No More Trouble Zones

Happy Monday, all!

Today I'm sore. Like, all over. A couple of weeks ago I ordered 4 of Jillian Michael's DVD's (my roommate had the 30 Day Shred and I had been borrowing it from her since she introduced it to me). One of those DVD's is No More Trouble Zones:

I believe it. I believe this especially because not only did I work those trouble zones, I am having trouble moving ANY of those zones at the moment. I think if I did this DVD everyday (you know, assuming I could move the next day to do it consecutively), that I would be in tip top shape!

After doing this video I felt like I had gotten an extremely good workout. I also knew I was in trouble when I went to shower after working out and it hurt to raise my arms in order to shampoo/condition my hair and then afterwards when I went to dry my hair. In fact, at the risk of sounding like a total wimp, I will share with you: my arms even hurt a little while typing this at the moment (go ahead, judge me). Basically, this thing was no joke, but I definitely know that I worked out!

I love The 30 Day Shred, and it's nice because it's only about 25 minutes. This one was 50 minutes and I wanted to die about 20 times throughout.

I'm not sure I'm going to be able to do any kind of exercise today after work. Maybe a run on the treadmill just to loosen up and get some cardio in. But I certainly will not be able to endure that video today. Or maybe even tomorrow.

I would give this DVD workout two thumbs up. You know, if I could move to do so :)

Hope you're having a good start to the week!


  1. Visiting you from Meg's MM! I love Jillian Michaels...seriously, wish she were my personal trainer - she is so inspiring! I know so many people who have her DVDs and swear by them; I have yet to try them, but after yet another positive review, I might just have to cave and make the purchase!

  2. You totally should--check them out on Amazon--they are really reasonably priced, and are killer workouts!

  3. Hey! Thanks for the sweet comments and awesome Peeps recommendation! Keep up the workout hard work! I'm impressed...I'm totally off the wagon at the moment. Have a super week!

  4. I'm starting the 30 day shred! I'm glad you said it's not as bad as the other workouts! I hope I can handle it! Good luck :)

  5. Casey: don't worry, you'll get back on. Plus, it's your birthday--you can do what you want to! :)

    Michelle: the first workout will suck. You will be sore afterwards. But the second, or third time you do it, it's not so bad (I waited a week in between the first and second time I did it, but after that I could do it every day)

  6. This DVD, along with 30 Day Shred and Boost Metabolism, is hard. But after every workout I feel AMAZING. Yes, I'm exhausted, sweaty, and my muscles are aching and trembling, but I feel energized and sharper mentally. I exercise five days a week, alternating workout videos, and take the weekends "off", during which I find I now have more energy to do everything from working in the garden to running around theme parks. I'm actually sleeping better too.


I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
