The 30 Day Shred


Vaughn and I are on day 8 of the 30 Day Shred of Jilllian Michaels. We heard about this little DVD from Will and Chelsea. They said it was kicking their trash and they could see results.

It is divided into 3 different routines, each one building upon the other one with strength, cardio and abs, in twenty minutes. You do each routine for 10 days and then go to the next and so on.....And the promise is that you will loose 30 pounds in 30 days. So we figured, "what the heck?" The first day wasn't bad, just a bit awkward getting used to the routine, but then HOLY CRAP.......the second day comes and you feel like you are back in high school during the 3 a days football camp, or in my case drill team camp, with screaming calves, burning thighs; basically everything hurts from the hair on your head to your small little toe. OUCH! It took me 3 days to be able to walk without pain. And during all this you don't quit the exercising, you have to do this DVD everyday.

Now that we are over the week mark and on day 8, the workout seems a bit easier, but then we hit level 2 very soon. I heard it is a killer. There are the days when Jillian says her little comments and Vaughn and I both yell at the TV. Funny huh? Two grown adults yelling at the TV. The even funnier part is that Tyson wants to do it with us. He is all into doing anything that mom and dad are doing, because he wants to be so grown up. He uses his Wii paddles as his hand weights since we won't let him use ours, which doesn't always go over the best. Anyways, the whole family is trying to be healthily. We'll recap in 30 days and see if this worked or not. And we will finish all 30 days....
