30-Day Shred

A few days ago I came to the realization I just don’t have the time to put into P90X – it requires at least a hour a day, 6 days a week…7 days if you do the stretching.

With some of you followers and my friends suggesting Jillian Michael’s 30-Day Shred, I looked into it some more, heard great things, and bought it last night @ Walmart for $9.00. I certainly can do the 30-minute intense workouts that the Shred provides.


With today being a snow day here in Rhode Island, I popped in the DVD and did her Level 1 sequence before lunch. I got a GREAT workout – there were even parts I had to stop a second (even though she tells you not to) to catch my breath or give my muscles a second to stop hurting. I did ALL of the abs moves without quitting! So, on my first day I think I did great and I’m starting to hurt in all the right places (legs and abs) – to me that’s a good sign! So happy I bought it.

I also bought her Yoga Meltdown (also $9 @ Walmart). I love yoga and it’s effects, but a 90-minute class is a big time commitment. I don’t have the most routine schedule right now either.


So – I’m figuring I’ll do the 30-Day Shred (not sure how quickly to advance to Level 2 and 3) and try doing her Yoga Burn 2 days a week on top of it.

Thank you followers and friends for this suggestion! Will report back on how I’m doing.

Hooray! You will love it. I'm sure it's different for everyone, but I advanced myself to the next level after I could do level 1 or 2 without feeling like I needed breaks. After a few months, I would mix it up and use each level at random to keep the muscles confused. Keep us posted! :)
