I have officially lost 10 pounds since June. Woot! I have been alternating 3 mile run days with an exercise video on opposite days, and one free/off day. I think I actually have started to get my vicious sweet tooth under control and I am seeing results. I have even lost at least an inch around my waist since I have gone up a notch on my work belt. I admit I have been struggling on off days with doing the Shred. I am actually sick of doing it, maybe because I talk the whole workout to myself, because "this is you time baby, make the most of it." I have been searching for a replacement until her new Shred It With Weights comes out and at the library I found Jillian's Banish the Fat, Boost the Metabolism, and let me tell you, wow. This one is a toughie and for people who don't like Jillian screaming at them, she is pretty tame in this one, relaxed almost. She does say some of her patented lines throughout, but I think I will be doing this one for a bit. It is 7 circuits, a lot of cardio, and is 40+ min. It says 40 on the box, but with warm up and cool down it is around 50 min. If you want to work your abs, this is a good one. My core was so sore 2 days after. I am hoping to find some other ones to prevent the boredom of one DVD all the time and this one doesn't do a whole lot of weights, which I need more of.
