Shred for Phys. Ed?

I have an addiction. It's call 30-Day Shred. I love this DVD. Like any good addict, I don't follow the "prescription" as set forth by the program designers. No, I have made it my own and I am hooked. I don't know if it's the condensed format or the fact that I find most of it really challenging, but boy I love it. I used to call myself a "gluten-free veg-head" but now I'm actually tempted to change that to a "gluten-free shred-head."

It has gone so far that I'm curious as to whether or not the state reviewer will accept Shred as my childrens' physical education. This way I'd have another excuse to fit it in each day.

Shred on!


  1. I was happy to discover your blog today. I was unable to find a contact link. I hope it's OK that I'm contacting you through a public comment. I've developed an educational program for Windows called SpellQuizzer that helps children learn their spelling and vocabulary words without the battle that parents often have getting them to sit down and write them out while the parents dictate to them. The parent enters the child's spelling words into the software making a sound recording of each word. Then the software helps the child practice his or her words. It really helped my children with their weekly spelling lists.

    I would appreciate your reviewing SpellQuizzer in Lost Persons Homeschool. If you are interested in hosting a giveaway of a SpellQuizzer license I'd be happy to supply a free license to the winner. You can learn more about the program at There's a video demo you can watch at and a community site where SpellQuizzer users can share their spelling lists with one another ( Finally, there's a page targeted to homeschooling families at I'd be happy to send you a complimentary license for the software. Please let me know if you are interested.

    Thank you very much!
