A Year Later - Where's My Workouts??

This week marks one year since I started attempting to get fit once again.  A year ago this week I was busting my rear five days a week with Jillian Michaels - 30 Day Shred.  I then added in Jillian Michaels: No More Trouble Zones and Jillian Michaels: Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism.  Got bored with that after a month or so and moved on to Workout: One-On-One Training with Jackie and Personal Training with Jackie: Power Circuit Training, Jackie Warner DVDS (all of which I highly recommend).

I finally rounding out this past summer with P90X Extreme Home Fitness Workout Program and then my husband and I almost completed Insanity: The Ultimate Cardio Workout and Fitness DVD Program

Well, that all ended a few months ago and I've tried about five times to do another round of P90X.  Never seemed to get passed that first week.  This winter is just kicking my behind and I have zero motivation.  But, given the fact that it's been a year and right now I don't feel much more in shape than I did when I started last year, I'm back on the horse.  Today is day 3 of P90X...again.

So hopefully I will be able to post some more workout updates and reviews to help us (and by us, I mean me) shake off the last of the holiday weight gain and that stinky winter "coat", and get back into kick ass shape.  And really, have you seen what I've been eating lately???!!  Goodness, I need some way to work that off too!

Thanks to all my fitness followers for sticking with me through this little dry spell.  Here's to tight abs, strong legs and a lifted booty in the near future!

  1. thanks for the well wishes on my new job!

    sounds like you've tried a lot of different workouts. i've heard good things about jillian michaels if you can stand her personality. :)
    best wishes!

  2. Thanks Emily. Yes, I get what you are saying about Jillian. But her workouts (except for the new 6 pack one) have worked well for me so far. :)

  3. Come on girl... You can do this!!! :)

  4. Thanks for this post! I was gonna skip a workout today, but I put on a good ol' JM Level 2 Shred... no excuses.

    I know what you mean about the JM workouts getting dull after a while. But they do fit nicely into the day when you need a kick in the seat.

    You can do it!

  5. Alright ladies. I've been doin' it for 4 days now. That is my longest in a row streak since summer. Hopefully the 5th times the charm!

    Good for you Melissa. That 30 minutes is a nice fit for sure! I wish there were more choices for workouts that REALLY work.
