I'll admit I was a skeptic....

*this is a personal post I am not reviewing a product*

I'll admit I was a skeptic when I bought 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels.  I am not a fan of her, nor do I watch the show Biggest Loser.  I have heard it was a good workout and it was on sale so I bought it.

I want to tone up more than lose weight so I was looking for something that incorporated strength training and cardio because I love to sweat I feel like I've really worked out when I sweating :)

I am on day 9 and I am on level 2 and it is STILL kicking my butt... usually your body will get used to doing the same thing everyday.  I am still sore in the mornings in some spots (apparently the ones I need to work!)  I was only on level 1 for 4 days only because i am already-well I thought-in pretty good shape.

I have come to the conclusion that Jillian Michaels is a pretty good trainer, at least she kicks my butt for 20 min a day!  However I am still skeptical that I will be "shredded" or "cut" after the 30 days.  as you see in this picture (I took it this morning before I shredded)  My arms still need ALOT of work!!!

I took it with my cell so it's not the nicest picture.

Are you doing the 30 day shred as well?  Comment me with your link and follow me on Twitter and we can do this journey together!!


  1. I love and hate that workout, but it really did give me results.

  2. I need to do day 7 today. I am pretty out of shape though so I am still on level 1. I do find it very challenging but not sure if it will help that much in the end. I decided to give it the 30 days and see what happens. A lot of my friends are doing it too it seems.
