Woo! Just finished Jillian Michaels' Banish Fat Boost Metabolism workout video ( just got it for $9.99 at Meier). It is seriously hard for me to need to stop for a breather while doing a video. I had to stop twice during this one - during standing mountain climbers, and just before the second set of moguls. I even think that I almost felt a little queasy about 3/4 of the way through. Another great thing about this video is that there is absolutely no equipment except for a mat - so I think it would be great to take along with me when we go out of town. Of course, for those of us who've had a few kids, pee first because there is a fair amount of jumping.

Also, I've been a bit remiss about putting my workouts up. Here's how the previous few days looked:
Sat: Jillian Michaels' 30 day Shred, Level 1 and 2
Sun: 5 mile walk on treadmill (1 hr 15min), abs
Mon: One hour yoga (Inhale)
Tuesday: off

I'll probably try to get in a bit more activity to gear up for visiting the family this weekend. My son's been asking to visit my 93-y-o great uncle for a while - so we're taking a trip to see him. The man is super sharp and seriously funny, he is a joy to be around.

Since you didn't list your workouts prior, they don't count. Do you really have any fat to banish?

Enjoy your 93 yo uncle. He sounds great.

I also saw your post on Bossy. Funny.

POD, I hate that her videos have such stupid names, but I really like her straightforward, challenging workouts. I guess the titles make them more marketable to the consumers at large - but it's up there in embarrassing checkout feeling with the simultaneous purchase of five varieties of tampons (light to superPlus) a couple of weeks ago.

I would buy only one of her DVDs called 'Bat Banish!' and hope it worked on my wings (those arm flappy things).
You prob don't have those.
Then of course there's the blap banish DVD.

That's so cool that your 93 year old uncle is still so sharp and lively. Maybe he wants to try Jillian's workouts too?

93-y-o uncle would definitely not do a Jillian Michaels workout. Not when he could be digging up garlic or getting hungarian pepper plants started, or go bird spotting, or go watch some trains. He did break his hip a couple of years ago, and that really ticked him off - so he's not as mobile as he used to be. Even pissed off, he is the best guy (besides my husband and dad, of course) that I know.

No bat wings anymore, but they run in the family for sure. That and chin hair (on women).
