Product review

So I normally don't "review" products on here directly. I may tell you what I use when I do crafts or recipes, but usually not an entire post on a certain product. Guess what? I am today. It really isn't related to anything creative, oh well! Being that the weather is getting warmer and bathing suit season is right around the corner, how about some exercise? I personally love to run outdoors and lift weights in my community gym. Unfortunately, now that Ethan is getting older it's getting harder for me to make it into the gym to lift weights. Thank goodness he still LOVES our runs :) So anyways I decided to try this:

 I don't know about you, but I love Jillian Michaels. Not really the Jillian you see on Biggest Loser, but more so on her books. She is super intelligent and seems to know what she is talking about. The proof is in the pudding. Just look at her! I really recommend any of her books. I have read most of them and enjoyed each one.

 So on with the workout video. I had a fabulous workout yesterday morning (about to do it again after I post this). I am sore in places I have never been before. The moves are not very complicated. She also shows you beginning and advanced ways of doing each move. The best part of this video you ask? Being able to do it in your own home, so people don't look at you crazy when you groan about having to do mountain climbers....again (seriously hate mountain climbers. Who in their right mind invented those!!) Another bonus: the video is only like 10 dollars on Amazon. Seriously worth it!!


Check out where I Party

Hmm. I'm kind of a P90X girl... maybe I'll try Miss J at some point. It's important to change things up.

Good work, Michelle! I admire anyone who's committed to exercise. I just can't bring myself to do it :/
Thanks for joining the party!

Andie, I ordered it from Amazon. I'm not sure if you can get it at Walmart. I would be surprised if it's not there! It is a pretty popular video.

Yeah that happens to me too when I do a routine too long. Gets to a point where you just don't see results anymore because you're dong the same thing over and over. Changing up is definitely important :)

Wow, I wish I had a stomach like that! I know what you mean about working out w/ a toddler. I used to bring Jason into my Crossfit gym everyday and he'd just sit in his carseat/pack n play. Now, he just runs/climbs everywhere and I'm scared he'll get knocked over by a kettlebell or something! So we converted our garage into a crossfit gym. It's sooo convenient! I may have to try this DVD. I need fast abs really badly. And for $10-what a deal! Thanks for the review :)
