I finally took the cellophane off of Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred and popped it in the DVD player. Several of you have written about her rockin' three twenty minute workouts. I only did level one and I was breathing heavilly. The arms, legs and abs were all keeping up nicely, but I have a hard time with intense cardio, even in short bursts. I start wheezing pretty quickly. So I've decided to stick with level one for a week before even attempting level two. All this to say that mixing up your workout routine, even just a little, can be a pretty humbling--and healthy--experience.

Also, there's this: sorry Jillian, but the word "shred" always makes me think of food first.


  1. Haha, I love the shred analogy. Keep with level one as long as it challenges you. I've only done level 2 a few times...but I don't do it regularly. I feel like I'm always starting over.

  2. Oh, I could dive into that bowl of cheese! Cheese is my weakness! It's why I have Laughing Cow wedges EVERY DAY!!!

    ...ummm, were we talking about exercising? I got distracted. Yes, you can start out at the level that suits you. Soon, you will conquer the other levels!

  3. I've never done this workout because I don't own this workout but I think I could use a couple of workout DVDs so I think I'll look into this one unless others have a better suggestion.
