The day Jillian Michaels tried to kill me.

What I wore: 30 days. No outfit repeats. Day 29.
Shirt, F21. Shorts, Express. Sandals, Payless. Necklace, from a boutique. 

I've been doing Jillian Michaels's 30 day shred workouts for a week and a half now.
When I began, I was sweating buckets and using water bottles instead of my 5 lb hand weights because holy crap she does a lot of reps
In a few days, I've progressed quite a bit.
But today I may have gotten a bit overzealous. 
30 day shred has 3 levels of workouts that, according to Jillian, 
get progressively more difficult.
Last week I stuck with levels 1 and 2. 
Today, I got all wild and crazy and decided to try level 3
How much more difficult could it be, right?
MUCH MORE DIFFICULT, is the answer.
Sometime during the workout, my arms fell off and my legs turned into Jell-O. 
My recent armless-ness is going to make it pretty hard to do the 
produce shopping at the farmer's market tonight.
 Wish me luck!


  1. a couple of years ago a did those videos for a while! fun little workout!

    love your outfit!

  2. Jillian Michaels is cray-zee! But there's definitely a method behind her madness lol


  3. I've done that. I love when she says, "I have 500 pound people that can do jumping jacks and so can you!" Try her yoga meltdown video, not easy but only 30 minutes so doable!

  4. i'm fairly certain jillian isn't even human. or at least that's what i tell myself when i'm laying, face down, and crying/sweating into the floor because i can no longer keep up with her rigor. you go on, jillian. i'll just stay here and die or something.
    (i'm glad i'm not completely alone.)

  5. I have definitely had a Jillian Michaels tried to kill me kind of day before too, horrible feeling, but the results make it all better! Love your outfit in this picture, the necklace is so pretty!

  6. i must find that necklace!! I am obsessed with it! and you go girl- keep up on your working out! I am envious of you! xo

  7. That necklace is gorgeous! I did the Jillian Michael's workouts a couple years ago and I agree, there's a big difference between the levels! You look great!

  8. hhahaha I'm happy that you're progressing in your workouts! Sorry about the arms falling off thing. It happens to me sometimes too, usually when I'm trying to stay in an awkward yoga pose for awhile. My upper body strength is HILARIOUSLY bad.

    In other news, LOVING that necklace. Love it, and it's not even in my preferred color palette. But you rocked it!

  9. Cute outfit! What a great idea to do 30 day no repeats. May have to try this!! Yeah JM is killer, but I love her!! Keep at it!

  10. I love that rainbow chevron necklace with the pale yellow shorts! Your blog is absolutely adorable and I'm following now :) I'm a huge fan of anyone that has a pug because I have a puggle!

  11. Armless and jello legs -- wow, that is some workout!

    Hey I tagged you in a question game if you have time, I'd love to hear your answers!

  12. Can I please have your hair?? How do you get those waves? It's beautiful!

    I've never done Jillian Michaels, but I have done Insanity, which is pretty nuts too! Our new apartment is in no way conducive to home workouts, so for now, it's back to the gym.

  13. I commend you. Seriously. I have been watching The Biggest Loser a lot lately and while it inspires me to work out....I'm more into yoga and running than hard core working out. Keep it up girl!

  14. Hahah!!! I love those videos. Somebody gave them to me for my wedding gift and they're pretty much my only constant when it comes to exercise.

    I love that feeling of not even being able to lift your arms up onto your steering wheel due to shakiness. Good luck lifting veggies and fruits :)

    Oh, and thank you so much for the award! You are so sweet!!


    ps.... loooove your boutique necklace. A lot!
