Hello and thank you all for your kind words on my belly parasite (aka Ben Jr.). This morning I tried to squeeze the bugger out with a ton of ab work courtesy of Jillian’s 6 Week Six Pack.
This came in the mail yesterday and I was psyched to rip into it! Today is supposed to be a strength training day (per BFL) so this will count as my strength workout as I can’t get to the gym. I’m still watching Matt and he’s too old to go to the kiddie care, but too young to leave by himself for that long.
I only did the DVD once, so I can’t give a full review. But my initial thoughts are:
- Love it, I need a change from my very old school 8 min abs.
- This is HARD. TWSS.
- It moved too fast for me to keep up the first time, so I had to spend some time watching before I could try the exercises. I don’t know if it’s my old cheerleading days or what, but I am BIG ON FORM. She doesn’t breakdown the moves very much, but you are supposed to follow her (and her backup exercisers’) lead.
- I think it will take 1 or 2 more tries before I actually do the whole workout with her. At that point I can assess the true difficulty and potential results.
She suggests that you do Level 1 – five times a week for three weeks and then move to Level 2. Since I just took pics and all I’m considering taking her 6 Week Six Pack Challenge! I would like to see if I really get results before I suggest that anyone else spend 38 minutes a day letting Jillian Michaels yell at them
This DVD isn’t the equivalent of a BFL strength day(I realize I am slacking today), so we’ll see how I can work it in . Stay tuned.
Breakfast was an oldie, but goodie – waffles and eggs.
These are 2 whole wheat waffles with 1/2 cup of eggbeaters topped with syrup and ketchup. Plus some blackberries on the side because I love the way they pop in your mouth.
Question: Did you parents ever leave you at kiddie care at the gym? Did they exercise?
I have a faint memory of going to the gym with my mom. I did not like their day care at all. Luckily, we didn’t go that often. Sorry mom.
