Did you lose 47 piunds just on the Jillian Michaels 90 Day Body Revolution? Im about to start on the 26 as im getting it for christmas ;) any tips to keep going, diet tips ect. Are totally helpful! Since you seemed to have a lot of success. Thanks!!

Sorry if this was written a long time ago I just saw it now.  (Why don’t I get notifications?  Also why doesn’t anyone ever message me :P)

Anyways.  I lost a good 30-40 lbs doing a combination of workouts from Jillian Michaels.  I started doing the 30-Day Shred (week 1 killed me) and her abs workout, from there did the 90 DBR, and the last month I did Ripped in 30.  It’s hard and it’s long but each week you feel your body getting stronger and more fit.  By the last 4 weeks I was still breaking a sweat but I honestly probably could have ripped a telephone book (do they still make these by the way?) in two.  You have to eat right.  You have to eat smart.  You have to be dedicated and be willing to ache.  Skipping workouts and eating junk isn’t going to completely kill your progress, but you can’t expect fast results if you’re not trying your hardest.  I worked out 5 days a week and never felt bad if I didn’t do more.  Your body needs rest and there’s a reason this programme gets results fast - it’s working certain muscles and resting them every other day.  You’re also increasing your stability and flexibility.  There’s alot going on and your body has to adapt quickly. 

I didn’t ever attempt the meal plan included with the programme.  I ate strictly from the South Beach Diet and near the last 2 months I was eating vegetarian all the way.

To anyone willing and wanting to try a workout from Jillian Michaels I would suggest the 30 Day Shred first.  If you’re a beginner the 90 DBR might totally wipe you out and you might get discouraged too early.  She isn’t a bitch (like I tend to read) and totally inspires and encourages throughout every workout.

Yesterday someone sent me a mail asking if I remember them.  The smart thing to do would be to just ignore it and pretend like I never received the email.  I’ve never been good at taking my own advice.

This morning I woke up feeling really grumpy and unappreciated.  I got up, ate some müesli, and then went back to bed.  I woke up again to breakfast in bed and the kids watching tv quietly in the other room. 

After almost 13 years together I still secretly wish there was more spontaneous romance in our relationship, but after almost 13 years I still have to remind myself that the little things still mean something.
