One of my daughters (Sam) and I are doing the 30 day shred by Jillian Michaels.
I looked up the definition of shred, noun: A strip of some material, such as paper, cloth, or food, that has been torn, cut, or scraped from something larger.
Use it in a sentence.
My thighs were in shreds after the workout.

 I am a 40 something, with 4 kids and weight to lose.  She is 18, no kids and some weight to lose.  We took our pictures yesterday.  Those will follow after the 30 days. Hopefully to see the transformation.  We have also decided that we are changing our eating habits as well. We are giving up all sugars, breads, pastas, and grains (like rice). 
Day 1
20 minute workout.  That's easy.  I just ran 5 miles last Saturday (I am starting to train for a 1/2 marathon in September) how tough can this be?
It's a workout.  I felt it in my legs (thighs were quivering).  I was sweating.  I felt it was, a workout.
My daughter who does not really workout, she felt it was challenging, you need to be motivated to do it.

We shall continue and keep you posted.  Please keep your fingers crossed for us.  We are to be in bathing suits this weekend!
