accountability

Tuesday, May 5, 2009

it hurts to type

it hurts to drive


it hurts to straighten my leg


it hurts to bend my knee

it hurts to lift my arm to drink a glass of water

it hurts walk

it hurts to talk

basically it hurts to move
and all this from day one (ONE!!), of jillian michael's 30 Day Shred.

i don't know who the hell i was kidding when i bought this but i'm gonna force myself to do the workout everyday.

EVERY

DAY

and that includes today, after my cinco de mayo festivities and in between the cavs game of course - multitasking is key.

you see that internet? that's what i call accountability.

because this post wasn't really written for any of you guys (sorry), it was posted for me.

i'm the one that needs to be held accountable.

  3. Yeahhh! You can do it! I'll be missing the game. My office has a cycling team and we're doing our first ride of the season tonight.

    Also, I biked to work!

  4. The Shred is amazing!!!
    I did each cycle for 10 days.
    By about day 5 of the first cycle you will start to feel like- hey- this is getting a little easy...
    Don't be fooled- day 1 of the second and third cycles, I was begging for death.
    It's fun once you memorize all the little comments Jillian makes.
    I also think she has a small crush on one of the other woman who are in the background working out- let's see if you can see the flirting as well...
    :) Have fun!

  6. Um, I think you just made me want to never exercise again!

  7. wow - i keep hearing about this and it's making me very tempted to buy it.

  8. I'm here to be the ray of sunshine! You'll never hurt as bad as you do today, as long as you stick with it. It will hurt less and less each time. =)

    Misery loves company. So keep it up! Once it's routine you'll feel guilty if you DON'T workout!

  9. OK if it doesn't kill you I'll try it.

    You Clevelanders are hardcore - you with the Shred and Narm with the fruit diet! Dang!

    You can DOOOOO ITTT!!!

  12. Good luck, you're like the fifth person out of blogs I follow that is doing this! I like the accountability thing, too....too bad it didn't work for me!

  13. Eek good luck!

    When you've conquered her video, check out P90X. I wanted to cry when I did it.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Go you!! Good luck. I've been hearing such great things about it.

  15. Been hearing about how hard this is a lot, I'm not even tempted to get one now ahaaahaha

  16. But how will you get your beer bottle to your mouth?

    I think this is all part of her evil plan. To sober all of us up.

    I haven't gotten this yet because I already can't move from all my other activities, but I hear it's pretty harsh. Good luck!

  17. Hm, you're the second person to comment about this video. Maybe I should get it. I need something! Flirty Girl Fitness just didn't cut it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I haven't heard about this one yet, but after you mentioned it, I googled it to find out more. There appears to also be a diet that goes along with it.

    Jillian frightens me, I am not going to lie.

  19. I bought it yesterday and I'm hurting too. Maybe not quite that bad but all the way around my arms and down my sides is super sore. But I'm with you. With you, me, bwp, and lbluca all doing it, I think we have accountability in spades.

  20. i shredded for about a week, and right before i thought it was about time to move up to level 2, i went and faceplanted on that tennis court, and i haven't been back since due to lingering injuries from that little incident. however, doc cleared me today... so i'm thinking me & gillian are getting back together soon.

  21. This post scares me about the 30 Day Shred. I have a feeling I should stick with my Wii Fit instead. You know, if I could motivate myself to use it more than every 2 weeks.

  22. I hate to tell you this but I'm on day 15 and it still hurts...

  23. I decided to start training for a 10K today.

    Go us!

    (Though the sidewalk is far less scary than Jillian, in my opinion.)

  24. I think maybe she's trying to look sexy, but really she just shot me with laser beams from her eyes.

    Good luck with that...

  25. I would like a post about me next.

  26. I applaud your foolish optimism.

  27. i tried this about a year ago.

    i made it to day 3. needless to say...i'm a giant pussy.

    hope you do better than i did!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm thinking of trying the shred. And I think I can make Jillian Michaels my b*tch. I'll make her beg.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I myself purchased the Shred from Tar-get. Went ok the first few days so I jumped up to the second level. I thought I was literally going to have a heart attack in my living room...

    I might hit it up again though now that I have the plum support group!

  30. Good luck!

    Way to go Cavs!! I heart LeBron!!

  31. I LOVE it. There is a celebrity shred on exercise TV (which was pretty unlike me to try out, but I was curious) and that is pretty good too.

    ReplyDelete
  32. thanks for all the positive words! (except for ben and deutlich - haha)

    and i successfully did day two, pain and all and surprisingly felt better when i was done, like it made the soreness go away... weird right?

    but that was a few hours ago, and the soreness has come back. crap....

  33. I assume this video makes my pilates video from 1999 look like a freakin spa visit.

    Yet I still can't bring myself to go through the pain. WEAK.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Keep going, it gets better. That's what she said!

    No but really it does. I am on day 6 today. I did a post on this workout today too and Jillian owes us for all this free publicity.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Damn- this shred thing is taking over the internets.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Does anyone have a bandaid? 'cuz this Plum is getting cut. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Also, be sure to stretch and hydrate. Don't be a victim of lactic acid fermentation!! (It's serious business!)

    ReplyDelete
  38. You are the 3rd person I know who has done this...and the other two really actually did stick with it. So I have total faith in you.

    P.S. that photo of Jillian scares me. No wonder you're sticking with it. I'd be afraid she'd crawl off the box and yell at me!

    ReplyDelete
  39. good luck lady! i kind of think jillian is a super bitch, but it's a good workout, none the less!

    ReplyDelete
  40. good for you! I think I'm going to have to try this 30 day shred thing.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I've heard this 30 day shred is a real son of a bitch.

    Best of luck. I'll be there in 9 weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  42. The Shred! It's soooo hard. It had me muttering "Jillian is a bitch" under my breath for days. But it does work. I had to stop when I broke my arm, but now that the splint is off, I'm going back in and I know it's going to be pain all over again.

  43. aahhh i just did her dvd last night for the first time! it's a killer :) i just wrote about it too!

    looooove your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh, I kind of want to try this dvd. I want to look like her.

    ReplyDelete
  45. It definitely works. I did it for 90 days starting 1/4, doing 2 weeks with Level 1, 2 at level 2, 2 at level 3, and then alternated 1, 2, and 3 every day for the next 6 weeks, and lost 15 lbs. Now I'm going really hard-core with P90X.

  46. You go, girl!

    I've got the 30 Day Shred and at first I was sore and stiff all over but I got used to it and now I've done all three levels. I don't do it every day (even though she says to) because it doesn't make sense to me to work exactly the same muscles on consecutive days. But, it does kick my butt every time I do it. Very efficient work out!
