Happy Monday! How was the weekend? Yours truly spent most of the weekend cleaning cupboards. Party animal right here!
Okay, okay. No, my cupboards did not open an Alice in Wonderland-like experience for me, though, I am certain if I got into any of my cupboards, I would hallucinate. So, yes, I lived life to the fullest this past weekend.
In case you’re keeping track, or not for that matter, I am getting married in 17 days.
Am I ready for this? I mean I am ready to become married to my wonderful fiance, but there’s still a LOT to do.
One of the things I have to buckle down on is making sure my dress fits! I have not done the best the past couple of weeks with my workout schedule.
That’s where the baddest of all Reality TV trainers comes is…
One Week Shred
If you’re like me, you have a love/hate relationship with Jillian Michaels. I mostly love her though. I think that she’s effective, motivating, and an overall genuine health and fitness professional. With that being said …as Jillian would say, her “shred” series is off the chain! I don’t know if you have ever tried her 30 Day Shred, Shred It With Weights, or Shed and Shred, but if you haven’t, homegirl works you out!
I, for one, am delighted that Jills put out her latest
torture dvd: One Week Shred. This latest video is two (approximately) 30 minute workouts to be done each day, for 7 days. Jillian claims if you follow her meal plan and the workout schedule and give it your all (whatever that might be) you can lose up to 7 pounds in 7 days. It ain’t a cake walk. Mmmm I’m going to talk about cake this week, but as far as this workout goes; it is challenging!
The 30 minute workouts are comprised of a morning session of resistance training, where you will need weights between 5-10 pounds and a mat, and an evening session of cardio where you will be dripping with sweat for sure. I just completed my morning resistance training session and I felt it. Boy, did I ever! I am going to stick with it through next week and see if Jillian can really deliver what she claims she can!
If you would like to take the challenge along with me, you can rent Jillian Michaels One Week Shred for 7 days here via Amazon instant for $3.99. I’m a trainer, and I can tell you, that is a PHENOMENAL rate for a week’s worth of sessions!
Whatever your goals are, be it a wedding (ahem), reunion, holiday party, improved strength and confidence, or because you want to jump start your weight loss journey; you can take the initiative to put this into action each and every day.
Monday is great place to start!
