I did it, I did it, I DID IT! My first 30 day affair with Jillian Michael’s is DONE! I have completed all 3 levels for 30 days of the 30 day shred. This may not seem like a super huge thing to anyone who regularly works out, but I never work out and I’ve never stuck with it for this long, so I’m pretty proud of myself!
Before I get to the results, I want to look back at each level.
Level 1: I had no idea what to expect. The first day, I wanted to puke, but after day one it got better and after day 5 or 6, my soreness went away! I finished up level 1 and was ready for level 2.
Level 2: Level 2.. I didn’t like you. You were hard, you had a lot of planking, and you got boring, extremely fast. Midway through level 2 is where I started to lose my motivation and momentum. I wasn’t liking this anymore, I just felt bored I guess. So after a 2 day break, I wrapped up level 2 and was ready for my last level and home stretch!
Level 3: After completing level 2, I figured level 3 would pretty much kill me. Day 1 of Level 3, I was so scared of what Jillian was going to make me do! Honestly, Level 3 was pretty easy for me, almost as “easy” as level 1. I don’t know if this is because I had built up some strength and stamina over the first 2 levels, or if it just was easier.. who knows, but I got through it without any problems. I only had to do the modified versions on the traveling push ups and half of the time on the first plank move.
So, now that I’m done…the results.
Weight: 138 lbs.
30 Day Results
Waist: 33″ (-4″)
Arms: 9″ (-.5″)
Thighs: 18″ (-2″)
Weight: 133 lbs. (-5lbs)
And… the before & after picture.
So I don’t think I took very good before/after pictures, and I’m not sure if you can see much difference in them, but the biggest difference that I’m seeing is my legs, butt and arms, but I am seeing a difference in my stomach, just not as much as everywhere else.
Would I recommend this to someone else? Yes! I would. If nothing else, it gets you to set a goal and get you in the routine of getting a workout in most every day. I really like that it is a short workout, about 25 minutes, I just don’t have time between working full-time and taking care of Lennox, to get a full hour workout in. So if you are looking for a quick workout, try this one!
I have ordered Shakeology to give a shot for a month, as well as Jillian Michael’s Ripped in 30. I have heard good things about both, so once we get back from our Vegas Vacation, I will start with all of that. I may only do 5 days a week rather than 7, we’ll just see how it goes!
