I had the same problem when I did that dvd! It was SO random and it only ever happened that one time. Glad you are feeling better!

FLYOVERSTATE- Thanks! Did the workout (level 1) again today and also did 15 minutes on my treadmill, and 15 minutes on my gazelle. I had to take a few breaks in between but the best part is at the end of the workout when Jillian tells you to think about how hard you just worked. Its a good feeling, 28 more days to go!

I actually do the Ripped in 30 on days when going to the gym just doesn't work. It is a very hard work out. I do zumba 2-3 days a week and go to the gym on the other days. I bought this knowing that it would challenge me, but was shocked by how much it makes me work. Very good work out!!! Keep up the good work you will get it licked in no time.

I don't think a boiled egg is a good choice for a pre-workout food. Protein is harder to digest and takes longer. Some of the oxygenated blood that should be fueling your workout is redirected to your stomach.

Perhaps you could try a simple carb, like a piece of fruit -- a banana is my top choice -- 30 to 60 minutes beforehand and save the boiled egg for afterward and see if that works for you. Also make sure you remain hydrated.

Sometimes you just have to play around with it to find what works for you. Some people need to have an empty stomach. I need something or I fizzle out.

But we've all been there. I will never, ever, ever eat cottage cheese before a run. Big mistake.

It was "Jillian Michaels Ripped In 30" i started level 1 today. I dont think it is beyond my fitness level because i did the same video, but level 2 a week ago for a random exercise and i felt fine. It has been an hour in a half since i exercised and i feel better now, im not sure what was wrong..

Are you sure it was the video and not something you ate or a stomach bug?

Which video is it? Is it beyond your fitness level? Was your heart rate excessively high? If you keep your arms out of the workout, it lowers the aerobic level by 12%, maybe that'd help.

Hope you're better. emoticon

So I bought a dvd to workout to, its only a 30 minute exercise so i planned on walking 30 minutes on my treadmill afterwards.
Throughout the dvd i had to take a few breaks and felt like vomiting a couple times (it wasnt a strong urge, just a feeling.) When i finished i had to eat a biscuit because my stomache felt so empty and sick. Why is this? I ate a hard boiled egg before i worked out so im not sure why i felt so sick. Also, i didn't end up walking on my treadmill afterwards because of how I felt. Tomorrow I am going to walk first, then do the video. This is a 30 day program i hope i can stick to it.
