Jillian Michaels Level 2, Day 1



Hello friends! We moved to California, so I have been pretty busy. Too busy for the blog, and too busy for Jillian Michaels. I am now back on the wagon though and have started Level 2 of the 30 day shred.

The first time through is the worst, (I hope). It is terrible because you have no idea how many more exercises there are, and Jillian keeps giving you false hope: "That's IT for strength!" "Almost done!" "This is our last minute of cardio!" 

Lies. All of it, lies.

When she says these things she means you are done until she makes you do it all again in 2 minutes. Rude. The worst though, is her inability to count correctly.

I think this is common for exercise instructors. Either they can't count, or it is some kind of mind game where they tell you there are two more but then they make you do an extra rep by yelling "last one!" after you have already done two more.

Why Jillian? Do you think this trick will motivate me to plumb down into my  psyche and delve into heretofore unsuspected reservoirs of strength?

Sounds good in theory Jillian,  but alas, I have no secret strength. I just lay there and wish for death, tears and sweat mingling, while you do the "last one".

P.s.
We bought a house! We are moving in on Friday! More details later.
