My daughter and I have recently started the Jullian Michaels Ripped in 30 series. It is awesome.

We are on week 1 and have enjoyed it so far. The video series is in s step wise process so we do not "overdo it" early and give up like most of us would do. There is a meal plan, online, that is great, however, some of the ingredients are hard to find around my small "po-dunk" town. Anyway, I will journal about our progress. My daughter is really excited about this time together and our dietary changes. Let's hope it continues!!!
