30 Day Shred Challenge

In this post, I shared with you my intention to do a 30-day challenge to complete Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. Syl at Live, Smile, Run intended to host this challenge, but has since changed her focus to reach a weight loss goal. Well, that is not going to stop me. Nope, it is not. Beginning on Monday, November 16 and continuing through and including December 15, I am challenging myself to do the 30 Day Shred each and every day and I'd like you to join me.

So, here's the deal. I know a few of you have expressed interest in participating in this challenge and I'd love it if you did, in fact, share this little challenge with me. This is the deal:

There are three sections of the DVD: Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3. Each section is 20 minutes. Now, if you want to do the challenge, all you need to do is ten days of Level 1, followed by ten days of Level 2, and. lastly, ten days of Level 3. All you are committing to is 20 minutes a day. That's it. I'm not asking you to do more than one level each day (although I know that is how some people do it). Just 20 minutes.

I'm even including one "get out of jail free" card since we've got Thanksgiving in this 30 days. If you feel that you can't exercise on Thanksgiving, use your card and commit to adding 20 minutes extra to another day. You'll still have 30 days worth of 20 minutes and it will all be good.

So, what do you think? Got game?

Join me! We can do this!

Let me make it even easier for you do join this challenge. Instead of committing to doing the DVD with me, you can commit to doing 20 minutes of exercise everyday for 30 days. Just do it...20 minutes a day for 30 days of any exercise at all. Come on...we'll be done before Christmas and maybe, just maybe, we'll keep ourselves from gaining any holiday pounds and start the New Year with resolve rather than regrets!

Leave me a comment or send me an email if you're wanting to join in. Misery loves company!

I'm totally in! I'll find a way to do it. God does that for us. If I cant do my work days, then I am definitely in with my days off. I'm there with ya girl!

I'm in but you have to be my Jillian Michaels if I start to show signs of quitting. Sometimes for me, all I need is a quick swift kick in the butt to remind me why I said yes in the first place. Will you do that for me? (I promise not to hold it against you if you scream in my face - only over this though, if you scream in my face over bad fabric choices I might be a little miffed.)

Very cool! I have started biking every day at least 6 kilometers. It's funny to think in kilometers as an American! I'm doing it rain or shine - yuck. But it's really cool to see that I'm not alone in my plans. Huge thumbs up to you for going for this.

Have to admit. This dvd does work. My knees suffered a little with all the squatting but it is very satisfying to had achieved a goal.

May have to come back and join you :}

Sande, that is so good to know! Between comments here and a few offline emails, we've got a number of people who are committing to moving their bodies for 30 days. I'm excited to begin!
