Yesterday I decided to start day 1 of the 30 Day Shred.
Good decision? Yes. Sore muscles?? You bet.
The 30 Day Shred is a workout DVD with Jillian Michaels from The Biggest Loser. It's a 20 minute workout, but it is HARD. It has 3 levels with varying intensity, and it is the most legit workout DVD I've ever come across. (Except for P90x, but people who do that are cray-cray).
As an alternative to the Shred, I found this easy living room-friendly workout on Pinterest that follows the same principles:
I will definitely be trying this when I need a Shred back (I'm telling you - it's intense!)
The weight is dropping more slowly now (about 1-2 lbs per week), but the transitional jeans I bought to get me through are already too big (WINNING!!) and I've lost 2 inches in my waist in the last 2 weeks (HTH did that happen?!?)
If you have any great tips, recipes, or websites to share, let me have 'em - I've got a bridesmaids dress to wear in 4 months, and I am determined to be back to my old size by then! ;-)
