Tonight I start a new 30 day project.... Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred!  I'm doing it with my best friend Courtney and my sister Annie.  Courtney agreed then told me she realized that she has oral surgery it may not happen that her 30 days and mine the exact same 30 days, but at least I have some accountability.  

Jillian Michaels: 30 Day Shred [DVD]

I don't know what to expect exactly.  From what I've read, it's high intensity interval training.  I used to do that in while I was in chiropractic school.  I would meet with a group of guys in the morning 6:45 cause class started at 7:20 and we would do burst training.  20 seconds of effort until you physically couldn't bust out one more push-up etc. followed by 20 seconds of rest, repeat 3 times and break for 2 minutes while you set up for the next exercise.  It works.  It really does.  Don't believe me, do a set of leg exercises then hit the stairs and make sure you are holding onto a rail so you don't bust your face falling down.  I am actually excited to start it.  I could use a little bit of something, especially since Zacman decided he wanted to be thinner and is losing weight considerably faster than me.  Damn him and his fast man-tabolism.  So, pray for me and my gradually softening muscles as we get whipped back into shape.  Prepare for me to be shredded!
(and....should I actually start to LOOK shredded, be prepared for a sickening amount of "look how awesome my body is" picutres.) 


  1. Abbie good luck with the shredding! I rode my bike today for the 2nd time in about 10 months (due to the bum hip) but I too am on a quest to regain the muscle that has seemingly vanished....I feel like an old lady :( Keep us posted on your progress and keep the rest of us motivated! again good luck and have fun!

  2. I haven't done this particular workout but Jillian will kick your butt! Holy cow she is intense! Good luck and have fun!!

  3. THis workout is extremely intense! I got it after I had Reed, and holy cow....I about threw up the first time I did it. It does make you feel really good afterwards, and it's only 20mins, which that is the best thing about it. It's not incredibly time consuming, but you still get your butt kicked! Good luck, and let us know how it goes, because after this baby I'm doing it so I will need some serious motivation!
