Did anyone get a chance to watch Jillian’s new show called Losing It With Jillian? I watched about half of it and shut it off. I was pretty excited about a new show by Jillian because I appreciate her workout ethic, dvds, iFit cards, and her show, the Biggest Loser. They have always been very hard and rewarding. I wasn’t a fan of this show because it seemed like all she did was SCREAM at the contestants. I understand this is the way that she tries to motivate people, but I personally can’t be motivated like that. I get motivated by compliments and constructive criticism, not screaming and spitting in my face!
I’m also not a fan because she only works with a family for one week. That’s not enough time to transform someone’s body. I understand she can teach them some things within a week, but it’s just not long enough to really change your life. Maybe I’m wrong about the show because I turned it off early. Does she challenge them at weight loss over a long period of time and then come back and check on them? If the show was like that, I’d watch it much more often. We’ll see…maybe I’ll give Killian another shot next week.
**Update** I just read Losing It With Jillian’s website and they DO have a follow up visit a few months later to see how they have done. Alright, I like the show again 🙂
I hit up the gym last night and did all upper body lifting. I think I lifted for about an hour and then ran a 5k on the treadmill. Took about 31 minutes because I walked a little bit in the beginning. My feet started to hurt and I’ve come to realize it’s my shoes. My shoes are completely worn down. I’ve had them for entirely to long. So, I decided to order new shoes!!! I’m so pumped about them to get here. I ordered them from nike.com and can’t wait!!! I like Nike’s because they have the Nike+ sensor slot in the sole so you can track your workouts. Here’s a picture of the shoes that I can’t wait to get here!!
Hopefully they aren’t hard to break in. Breaking in shoes is what keeps me from buying new ones more often.
Well at least it’s Wednesday already and only feels like Tuesday! Have a great hump day 🙂
