Get your shred on. | The Shrinking Jeans of Beth


Posted by beth on April 5, 2009

Monday, April 6th, marks the first of the 30 day Shred Challenge.

What does this mean for you?  Lots of sweat, sore legs, burning arms, sore abs and maybe even some tears.  And no, I’m not trying to scare you, I’m just telling you what to expect.

But I want to tell you what else to expect.  (I started this challenge last week so I can tell you from personal experience a few things.  and yes, I went from couch potato to shredder, just like so many of you.)

Around the third day you can expect the soreness to subside some.

You can expect to feel a difference in your body within a few days

You can expect the workout to feel easier, your endurance to increase.

You can expect an increased energy level that will last all day long. (!!)

You can expect to feel really good about yourself for doing that thing that you’ve been putting off for way too long.

And at the end of the thirty days (YES, THIRTY DAYS IN A ROW, NO MATTER HOW SORE YOU ARE, I PROMISE, YOU’LL BE FINE.)  you can expect to see and feel like a brand new you.  A healthier you.  A happier you.  Your friends will notice, your family will notice and YOU will notice your change.

All of these good feelings will be worth the hundreds of push-ups and crunches you’ll  be doing over the next thirty days.

I promise.

Just don’t quit.  Don’t give up.  Keep going.

You can visit The Sisterhood and find that one of our beautiful (and slimming) bloggers will be writing a post each day to document their own personal experience with Shredding.  (remember, we are doing this, too!)   Feel free to jump in with the discussion in the comments sections and if you write a post on your blog, leave the link in the comments.


Happy Shredding.
