Jillian Michaels just kicked my booty

I am a huge fan of The Biggest Loser. I remember back when they used to show the actual nutrition aspect of what the contestants were going through rather than just being one big advertisement for Jennie-O, Extra, Ziploc, and Brita Filters. Nonetheless I love watching, what can I say, I will always love a good before & after. If I were to go on the show I would definitely want Jillian Michaels as my trainer, I like Bob but I think I need the Jillian no nonsense kind of training. {Speaking of Bob, is anyone else waiting for him and Amanda to just kiss already? :)}
For Christmas this year I asked Brian to get me the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. He did! I know because I accidentally found the receipt so he gave it to me early! We tried it out tonight and let me tell you Jillian kicked my butt (Brian's too)! My arms feel like jello! I am scared to go to bed because I know that I am going to wake up sore!

I really DID NOT want to workout with Brian. For some reason the thought of working out with him is totally intimidating. Maybe because he is a Marine and all I did the past year was be pregnant and then have a baby. Honestly not much exercise has happened since high school. I am glad that I did it with him though because Jillian had Brian sweating too! So hopefully this is a start and maybe now I will go running with him like he wants me too.... Maybe....

i'd prefer bob as my trainer...but let's vow to never get to the point to need to apply for the show! :)
ive heard jillian's workouts really are tough though. and i know what you mean about being intimidated. i felt the same way around greg when we first worked out together!

So...
#1- we should get together and do this while the kiddos nap.
#2- Jesse and I are planning to get this video. I'm stoked. Do you need any special equipment like a step or anything?

Thanks for posting about this. And seriously, we should get together.

Okay, so Kimmy got it and we did it together. And then I promptly went and got it myself and skh did it with me, lol. I had the same strong desire for him to NOT do it with me since he runs 40 miles a week and I am just now able to walk for 20 minutes without dying. Anyway, he said it was a good workout too! :) And after my third day today, I AM SO SORE. I can hardly move. But we'll be shredded, right??!?!
