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 wained, 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…
