An open letter to my new personal trainer, Jillian Michaels.
A friend of mine mentioned your Ripped in 30 DVD and I thought I would give it a shot with my younger sister. You see, she just had a baby 2 months ago and is looking for a quick workout at home. We can’t beat 24 minutes in a day – I sure can’t. I figure I would easily give up 24 minutes to relieve these thunder thighs from some of the extra love they are carrying.
Plus, your 30 Day Shred wasn’t too bad – I managed it.
I’m two days in and I am really starting to get a feeling that this is going to be a love/hate relationship.
You’re right every time that smug comment of “I know you want to give up!” comes out of your mouth. I’m tired and honestly thinking about a nice refreshing glass of
wine water to take the ease off of these sore muscles.
Another thing, I don’t think you know how to tell time. These 3 circuits of 3-2-1 seems to be a little off on some workouts. We do the running man, not the fun 90’s M.C. Hammer dance move, but the hard core legs and arms pumping running man for at least a good minute and a half. It’s only suppose to be a minute Jillian! Wear a watch to make sure you are holding us and yourself accountable. Remember my 24 minutes are very valuable…
And thanks for the half ass modifications on some workouts. I was all for the two people behind you – one for those hardcore overachievers and another for us workout illiterate lazy bums. Why have two people behind you then have the nerve to say that there is not modification for a move?!? Not cool Jillian, not cool.
I’m going to tough it out, but not even going to sugarcoat it – not looking forward to weeks 2-4.
