Santa (aka Russ' Mom) brought me The 30 Day Shred with Jillian Michaels for Christmas.

I tried it this morning.

Oh. My.

Reasons The 30 Day Shred is maybe not for me:

1. I don't really care that much about 10% body fat. I just want to fit into my size 10's (don't judge, Size 4's!).
2. I did *maybe* 10 minutes and I feel like I'm going to throw up all those mini Reese's peanut butter cups I ate this morning.
3. It was a workout just to get throught the 2 minutes of jumping jacks.
4. I have never been able to and probably won't ever be able to do a push-up...not even the girl ones.
5. I would rather do all cardio than any strength training...ever.

This is going to be a process.

I hope you can find some parts of the workout that you will like.

Even when I was in the best shape of my life, I still couldn't do a push up. I hate those things with a passion!
I like strength training and cardio.

Don't give up on The Shred.
I started the DVD in June.
It took me 90 days to complete the 30 Day Shred. (It took me that long to recover/walk without pain btw workouts). I promise you will see results!

Lisa - I am also starting the Shred program, although not until Jan.1. Let me know how things go in the coming weeks. I plan to share my progress or lack of progress on my blog.

I have the Shred too. I used it when I started working out again back in April. At first it was really really hard, but then after my body adjusted to it I really started to like it. Stick with it, it takes a while, but you will get some great results!

I bought that DVD after I had Katie and it is still in its plastic sitting next to the TV. I guess I should get it out and do it - maybe that will be my New Years Resolution...so it's rather hardcore then, huh?? And...I want to fit in my size 10s too!!!! :)
