30 Day Shred: BRING IT ON

So today Vince and I were supposed to be leaving on a trip to Silverton, CO to go snowboarding with some friends for a few days. Unfortunately our plans fell through, but I'm ok with that. Vince was incredibly bummed out because he really wanted to go snowboarding, but I wasn't. I was just excited about being able to go on vacation and wear my awesome Steez Gear gloves!

{I'm not sure how much the gloves are, I got a pair because I sewed some patches on for him, but check out the site and email Josh for questions!}

Instead, I decided we are going to do a little shopping, get some massages, go see a movie, eat some good food and take a trip to Sedona. I still have all my days off and I want NEED a vacation! 

I'm also excited to stay home because last night Vince and I went to the store to get a remote (our THIRD one) and I bought a workout video, some weights, and a yoga ball{after Roxanne popped my old one}. 

Last week I did a workout video on Netflix and LOVED the workout, but not the video. I mean, my 'instructor' had an eye patch and every time he talked to the backup girls in the video it sounded like he was about to pounce on them at any moment. 

So as a recommendation from Danielle, I got Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred {for $9!}. I'm really excited to do it after I finish writing this.

Vince doesn't understand why I'd want to workout inside as opposed to outside, but it's freeezing out there! I also like that I can do tiring things at my own pace and not have to worry about what others are thinking, like I would at a gym. I still take the dogs out...

I'm fine with the way my body is, but I want to be as healthy as I can. I know I'm not that strong and not really toned, and it would be pretty sweet to have a smokin' strong body, I'm not gunna lie. Vince also likes the idea of me being strong so I can run after someone if they try and kidnap our future kids. Ya, I know, he's a little weird.

I also notice that when I exercise I sleep way better, and that's always a plus.

I'll let you know what I think about the video, I'm excited to try it! 


  1. Good for you taking time to relax! Enjoy your vacation! =D
    I know a lot of people who don't exercise well unless they're in a gym but I do way better outside of the gym! I would get too self-conscious at the gym and found myself paying every month for a membership but instead running outside or doing workout videos at home.

  2. Ya I'm so excited for it, thanks!

    The gym s just so inconvenient, I'd rather stay at home than drive somewhere to work out! And ya, paying to work out is something I wouldn't want to do haha I'm too cheap!

  3. Awesome!! I'm going to buy a yoga ball and some weights soon too! I usually do free workout things online since it's way too cold to go outside, but my favorite thing is running. I've never used a yoga ball before, and I want to so bad. I can't wait for it to warm up! Maybe you'll let me borrow that video when you're done with it as well? ;] And by the way, I love those gloves!

  4. I like my yoga ball to also stretch my back in the morning after I wake up! I didn't even think of looking up exercise video online, I'm such an idiot haha Once it warms up I'll like running and hiking {a LOT} but ya, it's too cold! I can't wait for it to warm up too I'm so sick of this freezing cold. I'll definitely let you borrow it, but it might be easier to check it out from the library to see if you like it since it's 30 day thing, meaning i won't be done with it for 30 days haha I love the gloves too, especially since I get them free!

  5. I've done the Jillian Michaels 30 days shred, its a really good workout! and it's really fun! I think you'll like it, it's easy to stick to! Good luck!

  6. I did and I LOVE it! She's so encouraging throughout it. I totally laughed when I was getting tired of jumping jacks and she was like, "I have 400lb people that do this, so can you!"

  7. I've done the Jillian Michaels 30 days shred, its a really good workout! and it's really fun! I think you'll like it, it's easy to stick to! Good luck!
