30 Day Shred

I like successful Biggest Loser stories. I figure Jillian Michaels and Bob...whatever his last name is, must be pretty decent at their jobs since these folks are losing lots of poundage. So I decided to check out the 30 Day Shred from Netflix. Most people who bought it on gave it good reviews. It's a 20 minutes work out incorporating, cardio/abs/weights.

It was pretty good. My darling hubby did it with me and concurred that it was a good workout. He distracted me quite a bit throughout the workout and made me laugh alot, so I probably could have worked out a little bit harder. I realize how much I know about exercise talk and proper form of lunges, squats and different moves. Hubby has never taken a class so the fundamentals were a little rough for him. I love him for trying it with me though!

My eating has been very good today. Last night we had dinner with friends and I had lasagna and bread and ice cream and a brownie for desert. There's a good feeling when you don't stress over one meal because you have eaten very many good meals in a row. When I'm struggling to stay on a good plan one more bad meal is cause for stress, but when I've been doing exceptionally well, I have the wherewithal to say "It's just one meal and it won't sabotage me" and it doesn't. Healthy Mind/Healthy Body.

I did my measurements today. I thought I had done the measurements when I started, but I don't have them anywhere on the blog. I'll have to look through my papers somewhere. We'll see where the weight goes from now on.


  1. It's so great that your husband is working out with you!

  2. I love it that my partner shows so much interest in my workouts and is so supportive of my efforts - it makes a HUGE difference!

    Well done for not stressing about one meal - I found myself in a similar situation on Thursday and still managed to lose 4 lbs by the following morning's weigh-in!

  3. Great job trying a new workout. I wanted to try the 30 Day Shred myself but was a little nervous it would be too advanced for me since I'm just starting out. I found earlier that it's actually on my free on demand list so maybe I'll check it out.

    Oh and Bob's last name is Harper. Looking forward to reading more of your blog.
