I'm sure most everyone is familiar with her for being on The Biggest Loser. I'm not a fan of the show but I have seen a few episodes so I totally expected 20 minutes of her yelling at and berating me through the television screen. I actually found her to be fairly pleasant, however I don't think I want to listen to the same spiel over and over again so I may be muting her in the future.
When I first got the DVD on Tuesday I decided to pop it in and just watch it since I had absolutely no motivation to actually get off the couch but I was curious about what I was in store for. I very naively thought "this doesn't look too hard, what's all the fuss about, I can do this shit"...cut to last night and I'm panting heavily, arms are shaking and my body feels like jello...and that was after only doing LEVEL 1.Dear Jesus help me.
Granted I'm not the most in shape, active person. While I've been blessed with a high metabolism and therefore don't need to actually lose weight I consider myself to be "skinny-fat" i.e. I have absolutely no muscle tone and there are areas of me that are a bit flabbier than I prefer. I'm really hoping to get nice toned arms/shoulders/back before I have to rock my strapless wedding dress in May.
I can definitely see how doing this workout for 30 days would whip you into shape and God bless anyone that is able to actually do Level 2 or 3, I bow down to you! Today I am definitely feeling it in my calves and arms especially...I guess doing an entire minute of non stop squats and arm curls will do that to you. I'm sure you're thinking "a minute? Pfft a minute isn't that long" well my friends I assure you when you feel yourself looking death in the eye a minute is a damn long time!
I'll keep you posted on my progress, assuming this DVD doesn't go the way of my Yoga and Pilates DVD which are gathering dust in the guest room.
Also, for those interested in seeing pics of my STD's, I promise to post them after I mail these bad boys out.

My ass has officially been kicked
After reading all the buzz online I finally decided to make my own purchase of Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred, which I found for a great price on Amazon.
