Shredding with Mom

in All Posts

Hello again! 


My mom and I headed downstairs for breakfast around 8:30 to take full advantage of Embassy’s free brekkie.


I loaded up on melon and honeydew, scrambled eggs, and a tiny scoop of hash browns.


Plus an English Muffin with cream cheese:


I ate most of it, but I’m not very impressed with this Embassy’s breakfast.  The Embassy we stayed at during the wedding was much better.  Still, it was free!


We came back to the suite and I popped in the 30 Day Shred.  My mom watches The Biggest Loser so she was curious to see what it was all about.


I even convinced her to do a little of the Shred with me, but she gave up after the warm-up. 🙂


She could be a fitness model!


She took a few embarrassing pictures of me shredding when I wasn’t looking.


Walking plan push-up:


Squat with dumbell row:


As you can see, I can’t squat very far down because of my crappy knees.  It’s still a killer workout and I was all sorts of sweaty when I was done.


Time to hit the road!  More sightseeing to do!


Have a great Saturday!

    Ha, I don’t even think my mom could have made it through the warm up, so props to yours! And my mom totally would have tried to do it in jeans too!

    And yes, YOU could be the fitness model!
    Have a good day, sister.

    I never really had any knee issues (knock-on-wood) but since the shred I can feel them! those squats and lunges ARE difficult!!!

    I have pretty much taken a full week off from shredding, which is rediculous because it is only 20 minutes, but this week was brutal. I am contemplating starting over!

    Your mommy is too cute! I don’t think my mom could even get past the first minute of the shred! Enjoy your Saturday!

    Aw your Mom is so cute! I do 80’s workout videos with my Mom, I swear she’s had this one Denise Austin VHS (yes, I just said VHS lol) for so long that Denise’s voice sounds like Darth Vadar now.
