Yesterday I finished the Jillian Michaels’ Ripped In 30 Challenge! I did these workouts before work every morning (except one day where I woke up late and had to do it after work) and followed her meal plan with a few modifications. I posted everything I ate during these 30 days here at my Daily Plate. I’ll make a post soon of my favorite meals along with nutrition information soon.
I did each workout Monday through Friday and then took rest days on the weekend. My only exercise was Ripped In 30 and one day where I mowed the yard. I don’t have a regular mower so it’s a bit of a workout!
I have a lot more to talk about regarding the DVD and meal plan, but for now I’m just going to share the before & afters because I’m so excited! :]

There’s so much more space between my thighs and between my arms and hips.
I love this one because you can see how my arms have changed. Notice how you can see my sports bra behind my arm in the after photo, but in the before my arm was too big to be able to see that.
I don’t see much of a difference in my biceps, but I am so much stronger. I can do regular and chaturanga push-ups like it ain’t no thing anymore!
I still cant believe this is my after shot! I am really happy with the results.
Overall, this DVD is awesome! The workouts are short, effective and don’t get boring at all. The meal plan isn’t ridiculous and I always made sure I got enough protein and healthy fats and drank a lot of water during this. I would definitely recommend the DVD, but it is no joke and Jillians packs a lot in a twenty minute workout!
