Anyone want to join me?

I'm tempted, but I can't keep up with the Swedish House Mafia chat - far too modern! grin.

Have done the shred once before on a MN thread and got into stage 2, but then gave up sad. I might even dust off my old spreadsheet.

Am also joining local gym today, mainly for DS's benefit as he wants to swim, so I'll be doing that too.

Id love to, need to shape up. BUT I did 10 days in November and had to stop due to seriously injuring my neck. But scared to try again.

ornellaia Mon 31-Dec-12 11:14:32

I'm in too, was planning to start on Tuesday anyway - I might actually do it if I've publicly said I will grin

I have started early as I know I'll be having a few days off in the middle, and am supposed to be running tomorrow. Huffed and puffed my way through level 1.

I'm in. So when is everyone starting, tomorrow or Wednesday?

mellowcat Tue 01-Jan-13 11:14:56

Day one and I didn't phone it in!

Good luck and happy new year everyone.

I'm starting tomo. Not looking forward to getting the tape measure out first sad

ihatethecold Tue 01-Jan-13 11:42:32

I'm starting wed.
Are we putting measurements on here or just keeping a record for ourselves? blush

LivinItSmall Tue 01-Jan-13 11:48:31

Can I join in too? Need some extra motivation to actually get started (for about the fifth time I think - have never made it past level 2 blush)
Won't be starting til Wednesday though. No chance I'm doing it with DP in the house!!

I always sign in to these things, do 2 days and then there is a REALLY GOOD REASON why I can't do it again.


But I mean it this time.

Are we starting this evening? Count me in, and hopefully I will post again on this thread! Am not posting stats or anything though!

Day 3 done smile Although hard, it did seem marginally easier that the first time. To help with the fitness I am also quitting alcohol and chocolate for January as well. Masochist, me?

bigTillyMincePie Tue 01-Jan-13 12:35:59

I am going to give it a go, I think...

Did it this time last year to get fit for skiing. Just have to get my head around getting up earlier and doing it before everyone else appears downstairs...

Tomorrow, then.


pregnantpause Tue 01-Jan-13 13:32:10

I'm in. my inclination is to say I'll wait until my measuring tape and scale arrives, but that's really another excuse isn't it? so I'll start today and measure tomorrowgrin good luck girls

drmelons Tue 01-Jan-13 13:40:12

Go on then, have just put on jeans for the first time since mid dec and it was quite shocking! Am also turning 40 this year and know that I will be so depressed if I am this size and this unfit then!

Will order tonight so will be a few days late- so not let me use this as an excuse!!

JustAnotherLlama Tue 01-Jan-13 13:45:29

Can I join too? I can't start until tomorrow though as my copy is at home... I might need a gentle shove reminder.

MrsMangoGingerbreadhouse Tue 01-Jan-13 13:59:11

I really really should, I'm just struggling trying to figure out when to fit it in as DD has dropped her last nap now, and I won't want to do it after dinner. Hmm, I could try setting my alarm to get up 45 mins earlier to shred and shower <wibble> I will have a think if there's a better way I can fit it in without risking me turning the alarm of and rolling over to go back to sleep! hmm

chewingguminmyhair Tue 01-Jan-13 14:03:34

Do you have to do it every day?

Bicnod Tue 01-Jan-13 17:16:41

I'm starting tomorrow, can barely stand up today so no way I could shred...

gallicgirl Tue 01-Jan-13 17:21:16

I was thinking of joining in with peeps but does this involve, you know, moving around quickly and maybe sweating a bit?

Can't I just eat less and give up booze?

RyleDup Tue 01-Jan-13 17:22:35

Right I've got the DVD player working, so I'm ready to start the shred tomorrow. <gulp>

Is it hard? (not actually played the dvd yet)

gallicgirl Tue 01-Jan-13 17:24:04

Have just googled.




Bicnod Tue 01-Jan-13 17:29:12

Yes it's hard. I could barely walk downstairs the first time I did it (in the summer).

Hopefully this thread will force me to stick with it.

Mini eeek.

pregnantpause Tue 01-Jan-13 20:04:50

donesmile whilst I'm tired and confident I'm going to hurt tomorrow, I feel really good about myself for doing itgrin

Done it smile. Didn't think I was gunna, as despite being in bed by 10.30 on NYE I still felt rubbish this morning thanks to the dcs up in the night.

Feeling good about keeping it up.
