anyone still shredding?

i haven't talked (or bitched) about the 30 day shred lately. wanna know why? cause i haven't been doing it.

I HAVEN'T BEEN DOING ANYTHING!!!

i feel gross. i feel disgusting. i think that working out has become such an integral part of my daily routine that i definitely notice a difference in how i feel subconsciously about my body if i haven't done it. great, now i have to be all accountable and shit to my body. i did not want this.... something else to feel guilty about.

anyway, i hate the 30 day shred. in a good way. i think it works. i think it's challenging and i love that it's 20 minutes. my ideal goal is to play volleyball about 2 times a week, and then do the shred the other 3 days. at whatever level i feel like doing that day. which means i'll probably never feel like doing level 2. level 2 can suck it. ha

i'm writing this post because i have to get back on the wagon. i have to hold myself accountable for doing this. 20 minutes is not that long. it's not too much time to carve out of your day. so there are no excuses. it's not even about looking hot. it's about feeling hot. apparently this whole working out thing makes me feel good about myself. CURSE YOU 30 DAY SHRED!

Nothing motivates me to work out like summer. Hello, bathing suit season!

I've got a post coming at the shred site tomorrow about restarting the 30 days. Sunday I started again with Level 1, Day 1. Stupid addictive Jillian. :)

And even for guys, bathing suit season motivates!

suck it up woman. If this fat girl can shred, you can too! Of course, I had go back to level 1 because level too kicked my ass. I mean really, fat girls shouldn't be doing those moves in level 2. We can't handle it!

Motivation is an issue for me, too!! There's always some excuse to avoid it, but working out for 20-30 minutes a day IS worth it when you feel so much better after it. Eek. I just need to tell myself that when I want to sleep in those extra 20 minutes!

Wow, that was awkward said...

I thought this was about snowboarding or making confetti, but then realized it has to do with working out, a primitive act I vaguely remember doing once upon a time when my ass wasn't so firmly planted on the couch.

That's it! I'm going for a run tonight!!!!!!

I found your blog thru a yahoo search for 30 day shred blog... pretty sweet, huh?

I shreded for the first time last tuesday, and then again on saturday (yes, i was in that much pain!) and then again today (I refuse to workout on my bf's days off)

I definately need some encouragement, and im here for you too, buddy! :-)

I was doing the Shredding for a while, then I lost my motivation. I'd made it up to Level 2 and was despising Jillian and her angry eyes and her flared nostrils. I might have to jump back on the Shred machine too, since I've developed a deep loathing for my treadmill. Here's to feeling hawt. ;) Good luck.

Welcome Back, Bitch.

tell me where I can get the shred. perhaps I will borrow it from blockbuster.com and see how it works for me.

I kind of quit it a few days ago. I started an internship and have been kind of busy with that. Plus, yesterday (my first day at the internship) I wore heels and was walking around for 8 hours so now my feet and ankles are kind of awful and i'm not even sure I would be able to do much of the jumping stuff. I definately need to get back to doing it too.

20 minutes? Damn did I get on the wrong fitness trend. My friend convinced me to do power yoga with her. The classes are 90 freaken minutes long.

Get your ass to work! Man, I missed reading your blog. :)

I've been the same way. Ever since we got back from Vegas I've been pretty much lazy. I did get a Wii Fit for Mother's Day, so I've been trying to log a bunch of time each day on there. I've only shredded once.

I've found that as long as I do something, I'll feel better. It's the days I don't get my ass off the couch that I feel like shit.
