Labor Day Challenge - Week 2 - Tuesday

I did these 2 as a pair, with 45 seconds of rest at the end of the pair:
barbell squat 5x5x80
dumbbell hammer curl 5x5x20
I did these 2 as a pair, with 30 seconds of rest at the end of the pair:
dumbbell step up 3x8x15
SHELC 3x12xbodyweight

I also did Turbo Jam Fat Blaster, which is intervals. Not HIIT, but intervals. It's four Turbos, done twice each - once at a slow pace and once all out effort. In 30 minutes, I burned 209 calories. I've only done Fat Blaster once or twice before, and it was a while ago, so I don't have all the moves down.

I just learned that Jillian Michaels' radio show/podcast is on hiatus. Grrr!!

6:50 AM - apple & cottage cheese

11:20 AM - turkey bacon, scrambled eggs w/ tomato, onion, green pepper, light cream cheese & salsa

12:10 PM - frozen banana; I just finished off my son's bowl.

2:00 PM - tilapia, tomatoes & avocado hummus on romaine lettuce wrap

4:40 PM - cucumber, baby carrots, green peppers & avocado hummus

6:40 PM - chicken w/ salsa & light cream cheese, mixed vegetables

Three cups of coffee and 120 ounces of water today.

Oh BUMMER!!! I was just trying to download Jillian's last podcast and couldn't figure out why it wasn't on there. Do you know why it's on hiatus? I'm going to have major withdrawals!

I'm not really sure. There's a lot of speculation on one of the Jillian boards I belong to on SparkPeople, about Biggest Loser, about Jillian's sponsors or someone she had to promote and wasn't comfortable with. I hope it's just a case of her needing a short break. I didn't agree with everything she said, but she definitely knows her stuff and her style was very refreshing in this "do light weight, higher reps to tone up" world.

Man that really sucks...I need to check out the Sparkpeople board. Do you mind passing along the link? I always wondered if she'd get in trouble for saying something about a product or not endorsing something TBL does, etc. I LOVE Jillian specifically for her honesty, ballsiness (sp?) and humor. I think we need more people like her in the world!

www.sparkpeople.com - my username there is Jolinar. I love SP. They have so much information and a good community.

I wondered about that, too. Every time she dissed a product on her radio show, I would wonder if there was backlash from Biggest Loser sponsors.

I think I found the thread - I am so bummed!! I saw that someone posted that a guy during JM's time slot said she was no longer on radio because there was too much on her plate. I doubt that's the whole story...what a bummer!!

On a more positive note, I love your page! You should be so proud of yourself!!
