"Are you really doing it?"
That's the question I've been asked most over the last 12 days in regards to the Jillian Michaels "Ripped in 30" exercise program.
Other questions like, "Are you on the 'roids?", "Have you had work done?" & "Aren't those shorts a little tight?" come in a distant 2nd through 4th.
Some people would say one of the more frustrating things about working out is not being able to see immediate results. I'd certainly agree, but would add a qualifier. One of the more frustrating things about working out is OTHERS not being able to see immediate results.
"Am I really doing it?" Yep.
Can I prove it? Nope.
Quite frankly, after eight work-outs there is almost no tangible proof I've been exercising at all.
I can't show you ripped abs, because my body is still very similar to the one I had two weeks ago. Although, I'm convinced something is definitely happening underneath the surface. I can feel it.
Oh, can I feel it.
I can't show you the cramps I'm experiencing in four muscle groups I didn't know existed.
I can't show you the wounded ego I've received after hearing Jillian chant "C'mon Girls!" as I, once again, laid motionless & cramped in a pool of my own sweat.
I suppose I could bottle & label my sweat for you, but that system has lost all credibility due to the Tour de France.
So, I figure the best "proof" I can offer you is some video footage of me actually working out.
Ladies & Gentlemen, I present to you...
The Push-up Cam! Enjoy.
This brings my extended version of Week #1 to an end. Tomorrow, I'm taking it up a notch as I take on Week #2. You'll just have to take my word for it.
Keep on laughin',
