Oh Jillian!

Those of you who know me IRL know that I am not a fan of exercise. But, alas I have realized that I'm not naturally blessed with a slim physique or fast metabolism so I work it as hard as I can. I try to keep my workout routine fresh by changing it up every few months. I recently started running (well, actually it more of an old people jog). However since the spring I hadn't been doing much strength training so I decided I needed to pick that back up. I knew of Jillian Michaels from "The Biggest Loser" and I've heard great things about her 30 Day Shred so I decided to give it a try. Let me just say I don't know if I'll actually lose 20 pounds in 30 days, but it truly kicked my ass! I consider myself reasonably fit, but I was panting for dear life half way through the program. I'll definitely try it again. I haven't purchased it yet though, I got it off ExerciseTVondemad. I'm going to see if I want to stick with it for awhile before I throw down my $10. But, for anyone looking for a quick intense workout, her dvd is definitely worth checking out.

Ok. I'm pretty sure I read every single one of those tags and not one on hair! Come on, help a sista out, lol.

Jillian is serious! But with all the DVDs I have, hers is the last one I turn to. It's just not any fun and her style is kind of brash. You've inspired me to try it again because if you can get past all of that, you really do get a good workout. Oh, and don't feel like you need to stick to level 1 till you master it. Jump around--that helps with the monotony.
