The Results of the Shred Challenge

   As you may know, Mark and I took on the 30 Day Shred by Jillian Micheals. We did the program as she recommended, doing her workout 4 days a week and cardio 2 days a week, taking Sunday off. Doing the video this way, it took us 7 1/2 weeks to complete. The videos are posted, for free, on Youtube, making this a great workout for anyone on any budget, as long as you own weights already (we were able to pick up another pair of 3 pound weights for $2 at a DI!).
   This is a total Jillian Micheals video. She will yell at you. She will kick your butt. Make no mistake, you will work harder in these 20 minute videos than you do normally in an hour at the gym, but the results were AWESOME for me. I ended up losing 14.8 pounds and 18.5 inches total. I feel like that is AMAZING for 7 1/2 weeks of work!

This one makes me really cringe! 

 After pictures taken last week at the Jazz game
 My face looks much slimmer. Mark says I am "deflating". 
  We will be starting Ripped in 30 on Wednesday. I am hoping for even better results.
