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!

      I just finished my third day of this workout! It is getting easier, but is still kicking my butt! I added 5lb weights today I am already seeing results!

        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 bought it almost a week ago, but I'm starting it tonight. I'm soooo excited! I bought it at target for $14.99, but I saw it last night at Walmart for $9

            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 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

                      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!
