The Shred.

My entire life I've been an athlete.  I played Varsity softball all through out high school and I even ran Cross Country to keep me in shape in the off season. I pitched so I actually practiced year round 4-6 days per week. However, I am totally the type that hates the gym and needs someone to make me follow through with a resolution to work out.  So I'm asking all of you to help hold me accountable for what I'm about to endure.

Tonight, I will be starting the 30 Day Shred.  The last time I tried this I lasted three days. Pathetic. I am determined though to start the Shred and stick to it for 30 days and I will post my results and reviews weekly. I have heard and read nothing but positive things about the Shred. My goal is to not lose pounds but to gain muscle mass and tone my tummy, arms and thighs! Before I stopped playing softball I never thought about needing to work out. I was always in great shape and softball kept me fit. Now, I may not look like I'm in horrible shape but I am and I'd like to be able to run a few miles without sounding like I'm having an asthma attack! I think the Shred is the first step in the right direction for me. 

I found several before and afters online and I'll admit that I'm impressed.

Have you tried the Shred? Did you like it? Did you see results quickly? What is your work out routine and how to do you stick to it?


  1. I bought it, but haven't done it yet! I am excited to try it though!

  2. Good luck! I've heard about this video too. Once you get through this I'm sure it'll be a big boost for working out regularly. I am just barely getting my lazy butt back into exercise videos. I have always been athletic in the past but I quit the gym a while ago and haven't made my way back.

  3. I tried it - just like you I would do it for three days and then quit. I was just thinking today that I need to do it for the next thirty days solid. Maybe you will be my inspiration!

  4. Good luck! I've heard good things about this and I just might try it. It might help me in my situation as well.

  5. I have never done it but wish I could actually stick to something like this!! Good luck :) Can't wait to hear how it goes!

  6. I fail every time i start this. i last about a week. It's a decent work out though :)

  7. The first day I did the shred.. I puked!

    ha ha ha!

    It gets better! I promise!
