30 Day Shred is horrifying and awesome. I have muscles in my armpits. ARMPIT MUSCLE OMG. My stomach is flatter, my arms are stronger, my butt migrated northward a bit. I’ll probably post a review about the workout on Gather.com this week, but suffice to say: it’s hard as hell, and totally worth it. 20 minutes, you guys! You can survive anything for 20 minutes, even if the instructor flat-out says “I WANT YOU TO FEEL LIKE YOU ARE GOING TO DIE” at one point, which, um, she does. She may also drop the term “gargling on your lungs”. But again: 20 minutes!

• JB is on Twitter, despite initially dismissing it as an activity on par with jerking off in public (which, fine, I may have done the same thing, mea fucking culpa). Please enjoy a sampling of his brain juices.

• Things that are pleasing me lately: Portia de Rossi’s wedding dress, the Twilight series, baking muffins with Riley (I love this recipe, so easy and adaptable — I added a bunch of blackberries that we’d picked and they turned out even more delicious, and purple!), season 2 of Dexter, listening to Fatboy Slim’s Acid 8000 at the loudest volume my ears can stand, and marveling over Sweet Juniper’s Eastern Market Flickr photos. How about you?

    You’ve inspired me. I just wrote a post whining about how I have NO TIME to exercise. 20 minutes? THAT I can do. I just ordered the 30 Day Shred.

    I commented before, but I just wanted to THANK YOU for inspiring me to get Jillian’s video. I just completed Day 2 of the Shred and holy shit. But in a good way.

    I’m too scared to even PREVIEW Levels 2 and 3. But I know I will get there. Eventually. Once my muscles stop SCREAMING, that is.

    Thanks though. I totally needed this kick in the ass.

    Thanks so much for bloggin about your experiences with 30-Day Shred. I had never heard of Jillian Michaels or this DVD (hey, I don’t watch a ton of TV). I’ve been looking for something to do when I can’t bring myself to leave the house, especially when winter rolls around. We get 300 inches of snow on average a year. And I hate skiing. Enough said.

    I tried Level One today and it nearly killed me, but in a good way.

    I love your insight and humor, and P.S. you look awesome! Thanks for being such an inspiration. I will keep reading.

  6. A More Accurate Title, In My Opinion, Would Be 30 Day Dead on June 12th, 2012 2:16 pm

    […] and then saw it mentioned again here and when I heard about all the armpit muscles you will get here I thought, hell for $14.99 I need to pick this thing […]

    Hey there would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re utilizing?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster
    then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price?

    Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!
