So if you’re new around these parts, let me bring you up to speed. I’m a huge Jillian Michaels fan, I love fitness, I love eating healthy, and my family and friends are the most important things in my life.
If I could have one wish, it would probably to have a job like her. She has inspired so many people to get healthy. When my sister first stared losing weight about 5 years ago, she bought a Jillian Michaels book and listened to her on the radio. I really didn’t think much of it. I actually had to ask, Who’s Jillian Michaels? I know, I can’t believe it. But then I grew up, got into healthy living and fitness, and knew exactly who Jillian Michael was.
As I mentioned the other day, I am training a couple of my friends and my sister to help them get healthy and in shape. I wasn’t sure how it was going to go at first, but I love it!
The workouts look a bit like this:
- Speed work on the track
- Weight lifting
- Circuit training
- At least one rest day
And the nutrition aspect:
- Protein, protein, protein!
- Don’t eat low-fat or non-fat foods
- Go for whole foods as much as possible
- Whole grains
- Always eat breakfast
It’s a pretty basic nutrition plan but basic is sometimes best. Over this past year and a half in recovery, I have learned so much about health. I used to think I ate healthy during my ED but the truth is, I wasn’t. Now I know how healthy fats, proteins, and carbs are for your body! It’s been fun sharing that with people and breaking down the myth that fat is bad for you.
It’s only just begun but I have really been enjoying helping my friends! It makes me think that maybe I want to do this as a career one day…
Are you a Jillian Michaels fan?
Any tips for training my friends?
