I was sitting on the beach with a girlfriend back in June talking about how it was getting too hot to run outside (Note that it wasn’t too hot to go to the beach though. Priorities, people!) when she told me that I had to try Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred videos. I know. You hear “workout video” and picture Sweatin’ to the Oldies or even better, Prancercise. Me too. And the last workout video I tried to do was Insanity with Anderson. DISASTER. I had a mini-almost-heart attack about 4 minutes in. Not kidding. My excuse for not continuing was 1. That almost heart attack and 2. Some of those workouts are close to an hour long. I don’t want to spend an hour working out. Anyway, I did the 30 Day Shred videos for about two months this summer when it was just too hot outside, and I loved them! They’re really high intensity and involve a lot of the same moves as P90X and Insanity but are less than 30 minutes long. I can handle that! I’m back to running outside now but definitely recommend these videos. And if you get bored easily (like me) you can switch between all three workouts. I did that a lot.

PS-Should I call them workout DVDs instead of videos? Ha! Oh well.



  1. based on these pictures…I don’t think you’re EVER gonna need spanx for anything! YOU BEAN POLE! Super cute outfit! Way to go on the Shred. I did it at the apartment for a little while but I didn’t think the man below us appreciated the jumping so I stopped! HA!

  2. You go girl! 🙂 Love this outfit! To me, the shoes really make the outfit stand out. Miss seeing ya’ll, let’s get together sooner than later.

  3. I’m with you – I hate workout videos! Katie does them all the time though and loves Jillian. I can totally run for an hour but the thought of sitting in my house for an hour doing a workout video makes me go nutty. You don’t do half or full marathons do you?

  4. LOVE the outfit! You always look great.
    I’m a runner too. I have to agree it’s way to hot to run outside in the dog days of summer. I’ve never joined a gym before but I did this summer pretty much to run on the treadmill (and I can’t stand that). But it is nice having a fun blow on you while you’re running and watching E! 10 inches from your face..lol! I’ve done some videos but with a 1 1/2 yr. old and 5 yr. old it doesn’t work to well! ha!

  5. I LOVE this outfit! The awesome thrifted top, the bright skirt, the SHOES – all sooo cute!

    I have heard so much about 30 day shred, but I think I’ve just been afraid to try it. The way you describe it doesn’t sound that bad… I’ll have to give it a shot!

  6. I fell asleep duinrg it, but woke up to watch the last 45 minutes! I can never sleep long on those dang buses. By time we got back, I was so nauseated because I was so tired.
