Spending time with my new BFF, Jillian Michaels

Ahh the middle of the work week we meet again.
Except today is technically my Friday because I am off to Maryland tomorrow for some Fitbloggin' action!

If you have been reading this blog for awhile you may have noticed I have a slight issue with becoming consumed/focused/obsessed with one thing for an extended period of time.
For example:
TV Marathons on Netflix/my iPad
Fitness Classes
 Book series

My newest obsession: Jillian Michaels podcasts. I have heard about these for awhile in the HLB world but never really understood the obsession behind hers or any podcast. Listening to someone talk for almost an hour? BORING.

However, I am a big JM fan [cannot wait for her return to Biggest Loser in January] so I downloaded a few episodes of "The Jillian Michaels Show"

I was instantly hooked. She is funny and informative, with a side of sass....kind of reminds me of myself.
[whoops sorry for the horn toot sound you just heard] I have spent this entire week talking about her and the things I have already learned, wishing I found these sooner. 
She always has tips/tricks for ways to improve all aspects of your life and this morning was about energy boosts. I compiled a few of those tidbits to share with you

Some of these may seem like common sense and some may be new to you. The one that stood out the most to me was avoiding negative conversations.
Spending X amount of time discussing all the stresses of life is mentally exhausting. I have experienced this myself both on and off of this blog over the past 2 weeks. I did not realize how much this was affecting my life until this morning. So, with that said...NO MORE NEGATIVE TALK HERE!

If you are interested in listening to the Jillian Michaels show, they are offered for free via iTunes.

Happy hump day :)

Great post! I have been hearing a lot about JM lately, too. I will have to check these out. Also - I couldn't agree more about the negative convesation thing - I truly try to avoid those at ALL costs because it really just puts a damper on your day. Power of positivity, baby!

I have yet to make the jump from music to podcasts. I'm glad JM is coming back to TBL. I missed her!

Katie @wishandwhimsy said...

I agree...I LOVE Jillian Michael's podcasts. She gives tough love.

Jenna said...

I love Jillian!! I didn't kno she podcasted! I'll have to check that out! have a great day! Spalove!

Patty said...

I think you mentioned the podcasts in another post so I went looking for them. I think I listened to this very one this morning on my way into the city. I heart Jillian and all her workouts.

Looking forward to meeting you tomorrow! :)

I can't get into her, as a mom when she said she would never "ruin" her body by having a child, I lost all respect for her as a trainer. I've heard though now that she is a parent she is regretting a lot of her off handed pre-child comments. Maybe I should give her another try to see if she has changed?

Great Tips! I love the drink a cold glass of water!

Sometimes it's hard to ignore the negativity both in our minds and in conversations but life is so much more peaceful without it! ::hugs::

Carlyn Giuriceo said...

I usually listen to her while I am on the train, but I have heard many people listen to her while running/walking or in the car. Not sure if I could do that but I am willing to try! And me too about TBL I stopped watching when she disrespect to Bob but I love JM

Carlyn Giuriceo said...

I think that is why I love her the most...I personally respond best to tough love ESP from JM

Carlyn Giuriceo said...

Definitely check her out if you love her you will LOVE LOVE LOVE these!! xo

Carlyn Giuriceo said...

We're twins! That's exactly when/how I listened to this one :) CANNOT WAIT FOR TOMORROW!

Carlyn Giuriceo said...

She has totally changed her tone since becoming a parent, she isn't soft but she isn't as regimented in her ways. She admits to her faults almost all of the time and eats her words.. I say give her another try and see :)

Kristin @ My Mission Impossible said...

Ooohhh, thanks for telling us...I love her and I'm pretty sure she loves me too! Have fun Fitbloggin...wish I was going!

Krissy said...

Oooh! I hadn't heard of her podcasts. I'm off to check them out now.

Gina @ noshing on asphalt said...

Love those tips! I would have never thought about power napping. Have fun this weekend!

Kelly @ Laughter, Strength, and Food said...

Those five tips are so basic but SO important to do! I believe that all of them can have a positive effect on anyone! :)

Kammie @ Sensual Appeal said...

Ohhh very cool; I'm gonna check her podcast out. I'm not usually a talk show fan either but maybe I'll like hers! All for motivation :)

Suz and Allan said...

I love Jillian as well but I have never listened to her podcasts. I'll have to check that out!
