Gumby Does Cardio

I'll just be honest: I don't have the body I used to have. I have maybe two or two-and-a-half times the body I used to have. So while I still can put my palms on the floor when I do a forward bend, two kids could probably tap dance on my ass. This is no good. Recently I signed up to be a Team Beachbody Coach (hahahahaha, I know - ME? Seriously?) and N turned out to be my first "client." Well, he just took to cardio like I take to a bag of Hershey's Kisses when I have PMS.

I was shamed. So, I thought I'd do the 10-Minute Trainer. I thought, I can do anything for 10 minutes, can't I? Yes, like DIE, or so it seems. Okay, onto Debbie Siebers's Slim in 6. Oh, wait, that's six WEEKS, not six minutes at a time. For the time, I'm sticking with Debbie, but I'm also not giving up on my bend me/shape me routine. Yoga, Pilates, BalleCore, you name it, I'll stretch it.

As soon as my hamstrings stop shaking like delicious, delicious Jell-O.
