Do You Shred?

Inspired by Kenz at All the Weigh {if you haven’t stopped by to visit her yet, you MUST do so now ~ she is a fabulous inspiration to any and all who are unhappy with their weight}, I decided to join many others in BlogLand and try out Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred. I think there a quite a few of us out there “shredding” at the moment ~ Amber, JennyKate, Rhonda and ShortMama are just a handful that I am aware of.

I have to admit that I bought the 30 Day Shred DVD about three weeks ago {I found it at Fred Meyer for $9.99, and I believe it’s the same price at Amazon}, but only just started it this week. Today will be Day 3, and while I’m not entirely looking forward to it because I’m a little sore and tight from yesterday’s Shred, I don’t think it will be incredibly difficult to motivate myself to get my workout clothes on and let Jillian kick my butt for 20 minutes. I mean, c’mon, isn’t Jillian’s body motivation enough?!? :o)

My goal is to complete the program by the end of February. I don’t believe that the 30 days need to all be in a row in order to be completely effective ~ I think it’s good to give your body a day or two off to recover, and I know that if I try to make myself do the workout every day for 30 days, I’m setting myself up for failure. I don’t even think I’d make it a week! Five or six days in a row with a day off to rest sounds great to me.

Have you tried the 30 Day Shred? Thought about it? I’d love for you to join me ~ we can share our progress and successes!

Hey Heather! Yay, you are shredding too. ;0) I love that. Amber and I both have shredders on our side bar. I'd love to add you if you want.

You will be glad you did. I try to do it 6 days a week, because like you I think our bodies need a break to repair and recover. This week will be the first day to only get in 5 days. I'm okay with that.

I'm seeing some great results I hope to share soon.

Yay, for shredding!

I have heard a lot of buzz about this program, I'll be curious to see what you think when your thirty days are up. I myself like to ease into fitness and am doing a Denise Austin book right now. I'm giving copies away if you decide to try something else. But from what I hear you get amazing results with Jillian. Hey if I can find it for ten bucks maybe I'll have to give it a try too. It's just that workout videos usually aren't my thing, I do like my elliptical a lot and watching trashy tv while sweating away.

I have it and am trying to get the ooomph to do it....I need to do it. Need to.

Maybe I'll try it tonight? Gotta clean my family room first so I have room though....
