In Which I Learn I Am Nothing But a Girly-Mon

These arrived on my doorstep this afternoon.

I've known for a while that I've been, oh...shall we say lax with the strength training/target area type workouts. And several of my areas need targeting.

So carpe diem and all that. I tried 30 Day Shred with Jillian Michaels (AKA The Biggest Loser trainer) first.

And here I am a few minutes later sucking wind.

Yeah, it's a good workout. Level 1, that is.

  2. i love this title! seriously- home video workouts make me work harder than any training run i've done....which is likely why i don't use them. i'm lazy like that. :) awesome self portrait!

  3. Yes, I was quickly reminded that I do have muscles and have not been using them. They are mad at me now.

    Seriously though, I think this is going to be an excellent exercise DVD. I'm giving it 2 dumbbells up!

  4. I got the 30 day shred too! I'm too afraid to check out levels 2&3!

    Levels 1&2 are also on "On Demand" if anyone has it.

  5. My sister in law is also doing the 30DS video. She posts synopsis of her workouts that are kind of funny. Her link is Aubrey on my blog if you want to see what the future holds! :)

  7. I did the Introduction workout of the Core Fitness dvd last week and ended up feeling tired and sore. How embarrassing is that?

  8. I bought that Jillian 30 day shred DVD at Target a few weeks ago, and I have been too chicken to even open it up. I know it will kill me!

  9. So I've done 2 days of the Shred plus bits of the other DVDs. I'm quite sore and have declared today a rest day.

  11. Good to know this is a real workout. Some of the at home ones you never know what you are going to get. I love Jillian so I might give this a try. Hang in there and keep us updated!

  12. I hope you'll give us your reviews on these workout videos. I'm usually disappointed by them if they're too cheesy or the music is terrible so I'd love a good recommendation.
