Body Revolution Day 61 of 90

Workout 9 again. Wasn’t so bad this time around. I’m so glad to be doing this program. Really. I am changing. Everything about me is changing. Since I’ve started Body Revolution I have become addicted to working out. I want to do it all the time. You know how I started the couch to 5k program? Well I am at week 9 now, the last week. I finished the 30 minute run! If it weren’t for Body Revolution I would not have even tried it out! I wouldn’t have gotten my butt up at all.

We joined the YMCA again. We have been working out there too. I just love working out now. It is insane. This has changed my life so much. I wish I could meet Jillian Michaels just so I could hug her and tell her thank you. I a not at my goal weight yet but I know its going to happen. I feel confident that I’m not giving up. Jillian definitely gave me the push I needed to jumpstart this healthier lifestyle.

Here is a picture of me at the zoo with my kids from yesterday. I know you guys probably won’t see it, but I look so much thinner. I am wearing my baby but my arms, legs, and face are where I see the difference. I love this picture.

Body Revolution Day 60 of 90

Cardio 3. What can I say about Body Revolution Cardio 3?? Okay. So at first I thought, sheesh this is a piece of cake. No problem. The second time doing the exercises is was a little bit tougher. But by the third time doing the exercises, I was pouring sweat and felt worn out.

Each exercise is only 20 seconds. I like that because a lot of the exercises were easy, but some moves were challenging. When you only have to do something for 20 seconds, its not that bad. You can do ANYTHING for 20 seconds.

A lot of the moves you have seen before but I was excited to see some new moves. I really cannot express how much I love Jillian Michaels and her workouts. She is the perfect motivator for me. Some people don’t like her approach or her language. But I need her roughness. I need her to yell and tell me not to quit. I love the little speeches she gives while I’m working out. I love that she constantly tells me I’m worth it. Because I am. And so are you.

By the way. Cardio 3 beat out workout 10 for the highest calorie burn of Body Revolution. 357 calories in 34 minutes. Awesome.

Body Revolution Day 58 of 90

Workout 10! It was my favorite workout so far! Holy cow I was dripping with sweat by the end. In fact I had trouble doing some of the moves because my hands were so sweaty and I couldn’t hold onto the weights very well during the lunge chops! I burned more calories with this workout than any of the previous workouts. 341 calories in 38 minutes. I was super impressed.

The moves burned but in a good way. I didn’t have to modify any moves because I was exhausted or anything but I did have to modify certaain ones because my big toe is bothering me. I don’t know what’s up with it but its my big toe on my right foot. Its sore and it feels like when your knuckles need to pop? Like that, only in my toe! Anyway so its sore when I do those curtsy type moves on that side. I broke my foot a few years ago and that foot always gives me problems. Its not from Body Revolution. And its not a problem that really gets in the way much, just feels a little sore. I will have to see the dr about it soon though just to check. A quick google search about the problem didn’t really help me much. One result said it sounded like arthritis?? I have no clue but if anyone has any aadvice on my toe I would love to hear it!

Also, last week when I hurt my neck, that also was not Body Revolution related. I figured out what was happened to injure my neck. My daughter was pulling my hair last week and it was yanking my neck and that made it sore. Ugh it hurt so bad for days! But it is all better now.

Alright, so workouts 9 and 10 are awesome and nothing to worry about. The thought of cardio 3 is daunting to me because I feel like her cardio workouts are rough. I’m nervous but I will get through it, and you can too! If you are doing the program please leave a comment and let me know how you aare doing!

Body Revolution Day 57 of 90 AGAIN!

So here I am back on track. Yesterday I did the first day of phase 3 again, day 57 of 90, workout 9. It was harder than the last time I did it but it was not terrible. What I mean to say is that it is challenging to me, for sure, but its not anything that you can’t handle. Really. Don’t be scared about starting phase 3 of Body Revolution. You will feel like a rock star when you finish this workout. Seriously. I felt so strong and proud of myself.

The moves were fun. I really didn’t have to modify anything. I love the weighted crab dips and I even enjoyed the push up jacks. I just love these moves!

I weighed in last Saturday at 183. I started Jillian Michaels Body Revolution at 195. So I have lost 12 pounds so far. I’m impressed by that. My goal for phase 3 is to lose 8 pounds. I want to be down to 175, so that will be a total of 20 pounds from the start of Body Revolution. I have 5 weeks left and I am confident I can do it! Wish me luck!
