Starting my ripped in 30


So I waited anxiously by my front door from the moment my ‘shipping’ icon glowed. It finally arrived after what took like centuries! I ripped open the parcel and put in the DVD. I’m thrilled that I have the free time to do these DVD’s, yes they’re only 20 mins but sometimes people don’t want to use that time to workout, I am fortunate to have a lot of free time.
I’ve recently completed Jillian Michels 30 day shred and tracked my calories, that’s what inspired this new journey.
So, the workout. Well, it’s hard. I’m not going to sugar coat this, it is harder then a level 2 30 day shred workout and it is one of the hardest workouts I’ve done, and thank god it is. I love being challenged, I love that now I have to work hard to be good at week 1 and when I can do it, it immediately progresses to week 2.

So I’m starting at:



I am also going to do the diet plan which I haven’t done before, luckily hers is very lenient.. . ( I will put Jillian’s menu on the left and what I actually eat on the right. B.L.S. Dinner.)

2 eggs on toast. – Normally 280 calories. ( I use 2 whites one yolk) 245

Turkey and avocado wrap. – Ham and risotto wrap

Apple berry banana smoothie – Banana raisin and apricot yoghurt (ice cream) recipe for this.

Turkey kebabs.-  Chicken pie and veggies.

Jillian’s food is 200 calories for breakfast and snack, 400 for lunch and dinner. So in total you eat 1200, not Inc drinks and bits you may eat thought-out your day.

Mine for day 1 is 245, 310, 210, 310 115, then I have 2 coffee’s – 1318
Today is day one so I’m starting with.

So here goes…


Foods you eat should be part of your day, not your life. You shouldn’t need to know how many calories those grapes have in them, eat healthy and exercise well and t should be enough to shed fat. -Jillian Michaels is the first fitness regime I have ever, cried, sweated, shouted at, it is the first thing I have been happy to wake up and WANT to exercise I WANT to improve myself.
