No Mercy Michaels!


I have just completed 6 days of Jillian Michaels Body Revolution.

Tomorrow marks my “Sunday”, meaning my day of rest.

I’m feeling really good, so I’m thinking on doing something tomorrow, like Jillian’s Kickbox Cardio.

This may very well be the absolute worst idea I have ever had…

I have done all of the workouts twice.

I really enjoy workout 1, minus the push ups, but it’s better than it was (I’m beating my personal record of 3).

I like workout 2 even more.

Cardio 1– not so much.

I mentioned the limitations with this one: jumping on a hard wood floor and Jillian really kicking your butt. I am modifying some of the moves (please, don’t tell JM) so I’m still jumping up and down, but not pounding on the floor hard.

Any chance cardio 2 will be better?

Don’t think so…

Anyway, I have another week of the same routine, then I will move on to workout 3 and 4.

I’m not following the food plan.

First of all, I don’t eat meat whereas Jillian stated you can eat food “that has a mother or grows in the ground”.

Secondly, the food plan is prepared for the American market and many of the products aren’t available in Europe.

I try to stick to a sensible diet, as I have for the past 3 months.

I will continue to keep you posted 🙂


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 😉
