Day 2 of 30

I'm a Biggest Loser fan. When it first come on 6 years ago (I think) I thought it was absolutely the stupidest idea ever. I did not watch the first couple of seasons. Then I think I caught part of the 3rd season and thought it was pretty good. I watched the 4th season and really enjoyed it. By the 5th season I was hooked. I was so happy when Alli won. Yea!! A woman!!! Then they did the first families and it was pretty good. Now the newest season is couples, I think that's what it's called. Anyway, the thing I love about the Biggest Loser is not that the people lose an incredible amount of weight and change their lives and do it all through eating and exercise. No. Those great reasons are not the reason I watch again and again. The real reason I watch is Jillian. I would kill to have her as my trainer. I love the way she pushes the contestants and won't take excuses. I love that because most people are capable of much more then they do but they don't push themselves. It takes someone like Jillian to force you to step outside your comfort zone and push your limits. So Jillian is the reason I turn back to the Biggest Loser over and over and over.......

Well, a couple of weeks ago it hit me that I just work out better with DVDs. During strength training I do not push myself as hard as I could. In fact, if I'm following a routine that is written on paper, no matter how hard this workout may be I will not break a sweat. That's how easy I take it. But if I'm following a DVD I will do exactly what they are doing if it kills me. I realized this and then thought, why fight it?? If it works for me go with it. So I started looking around for some new DVDs. Wait for it....You know it's coming..... I found Jillian's DVDs. I bought a 5 box set and then a separate one. I actually thing I purchased a duplicate of this set. It should be here in a couple of days so I'll see. I did the first workout today, Cardio Kick boxing, and it kicked my butt. That's what I want. I'm very pleased and can't wait to try the rest of them.

I'm excited and I'm tired. I think I'm heading off to bed.
