    Hey everyone,
    So after reading so much about 30 day shred I've decided to start it tonight and really get myself fit.
    Anyone fancy joining me with it - having a 30DS buddy would be awesome :)

    I know I'm a couple of days late, but I just got it today and was just having a wee nosey on here to see what everyone thought. I start tomorrow!

    Not late at all - always good to know there are others doing it with me. Good luck for day 1 :) I've just done day 3 tonight and will be doing day 4 in the morning because I work shifts (ouch!) but I'm definitely noticing I can do more than I could in day one :) x

    I'm scared!!! Haha! I'll let you know how I get on. Although I think I should be more scared of the waitressing shift I'll be doing after! :)

    Done first thing this morning before I even realised I was awake! I have never been so deserving of a morning coffee... :)

    Awesome :D enjoy that coffee! How did you find it?

    I did day 4 this morning (did day 3 late last night) - was lying in bed thinking how I could just wait until tonight to do it but I'm glad I got out of bed to do it this morning (and means I can have a cheeky glass of guilt-free wine tonight - yay!) :)

    T25 and 30DS?! Wow! How was that?!

    It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be to be honest, but still a workout, and I know I'm only on level one. I'm guessing level three will be pure evil but I'm refusing to look ahead on the DVD.

    I'm the same - refusing to look ahead on the DVD in case I never let myself get to level 3 - haha

    I'm dreading level 2 already :)

    took a rest day today as I was feeling super tired but missing it bizarrely. I'm looking forward to doing it again :)

    I'm only on day 5 of level 1 today as I took a break over the weekend - looking forward to getting back to it, though :)

    Have been looking at T25 and wondering should I go for it, I love Jillian michaels 30 day shred, the price tag for T25 is quite high do you think it's worth it.?

    Hey I'm on week 4 of T25 and I LOVE it! Combined it with WW. Don't get me wrong... It's tough but for only 25mins anyone can do it and the modifier still works up a sweat too!

    I did 30DS last year and got to level 2 but it was TOO repetitive for me.... With T25 the minimum times I'll do an exercise over the 5 weeks is 5 times, and a maximum is about 7 I think - over 5 weeks! I'm on week 4 and still watching like "have I actually done this move before?!"

    Below are pics from week 1 and week 3. My weight hasn't changed dramatically, 2lbs loss in 3 weeks including a TOTM and water retention I think... But I've lost 5inches from my body - especially thighs and arms which is my trickiest spots to see a difference normally.

    Thanks for your answer bugsbunny2000. I have been watching the adverts for T25 and I know it's not easy but if you want change it is going to take hard work and I figured that it is only 25 mins, the Insanity dvd's I think would definitely kill me! Your pics are fab by the way.

    Yeah I tried insanity - well I tried to fit test and felt like a complete idiot! But t25 is that right balance between achievable and kick-your-butt! I recommend it to everyone and the fact I'm actually seeing differences within 2-3 weeks is brilliant! 2 weeks in 30DS and I saw no difference at all x

    That is one thing I'm not liking about 39DS. It's SOOOO repetitive. Sometimes I take a day off and do a class in the gym instead just for a wee change.

    I know the feeling although I like knowing the routine. I go Thai boxing but still do 30ds as extra on those days
