Is it ok to hate......

...... a workout DVD?

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Seriously. I hate it. Loathe it. Detest it. Get the idea?


Jillian Michaels 30 day shred. She is an employee of the devil.

I have owned this DVD for years. YEARS. First time I opened it was last week. No joke.
I had seen all the effort and hard work of the BL's contestants and saw it on sale at Target and thought why not. But could never get up the courage to pop it in and do it. Until last week.

I religiously do Walk Away the Pounds 3 or 4 times a week. I love Leslie Sansone. She has changed my life. I look forward to seeing her everyday!

Jillian Michael I do not.

That woman is evil. But she is changing my body for the better and I think I can respect her for that. But I don't think I will ever like her OR the DVD. Haven't been past phase 1. Couldn't really use my thigh muscles the day after I did it for the first time and it took me about 2 days for the pain to subside. But it did and this morning was day 2. Hoping for better results. Walking is GREAT but I needed something to change it up a bit.

Wish me luck!!

    I love Leslie too, and I actually adore JM, just not her workouts! emoticon I have done No More Trouble Zones exactly once (except maybe a very small part of it once before that), and I could not walk or sit/stand from a chair for two days! Don't get me wrong, I want to love them. My brain is not afraid of a butt-kicking challenge, but my body clearly is. I long to work back up to the point where I can even consider trying her smooth moves again! emoticon

    I'm laughing with you as I hobble around the house with those same sore legs. I did day one on Monday of her 30DS.

    I'm working on her 30 day shred video also, I was soo sore the first time I did it, I could barely walk up or down the stairs! I can definitely feel an improvement though and notice muscles that I didn't have before. A tip that someone gave me. If you get bored with level I after you get comfortable with it (I waited 6 workouts), go on to level II and do that with low intensity, and you can always go back to level I and do that with higher intensity.

    Best of luck to you! emoticon

    Now, you have that day 1 baseline to refer to. Each time will get easier. Just think of your upcoming beach vacation!

    Much luck. - I'm finding that the more difficult something is for me or I dislike doing it, the harder I'll push myself - just to prove I can.

    I understand how you feel! I couldn't even complete it and I know she's an amazing person and is so helpful to others but I just don't like her style of training haha. Plus, it gets really frustrating hearing the same thing over and over for ten days straight. I just started doing Insanity and was really worried it was going to be basically the same thing but it actually is a lot better! I like how Shaun T runs things.

    I wish you the best of luck though! I know how hard it can be to do workout DVDs.
