Get In Shape Girl!

Does anyone remember these toys from the 80s?

I used to love all my Get In Shape Girl gear, especially my ribbon wand, although I didn't twirl it nearly as well as Will Ferrell. I just began my post baby workout regime this week so my mind wandered back to these toys for some reason...guess my fitness obsession started at an early age!

I began with a run on Sunday with Jamie and how sad, I only made it a mile before I had to stop and walk. I suppose that's not SO awful, considering it was already 90 degrees out and it was my first serious attempt at running in about 6 months, but man, it is hard to believe this time last year I was training for a half marathon.

I followed up on Monday with the 30 Day Shred dvd and did that again today, and Jillian Michaels is totally kicking my ass this week. I felt like I'd been hit by a bus yesterday when I woke up and I can't decide if I love Jillian or hate her. Either way, it is nice to be back in the swing of things. Hopefully I can fit into some pants with a real waist soon...what a goal!

I'm interested to hear your thoughts on 30 Day Shred after you've done it for a while. Hit me with an update and let me know if you think it's working for you and if so, is it worth the insanity?!?

I totally had the "Get in Shape Girl" stuff. I rocked the sweatband :)

I had the lavender ribbon for the rythmic gymnastics Get In Shape Girl, and I loved it! I thought I was hot stuff at the ripe old age of 10.

I did 30 DS in April prior to getting knocked up - it was tough but doing it daily will def do the trick. Jillian annoyed me when she kept saying "I don't want you guys to phone this in." I'm like, shut it. You're just standing there in a weird double sportsbra, I'm doing a plank. I would do each stage once or twice w/ sound and then I'd mute it and listen to music or something.

And don't feel like you were holding me back Sunday. 1 mile was just right for me too.
