I had planned on saving this for my 500th post, but I have a feeling that will be a bit late in swimsuit season, so….this week, I’m giving away THIS:
I have had this workout DVD for about 2 months and have done it 6 or 7 times when I couldn’t make it to the gym. It comes with three 20-minute workouts, Levels 1 through 3 (they increase in difficulty). I started on level 1 and did Level 2 for the first time tonight. I expected Level 1 to be easily doable for me, since I work out regularly. However, it packed much more of a punch than I thought. I definitely got a good sweat out of it. They give you two women to follow, Anita for a more toned-down, low-impact approach, and Natalie if you’re looking for more challenge. I did Level 1 until I was able to keep up with Natalie the whole time. Again, I mistakenly thought Level 2 would seem easy. Nope. I sweat more tonight than I have in a loooooooong time, even doing some of the cardio at Anita’s level. I highly recommend this video if you want to get in shape FAST without spending hours “phoning it in” (as Jillian says) at the gym every day.
Interestingly enough, two of the bloggers I read often are just commencing on their own 30-day Shred, so you can read their takes here and here. They’ve inspired me to commit to doing it on every day for the next month (except for the days I have all-day weddings or am working out at the gym).

And happy working out! Swimsuit season should (hopefully) be just a month or so away here in Minnesota, and already upon some of you!
