Due to the excessive pain (I am pathetic, I know), I took a week off, but I am going to try to start up my 30 Day Shred again this week...wish me luck!!! All I know is that if it hurts, it means its working so I def have faith in this program!

Good Luck! Keep at it!

I agree that I think this program will work if you push yourself to complete each exercise and stick to it! good luck everyone!

Just bought it through amazon.ca! Am excited to receive it. I also got Shiva Rea's Vignasa Flow Yoga workout, apparently it's also a good one!

I will! I'm going to use the 3 pound weights that I have. I think that will be good to start.

I work out regularly, so I'm interested to see if it kicks my butt (I totally expect it will since its a new routine!). I'm going to do some measurements tonight and maybe (if Im brave) so "before" pics in my bikini :)

Ok ladies - I did the video this morning! I really liked it too :) It seems like she knows what she's talking about with the 3 min strength, 2 min cardio, 1 min abs. I also really, really like how she does combo strength (arms and legs together). She says that when you just do arms then just do legs, you dont burn enough calories. Combine them and you can cut your workout time in half while keeping your heart rate up!

 

I wore my heart monitor, but I guess I didnt push the "Start" button so it didn't give me my calories burned sad.gif I will do it again tomorrow and let everyone know how many calories it tells me.

 

Oh - and the hardest part for me was using the weights. Andi, I dont know how you did it with 10 lbs - I could barely do it with 3 lbs!! For some of the shoulder exercises, I grabbed even smaller weights (until I build up some strength). Guess I really need the strength training, haha.

For some reason I never wondered how many calories I was burning 'till last night LOL So I'm curious to hear your findings!

I am so kicking myself in the butt for not buying 5# weights last night while I was out and about. 3# is getting to be too easy....but I didn't realize how easy 'till I got home and did the workout sad.gif

I think I will watch the intro tonight so I can start the 30-day shred tomorrow morning :) I have BD pics in about 45 days, so I'm committed!

The cover says "Lose up to 20 pounds in 30 days" - if I can lose 5 I will be happy!

Just keep in mind that the diet is VERY important as well.. either way, you'll definitely see cuts & feel it in places you haven't before.. but you get even better results w/ a decent diet. I am a FAN of Jillian Michaels! good luck!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
