@bluegrassbunny – great idea! I’ve always liked that DVD, and I’m incorporating some levels of it into my September challenge too! I’m doing Jillian’s 30 Day Slimdown that she created for ExerciseTV, it’s a rotation of Shred, NMTZ and BFBM. Today I have to do BFBM, and I’m not really looking foward to it, since it’s my least favorite of the rotation! Good luck today!

I have my before/after results from Ripped in 30 on my blog, I’ll PM it to you since I don’t think I can post it here!

I am doing it everyday as well.  PAIN!!! I am hoping I will get some results in the next month though. I just want to tone up (especially my arms).  I am doing other arm exercises on top of it.  My arms are the main thing I am self-concious about! UGH I hate them!

@sunshine1810 – if you are concerned about your arms, I’d recommend Jillian’s No More Trouble Zones, it really focuses on the arms. Jillian even says in it “your arms are the part of your body that is naked in front of strangers the majority of the time, so we want those suckers looking HOT!” haha!

@7SEVENJ9: Thank you SO much for the suggestion! I will definitely try that!

I definitely *want* my arms looking HOT, but I think it’s going to take a while haha!

@sunshine1890 – it’s definitely a great workout, a little longer than the ones in Shred, but it’s my favorite Jillian Video to date. Enjoy!

Another plug for Jillian Michaels.  I got in shape for my wedding by doing 30 Day Shred, No More Trouble Zones, or 6 week 6 pack every day, combined with enough elliptical time to make a total workout of at least 60 mins/day.  My short arms, which always seem chubbier than the rest of me, were slim and defined by my wedding day.  I have triceps under that jiggle!

@7SEVENJ9: Jillian always says funny things about getting in shape–I got my friend/BM into her workouts, and we think this line is the best: “People are always telling you, just take the stairs!?  That is a FALSE MESSAGE OF LETHARGY, and it isn’t doing you any favors!”

@Pomapoo – I love that line too! She’s got so many good quotes, cracks me up. I’m about to go do Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism (ugh, i hate it)… wish me luck!

I was going to start 30 day shred today!!  Yay for partners.

Are you going to incorporate better eating into your workout?  I was thinking about doing the Special K diet.  I know its not the healthiest and its not guaranteed to keep the weight off, but I could slim down pretty fast before the wedding.

Now, I’m more motivated to start today!  Yay!

@BluegrassBunny:My friend does weight watchers.  Her food is always so delicious. I think 5lbs in a month is great.  Slow, but steady progress!  🙂

I am so sore!!  But I’m such a cheater.  At one point, I stopped the DVD and just laid on the floor for a good 5 minutes.  Jillian Michaels kicks my out of shape booty. Ahh!  Gonna be a long next 29 days!

I’m already dreaming of ice cream so that’s what my prize would be, but I think you want something of lasting value.  Hmm.  How about a fun weekend trip?  Or a new outfit?
