30 Day Shred
athingthateveryoneneeds · 28/03/2018 16:25
Has anyone completed this? Just did day 1 today, though the toddler kept getting in the way.
Just wondered how realistic it is to think I can look like those ladies in 29 more days.

Hi, I started it late last year.
I really got into it, didn't realise I'd done all sessions when I should have started on one!
However it was good and worked..then I got back.winter came and I hid under jumpers and gave up. I need to start again really!

I bet it worked if.yiu were doing all the sessions in one go! :)
I do like how fast paced it is. Less chance for me to get bored.

I’ve been doing it as my rest day from running (on a big health kick/ skinny for summer plan at the moment)- I must have done level 1 3 times and level 2 three times as well- today I noticed little biceps appearing on my arms, plus I have noticeable definition appearing on my stomach. Not exactly ripped, plus my fat hides a lot of my definition, but I would say it’s making a small but noticeable difference. If you did it every day for 30 days plus followed her diet plan I reckon you’d notice.

I did it last year, and definitely changed my body shape! I was more lean and defined, although there was still some work to be done! Keep at it, I do think it is worth it, although I found it did get boring after a while.

I've just finished it - I'm overweight by about 3 to 4 stone but although I've only lost 6lbs I have def shrunk my waist. - dress I couldn't do up before now zips up properly

I love the Shred - when mine were babies I'd stick them in their jumperoos and go for it - now they're older and under my feet I can only do a 10 minute workout before they play up Jillian is very motivating though and I liked the 'back to basics' approach, no fancy gym equipment needed. Definitely helps with no toddlers around unfortunately, I don't notice her getting clonked on the head with a Thomas the Tank Engine when she lies down to do sit ups...

I need to lose 6.5st and managed about 8 minutes but had to stop because the sides of my feet were hurting and felt like they were on fire. Is this normal?

Are you still doing it?
I started three weeks ago but only manage to do it three times a week. I’m looking to get fitter and more toned rather than worried about weight.

I did the Shred right through a few years ago and in combination with following a paleo-style way of eating (lots of protein, veggies and fruit; no refined sugar, gluten, dairy or grains) I spent a year in the best shape of my life! Then Christmas came, then some bereavements and... the taking good care of myself stopped and I never quite felt ready to pick it all back up in the same way.
Somehow with a holiday in the sun booked at next half term, I have ‘accidentally’ found myself doing the shred again and while I’m only loosely following paleo principles this time, I am sticking to the No S way of eating. I’m (counts on fingers) 23 days into the shred (now on Level 3) + No S diet and really starting to feel fitter, stronger and more hopeful again. I have a fancy corporate dinner next week which would have previously given me angst about what to wear but for the first time in a few years I am looking forward to choosing an outfit. Thanks Saint Jillian genuflects
Sorry for the essay - I guess I’m just basically saying it works best in conjunction with sensible eating and yes, it can really yield results
