Jillian vs. Jillian

I am a little embarassed to admit that I have fallen victim to the "newlywed nine."  Since our wedding, I have really been slacking in the "eating right" and "working out" department.  We used to live about 5 minutes from a gym I had a membership to, and now that membership has expired, and I would have to drive onto base to workout at the gym...Insert lame excuse here....Honestly, I am too lazy to go to the gym.  I'll admit it.  I also don't like running, or being outside in the cold. 

So, I decided I needed to take charge by finding something I could do at home.  After researching some at-home workouts, I found the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred.  It had stellar reviews, and is only 20 minutes long.  I can handle that!  I bought the DVD yesterday and did the workout for the first time this morning.  It is only 20 minutes, but it kicked my butt! I am already sore.  I am hoping that working out with these videos, combined with eating out less, and contolling portion sizes, will help me to get in shape - and not fall victim to the holidays...Wish me luck!


  1. I love Jillian's 30 Day Shred...for the exact reasons that you said, it's quick, but it does actually give you a good work out.

    Good luck! : )

  2. DON'T DO IT! I couldn't walk for a week after I did one of her videos!
