when he's awake and in the room with me...yeah right! I doubt Matt has endured jumping-jacks with a 23 lb toddler hanging from the bottom of his t-shirt, nor has he had to fight said toddler off his 5 lb weights when doing squats. Most importantly...push-ups are hard enough on a pair of already weak wrists without extra "luggage" on one's back.
I guess my little guy just wants me to feel the burn...and boy, did I!
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
