Jillian Michaels Week #8 and RnR Training Interrupted

on July 20, 2012

It’s been another busy week at RFYHP.  My oldest is away at boy scout camp and my girlie-girl is at day camp.  So its been me and Mr. Cutsie-Face.  I also had to have 2 teeth pulled this week.  (was supposed to be one or two Wisdom teeth but it didn’t work out that way and ended being a little more involved)  I am fine but it did effect this weeks workout schedule.  Due to that I have had a NO RUNNING week so far.  I hope maybe to get one in on Saturday.  Also been having car issues, but that could be a whole nother post so I am not going to go there.  I am going with the following mantra:

JM update

On a bright note I was able to do all 4 days of workouts. On the other hand, no cardio.  Even the cardio mixed into the workouts caused throbbing where my gums are healing, not pleasant.  So I did not do the cardio DVD and took it easy during the cardio intervals on the other workouts. Therefore I think I am going to repeat this week which will make it Jillian Michaels 97 day Body Revolution for me.  That’s ok.  I really want to do them to the best of my ability, not just skirt along.  I think Jillian would agree insist.

I am down 2 pounds but I am sure a lot of that has to do with living on protein shakes, yogurt and refried beans for a few days.  NO not mixed together!!  Ewww 😉


Unfortunately this ended up as a no run week for me.  As much as I didn’t want to take a whole week off I knew it would be better in the long run.  I still have over a month to prepare for my next half marathon and I would rather take the time off now or possibly be forced into it later and for longer.  Infections and dry sockets are not in my plans, no thank you.

In the meantime I have been entertaining myself reading Jillian Michaels Master your Metabolism and The Flat Belly Diet Family Cookbook , these are links to amazon, but I got them both on Ebay for cheap ;).  Still trying different healthy food options, learning about MUFA’s and loving the Fooducate  app on my phone.  You can click on any of those links to find out more for yourself.

So onward and upward, or repeat (JM week #8) and get moving (running) is on the schedule for next week.
