Last night I did the 30 Day Shred workout DVD by Jillian Michaels. That woman is brilliantly sadistic. Jumping jacks, weights, crunches-
and bears, oh my! Holy moly I am sore this morning. Granted, I feel great. I feel like I accomplished something. I feel like I should have felt 6 months ago when I bought the DVD.
This morning, I feel lighter. I feel like I can take on the world. I don’t know if this is a side effect of the exercise (as exercise increases endorphines) or because Jillian has actually motivated me. I actually wanted her to yell at me more during the workout. I wanted her to scream about my fat arse, flabby arms and wobbly stomach. I need that. I don’t want people to be nice to me when I am doing crunches. If I have someone telling me nice things it makes me think “oh I can just give half the effort. They won’t mind at all”. Jillian told me the truth. If you give half you won’t even get half the results.
I actually last night thought “This, now, this is how I am going to lose weight!” This morning I am thinking “I am going to lose weight because I can’t lift my arms to put any food in my mouth.” I have Jillian all figured out.
