I have the runs

It's not an April Fools joke, the 30 day shred challenge is still on! Putcho before pictures on Instagram, turkeys! Today is the day. Hit that shit. Tag #nerky30ds.

If you want to join in and do Jillian Michael's 30 day shred, I'll totally email you all month and we can all motivate each other. If you haven't received an email yet today, then I need your email address! Hit it: meg(at)nerkyblog(dot)com. I email everyone who comments, so if you haven't heard from me at all it's because your email isn't linked to your Blogger account. Fix that shit! I want to build a community here, people. It's a setting in your Blogger profile.

If you're my Facebook frand, then I'll just message you.

Do you think JM can tell when people are afraid of her? Maybe it's the source of her power.

Someone said the entire 30 day shred is on YouTube, but I haven't looked because I already have the dvd. You could potentially save $9 though. You'll also need some free weights. Mine are 5lbs. 

And here's my before at 140.6 lbs:

This is the most naked I've been on the internet post-baby. 
And you know what? It's not awful.
Because I've lost 60 MOTHERFUCKING POUNDS.
I'm proud of that, but I still have work to do.

How much does it cost to have one of those spray tan machines installed in my house?

I plan on doing a half way picture on April 15 (tax day! SHIT, I need to get on that. Doing my taxes is absolutely, without a doubt, the thing I hate most about being a grown up) and then an "after" on April 30. You should, too! I slightly regret not taking fat "before" pictures. It would be a really solid reminder and comparison to look at now.

Speaking of over-extending, I was peer pressured by SkinnyMeg into signing up for a half marathon in less than 2 weeks, which I followed up with a shitty run. Fanfuckingtastic.

12 minute mile? No, please.

It sucks when you have a bad run, but it makes you appreciate the good ones. The shadow proves the sunshine. (Hey, was that an obscure Switchfoot reference? Sure was.) It did not make me feel confident in my ability to run 13.1 in 2 weeks, though. Hopefully my next one won't suck so many balls.

Want to run the Big D (so...many...puns...about...the...D) half? The price goes up April 7, so sign up and tell me! If you run with me, chances are I'm slower than you so it will be a total ego boost.

I kind of want to Daniel Tosh it and put 20 seconds on the clock and see how many Big D jokes I can come up with. How would you know I didn't cheat, though? Whatev, he totes cheats too. Oh well.

I also have two 5k's lined up for May if anyone would like to join if you live in Dallas-ish:

May 11 at Lake Ray Hubbard

The Gladiator Rock'n Run (that link is to Zozi, a deal site. Should get you in for $30) is a muddy obstacle course 5k and I'm nervous as shit about it ever since my friend, an ex-marine, told me she's nervous about it. I'm all, dude if you can't do it, then there's no way my clumsy-non-marine-ass can. Whatev, it will still be fun trying. Like Field Day in elementary school, except with drinking afterwards. Free beer, say whaaaaaat.

May 18 in Addison

The Tasty Run is a 5k where you stop and nom along the way. Sounds like a good idea, she said sarcastically. Hey, at least I didn't sign up for the one where you stop and drink beer along the way. Plus, your bib gets you into Taste Addison for more noms. All sorts of win.

Click the links to sign up, and then tell me! That way we can run together.

Holy shitstorm that's alotta running and shredding. If I'm not in shape and at my goal weight by April 30, then I fucking quit. Not really. I like working out now. What? Who said that?


  1. Duuude. I'll shred with you! Emailing you now..

  2. I would throw up if I tried to run and eat. That sounds way harder than any warrior-mud-obstacle nonsense. You get it with the shred, girl! And don't be hard on youself; you already have put in so much hard work and effort, your 'before' pictures look dang good!

  3. Lets shred it up! Running and drinking beer sounds like the best 5k. ever.

  4. Hey, new reader! I love Megan.. and she always talked about you, so I had to come check you out! I am starting 30DS today too!!!! I would love accountability on it, I tried RI30 and didnt keep up with it, so I think I will go back and forth between 30DS and RI30 so I will stick with it and keep it interesting!

    I will have to get my before pics tonight! :)

  5. Your before pics look pretty damn good, woman! You should totally have a six pack by the end of this month. I'll be happy with less pudge.

    Good luck on your half! You and SkinnyMeg are going to rock it out. Peer pressure is such a bitch, though. ;)

  6. Hi! I found you through SkinnyMeg. :) Ironically, I ordered the 30 Day Shred through Netflix last night, so I should have it tomorrow. I'll do it with you! I'm in California but I follow all the Dallas ladies - very inspirational! :)

  7. OK - I'm in! I haven't done the 30DS since last June - so I guess it's time to dust that s off! Wish I could be ready for the Big D Half, but I REALLY want to PR in my next half and I don't think I am there quite yet.

  8. Okay my fellow Meg/Megan?? I'm in on the 30ds challenge even though I am terrified and just threw up a little in my mouth.

  9. Hey NerkyMeg -

    I have no idea if my email is attached - guess we will find out! I'm not shredding with you but love the idea (it is on YouTube - totally checked it out). I just started the C25K today and a 5,000 push up challenge for April and a boot camp 2 days a week. I'm following though and hope you rock that sheot out!

    (I don't even know how to get my blog name to show up instead of my real name - I'm a work in progress!) getzgirlonfire.blogspot.com

  10. I get so bored with the 30DS! Maybe your motivation will help!

    New reader here by the way and loving you!
