I'm still working on 30DS, after that I will get either Ripped in 30 or Body Revolution. I will follow this thread to see how it goes.

Good luck!!

Day 1 tomorrow!! Got me a set of 5, 8, and 10 pounders to begin. I have one of those adjustable weight sets but I find them too cumbersome and never used them much. Psyched to start, I'll take some before pictures and measurements tomorrow!!

My am workout is done! I have to figure out my heart rate monitor cause its been over a year since I've used it. I have some weaknesses to work on. I thought my right leg was stronger than my left but the balance work proved me wrong. Planks and push ups were modified so I have to work on building on those too as well as abs. I hate working abs.

It's 6:30am now and I'm done!

What do you think?

Is there some science to splitting the workouts or did she do it because she thought people would commit better having the workouts broken up?

I completed wrkout 1 and cardio 1 2day as a extra wrkout. I made it thru both nonstop. I will say the running man for me in cardio 1 was a killer. The suicides weren't that bad but I use to do them in the past in high school so I'm use to it. 2mrw I'm onto wrkout 2 and I mite throw in cardio 1 again as a extra wrkout but we'll see. Keep up the gr9 wrk everybody

Did the first DVD. Easier than I taught, but I know it won't be easy all the way. I think of it as a warm up for what's to come! Dvd 2 tomorrow... can't wait.

Day one done. Did measurements and tons of pictures from every angle before.

I LOVED IT!!! Chalene just doesn't motivate me. I usually hate working out at home. This is the first time I do a Jillian workout and it was awesome (the Wii game, not so much, but totally different with the DVD experience). This was actually fun and I'm looking forward to tomorrow.

I train for triathlons so my triathlon training today was a 36 minute swim. Also did an hour of Zumba at the gym. My week's going to end up with about 3 hours of Jillian, 6 hours of TurboKick/Zumba at the gym, one hour cross-train class, 1:25 swim, 5:05 bike, and 0:50 run. Started my Triathlon training at the beginning of the year so still going low-volume, and it will slowly overtake the TurboKicks and Zumba.

Can't wait to take 30-day pictures!! I love it that it's only 30 minutes a day because it's very easy to fit. I just wasn't expecting it to be this much fun.

The 5/8/10 weight combination I got was perfect. Also how brilliant is to have a band that's adjustable? That band's awesome and if she sells others like that with more resistance I'll be getting them.

I'm a Jillian convert!! I actually pointed to the screen and said out loud "Love you Jillian" at the end lol

Had to modify some things. Just plan to show up every day for 30 hours minus rest day and take 0/30/60/90 day pics and see what happens. If you all don't mind belly shots I'll post them here lol But it's not pretty!! ;)

Forgot to add, not following her eating plan. I want to reach goal by 7/3/12, third year anniversary of losing weight, so I need ~500-1000 calorie deficit per day. I'm following a 1200 calorie per day regime, eating whatever I want to keep me satisfied at those calories, until I reach goal, which will be in about 14 weeks if I keep at 1K deficit per day. Not forever, just for a few more weeks!!

I just wanted to see if I had lost ne weight and even though it doesn't count until Sun morn I lose 2.2 lbs after 1 day. Can't wait to see my results after wk 1 is done

PhillyGirl2012
02-28-2012, 08:11 PM
Workout 2 is done! I'm actually looking forward to a cardio only day...lol. My soreness got better as the day went along, but I know I'll be sore tomorrow.

GatorDeb

Half an hour six days a week. But it feels like five minutes, it's that much fun :( Now day 2 was 36 minutes with the cooldown and warmup and such so it's around 30 minutes each. Strength strength cardio strength strength cardio.

jmfan317
02-29-2012, 03:08 PM
Day 3 done I completed cardio 1. 2mrw is wrkout 1. Soon wk 1 will be done

Mahora
02-29-2012, 04:30 PM
Will complete the cardio tonight... Can't wait to get my butt kick! I was wondering... will you gals weight in every week, after each phase or at the end only? I wanted to wait at the end but don't think I can wait!

jmfan317
02-29-2012, 05:01 PM
Me I'm guna weigh in every Sun morn since its the rest day and all 6 wrkouts are done that wk.

PhillyGirl2012
02-29-2012, 07:08 PM
Wow, just did cardio 1! Mimi had me laughing and mimicking her moves during the last circuit run. I almost wasn't gonna do it and do a cardio in its place but I got it done! I don't think my downstairs neighbors appreciated the suicides though.

Weigh in? I wasn't going to, but I think I will on sunday. I've not been following her food plan, nor logging my food. I have changed a lot of my eating habits though so we will see where I am. I don't expect a change yet though.

See ya tomorrow!

Mahora
03-01-2012, 03:34 PM
Ok.. think i'll weigh in after each phase... Cardio 1 is the best cardio I ever had with Jillian, it's so much fun. Felt like 5 minutes to me!

Muffin
03-01-2012, 05:37 PM
I see everyone is doing great! I'm almost done with week 2 and just loving it. So far I been able to do all the moves, but the planks :( I need to work more on this to get stronger.

I'm planning on do my weigh in on Sundays.
How are you doing with your diets? and drinking water?

PhillyGirl2012
03-01-2012, 06:42 PM
Workout 1 is done! I think I can increase the weight the next go around. I finally figured out my heart rate monitor and it says I burned 477 calories.

Muffin, my diet is ok. I'm eating mainly whole foods. I do have my snacks that are made with wholesome stuff. My fav brand is Back to Nature. I found them via the Dr Oz show. I need to work on eating more vegetables. Water is also a challenge, but I'm getting better with it.

My wife and I started this on Monday and are doing the 7 Day Metabolic blast to start with. Following the diet and doing the twice daily workout. Is anybody else doing this?

PhillyGirl2012
03-02-2012, 06:56 AM
ericc, we are at different points in the program on this thread.

Group Question,
Did anyone else read this for phase 1 "The goal of Phase 1 is to remove your initial 20-30 pounds and prepare you for the intensity of Phase 2." Sooo, for those of us with weight to lose...thoughts?

03-02-2012, 12:39 PM
PhillyGirl I totally missed that missed that I gotta read that all I have it a total of 30 pounds to lose then if I did lose that all I wud be doin is toned up. As well as buildin muscle. My diet is goin gr8 I've been eatin 1200 cals a day with my own meal plan and journal down everythin in her 90 day journal. Just did day 5 wrkout 2 2mrw is the last day of cardio 1 this wk til nxt wk when I start wk 2

Muffin
03-03-2012, 10:00 AM
PhillyGirl, I did read that :) However, I don't think this apply to someone that has been eating healthy and exercising regularly. Usually when you first start a exercise plan and a diet you lose a lot of weight, but pretty much it's just water retention.

In my case I been clean eating and exercising for almost a year now, so my body is adjust to this routine. The first week I did follow her kickstart menu but only did the AM exercises, however I rode the bike pretty much everyday for added cardio and instead of losing I gain 4lbs :( ???

This week I went back to my normal clean eating diet with calories ranging between 1200-1300 daily and so far I have lost 8lbs. I been doing her rotation and adding 1 hour of biking daily.

Mahora
03-03-2012, 10:06 AM
I have a question regarding the calories intake. I use MyFitnessPal to keep track of my calories and try to stay on a 1200 calories daily. When you say you are eating 1200 calories daily does that included your exercise? On MyFitnessPal when I train it adds on calories I can eat. For example, I start my day with 1200 if I burn 300 calories, my journal says I can eat 1500. My questions is do you eat only 1200 calories no matter how much you exercise? Thanks for the help!

jmfan317
03-03-2012, 02:22 PM
Completed wk 1 as of 2day. Happy to have a rest day 2mrw. 2mrw is weigh in I'm hopin I lost sum weight. I won't be checkin my measurements til the whole program is done.

I am considering getting this workout but can't seem to find out how the plan is laid out. Is it a 7 days a week workout plan, 5 days a week? If someone who is doing the workout could let me know I would really appreciate it!! Thanks!!

The plan is very easy. It's a 6 days a week plan. You have 3 phases of 4 weeks each. Here is an example of the first week:
Monday: Workout1
Tuesday: Workout2
Wednesday:Cardio1
Thursday: Workout1
Friday: Workout2
Saturday: Cardio 1
Sunday: Rest

All the workouts are 30 minutes and very enjoyable. You also have a meal plan with the program but I don't follow it.

Hope this can be helpfull! :)

03-04-2012, 12:06 PM
I don't follow the meal plan either unless it may be a snax listed but that about it. So I weighed in this morn since yesterday I completed wk 1 and 2day is my rest day. I'm down 4.6 lbs just from wk 1. Can't wait to see wat wk 2 brings me.

Muffin
03-04-2012, 01:56 PM
Mahora, I just make sure I eat about 1200 no matter how much I exercise. I might go a bit higher one or two days, but do not exceed 1400 calories.

jmfan317- congrats girl, good luck next week!

I weight in this morning and I'm down a total of 8lbs now I'm moving to week 3.

I don't think exercise is a factor because we burn different calories. Your journal says you can eat 1500 because its subtracting the 300 calories from exercise leaving you with 1200. I would not eat only 1200 no matter the exercise. Even 1200 is too low. If you exercised like I did on friday and burned 600 calories, that leaves only 600 for my body to use throughout the day if sticking to 1200 a day calorie allotment.

So this is my first post. I started Jillian's plan yesterday. Workout 1 was a beast. My shoulders are sore, but it feels good to work out. I can't wait to start losing weight and getting healthy.

quickfamilee
03-06-2012, 06:56 PM
Started Jillian's body revolution yesterday and I am feeling pretty good. The diet is hard for me being I'm very picky and don't like much of the food choices, but I'm doing it :) Anyhow know whether or not you can drink anything besides water?

PhillyGirl2012
03-06-2012, 07:54 PM
I missed yesterday's workout. I'm guessing because of recovery time that I can't make up the workout I missed which was workout 1. Tonight I did workout 2 for a calorie burn of 529 calories. I used 8lbs for all moves. Last time I dropped the weight doing the step ups in the last circuit. This time I held them. Cardio day tomorrow!

Question, How do you how many calories your burning for your workout. Do you use your heartrate? Thanks.:^:

jmfan317
03-07-2012, 03:16 PM
Just finished cardio 1 OMG 3 more days of wk 2 then I'm movin on to wk 3 I'm scaried but excited

PhillyGirl2012
03-07-2012, 08:43 PM
Question, How do you how many calories your burning for your workout. Do you use your heartrate? Thanks.:^:

Heart rate monitor. You set it up with entering your weight and your max heart rate. It calculates 4 zones and tells your heart rate in each zone and the total amount of calories burned. I went on sparkpeople (that's the website I use to log my food/workouts) to see what exercise came close to my calories burned today and 41 minutes aerobics high impact was 479 and if you use 35 minutes for circuit training bootcamp it came to 468. So you could use a site like this and the timeframes to get a guesstimate of your calories burned for your workout.

Tonight was cardio 1 and 476 calories burned. I really pushed through with every circuit. Even the punch outs I held a continuous squat even though it wasn't scripted for that move. My little bonus move.

PhillyGirl2012

Just finished cardio 1 OMG 3 more days of wk 2 then I'm movin on to wk 3 I'm scaried but excited

I think I'm gonna tack on another week of this format before moving to week 3. Mainly because of the weight loss in moving forward.

How have your results been so far?

jmfan317
03-09-2012, 11:43 AM
Did wrkout 2 this mornin. I also did her wrkout 3 toning and abs for kickbox fastfix. That dvd ain't no joke got me pourin sweat and it was only 20 mins. 2mrw is cardio 1 then I have completed wk 2 of body rev. Woo Hoo!

PhillyGirl2012
03-09-2012, 02:25 PM
I did my wrkout 2 today. I think I'm guna do Jillian's cardio kickbox frm her biggest winner series cuz 2mrw is cardio 1

Wow...I was thinking that too! I love that workout for its intensity, yet it has simple moves.

I burned all of phase 1 workouts onto a dvd and cardio kickbox is on it along with a couple of stretch workouts. I did this so I wouldn't need to fumble with dvd's

For week 1 I've lost almost 5 pounds...like 4.8lbs. I am less giggly in my middle and feel my legs and booty firming up. I am in week 2 now which ends on Sunday.

GROUP QUESTION:

I must have the upper body strength of an infant cause I just can't do them. They feel uncomfortable to do and I'm very unsuccessful. I know I just started, but it is a move that's in other workouts too.

Anybody have any pointers for doing pushups or is it just practice makes perfect?

jmfan317
03-09-2012, 02:58 PM
I haven't tried actual push ups until I start wrkout 3 on mon I've been doin modified push ups. I think its a buildin upper body strength thing. We'll see if I'm able to do them on Mon. I have done push ups since hs in wat 2000 and 2001 and that was cuz I was in ROTC. If not then I just have to build up to them.

PhillyGirl2012
03-09-2012, 04:48 PM
Yeah, modified pushups are a problem for me. I've done it on the arm of my sofa which was okay, just didn't feel as accomplished being able to bang em out on the floor.

Muffin
03-10-2012, 10:17 AM
I'm done with week 3 and ready to start next week :) Her workouts are getting harder and faster, but I'm noticing that my body is getting stronger.

This is what I did this week:

M- Workout3
Bike ride 8miles
T- Workout4
Elliptical HIIT 30 min
W- Cardio 1
Th- Workout3
Run 3.2 miles
F- Workout 4
Run 3.2 miles
S- Cardio 1

@PhillyGirl, if you are having trouble doing pushup on your knees, you can try the wall push up. Then when you start feeling stronger you can move to the knee one. I can only do 2 military pushups, and the rest on my knees. Planks are going to help you get stronger on your upper body so it will eventually help you with the push ups.
Wow, girl you are burning lots of calories. I have a polar watch and the most I burn is when I do cardio 1 and it's about 350 calories with the other workouts, I normally burn between 260 to 300 calories.

PhillyGirl2012
03-10-2012, 10:38 AM
Muffin,
I think I read somewhere that the more fit you are the harder it is to burn calories. I can tell by the log you wrote that you are way more fit then me. I thought about modifying in that way so thanks for the advice.

jmfan317
03-10-2012, 04:03 PM

Today is a rest day for me b4 the start wrkout 3 & 4 this wk. Lookin forward to it. I did my weigh in this wk and I'm down 1 lb. I'm @ 166.8 lbs another lose which is gud hope it keeps goin in the same direction. Total in 2 wks I'm lost 5.6 lbs. Not bad if I do say so myself. Can't wait to see wat this upcomin wk brings me.

PhillyGirl2012

Off to try a new recipe and housecleaning today.

03-11-2012, 11:27 PM
Had a great rest day :) I'm ready for week 4, good luck next week everyone and lets hope we can shred some lbs!

PhillyGirl, hope you didn't get too tired after cleaning. I did house cleaning yesterday including laundry and bathrooms. How was your new recipe?

Mahora
03-12-2012, 08:34 PM
Did workout 3 2day for the first time... I must admit that I struggled with my balance... even during cool down!

I want to wait before phase 1 is done before weight in, but I feel like I've gained weight (pants are tight...) anyone have ideas on why that is... I feel a bit discouraged about all this.

Also I don't have device to track my calory loss and I have a hard time to fugure how much calories I really burn during these workouts. Feels like I would burn a lot more in 30 minutes of treadmill...

lillisa81
03-12-2012, 08:45 PM
I started day 1 today. I'm starting with the kick start week, menu and extra workout! I love it so far.

Mahora- you can use a calculator to calculate how many calories you burned. I do weight watchers and they have one on their website.
Try this http://www.caloriesperhour.com/index_burn.php
Are you following her suggested menu?

Mahora
03-13-2012, 08:53 AM
I'm not following the proposed diet because it's a bit complicated for me an also much expensive. I've been eating well and sticking to 1200 calories intake. Before Body Revolution I was pretty stable with my weight. As for the calories calculator I use the one with MyFitnessPal, it's just that I'm not sure how accurate it is. I never know if I should put circuit training or basic aerobic. 300 calories seems alot for 30 minutes workout.

PhillyGirl2012

PhillyGirl, hope you didn't get too tired after cleaning. I did house cleaning yesterday including laundry and bathrooms. How was your new recipe?

Muffin, I tried a blueberry muffin recipe from sparkpeople that was not so how. I tried a recipe called Cloud Pancake that was super good. I made Rachel Ray's Sausage, Kale and Lentil soup that was good and extremely filling. Because of my experiments cleaning was minimal. Like you I did get to laundry and bathroom cleaning.

PhillyGirl2012
03-13-2012, 04:43 PM
mahora, 300 calories is a lot. I burn more than that doing the three workouts I've done so far from the program. I do weight more than you though.

I'm not following her meal plan either. I am paying close attention to eating healthier options. I also stopped eating out so much. As far as calories, for me 1200 calories is much too low. If you factor in exercise calories your body is surviving on less than 1000 calories. That's not good. I've placed my daily calorie count between 1400 and 1700.

I'm doing an extra week of workouts 1, 2 and cardio 1 before moving on. I'm happy to report that I weighed this morning and I'm out of the 200 weight class. So, so far I've lost 7lbs for my two week effort. I LOVE progress!

Awesome! Good job! I can't wait to see these kind of results!

Day 2 for me and it's going great. I don't find her meal plan to be too little in calories. It's about what I eat normally, just more healthy options and less empty calorie snacks. I also follow weight watchers and what I'm eating has been the right number of points I get daily.

Hi people,
You are so enthusiastic, but will you pl tell me what changes you observe in your body?
Are you loosing inches or weight also?

Muffin
03-13-2012, 09:37 PM
@Puneri -- I haven't measure my self yet (will do on Sunday when I'm done with phas1) but I can see my legs, arms and stomach much smaller. However, adding some type of cardio on a daily basics (running, Elliptical, or bicycle)

@Mahora -- The calories you burn depends on your body and your physical condition. In my case in one of Jillian's workouts I can lose from 275 to 300 calories. Her workouts are a type of HIIT where you don't burn lots of calories right a way, but your body keeps burning more calories during the day. Also keep in mind what are you eating is not the same on eating 1200 calories in a clean eating than eating 1200 calories with lots of carbs and sugars. You don't have to follow her meal plan but it's recommended to eat clean and healthier, meaning lots of veggies, protein and less carbs (good ones)

When I did week 1 I gain 4lbs but in week 2 I lost 8lbs, so perhaps your body is just adjusting as mine was doing. I would recommend using a journal.

Thank you everyone for your answers.

@Muffin, I also watch carbs and eat lot of veggies, fruits and lean meat. I try to eat organic as much I a can. I hope my body will adjust like yours did.

2morrow is cardio day, I might add some running in the evening.

2 more weeks before my first weight in! fingers crossed!

I finished cardio this morning and had poached eggs for breakfast! I just love that breakfast and I've never been big on avocado! I'm plan to make the vegetable soup for lunch. Has anyone made that yet?

Did anyone else get a very cheap "replacement" resistance band? I got a note saying they were out of the black one and sent a replacement. My replacement is horrible, very small and awkward. I'm VERY short and I can't wrap the band around my feet more than once.

Anyway, I called customer service this morning to ask about it. They are sending me out the "better one" (as the cs rep referred to it) when it becomes available and refunding $10. Anyone else that got the cheap replacement, it might be worth a phone call if you are not happy with the replacement. I'm very happy with their customer service.

Here is my breakfast and dinner from last night. These are my two favorite meals on the kickstart menu! I made a few changes to the dinner. The turkey burger is on a bed of spinach on tomato slices and a portabello mushroom cap. I also dipped it in some mustard.

I've never had brussel sprouts before, and these are delicious!

Hey guys, I'm thinking of starting this program but I'm wondering if it's effective for people that already have a pretty high level of fitness. Right now I am doing CrossFit and have been for over a year (thinking of taking a break) so I'm pretty strong. Anyone with a strength training background doing this? Are you finding it tough/effective?

This is my first post, as I am new to this thread. I am so encouraged reading all of your posts!! I am a faithful diet and fail :( I am determined to not quit this time!!! I received my videos and began Body Revolution on Saturday as I need Friday to be my rest day. After the first two days with the cardio in the evening, today is only going to be one cardio and not a double cardio. My body will thank me I am sure!!!

I am curious though, because I am not as concerned about the pounds lost as I am the inches........how is the success among you all for inches lost?

At first I was going to do doubles, but ended up retracting after the first workout. I did not measure, and this may be tmi, but I'll share anyway. I used a bra band extender. Last week I removed it because apparently I've gotten smaller. I also feel my tummy roll getting smaller. Both are good results of the program.

Hi All! Week 2 starts for me today! I weighed in and I was down to 123, that's a 4 lb lost the first week. I 1/2 followed kickstart. I didn't do the extra cardio and followed the diet about 90%.

I have my meal plan for the week all planned out. After hearing how good the sweet potato hash was, I couldn't wait to make it this morning!

@JDuffer- I am the same way. I try something and then don't see results and quit and try something different. I'm planning to see this through and hopefully with the motivation and encouragement here we will see this through to 90 days. Good luck!

JDuffer
03-19-2012, 01:27 PM

No workout yesterday on account of letting my hurt foot rest.

Tonight I started my week with workout 3. I'm having serious trouble with some of those moves like plank and bringing your foot forward and going into crow-I think that's what she called it. I felt like I was all over the map with following her. My body was shaking even after the workout so I was really trying. One thing I will say was that I did the jumping jacks with ease and she was right my body was ready for it. I still burned a good amount of calories for my effort.

Tomorrow is workout 4

Caught the flu so couldn't train from Saturday to Monday... I've decide to still do all my workouts this week even if that means no rest for me Sunday. It's my last week of phase 1... can't wait to weight in next Monday but my hopes are low since I didn't eat well while being sick. :-(

Just like Muffin I still struggle with the military push ups, I manage to do 5-6 in a row and then have to get on my knees. Balance is also an issu, specially during the plank/cressant move.

Hang in there everyone, if the weight loss isn't as fast as you think at least you are not gaining...that's what I always tell myself! (plus I feel stronger) :-)

So I did the Phase 1 Workout 4 last night and I was sweating. I felt a little silly because as I was doing the leg lifts and the plummer walked right in and looked at me funny as if to say people don't usually work out while people are in their house. I just let my husband take care of them. I don't care I like working out and I am 2 more pounds down from last week so yeah!!

scifygirl- yay for you 2lbs loss :)

Mahora -- I do hate those planks/creassant moves. Every day I'm trying to work on those military push ups. I can do a few not going all the way down, but if I try to go very low, I can't do any :(

Hello everyone... Newbie in the house! I'm on day 4 with LOTS of weight to lose, and I am following the kickstart diet to the T... Am finally able to move again... day 1 & 2 just killed me. Have done the WO1 for today, the only thing left is the cardio (which i am dreading)

Quick question: Does anyone else find the "running man" problematic? I can do everything else INCLUDING the suicides which I don't mind (I do 24 per circuit), but running man... well I can't. Today I am going to not think about them, and turn my back from the screen when I'm doing them...and keep my eyes on the clock, I mean one minute is nothing right? Any suggestions anyone?

don't feel bad about the running man everytime i do them i have to go to the restroom because the running man make me empty my bladder and my feet have a hard time moving back and forth in sequence with a jump i just do knee lifts instead

Mahora
03-22-2012, 11:35 AM
@ enlightenme. The running is by far the hardest part of cardio 1 for me too...I have to put myself in a special state of mind! I don't think that looking at the clook will help, for me it does the contrary it seems like seconds are sooooo slow. I wish I could help but I guess it's just one one those things you just gotta get thru.

Congrats on your weight loss journey and welcome to this forum!

@booboo52 - re bladder - ME TOO!! just on the first circuit though. I think it's time for Kegels action :dizzy:

Do you guys know of anyone who's completed Phase 1 and how much they've lost? She talks about the initial 20-30lbs... What's your take on that?

@ enlightenme I'm finishing phase 1 this week and didn't weight in yet. I didn't do the kick start and I follow my own diet plan (1200 calories a day) (cheated a bit on weekends). For me losing 20 pounds in first phase is impossible since it's the total weight I would like to loose. I guess that the 20 pounds is for people who follow the diet plan and have lots to loose. As for feeling thight, I experienced the same thing during the first 2 weeks of the program, I was tight in all my pants, but it slowly came back to normal. I'll weight in Monday, hoping i've lost something.

Concerning the running man... sorry didn't find any tricks just think about the "why" I guess it helps. Hang in there the running man is only twice a week (so 6 minutes a week) not that bad when you look at it this way!

I'm doing the kickstart program.. so it's runningman marathon! more like 24 minutes! but you're right... I'll have to think real hard as to the "why". I'm going to follow her eating plan for a month and see where it takes me!

Great that you've got 20lbs! You should be so proud. And I hope to be there in no time too, just so i can hit the maintenance phase for once in my life!! I know i'll get there too!

I've fallen off track a bit this week. I've followed the plan but missed two workouts this week. Today's eating wasn't exactly on plan but not bad. I'm going to do cardio tomorrow to try to make up for the missed workouts and keep my eating on plan tomorrow. I saw 122 on the scale earlier this week, which would be a total loss of 5 lbs in the first two weeks. We'll see what the scale officially says on Monday. It's been a long time since I've see that number.

I'm looking forward to the new workouts this week. I'm starting week 3 on Monday.

scifygirl- congrats on the loss!
enlightenme2- congrats on your loss, that's great!

What is everyone eating? I don't really care for the dinner options in the book. I think I'm going to switch it up this week.

Ok so I weight in today and lost 4 pounds in 4 weeks. I feel a bit disappointed, but it's still a lost. I know I'm small and it's make it harder to loose weight. I alos feel stronger so that's another gain.

Alos did the first DVD of phase 2 this morning! Oufff I had a hard time finishing the last circuit. And I don't think anyone hates mountain crimbler more than I do grrr!

Well i'll keep on going and hope to shed more pounds in the next 4 weeks.

No kidding! At the end, I had a hard time lifting my own body weight! Last week end I went to buy heavier weight as I felt stronger.... lets just say that I looked at them this morning and told myself: Not now for sure! LOL :D

I did Cardio 2 for the 1st time this wk. OMG that kicked my butt. They butt kicks jumpin jacks high knees jump rope criss cross jacks.Other things I can't think of. They were 30 secs each but it had me pouring. I never realized how much I dislike burpees. Have fun with Cardio 2 its killer.

Really enjoyed cardio 2 as well, I prefer 30 sec. sets. But don't mistake me, it was really hard! I kept on thinking: what will workout 3 bring??

JMFAN...burpees and mountain climbers are my two worst exercise... and they are both on this phase!! plus the running man... ouff

I still manage to enjoy the workout! Keep up everyone!

I finally got my JM Body Revolution kit today, I've been trying for about a month now to order it but they were on back order and then I didn't have the right type of card but anyways it's here and I will begin on Monday; kinda fits since it's the beginning of the month :D
I'm so nervous, I know the hardest part for me will be the diet plan but I have to make these changes in my life or I won't achieve my goals. I've been weening myself off of soda and sweets, my two weaknesses, for the past two weeks but I have to go cold turkey on Monday. Any suggestions for a sweets addict?
Also, I've been drinking more water but I get bored easily with water and I was wondering what everyone else drinks besides water? I like gatorade, I drink the low-calorie kind and it's been helping me get off of sodas.
Thanks!

I was listening to one of Jillian's podcasts the other day and someone asked this question on how to get off soda. She said you have to quit the soda cold turkey but not the caffeine. You can have I think it's 400 mg of caffeine per day so you can get it in coffee or tea. She said to get some unflavored sparkling water and put just a splash of fruit juice in it. This is a struggle for me as well but if you can go one day then shoot for two etc. She said do it for 30 days and you won't even like the taste anymore. But she said DO NOT cut the caffeine cold turkey or your head will split open! I'm starting Phase 2 Monday. Hang in there! It's hard but so worth it!! Also try putting Mio in your water. It has no calories & makes your water taste so good. Also try drinking it very cold. That helps me.

Does anyone know how many calories does Cardio1 burn?

I haven't heard of anyone that has lost that much. I think you lose more inches than pounds in the first phase. On the Facebook page I saw one lady hadn't lost any pounds but lost 17 inches. I have lost 5 lbs and 7.5 inches in the first phase. I have been sticking to the calories that she suggests but not following her diet plan exactly. Some people do 2 workouts in one day and I have not done that either. Im sure you will lose more if you do that. I have an old injury and I was trying not to aggravate it by doing two in 1 day. (I do also remember reading on the FB page that someone said you lose more inches in phase 1 and lose more pounds in phase 2. I don't know if that's true but I hope so.)

Thank you! Yea I can usually go about two days without a soda but then I start to crave it like crazy and get plenty of headaches. As far as caffeine goes, I'll have to figure something else out because I don't like coffee or tea. I look forward to 30 days from now lol! I remember when I stopped drinking regular sodas and started drinking diet a few years ago, now I can't stand the taste of most regular sodas, too much sugar! I do like water, especially ice cold, I just get tired of drinking the same thing everyday.

Hi guys I'm back. This past week I went to Texas and just came back last night. I was able to run, but did not do the DVD's, my laptop cd didn't work :mad: I did my best to eat healthy and to stay with in 1200-1500 calories, but there were days that I ate way too much.
I decided to start all over again, so I will be starting phase 1 tomorrow :D

Some of you were asking how much did we lose in phase 1. I lost 10lbs and pretty much all of them were during the first 2 weeks. I did stick to the calories she suggested but didn't follow her menu 100%. Most of the time exercise twice (her dvds and added some sort of cardio like running and the elliptical) Did not measure myself at the end of phase 1, but did lost 1 size pants :^:
During 1st week of phase 2 did not lose any lbs, however my stomach looked much slimmer and I felt much stronger.

I don't have any vacations or small trips planned now until July or August, so I will be focusing on this and hopefully be able to stick to plan 100%

I'm starting week 4 this week. I lost a total of 5 lbs the first two weeks. I haven't seen much change in the scale since but I have lost some inches. 2 inches in my hips, 1 inch in my belly and then 1/2 inches on my arms, legs, neck. I also lost an inch in my bust.

I was so disappointed last week because I felt like it wasn't working, but after measuring myself and seeing I've lost some inches I'm ready to get back on track!

I'm doing the Kickstart Your Metabolism and trying to follow the meal plan as close as I can within my budget. The cardio really kicks my butt, though that may be because I have asthma and haven't needed to use my inhaler in awhile lol. But so far I'm really satisfied with the program and I can't wait to see the end results!:D

I understand about Easter w/e my mother and sister are trying to cook all foods that have butter or sugar and just calories calories calories in them. What I think is so funny is after everybody get full and stuff they will make their Monday committment of starting on their diet Monday I don't know what makes Monday different from any other day but I just listen. I am doing the jmr system from the beginning because of a flop last weekend but for flopping I included ripped in 30 days after jm body revolution making a hour of jillian and it's hard and makes me not want to cheat anymore I know a salad will be included in the big dinner and some baked meat so I will stay within my diet plan but i will remember what jillian said while the butter pound cake is being sliced "what you are doing this for and hold on to it"
pray for me because the food is good

Hi everyone.

From July 2011 until January 2012, I have been on Nutrisystem faithfully and lost over 70 pounds. I credit losing that much weight because of Jillian Michaels. I started off with her 30 Day Shred and got through all 3 levels. I was so proud of myself. Then, I decided to purchase some of her other DVD's and wasn't dissappointed. I also incorporated weight training 3x a week and did JM's 4x week.

The last several months I have been encountering some of the most stressful times of my life. I have also allowed myself to gain 25 pounds, which I'm not happy about, but as of today I am restarting my workouts and eating plan.

I just ordered Body Revolution last week and I am expecting delivery by the end of the week. A couple of questions:

1. What does her food plan look like? How many calories? Can you give me a sample day along with quantities of what you are eating?
2. I keep reading about AM/PM workouts. Is this every day? And how long for each workout? 1/2 hour?
3. Does she rotate cardio days with weight training days?

I'm really looking forward to receiving this program. Thanks in advance :)

asuds
04-09-2012, 12:59 PM
JerseyPAGirl: I am not following the meal plan closely. If you look at the meal plan when you get it the breakdown is roughly 1200-1300 calories daily: 250 for breakfast 400 for lunch and dinner & 150 for your snack. The snack is to be eaten between lunch & dinner. I do more calories for breakfast but less for dinner but still stay at the total for the day. The am/pm workouts are optional. The rotation when you start is workout 1 Monday workout 2 Tuesday cardio on Wednesday then repeat. Each one is 1/2 hour. You can do the cardio everyday if you wanted in addition to the regular workouts. (you have one rest day per week). I hope this helps. I'm sure you will love the workouts. They go by quick and you don't feel like you are doing them alone. (I used to hate working out and with BR now I love it!) :carrot:

JerseyPAGirl
04-09-2012, 01:45 PM
ASUDS: Thanks so much for the quick break down. Much appreciated :)

My concern about Jillian's meal plan is that right now, I currently eat 6 times a day (small meals). Breakfast, mid morning snack, lunch, mid afternoon snack, dinner and evening snack. It keeps me from being hungry as well. I consume 1400-1500 calories daily. I averaged a total of 12 pounds loss per month; doing Jillian's other DVD's 4x week and weight training 3x week. I really enjoy Jillians DVD's because they challenge you. I feel if you are going to work out, you need to continually challenge the body for continued weight loss and muscle growth.

Thanks again :)

JerseyPAgirl: I guess you will have to play with your diet and see what works best for you. Mine is difficult because I have a teenage soon that plays football and he needs to gain. So he just wants to consume pastas, breads and of course I have to force the veggies on him. Lol

Hi guys! I'm just finishing up my first week on Body Revolution (I actually decided to do a blog about it http://mybodyrev.wordpress.com/). I'm really liking it. Hopefully the scale shows my work tomorrow!

And two weeks is the perfect length of time to be doing the same workouts I think. I love that she ups the anti so often.

Out of curiosity, what kind of numbers did people see the first week?

Thought I'd chime in here. I was intending to start with the group in March, but life got crazy. I finally started in the middle of last week, but this is my official week one. I seem to have a good morning routine that will help me stick to the program!

It turns out that I'm not following her meal plan completely, but I am trying to stick close to it. I have been modifying some of the recipes to my tastes and am looking forward to trying more!

I was proud of myself when I did cardio two days ago and was about to do all three running mans for the entire time! My arms weren't swinging as big, but I was able to keep my legs moving.

Hey there! I posted a new thread before realizing this was one. So sorry in advance if you read that bit!

Anyway, has anyone done this without use of any equipment? I think there are weights and a stretch band involved? I got the set gifted to me without any equipment and I'm not really sure if I should bother doing it?

I have weights at my gym, and 1 ten pound weight at my house (lol, I dunno why or how it got here) There's hardly anyone at my gym, should I just go there and use the weights? I could bring my laptop and all that.

But I'd much rather avoid that awkward situation, so do you think this would be beneficial if I follow everything to a tee except for the weights, or should I repeat some things? Thanks!

:wave: hi everyone!

i just finished day 1 of phase 1 and i feel amazing! don't get me wrong she kicked my butt and i felt like i wasn't ready for most exercises, but i feel like the format and the program is something i can finish.

i did well on my eating today but dont plan to follow her program. i may use some of her recipes here and there though.

Hey guys! I'm a bit late to the party.. didn't realise she even had this out till she mentioned it on her podcast last week.. but I just finished Day 2 today and I'm so happy that at least Workout 1 and Workout 2 are apartment friendly.. (I live in a second floor apartment.. so neighbors got pissed when I tried to do p90x and insanity). It's been fun so far and I hope I get in as far as some of you guys already did! :D

My arms however remain the same :( I'm happy with results so far, I love that I can see improvement in getting through the workouts too. I would love to get some updates from everyone, need all the motivation I can get! Good Luck everyone, we CAN do this!

So I started phase 1 today. It wasn't bad at all. I did sweat a lot. Looking forward to work out 2 tomorrow.
I will be weighing in once a week and I probably will take measurements so I will have another factor to go on besides weight. Hope everyone is still hanging in there.

Workout 3 today for the first time, wow, hard, but great! Kind of surprised I'm not very sore! I had a heck of a time with a few of the moves. I'm terrible at regular planks, never mind all these fancy ones, lol. Bring on workout 4 tomorrow, I'm really curious what that one will be like.

Finished workout 2 today. Still not bad. My chest was a bit sore from yesterday's workout. I really like how she starts with te fundamentals to allow your body to get used to the moves. I think on wednesday and thursday, i will do the intermediate version of the moves. Looking forward to cardio.

I was on week 8 and on workouts 7 & 8 then had to go out of town for several days. I'm just now back on track and feeling a bit lost. I'm guessing I will start back with 7&8. Not really sure where to start but I just know I need to start back. Is anyone not doing cardio every day? I wasn't doing it every day just when we rotate it with the workouts. Like day 1 workout 7 day 2 w.o. 8 day 3 cardio. Now I'm thinking maybe I need to do cardio in the mornings and my reg workouts in the evening. Suggestions?

I've seen a lot of changes as far as inches but not pounds. I would like to see more results in my abdominal area. Most everywhere else is getting pretty toned so I was thinking that more cardio would help achieve those results. I'm between 170-172. I've lost 14 inches but only 6 pounds in a little over 2 months.

I asked around and someone I know has this program and said she would lend it to me so I'm going to see if it's a program for me or not :) I always loved Jillian. I currently weigh 175 and would love to lose a lot of weight for this summer and it's FAST approaching. I'd like to get started ASAP.
