Default An idea for my summer!!! Thoughts?

School is almost out for the summer. This summer, I want to commit to my health and fitness, and return to school as a senior, looking great!

I already have the whole TurboFire set.
Since that's all I can afford right now (trying to save up for a car), I want to buy Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and the INSANITY Fast & Furious: 20 Minute Maximum Fitness Results Workout DVD. On Amazon, this will come to about $22 plus shipping, so I can afford that.

I want to incorporate TurboFire Fire and HIIT workouts, the 30 day shred, running on the cross country trail, and throwing in the INSANITY DVD. Maybe I can join the YMCA again to do some weight training for toning as well.

I kind of just came up with this, because I love all of these exercises.
However, I do have a question:
How difficult is Jillian Michael's 30 day shred? Can you give me some information on it? How many workouts are on the DVD and how long are they?

Please feel free to incorporate your thoughts and opinions, and TIPS on my plan for this summer.

There are 3 different levels on the 30 day shred. The levels become harder as you advance. Each one is 20 minutes long. You are supposed to start with level 1 and when you are comfortable with it then go to number 2 etc. I have tried level 1 & 2 so far. They are not easy workouts as she has you continuously working for the whole 20 minutes. Some exercises are not too bad but some are a little difficult at least for me.

I really like 30-day shred, when I did it the first time, I found it really hard to follow but stick with it and I was able to see the difference. The more I did it the easier it got.

One for every 5 lbs lost

Goal 1: 20 pounds - 6/16/12
Goal 2: Onederland - 7/28/12
Goal 3: 40 pounds - 8/25/12
Next Goal: 175lbs - working on it

I honestly feel like trying to do all that would over-stress your body. I'm assuming you'd at least be doing 2-3 workouts a day to fit it all in. The 30-day shred is supposed to be done every day. Although incorporating weight training is a fantastic idea! Even if you did 30 shred for the whole summer plus running you'd still wind up looking fantastic by fall.
Still trying again. Never completely quiting this journey.
