Spells R-E-L-I-E-F

  • "Take savasana."

  • "That concludes our winter pledge drive here on public radio."

  • "One minute of abs and we are out of workout 1."*

  • "The 3-hour meeting was cancelled."

  • "OK, you can empty your bladder now."

  • "You'll be getting a tax refund this year."

  • [Child:] "Zzzzzzz."

*Forgive me, mother(hood uncensored), for I have skipped a day of shredding. I tweaked my neck somehow--not from the Shred--so I gave myself yesterday off. Today, though, it's back on. Even though I have company at home (a kid waiting out her "24 hours fever-free" quarantine).

Falling off the shred wagon is okay, not getting back on would be problematic! I give you credit for just doing it!

ha ha. I am not even shredding and I am relieved.

We waited out the fever over the weekend. I can't TELL you how relieved I was when she woke up for the second day in a row with a cool head. She claimed her tummy hurt. When I asked what it felt like she said: "It feels like I should stay home from school today." Yeah, right.

Dammit, gotta make that CPA appt. I'd rather shred.

I think you're all awesome for doing this.

Or child's pose. Love child's pose.

Does it count that I *watched* episode one of the Shred. I wanted to see what it was all about.

I don't think I could do it in my living room because I would wake the whole house with all that jump roping.

As I was bagging EIGHT lawn bags of garden detritus, I thought to myself that it was at least the same amount of work as 1 session of shred.

Ok. I'll ask. What's shredding?

Mandy said...

We all need a day off once in a while from exercise. (I'm on day 1,289, but who's counting?)

I love '3 hr mtg canceled' - all the day's possibilities open up.
