“I came the simple way, down the stairs.”
“Down the stairs? To Ursa Minor? Hey, you must be unbelievably fit.”
– Douglas Adams, The Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy
On the recommendation of a coworker, a rather impressive sister-in-law, and over a thousand Amazon customers, I picked up Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred. Amusingly, the DVD case got worked over in the mail and it arrived, ahem, shredded! (Guffaw)
The DVD itself runs just fine, but that’s more than can be said for us. J. pushed himself too hard the first day we did it and lost his dinner rather inelegantly. I’ve been unable to walk without wobbling a bit for the past few days,. Iimagine a more than usually ungainly penguin bobbing back and forth across the ice and you’ll have some idea what I look like going up and down stairs.
In other words, it’s working. I’m determined to be extremely fit by the time we go off to grad school!

I’ve heard good things about it, too. Glad to hear another positive review. I love Jillian!
The first few days are awful! But I’ve been doing it for several months and eventually you will get through it without wanting to barf! Keep it up!
P.S. I’m starting an investigation into whether Jillian is in fact William. There’s no way she’s a lady.
How do you keep doing it for months? I want to, but the mechanics fail me. Do you vary up the routines?
