I’ve heard before that because I’m a plus size fashion blogger that I’m supporting an unhealthy lifestyle. That I give women an excuse to not take care of themselves. I love being the first in line to respond by telling those people that hey, actually, I work out every day, and I’m gonna start blogging about that, too.
In this video (if you’re on the main page, click “Read More” to get to the video!) I’m actually showing you some of the moves in Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred … like me doing them.
Heart Rate Monitor
The heart rate monitor that I’m wearing in this video is the Polar FT60 … which the battery died on today. Not very long-lasting that battery. I’ve only been using it for 2 months. I think something else funky is going on, but maybe it is just the batter. More on that soon. Oh, and you can get yourself some weights right here.
Ripped in 30? Shredded? Um … Chopped & Screwed?
Today I tried Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 Days. Shredded, ripped, next I’m going to be completely without pants because that’s obviously the next step in this series. What will I need pants for when I’m completely chopped and screwed into pieces, right?
I am getting smaller. I actually had my boyfriend HIDE my scale because it was depressing me. I didn’t lose the 20 lbs in 30 days that Jillian was selling on the cover of her DVD, but then again, I didn’t really expect that I would. I would get out of bed, use the ladies’ room, weigh myself, and then crawl back into bed not wanting to work out because it wasn’t “working.”
I learned that I’m getting smaller because I tried all those clothes on in my closet, and some of them that I haven’t been able to wear in a year or so now fit. Huzzah! I promise to go back in and measure myself again soon. I might’ve mentioned before that I’m pretty crap at measuring myself as I’ve discovered how difficult it is to measure yourself in the same place over and over again.
Shred Yourself. Okay don’t, but work out with me!
Fat Chick Workout: Part 3
Stay tuned for Fat Chick Work Out: Part 3 where I tell you about Ripped in 30 and how inappropriately close Jillian Michaels forces her video workout chicks to get to her when she has them “speak into the microphone.” She’s an odd bean. She swears I’m going to thank her. We’ll see.
What do you want to see me do?
PS – Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried any crazy workouts. Or … if you want me to try any crazy workouts. Let’s get it on people!
