30 Day Shred Update

Many people ask this question (including myself) what do you do when the 30 days is over? For those who shredded daily like me, you feel kind of lost when it's over!

My current workout plan is this:
Saturday and Sunday - Shred Level 2, Run 3 mi., Bike or Elliptical 30 min.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday - Shred Level 3
Tuesday, Thursday - Shred Level 1, Elliptical 45 min.

I absolutely love the shred, and I continue to do it for a few reasons
- I still get a great workout because now I do all of the moves the "bad-ass" way, the way Natalie does them, so I squat lower, push-up lower, get my high-knees higher, punch faster, etc. So when people ask does it get easier, I say yes and no, because I'm used to is and my muscles are getting stronger, however I push harder so it's still always hard
- It's still a quick, hard, and effective workout, and during the week I really don't want to put in a lot of time
- It's still the most convienient workout for me

For some people, a day of rest is necessary, for me, I feel as though only shredding on MWF gives me enough rest. Again, this is what works for me, your body might need rest, mine does best when I keep pushing!


  1. Look at you go. You should be so proud of yourself. You look fantastic! Whenever I read your blog, it motivates me to kick my a** into shape too. Congrats adn keep it up!!!

  2. Hi! I found your blog through The Nest, and I love it!! I'm going to put you on my Google Reader so I can get your updates. I'm also doing and loving the shred. It's great!

    I read your post about your lunch and I'm inspired to do the same when school starts up in a few weeks (I'm a teacher). My questions for you are: Is that meal really filling for you? Do you eat any snacks throughout the day and if so, what do you eat? You can reply on my blog! thanks.

  3. I am on day 6 of the Shred and my August plan. Thanks for blogging about what to do after the 30 day shred. I will def. keep it in mind when I hit 30 days.
