juice fast & 30DS

Today was good. I woke up and immediately did the 30 day shred. It was tough, but I got through it. I like the structure of the 30 day shred and the idea that there's an end to it all (after 30 days). I'm going to try my best to do it every single day for the next 30 days, even if that means waking up early or doing it at 10-11pm at night before I go to bed.

I also started a juice fast today. It was a spontaneous decision that I made last night, but I've been able to stick to it all day. I really, really want to eat something right now but I know I shouldn't. I know I should stay strong and finish this juice fast like I had planned to do. It's hard though. I'm not going out tonight and I keep thinking to myself that I should allow myself to eat something small since I'm not going out and consuming alcohol calories. lkfajsdlfkajs

Anyway, after I did the 30 day shred I went to my haircut appointment. Then I walked around the city for a while and came out and cleaned my apartment from top to bottom. I literally spent 4.5 hours cleaning every single corner of my apartment, dusting, vacuuming, re-organizing my closet. It was a lot of work, but it needed to be done and now I'm happy that everything is super clean! I'm sure all that housecleaning also burned a ton of calories, which is always a plus.


  1. What is the 30-day shred? I've never heard, but it sounds great. As for the haircut - PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN! :) Xo

  2. 30 Day Shred is a Jillian Michaels workout DVD that combines strength, cardio and abs. Each workout is 25 minutes long and they change every 10 days so your muscles don't adapt to the workouts. It's really effective - there are some amazing before/afters on Google.

    I didn't take any photos of my haircut (plus it was just a trim), but I did just take some "before" pics for my 30 Day Shred so I'll post those..

  3. I hear good things about the shred. I probably need to try it. It feels so good when your home is all neat and clean!!! Good luck with the juice fast. It is hard. But you can do it.

  4. Miranda, you should definitely give the 30DS a try. I have the DVD but I'm pretty sure you can find it on YouTube if you want to test it out before you invest any money into it (I think the DVD is only like $9 or something though). It will kick your ass, but the results are basically guaranteed if you put 100% into each workout!
