If you LOVE to Read!

Funny Cry for Help Ecard: I fear my obsession with reading someecards is bordering intervention worthy.

Funny Workplace Ecard: My most marketable office skill is being able to conceal the fact that I'm bringing reading material into the bathroom.

Funny Weekend Ecard: I enjoy spending weekend nights reading about interesting things I could have been doing.

Funny Encouragement Ecard: I'm sure Oprah would've recommended your book if you ever wrote it.

Armitage whets our appetite and reads North & South 1

I adore North & South

I adore Richard Armitage reading.

Why, Oh Why weren’t the two properly  combined?

Here is an excerpt, which is too short, but amazing nonetheless…

 

Jillian Michaels- Sadist. Me- Masochist…

 

Jillian Michael, I have decided to take your challenge and embark of The Body Revolution.

Yes, I seem to be a masochistic fool!

That’s alright, because Michaels is a bit of a sadist, so this works out perfectly.

Shame I don’t work out perfectly 😉

If you haven’t heard about the system, check it out.

I have already done a few days of Ripped in 30 Days and 30 Day Shred.

Loved it!

But I flaked out, taking a day rest, because I was in so much pain and was walking around like a bow-legged  cowboy.

Then one day turned into a week, then Fanstra 3 hit and excesses came easy.

Now I’m back!

The system is separated into 3 Phases, each lasting a month, 6 days of workout and 1 day of rest.

As I didn’t start on Friday, my rest day will be on Thursday.

Yesterday I did Workout 1 from Phase 1 in the morning (5.30 am) and Cardio 1 in the evening.

This morning I moved on to Workout 2 from Phase 1 and I still have Cardio 1 to do.

 Lucky me…

So, how is it?

Hard, but doable. I am following the easier versions of exercises and not ashamed of it at all.

From the exercises I have tried, Cardio 1 is my least favorite.

I live in a block of flats and jumping up and down on a hard wooden floor would probably send my neighbours to the loony bin, so I’m trying to modify the movements.

 And don’t get me started on “suicide run”.

Really, Jillian? REALLY???

But, as always, Michaels delivers exercises that will make you sweat and motivates you to see it through.

How the hell does she know you’re about to quit?

Witchcraft is my guess…

My goal is to loose 10 kg, which is about 22 lbs.

Doable, me thinks.

May the force be with me!

I’ll keep you posted 😉
