Body After Baby: Results of 30 Day Shred

Our 30 day challenge for The Body After Baby Challenge series technically ends tomorrow, but I thought I’d go ahead and share my results from it now. If you would like to share yours with any pictures or stories, please send me an email with your information and I’ll consider putting it on the blog! People loooove before/after stats and experiences. 🙂

So. We did the 30 Day Shred with Jillian Michaels.

Here is my little review/final say on it!

I ended up doing this workout about 17 days out of the 30 days. I failed. Ha. I know you’re technically suppose to do it 30 days in a row- hence the name 30 Day– but I didn’t.  But that’s okay! I used a 5 pound weight for all the exercises, which I thought was about right for me.

I thought level 1 was a little too easy. Level 2 was hard but not too hard, and I thought level 3 was much harder. I ended up doing the majority of my workouts with level 2. I thought the video was a little boring. I usually muted it and listed to music while doing it.

I started doing the workout upstairs in our spare room, which is on carpet. After realizing I wasn’t able to do the cardio exercises to their full potential (on carpet and without shoes) I moved to the hardwood floors which was much better. Wearing tennis shoes and having a hard surface made the exercises harder.

I lost 5 pounds during this month and I think if I would have kept it out I would have noticed more changes. Overall, a good workout and DVD but not something I could do for months on end.

Feel free to share your results this week or next week as well! Any ideas for what our next 30 day challenge should be?!

  1. Good job on the 17 days and 5 pounds. I'm ashamed to admit that I managed a whopping…one day. Down two pounds anyway, but I credit that to the constantly ready to eat baby rather than anything I actually worked at.
