Peer pressure

I’ve fallen to it. No. I have not decided to drink. No. I don’t want to party (although it might yield more friends in the Atlanta area if I did). This peer pressure hasn’t really come to me from peers, but instead from the world.

I bought a Jillian Michaels DVD. 

Now I know that there is a lot of frustration with Jillian floating around, and I don’t watch “The Biggest Loser” so I don’t know what people are talking about.

I’ve seen her on one show once where she went into a majority American Indian town and tried to get the whole community to eat healthier and exercise. The majority of the town was dangerously overweight.

I bought the Jillian Michaels DVD on the same day I ordered my new swim suit. Coincidence? I think not.

Because I have an undetermined time until I go on vacation and actually HAVE to look good (I can’t tell you when I’m going because Sean thinks you’ll rob us), I want to supplement my workout routine with more than cardio.

I’m becoming one of those cardio-queens who never lifts because the classes at my YMCA are wimpy at best and nothing like Body Pump which I so love and left back in TN. I attempt “Body Sculpting” as best I can.

However, what’s is really holding my fitness level back is the way I eat. I just cannot refuse a sweet. I tend to eat too much at dinner. And once I let myself “cheat” with something bad for me, I tend to not be able to stop eating whatever it is.

It’s like if you let a person who’s trying to quit smoking have a puff. They’re inevitably going to want to finish the cigarette.

I need to get my eating together, and then maybe I’ll have abs like my Turbo instructor.

If nothing else, I’ll review the workout, and let you know how it stacks up.


This is what my face looks like right now.
