In Which the Author is a Glutton for Punishment

I think this picture about sums it up, don’t you?

Me post-workout

Can you guess which workout I just did? I’ll give you a hint: It was made by a man whose first name is Billy and his last name is Blanks. Give up? It was Billy’s Ultimate Bootcamp. I am feeling a tad wobbly and jiggly. We’ll see if I’m able to walk tomorrow. I might need a walker.

In other news, I had a great birthday. Lots of food, games, friends, food, food, food. Suffice it to say, I’m glad birthdays only come once a year. Oi. I was afraid to step on the scale this morning for good reason. Sigh. That was one of the motivating factors for me to do the ultimate bootcamp this morning. Also, the Crockpot Lady is doing a wellness challenge too! Check out her site for great, healthy recipes you can make in your crockpot. She wrote a post this morning with some good information on there about eating healthy. How cool! Lots of people are getting into the whole workout/healthy eating thing lately. It dawned on me that it probably has something to do with New Year’s resolutions. Just to clarify, I am not doing this challenge as part of some New Year’s resolution. It is a resolution, but it doesn’t have anything to do with the new year. I just want to be healthy and now’s the time to do it.

I recently got some birthday money and I’m trying to figure out how to spend it. I’m contemplating buying Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred. I’ve been thinking about this for awhile, but her use of the word “shred” has me a tad concerned…I don’t know. Maybe I should just spend it on something more girly. But it was under $10 on Amazon. Has anyone ever tried it before? Jillian Michaels is from a TV show called “The Biggest Loser.” I’ve only seen part of one episode before. Basically, a group of overweight people are chosen and they go on this crazy diet and exercise regimen to see who can lose the most weight by the end of the season. Jillian Michaels is their “drill sergeant” so to speak. She is in charge of their workouts, and from what I hear, she’s pretty tough. I’m still thinking about it…

I need to go shower, if I can get off the chair. I’m ready for a nap. G’day, mates!

  1. I would totally suggest the Jillian workout. I met one of the finalist of the biggest loser last year and he said that Jillian was the best thing that ever happened to him. She’s tough but gets the job done, so to speak. I think that doing one of her workouts would be very beneficial. Let me know if you get it because I might borrow it from you. Wish i could come to topeka this weekend with the family. Unfortunately I’m stuck at my job 🙁 I’m glad you had a good birthday and I hope to see you soon!

  2. Oh! Poor Lisa! But it was worth it, right?

    I hope you are going to be posting some of the “healthy” crockpot recipes you try, that would be fun.

    Keep it up the “punishment,” you are doing a good job!
