    1. ok, just watched the videos. you look a bit shweaty and disheveled in the second video. i think that means it's working! get your shred on, booty karen.
      you & me, toots, we're gonna get thin & svelte, but alas, no taller. i'll hip hop my abs and you can shred yours and we'll see how it turns out. i did my last video 2 days ago & i still can barely walk up steps because my inner thighs are in agony. i fall when i try to sit on the toilet because i can't lower myself daintily down to the seat. it's awful!

    2. Sherilin, that made me snort out loud. Not too long ago, I totally overdid it on squats and suffered the same problem. Lowering myself to the can was also so painful, and it was almost as though the muscles wouldn't even WORK at that point!!! I know the pain of which you speak, girlfriend. We are going to be FREAKING AWESOME.
      Wait...we already are. I don't mind being 5'5". I feel fairly tall somehow. Still, I can't wear a maxi dress at this height...

    3. i'm 5.3 and i never feel tall. even children often remind me of how short i am.
      i think it's funny that you & i both did a vlog today! i think i've only ever done one before and that was when i did the snowflake cutting bit.
      i'm hoping my thighs start to work again tomorrow.

    4. i forgot to mention how funny it was when you ate that little piece of chewy beef! and it slowed you down so you couldn't proceed with your planned lines because your teeth were full of meat. teehee!

    5. you're 2 inches shorter than moi! Bah, but what does this mean? Not much--someone either has to be MUCH shorter or MUCH taller than I for me to really be aware of it.

      Au contraire: not CHEWY beef, DRY beef :) Ha ha...well, it wasn't so dry, but it wasn't exactly succulent any longer.

  3. Haahahahahaha!!!!! Oh my god! *wiping tears*... Shit, you are funny! I especially like eleven seconds of sweaty panting Karen! Heehehehehe!!!!!! Oh, never change, woman.

    1. I couldn't quite convey just how fucking shredded I felt after that. Shredded. And not in a hawt way.

  4. My God, what did that lady trainer DO to you, Karen?

    I think I should do some exercise... But not if it means I can't speak, that's no good at all, talking being one of my few pleasures in life.
    And you're doing this 29 more times????? xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    1. Yes! 29 more days of PURE SUFFERING! Still, it sounds better than 30..........slightly...

      Bah, you already look fine, and can actually FIT into the vintage clothes of your dreams! Me? I have to wait around for some big girl to give up her magnificent dress from the 50's. Oh wait, there were no big girls in the 50's. Silly karen.

  5. I so want to be Fab at 40! I'm about to turn 39 so maybe I should start? Hummm. 29 more to go!

    1. well Elizabeth, now is the PERFECT time to start! While there's still LOTS of time! Or, you can get DOWN TO THE WIRE like myself here, and scramble, last minute-style.

      Sigh.

  6. I"m sorry but I was laughing my ass off cuz I was all, "Move that thing closer Karen...how much did you pay for that?!?" And then you were all, "Yes, $9.99!!!"

    That Jillian should supply an Epi pin with those DVD's. You know, so someone can inject it right to your heart to get it beating again. Think Pulp Fiction if you're at a loss here...

    1. yeah, and first I'll draw the little red dot so everyone knows where to stab me when I keel over!!! Oh man, Lizbeth--whoever saw Pulp Fiction must have that scene BURNED into their brains!

  7. do you have to use your shoulder, arms or backside being shredded?

    Unfortunately at the moment if I wanted to get shredded and used those I would end up in the ER.

    Can I use my other body parts? You actually inspired me....yo.

    1. It is with SINCERE regret that I have to tell you, Melissa, that yes, you do need to use all those body parts. This is because Jillian Michaels is a sadist, and has NO sympathy for the kinder, gentler, softer people of the world.

      It's going to be a long month.

      Yeah--how is your arm/shoulder these days???

      Delete
    2. The arm/shoulder is healing nicely....almost a freaking year!!!!!!! but it is my huge backside that is killing me now! LOL

      Delete
    3. yeah, but DAMN woman--you were laid up for a long time! Don't be hard on yourself.

      Delete
  8. Karen you kill me. Shredded. I am going to do some nice walking on the tread mill and leave the hard work to you. Hang in there.

    1. Alaina, I HATE hard work. I am a GENTLE person who likes solitude, and sunshine, and a nice power walk and that's about freaking it. I had doing some move that makes my whole body feel like garbage, while some tv personality is barking at me to KEEP GOING! DO NOT QUIT! DO NOT GIVE UP!

      Blech. I'm a coffee in the afternoon sunshine kind of girl at heart. This is going to blow.

      Unless I actually do get SHREDDED!!! (what a horrible expression)

    2. Did I just send you a comment? Or did I lose it all through simple failure of brain-to-finger communication? I had what I thought was a really good comment going.

      Delete
    3. yes Jeanne, alas, it was eaten by cyberspace.
