Get Ready to Shred

January 13, 2012

If you follow me on Facebook you know I’ve mentioned the possibility of doing an official TAGG 30-day Shred program to help us all look and feel totally fab in the new year. Well mine came in the mail yesterday and I’m officially stoked to get started as of Feb. 1. Awesome women including Kimberly, Nicole, Lia, Emily, Ann, Rebecca and Jennifer have already committed to Shred with TAGG. Who’s else is joining??

Love having each other to keep us accountable throughout the month because seeing as it’s a video done in-home I’m so prone to slacking off and procrastinating. The accountability is one of the main reasons Weight Watchers was a success for me years ago (35 lbs gone in 2002-03!) so I’m confident this “TAGG team effort” is just what we need (yes, I’m officially a cheese)!

Let me know you’re doing it and I’ll stalk you if I think you’re slacking! OK, that might be challenging, but I’m pretty impressive at Jewish motherly guilt and I’m not too proud to throw around if I need to, hint, hint. Get Shred on Amazon for $6.99 and join TAGG on Feb. 1 to create the body, good health and overall good feelings about yourself in 2012 that you deserve. That Jillian Michael’s doesn’t mess around.

    Sounds like a great idea! Just what I need to jump start a new fitness routine.

    • Alyson

      Trish: you’re officially in then and on the hook! Woohoo!

  • lauren

    I commend you on doing this. I did it for a couple days then injured myself to the point where I couldn’t breathe without my chest hurting ah! Best of luck!!

    • Alyson

      Eeek, that’s a little alarming. I’m going to hope for the best. I hear it’s intense but maybe it’s what I need!

  • Fashion By Alicia

    I actually bought this yesterday! I probably will start as soon is it arrives lets hope I can make it through it.

    Hey, I’ve only had this DVD for a year and a half and it’s still in the wrapper….might as well bust it out for a good cause! Count me in!

    • Alyson

      WOot, woot! I’m holding you to it. {I would have done the same had I not decided to do this for some insane reason}.

  • Pencil Skirts and Lattes

    gah - I want to join you but between my trainer opening a new gym that I need to support AND training for the half marathon… not sure how much energy/time I can give to the 30 day shred!! :( boo. this sounds fun with you ladies.

    • Alyson

      Sarah: it’s ok… Kimberly’s going to do another workout but stick with us for accountability. You should do the same (good luck on half marathon training; that’s awesome!).

  • Penny Pincher Fashion

    Is it okay if I want to join you ladies for the accountability, but I do a different workout? I’m somewhat limited because of my bulging disc, but would love to get started on a daily regime! Let me know if you’ll include me & I’ll start with you on Feb 1st!! :)

    • Alyson

      Bulging disc? :( I had no idea. Would definitely love to have on board for accountability purposes to help motivate and I’m game for any workout that works for you. Mark it on your calendar!

  • Christina

    I did this when I was trying to lose my baby weight and it really worked! Take your measurements your first day and then at the end you will see your success. Good luck!

    • Alyson

      That’s what I’m going to do, thanks! I’ve heard excellent things so if I don’t pass out on day one I’m in pretty good shape!

  • Haley @ Cardigan Junkie

    As a shred veteran, I must warn you that if you are not already strong and in pretty good shape you will probably not be ready to graduate to workouts 2 and 3 after 10 days. You should not for one second feel bad about staying on Level 1 for more than 10 days, since it takes weeks to increase your upper body strength by leaps and bounds and true transformations don’t happen in one month. My 30 day shred turned into a 90 day shred with other workouts mixed in, and at the end I still couldn’t do the moves in workout 3 but was 12 lbs lighter.

    That said… a lot of those pounds came back over the next 9 months so I’m back to strength training along with you!

    • Alyson

      Haley: happy to have you on board and appreciate the wise words because I am a competitive spirit who might want to move along though might not be totally ready.

  • Jennifer Schiavon

    Just ordered the DVD - I’m in!!

    • Alyson

      Woohoo! So glad to hear.

  • dana

    I am in! I just bought the dvd and can’t wait!!

    • Alyson

      So thrilled to have you in, Dana!!

  • Leeann @ Join the Gossip

    So I totally bought this DVD like 5 years ago and only used it twice :O How bad is that?! I started counting calories this week and I really should try to do this with you ladies. HOWEVER, I recently had to quit softball after over 20 years because I messed up my knees so I am not sure if I can physically do the video. I might as well try though!!

  • Ally

    What a fun way to get everyone motivated for their New Years Resolutions!! I have tried to do the shred with my sister… Jillian is a tough chick. My own escape from it all has been Zumba… OBSESSED and it’s sooo fun!

    xoxo, Ally

  • Karli

    This sounds like such a great idea! I’ll give it a try. Accountability might make it stick :)

    • Alyson

      Accountability is the best! GLad to have you on board!

  • Carrie

    Just bought it!!! I’m in!

    • Alyson

      Woohoo, Carrie! Excited to have you part of our group.

  • cassidy

    Her video is good and she is tough! Good luck to all. For added inspiration and motivation after you finish this feel free to check out my home workouts that I have started creating on my blog every Monday!

    • Alyson

      Thanks, Cassidy! I’ve heard she’s crazy tough but I’m ready to get buff. Ok, not intended to rhyme but kind of works, right?

  • christina

    Hello, I want to join, have the dvd

    • Alyson

      Woohoo, you’re in! I’ll post about this again closer to the start to get everyone prepared.

    Hmmmm….I think I might be interested in this! 1- I like that it starts February 1st, not January 1st- kind of like how I start my week (or begin to function) on Tuesdays as opposed to Mondays. #2- I just realized I stream the 30 day Shred video on Netflix. Very convenient! I can use the accountability too. I guess that means count me in! lol

    • Alyson

      Woohooo, glad to have you on board!! It’s so great to have the accountability and I like that I had this month to get things settled. Get ready…!

    • Alyson

      Great idea! POsted the thought on FB along with suggestion to take measurements. Hoping to see a difference in my belly/abs and the hips! Excited that you’re doing this, too!!
