Ok, so you might remember that for a while I was doing a weekly Jillian Michaels Body Revolution Review. I reviewed up through week 6 and Cardio 2, then the reviews suddenly stopped… I completed workouts for weeks 7 and 8, although I didn’t review them, and I started Cardio 3 and weeks 9-10. One night after doing workout 9 or 10, I rolled over and woke up from a dead sleep, my muscles were so sore and in pain that the simple movement woke me up. It was then that thought to myself, “Why am I doing this to myself?!”
My love for Jillian has not waned, but at this point in my life things are just so busy that I cannot be losing sleep or hobbling around due to muscles that are so stiff and sore from my workouts. I hate to give up on something that I have started, but I cannot complete the body revolution at this point.
I am going to be honest, the moves in Cardio 3 are insane! I did not enjoy the workout at all. I found myself dreading it. I love to exercise, I look forward to it everyday, and don’t want it to become a chore due to the type of workouts I am doing. I love to challenge myself with my workouts, but I cannot risk injury while doing it.
So for now, my “Body Revolution” is on hold…

Initially, I found Jillian Michaels’ approach to exercise and dieting highly motivational. Her intense workouts and strict dietary guidelines pushed me to achieve remarkable physical results, which fueled my motivation and determination. I embraced her no-nonsense attitude and believed that pushing my body to its limits was the only way to achieve success. However, as time went on, I began to realize that this approach was taking a toll on my mental health. The relentless pursuit of physical perfection and the constant pressure I placed on myself led to feelings of anxiety, guilt, and a distorted body image. It was then that I decided to change my perspective and adopt a more balanced and loving approach to my body. By prioritizing self-compassion, listening to my body’s needs, and embracing acceptance, I discovered a newfound sense of mental well-being. This shift in thinking allowed me to find joy in movement, cultivate a positive relationship with my body, and ultimately, achieve a healthier and more sustainable approach to overall well-being.
