Don't I wish!
Alright, enough kidding around, here are the real results:
Changes? Ummm.... perhaps, but let's put it into context. Since starting this challenge last week I have:
- Completed level one 2x
- Completed level two 2x
- Ran 17 miles
- Completed Yoga Meltdown 2x
- Done spinning for 40 minutes
- Eaten healthy food 80% of the time
The reason that I mention this is that I think parts of the fitness industry like us to believe its easy to get 6 pack abs/slimmer thighs/a firmer butt and that one DVD or piece of equipment is all you need to get the body you have always wanted. What I feel that these claims fail to acknowledge is that you need to work and work HARD! You need to push your limits, sweat your ass off and feel uncomfortable, to say the least. And, in addition to all that, you need to eat wholesome and healthy food. No matter how motivating Jillian is during this 30 minute butt-kick the reality is that you aren't going to get flat abs if you eat half a dozen cheeseburgers every day.
Alright, I'll get off my soap box now (I think I am starting to sound a little like Ms. Michaels don't you??) although I could definitely go on about this. Instead I will once again welcome you to join me in the challenge. Hell, invite your friends too. Better yet, tell them its a 6 Pack Challenge and don't bother to tell them it has nothing to do with beer until they've already committed!!
So tell me, how do you feel about "Get Slim Quick" claims? Let's have a discussion...
Update: Cynthia just joined the challenge. Will you?
