I finished 30 days of Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred yesterday - but I'm not close to being done with it. I plan on continuing the workout throughout the summer. My goal on May 1st was to get down to 130 lbs (starting from 138) and to tone up. About half way through the month I weighed 129 lbs and this morning the numbers on the scale read 133. As I said in my initial post about the 30 Day Shred, the last time I did this exercise program I toned up but didn't see weight loss because I was putting on muscle weight. I think that's what is happening again. Mr. G and I have definitely seen a change in my body. My stomach and legs are much more toned and my arms are stronger (thankfully, Noah weighs 15 lbs now!).
There are 3 levels of workouts in the video. The idea is to move to the next level after a week. I didn't follow this plan. I did two weeks at level 1 then a week at level 2 and a few days at level 3. Now that I've done the 30 days I think I mix it up throughout the month of June. Maybe Monday, Wednesday & Friday level 1 and Tuesday, Thursday level 2. Weekends level 3? I'll post my progress.
This is a great workout if you have a busy schedule and don't mind using weights. It's only 20 minutes a day. Twenty Minutes! Can't beat that. I also do light cardio every day and have pretty decent eating habits so it works for me. I think it's time to buy a double jogging stroller so I can start jogging in the mornings and get serious about bathing suit season. :- / I can't believe June is here. Where does time go? I'm pretty sure it was just Christmas.
