I admit it, I spent an hour at home this morning so I could check out Jill's big announcement on the today show. As soon as I saw how nervous she looked I could tell she was returning to Biggest Loser. Oy.... I am very surprised considering how much she has talked about what an awful time in her life that was. Hopefully it works out better for her though I am not sure about teens on the show.
Yesterday was the big day! Day 1 of Body Revolution Round 2. I pulled on my vibrams and got down to business. I have to admit, I really thought workout 1 would be super easy- no problem. And it was no problem, but it was harder than expected. The first time around I did this, I was probably dogging it... but not this time. I did all the advanced moves- did the jump for all the various squats with the weights and all the other various advanced options she provides. I was surprised at how difficult push ups were. Do these ever get easy (or easier)? I did them from my toes this time around, but seriously, I feel I should be better at these by now.
I also did cardio 1 since I am kickstarting it. This was great. I remember how tough I thought cardio 1 was the first time around but it was soooo much easier this time around. Kickouts with arm circles still totally suck, but running man is nothing now- yay! I didn't have my heart rate monitor until sometime in phase 2 the first time around, but my calorie burns were pretty good for the early workouts and I haven't even adjusted it to my higher weight yet (we'll get to that). Keep in mind, I really pushed it today and was dripping sweat ( I barely broke a sweat with these workouts the first round).
BF- Scrambled eggs and bacon (Jill suggests canadian bacon- but we had the good stuff we got direct from the farmer so that's what I had).
Lunch- Roasted chicken, roasted veggies (beets, carrots, potato), mashed butternut squash, and salad
Snack- baked apple slices (this was actually dessert so no real 'snack' today)
Dinner- Lemon caper tilapia, leftover roasted veggies, broccoli, and a little gazpacho
