Shredding It Up!

Okay, for those of you who are out of it like I am, you may think I'm talking about cleaning up my desk and getting rid of old papers. Ha! I wish! No, I'm talking about a new (to me) work out that I'm doing with my girls. It's a Jillian Michaels DVD called "The 30 Day Shred".

I'm so out of it I didn't even know what the heck a "shred" workout was. Now that I've done it twice I'm still not sure. I guess it means being willing to abuse your body and get yelled at by Jillian for 20 minutes. Okay, I'm kidding. It's not that bad and she really doesn't nag that much.

I don't watch a lof of TV so I've never seen this woman in action but according to my beloved children she yells at the contestants on "The Biggest Loser" and runs a boot camp to keep them moving. You probably already knew that.

We're only on Phase 1 out of three phases but I like that it's doable and that it's only 20 minutes long. I can do just about anything for 20 minutes! It's a great workout for my upper body which gets neglected on my walks with my sister and/or the dogs.

I'll let you know if I make the entire 30 days and what kind of results I get with it. I'm all for working out if it means I can eat buttered popcorn when we watch a movie or sample all these treats we've been baking lately!

Good luck with that! You are such an inspiration to me. I am in the worst shape of my life, and often think I need to doooo something about that.
Thanks so much for coming by my blog the way you do and offering such kind words of encouragement. Your visits mean a lot to me.
