Trying out something new

As many of you know, I use Swagbucks religiously in my internet search. What is Swagbucks, you might ask? Well, it's a search engine that is powered by Google and Ask.com, and instead of using Google automatically as my search engine, I use Swagbucks first. Swagbucks rewards me with random points and I accumulate the points to exchange them for giftcards to Amazon, Starbucks, Target, the likes.

Now that I have some (free!)cash sitting in my Amazon account, I am thinking of getting a couple of things. I've been wanting to get back into shape but really, really, hate running. A friend of mine has been recommending the Jillian Michael's 30 day shred, so I've been swagbuck-ing it on line and researching reviews. I think I might be persuaded to get it, and now even more so because it's on sale for $9.99 (or free, with Swagbucks Amazon giftcards!)

Do you have this workout video? What's your review on it? Or, will you take the exercise plunge with me? We can be Shred Buddies! That could be a whole new series of blog posts: Saving money and Losing weight, by MrsSmith! LOL.


  1. I have this one and was on a good start til I worked a week of super early shifts...I would love to get back on track. I can be your shred buddy :)

  2. Its a good video. I'm still on 'easy'. The first couple of times I really hurt afterwards. It does take longer than the 20 minutes though. 20 min of actual work - plus her directions! Good luck!
