30 Day Shred

Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans

That's right, people. I've joined The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Pants!! I'm not quite sure what I've gotten myself into, but I definitely need this!

The Sisterhood is finishing up their Shrink Into Summer Challenge and I've completely missed the boat on that one. But now, they're on their second round of The 30 Day Shred. They started last Wednesday, but today is my first day! I'm nervous and excited because I'm scared of Jillian I haven't worked out regularly and this accountability with the Sisterhood will be really good for me.

I took my "before" picture and my "before" measurements/weight. I popped in the 30 Day Shred DVD (which boasts of losing up to 20 pounds in 30 days), and I'm off. I'll let you know how it goes!!

** Update: I was about ready to quit after the second set of push-ups. And then Jillian said that there are 400 pound people who do this so I better keep up. That's why she's so scary motivating. I made it through. Only 6 more days 'til I weigh in and if I think about it in those terms (instead of 30 days in a row) it makes it easier. Plus it's only a 20 minute circuit workout...I just try to remind myself of that fact. ;)

please do me one favour and.......... eat enough!! ;)

That's like the #1 mistake people tend to make when they want to loose weight.. they try the hunger diet.. which only works in the bad way.

But yey for that excercise! I envy you.. hehe.. I needs me some discipline to do that too

Greetings from the netherlands!

I've heard the 30 Day Shred is an excellent workout. Curious to hear what you think...

Good for you....Where did you get the dvd? That sounds like something I should be doing. I want to shed a few pounds before my 10 yr class reunion in July!
