Default 30 Day Shred in August anyone?

I'm going to an all inclusive beach resort vacation in September, and I'm close to my goal weight, but I need the goal toned body to go with it. So, starting tomorrow, August 1st, I'm taking on Jillian's 30 day Shred.

I'm curious to see who else wants to join and maybe we can have some sort of a challenge going on.

I'm really looking to tone up and I know that the video delivers results. I just gotta promise to stick to it for the 30 days.

I'm gonna weigh in and measure 4 times during the month.

Once tomorrow, once after the first 10 days, and so on until the 30 days are done.

I hope some of you will join and we can make it a little more fun

I have done the 30 days shred and it worked. I didn't stick to it, but I want to do it again and stick to it until I reach my goal.

Count me in.

I've just started it too! I took my measurements yesterday and I'll be measuring myself every 10 days. I'd love to join in with you

I want to get to my target weight in the next 30 days, I'm hoping i'll be able to lose 13lbs in that time and lose at least 3 inches from my hips

Just did Level 1, I did it all the way through, but stopped halfway for 2 mins to drink a gallon of water! I realise how unfit I am, it was NOT pretty.

Here are my full measurements that I did yesterday:

Calves 15''
Knees 17''
Thighs 24''
Hips (widest part of my body) 42''
Waist 32''
Chest 34''
Upper arms 11.5''

Current body fat% = 27.5% TARGET = 25%

I'm wondering if you guys have any of Jillian's other DVDs? I bought 5 all together last week as they were so cheap on Amazon. I have 30DS, Ripped in 30, Extreme Shed and Shred, Killer buns and thighs and 6 week 6 pack. I'll probably do one a month in that order. Then I'm hoping to get Brazil Butt Lift and ChaLEAN

I have 4 of Jillian's dvd's.

1. 6 week abs, which I have not been done a full 6 weeks yet.
But that is one of my goals is to do the entire 6 weeks.

2. Ripped in 30
3.30 day shred
4. Killer buns and thighs

I have tried them all, and they work. This time I am focusing on diet and
exercise. The first time I did 30 day shred I lose 15 pounds in 3 weeks.
So, it works. I want to eventually use all of the dvd's and hopefully reach my goal weight and measurements.

Thanks Littlebumblebee. You said this time you're focusing on diet aswell, and I'm just wondering if when you lost 15lbs last time you did 30DS did you do anything else or just the workout?

I'm walking but I've just ordered a Zumba Kinect game and I was thinking I could do this for 30 minutes a day too. I just feel like I'm not doing enough with just 27 mins a day.

I'm also on a low calorie diet which I've been doing for about a month and I've only lost 4lbs without the exercise, so I hope this will boost my Weight loss. Just about to do Level 1 Day 2!

I also did 20 minutes of pilates. And I exercised the entire 30 days without taking a break. This month I plan to take breaks.
Are you counting calories?


I am counting calories, and I added in pilates.
I try to exercise for at least 50 minutes each day that I do exercise.

I am counting calories, I'm aim for 1300 - 1400 a day, mostly I have the upper limit, for my weight and height my BMR is 1395 so that would be why I'm only losing half to 1lb a week.

I'm really focusing on the things I eat too so eating lots of whole foods and trying to limit processed foods as much as possible. I've also started eating a small serving of almonds and cashews a day and making sure half my plate is filled with salad/veg.

These 30 days are just the start of what I imagine will be a very long journey to my goal weight. But I don't really care how long it takes, this is a lifestyle change and not a quick-fix diet.

Losing 1 pound a week is great. As long as you are losing, you will reach your goal. How many days are you using 30 day Shred?

Well done great results already!

I'm hoping to do 30 day shred for as long as it takes to become an 'easy' workout, but i'm having to supplement the workout with running and zumba as literally the day after I do it my muscles kill and its just too painful to do the workout the next day. But the way I see it as long as I'm doing something everyday I should still see results. I weighed myself this morning (very naughty, I know) and I'm down to 145.8 from 146.6 so over half a lb in 5 days! I havent been 145 for over a year so i'm very happy!

Congratulations on the weight loss! That is awesome.
And you are right, as long as you exercise and eat right you will see results.
How many days a week are you exercising?


I exercise 5 days a week.

Im trying to do Jillian at least 6 times a day,
I still only eat 1200 calories, that's what worked best for me.

I have 30 Day Shred and figured in September I'd do Ripped in 30 until I go on vacay. I should be toned enough lolol

She really is crazy!!! I swear her out every workout and it's hard but it's so worth it. On My fitness pal, there's a thread where people have posted all their result pics.

If that's not motivation, I don't know what is!
