The hate part...well, it's not really hate so much as downright resentment that she's always right and sometimes I just don't wanna do it. Her exercises aren't simple like "20 crunches, then 25 lunges, then 25 bicep curls"... no, mam. She loves a good combo move and there are always burpies or some form of a plank involved. So pretty much the whole 30-40 minutes is hard and really sucks. Hate. BUT, it's only 30-40 minutes and you're sore everywhere. Ugh, back to Love.
I usually run a few days a week and do my morning yoga while on this program and of everything I've tried in the past, this combo works better than anything else. I lose a little weight, but I mostly lose inches and tone up. The book is aimed at people who only have 5-10 pounds to lose and are looking to get definition more than big weight loss. Perfect, let's do this.
So here I am, back in the land of the burpies and frog push-ups. So far I love it, but I know better. I will soon hate it...only to love it again. But that's the beauty of the Jillian cycle. So...anyone want to do the plan with me?? ;-)
