Anyone else out there doing the 30 day shred? I'd love to hear from others doing it or those that have done it for some motivation.

Tomorrow is level 1 day 8 for me and so far I've dropped 1kg and 1 inch off my waist. Not bad for week one and I'm feeling good Smile

I'm adding in an extra couple of hours cardio this week as well to see if it helps to make a difference.

Feel free to post your results here and anything else you did alongside in your diet etc that you would recommend if you have already completed it.

I did the 30 day shred and didn't see huge results, but I also didn't change my eating enough at that time to see a difference. I think if you eat well and do these DVD's, along with maybe a day or two of extra something, walking, running, or whatever, you can lose.

I like Jillian's Ripped in 30 better, it is 4 weeks instead of 3 and I just like the way it's set up better. It's still the 3-2-1, but there are 3 strength exercises per circuit instead of 2. I think if you complete 30 day shred and enjoy it, try Ripped in 30 after and you'll like it.
Goals for 2015:
Start a running program
Sign up & complete a 5K- Done
Get a bike and use it!

I tend to switch it around some. I've done 30DS several times but never really measured to see if it helped. I was doing Zumba daily and have not switched back to Zumba 4 days and 30 DS 2 days. I have done Ripped in 30 and that is definitely more intense. 30DS has gotten a little too easy for me - I will use it for the rest of this month and then go to RI30 for October. I also have the kickboxing DVD but I can't remember how difficult it is since it's been awhile. I also have Peak 10 workout DVD which is challenging. I try to mix things up b/c my body gets used to the calorie burn and won't let me lose weight - either that or I'm not eating enough. I also do weight training 4 days/week - just joined the gym to increase the intensity of that too.

I agree that the JM DVD's are okay, but you probably need to do more than just them! Unfortunately...

Yeah mars2kids, I've got ripped in 30.. watched level 1 and it looks alot harder, but hopefully once I've completed 30DS I'll be ready for it. I will definitely be glad to see the back of 30DS level 1, its getting a bit tedious and alot easier (day 8 complete).

Did an extra hours cardio earlier so I think I'll sleep tonight lol! I've been keeping calories at 1200 tops & drinking loads of water too which is probably helping.. before I was eating alot of crap and take-outs with zero exercise.

Well done mcnole, your doing loads.. weight training of any sort isn't easy. Think your right in changing things up a bit.. keeps it interesting.. I'll do that after 30DS and RI30 are done and I'm alot more capable. Keep it up guys!

wow, i just watched the video. Yes, I watched it! I'm 66 and this will be interesting how I modify it for my big frame. Thank goodness, I walk 2 miles every day but not to THAT intensity. Will start it tomorrow morning.

I plan to start back on the 30DS on Monday, September 23. I've done it before, but I did not follow through with the entire four weeks. So, I really need to get back on track. I do like that each level is only about 20 mins long in length. I find myself getting bored after 30 mins with DVDs. I am trying to lose about 15 lbs. I think my biggest obstacle that I am facing is lack of energy. Have you found any type of energy boosters that work for you? Let me know!

I hear you. I tore some ligaments in my thigh and I can't walk for more then 20-30 minutes without pain. I know I need exercise but I'm kinda scared. Getting old sucks!

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
Every 50 days...it is too easy to lose hope when you reach a plateau. Every 50 days is good and you know if you are sticking to your regime. I can tell by how I feel and how my clothes fit.

Get serious about food and exercise or forget about losing weight!
Great tips, it is true that its mostly in the diet! Muhc better to make lifestyle changes than to go on to quick weight loss diets.
