Holiday Shred

It sounds like from yesterday's comments that you all had a plan of attack for getting back on track after Thanksgiving....or maybe even just the weekend!  Having a plan helps me so much....like I can just dial in to whatever I need to do! 

Yesterday, in addition to my run, I started the Holiday Shred with Bobbi at Nhershoes.  I first heard about the Shred from a post by Skinny Runner and I headed over to check it out.  For just $30 you get a 20 minute workout and Bobbi's support for 23 days!  In addition you eat clean for the 23 days, even though Bobbi says you can have one treat one day a week!  I thought....SCORE!  I have been struggling lately with being bored by my weight workouts and I would love to have a trainer just tell me what to do.  This was a win win for me!  Here are a few of my thoughts about the Holiday Shred so far...
  • I'm going to go for the totally clean for the 23 days!!! (I am toying with posting a WIAW with what I ate)
  • Bobbi is absolutely adorable!  She makes me giggle the whole time! (The workouts are sent in a video form)
  • After the first day I thought, this is not too bad maybe I need to add more weight.  Now that I am done with the second day I'm thinking....this was the butt kick I needed!  She does interval training which I have done in the past....but there is nothing like someone else calling out the orders!
  • I love this!!!  I seriously am looking forward to tomorrow's workout!
  • Score....I can workout in my pjs if I want....and no one has to know!!!
Did you sign up for the Shred?  What are your thoughts so far?  If not, what are your go to intervals for weight training?


  1. This sounds very interesting. I'll have to check it out!

  2. It sounds great! Good luck with it all...if you can do 23 days of clean eating in December, you are my hero!

  3. Sounds like your going to really like it. It's always fun to look forward to the next workout. I didn't sign up for the SHRED, I'm not ready for that commitment yet!!!

  4. Oye. I need to go clean too. I am moving the bag of chocolate chips to a hidden location. :)

  5. With Christmas just around the corner my wife and I are very aware of all the temptations that are in front of us. With winter nipping at us, we lose the ability to go outside to get our exercise. So this sounds great!

  6. Working out in the PJ's is a totally bonus. And $30 is a heck of a lot cheaper than a personal trainer. Very cool!

  7. This sounds great! I am not doing it officially, but AM trying to eat clean and exercise each day! Good luck!
