I'm such a follower

I've always been a far back as I can remember I've been a follower. That can be a good thing AND a bad thing. But, we won't go there, will we?

So...this past week, there has been much discussion on twitter about "Shred." Not to be ugly, but I call it stupid Shred. Don't ask. you know what Shred is?? Apparently the villain on The Biggest Loser has some trainer chick that can kick your tail when it comes to working out. I don't watch the show, but I've heard of her.


Does she even have a last name?? I'm thinking she is like Mr. T.

Apparently Jillian is hard core, but people love her because she gets the job done.

Shred will get that job done for us in only 20 minutes. The catcher??? It's for 30 days. That doesn't sound long at first thought, but when you look at a calendar.....30 days is FOREVAH!

I'm heading to Target today to pick up my copy. My bloggy and twitter buddy Gayle and I said that we were gonna be unrecognizable when the 30 days was up! HOW FUNNY ARE WE??

We are serious though. ;)

So...I think its time to get serious about this body that houses the Holy Spirit of God.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 19Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

Wish me luck. Wish US luck. I believe now is a good time to be a follower. Wanna get in on it?

But, we are gonna be SMOKIN when we are done!

YAAAAAAAAY! You get to join the! No, really this s great. I think you are just having mercy on your poor out of shape sisters and doing it for the heck of it...because you already look fabulous!

His Girl said...

I'm considering too. I've never seen the show, but I've also never seen my abs look like that. Veeeery convincing printwork.

Deciding if I shall fall for it too.

(my word verification is deter. do you think that is an omen?)

Ok first of all... here's how brilliant I am. I heard all the buzz on Twitter but somehow missed the definition. I thought it had to do with house organization!!! But, then I found out the truth. And, here's the thing. It's almost swimsuit season. Which means I should TOTALLY jump on this bandwagon. But, I feel zero motivation! Zero. But then you go and quote scripture and oh I don't know! :) For now I'm off to grab another cup of coffee. But, as I head to Target I MAY just be tempted to become a follower too! :) Have a great day!!!

yup following you and you follow the "others" ;) couldn't imagine a better group to shred with though!

Melinda said...

Because I'm apparently just in front of you in "follow the [stupid-shred] leader", I went yesterday to Target to pick up my copy and they were OUT!

Looks like there are shredders everywhere and maybe, just maybe, they aren't so stupid after all!

Hugs Frannie-girl,

Your shredded-wannabe friend

Lose up to 20 pounds in 30 days??? I need all the help I can, I am so in!!!! :)

LOL!!!! I'm laughing cuz I'm crazy that way, but seriously, I'm in!!!


ocean mommy said...

Girl...I don't even know what day I'm on...I just know that my body hurts. Seriously hurts. BUT...I can tell a difference in my skinny girl jeans. :) So we'll see.

I'm anxious to hear about your first time shredding. :) Oh boy...I would love to be in your living room with you when you do this!!! It would be so much fun to get us all together for a shred party. :)

To quote some movie I can’t remember the name of, “I can’t handle the Shred!” It sounds hard core and I’m more about gentle coercion that being yelled at by a boot camp instructor that probably only eats carrots all day long!

Sheryl said...

Oh my! Should I get on this thang too?


Tammy said...

Oh sure, throw some scripture in there to make me feel more guilty. ;-)

I need to get up off my lazy bum and get to shredding too. Who wouldn't want to loose 20 pounds in 30 days?? I'm not sure I can be a follower though.

I can't wait to hear how you are doing.

Mel @ Studio MCA Designs said...

Okay. So I found it at really cheap. I think I will sign up. This is an accountability group, right? ;)

Janelle said...

I am getting thiiiisssssss close to joining! Everyone I know is on day 3. I want to see them at day 14 before I decide! :)

Cheryl said...

I'm dying to be in on the shredding but I guess I'll be a few weeks behind everyone else. May be a good thing cause when I want to give up, y'all can tell me it will be worth it!!!!

A Stone Gatherer said...

You go girl! Let me know how it goes! I know Jillian fromt the show - she is a tough one! Watch out for her snarl!!!!

Anonymous said...

i'm a follower as well... and all i have to say is SHRED IT! :)

Alana said...

I have to see I'm getting curious about this, too. Is it really only 20 minutes?

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

Guess I will head to Target and make a purchase tomorrow...but headed to Disney next week and guess I should wait to start....

I want to hear about some results
