A Date With Jillian: 30 Day Shred

30 Day Shred

Don't you love our Cow Skin Rug! 
For a couple of weeks I have been wanting to find a good at home workout video to do on my days that I do not go to the gym.  I have heard so many good things about Jillian's 30 Day Shred from online comments, and I have since heard from people I know that it is a great video and has great results.

I first heard about the 30 Day Shred about 5 months ago from a blog that I read call Mama LShe had great results from doing this video (along with healthy eating of course).  Another fellow blogger, Holly, at Where We Can Live Like Jack and Sally blogged about her 30 Day Shred Challenge today too! Be sure to stop by their blogs and share the love!

I purchased the DVD for 9 bucks at Walmart. (I can't help but think of Honey Boo Boo's " A dollar makes me holler!" saying) The DVD says you may need a yoga mat (if working out on a hard surface) and 5lbs hand weights. 

I was so excited to have this new DVD for me to do at home. In my head I was thinking that I was going to rock this workout! I have been working out for 3 months/ 3 days a week hardcore. I have been using 20-25 lbs weights, this was going to be a piece of cake workout. WAS.I.EVER.WRONG!! I think I got over confident and bought 8lbs hand weights. These are a killer!
Jillian is a beast! I did her 20 min workout and was so exhausted when I finished. She definitely gave me a run for my money. Day 1 on level 1.....I was sore! I could not believe how effective her 20 min workout was.

Butterfly lifts
Killer Ab Workout!

I am looking forward to seeing how Jillian is going to workout my body for the next 30 days. (i.e I rotate gym and at home workout days) 

I'm headed for vacation this week and will be taking this DVD with me.  No excuses right?!  Not even on vacation.

For all you followers...all 12 of you, do you care to join the challenge?  This is a quick but intense workout that we all need...regardless of if we need to lose weight or not.  Let me know if you would care and join in on the 30 Day Shred!

Cheers to Healthy Eating!


  1. I have this DVD! You just inspired me to actually use it before the wedding! Love your blog :)

  2. It is weird how quick the 20 min DVD can change the way your body looks. Go ahead and do the DVD, what do you have to lose right? Let me know how you like it.

  3. I was SO sore after doing the work out just one time. Crazy! :)
