Not Quite Shredded…Yet

OMG, Jillian Michaels, or JM as I like to call her, you are kicking my butt! 

So I went through quite a few different exercise programs- P 90X, Yoga, Pilates and now the 30 Day Shred.  While each is good for different reasons, my favorite is the Shred.   I feel like I’m working really hard, but I don’t have to commit too much time.  Also, in addition to JM making me work hard, my dog also steps in to act as my own personal trainer:

However, as much as I think this is a great workout, I’m developing a little bit of a love/hate relationship with the Shred. 

Wow, I’m done after just 20 minutes of a work out  (love it).  Oh crap it’s only 20 minutes which means that I don’t have an excuse for why I can’t do it (hate it).  My ass is so sore, I’m walking like I’m 80 (hate it).  But wait…are those more defined muscles on my arms??? (love it). 

 Then, after about a week of doing level 1, I’m not hyperventilating when I do jumping jacks and I think I might be ready for level 2 (love it).   Oh wait, level 2 wins.  I suck at this (hate it).  I’m dripping sweat and my legs feel like jello, but this must mean I’m getting skinner, right? (love it)

I really just want to come home from work and have a glass of wine, but JM’s picture on the box is staring at me and making me feel guilty (hate it).  I think I might be ready for level 3 (love it!). 

So verdict?  The Shred is the way to go.  I HIGHLY recommend it.  What’s your favorite work out?

Love The Shred!!! It kills me! And it goes fast enough so that I don’t want to stop nor do I get bored. 🙂
