30 Day Shred ~ Day 1

Oh Jillian, Jillian, Jillian.  You are mean.  Very, very mean

But thank you.  Thank you for being so motivating!

I took it a little easy, not knowing what to expect and all.

Last night was day 1 for me of Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred.  It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be.

Yes I couldn't breathe.  Yes I was sweating.  Yes I swore a few times. 

But I didn't die.

Jillian made me do push-ups!  I hate push-ups! 

But I did them anyway.

I kept thinking, if The Biggest Loser contestants can do this for several hours a day, than I can give up thirty minutes of my day.  And I am nowhere near the size of those contestants.

Today, my body is thanking me.  It's a bit sore, and will probably get worse as the day goes on, but I seriously felt so much better this morning.  I wasn't grumpy.  I got right out of bed instead of dreading getting out of it.

Tonight will be workout 2.  Wish me luck!  Oh...and The Biggest Loser starts tonight....talk about motivation!


  1. Way to go! I have a little energy back today and I'm hoping it holds out until I get home from work and picking up the kiddos so I can do day 2. I bet day two is going to be harder since we are sore! Ha! Can't wait to hear how it goes for ya!

  2. Keep it up - I am working on it too! I am going to mix it up a bit and do the BL Boot Camp tonight instead of shred - I need a "break" and the boot camp is similar.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I was definitely sore today before my workout and getting through it was tough but I feel great now. Keep up the good work!

  4. I finally made it to day 2 of the shred. How are you doing?
