30 Day Shred Challenge

Have you heard about Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred DVD? Well let me tell's hard, very very hard (well at least in my opinion). Before we moved I bought the DVD, not realizing how popular it is, and decided to try it. Then we moved and I haven't continued the workout since.

While perusing one of my favorite websites I came across a Weight Watchers group. I figured since I had just joined WW at work I might as well join the ladies on this group too. Then I noticed it, the post about a 30 Day Shred Challenge. Melissa from Melissa's Adventures in Kids, Knitting, and Weight Loss (not necessarily in that order) , is scheduled to be in a 5K run this weekend (Go Melissa!) and proposed this challenge to the group. I decided that since I have been horribly lazy lately and I am always up for a challenge I would participate.

So here are the details:

- The challenge starts October 18th (Sunday) and will end on the Friday before Thanksgiving (November 20th).

- Each Workout (there are 3 different levels on the DVD) will last 11 days. There will be 10 days of workout and 1 day of rest. You pick the rest day.

- Take pictures before and after. You don't have to show these to us unless you want to.

- Take measurements before and after.

- Make a goal. Whether it be inches, pounds, lose the lovehandles....whatever...just make one

-You will need at a minimum the DVD and dumbbells. You might want a yoga mat if you have a hard floor. I recommend starting out small on the dumbbells (3-5 lbs.). I found my DVD at Target.

- You will look hotter by Thanksgiving and amaze all of your family. AND, the workouts will still be fresh enough on your mind that you won't gorge yourself at Thanksgiving.

Now.....I just have to find the DVD in our pile of boxes.


  1. WOO HOO!! We are going to rock (or die of exhaustion). Glad you're doing whichever one with me!

  2. I definately have to get that DVD! I've been dying to try it!

  3. It's going to be rough but the end results will be well worth it.

  4. I would like it much better if you could just lose the weight for me, lol. Good luck!

  5. Yippee your officially apart of the Shred-heads! There is a huge group of us bloggie friends who are doing The Shred! Im on level 2! Its a workout thats for sure!!
