Week 2: Jillian Michaels Body Revolution

Hope you guys are having a great Labor Day! Week 2 is in the books and I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things. This week’s schedule was the same as the previous week.

This past week was pretty rough in the stress department. With all of my studying and freaking out about the RD exam (thank goodness I passed), exercise did not sound like a good time. However, I still did it and it was a big help. Using up all of those stress hormones and getting my sweat on really helped reduce my anxiety and clear my head.  It was so nice to take 30 minutes to focus on me and be able to push all of that other stuff out of my brain.

I did veer from the schedule a bit. Thursday was exam day, and after a long day on the road and taking my exam, I was exhausted. So, I made the executive decision to take a rest day on Thursday and shift everything else forward one day. On Sunday, we went to the pool, so I counted that as my cardio.

I’m happy to report that things were a lot easier this week. It’s amazing how quickly you can lose your strength, but also how fast you can get it back. Gotta love that.

I thought y’all might like to see my set up. One of the great things about these workouts is you don’t need a ton of equipment or space. All you need is

  1. A mat, if you’re working out on a hard surface.
  2. A resistance band (comes with the program).
  3. Hand weights. I have sets of 3 lb, 5 lb, and 8 lb weights.

As you can see, I don’t have a ton of space, but i’s enough to get the job done!

This week starts a new set of DVDs, so that will be fun! Something new to work at.

Did you guys do any fun food stuff this holiday weekend? Do you use exercise as a stress reliever? Let me know in comments below!

  1. I just worked out this morning after two days of rest and eating poorly! I need to get back into it, and I did Jillian michaels Killer Abs Level 1. I love it! Like you mentioned above, it feels really good to do something for myself AND sweat out all worries/toxins. I am a real JM fan as I have completed her Ripped in 30 and the 30 day Shred. I thought about trying her Body Revolution as well b/c I heard nothing but great things about it!
