Who's tougher? Tony Horton or Jillian Michaels.. (& before pics)

Thursday, June 24, 2010

Jillian! So I did the 30 DS for 30 days straight.. and today was my first day of Tony Horton's 10 minute trainer. I did 2 workouts to total 20 minutes, the same as Jillians, but I felt like Jillian kicked my ass soooo much more! I still got a good sweat from Tony's.. I did the cardio and lower body. So maybe since I did the lower body, thats not really as much of a hardcore workout. But we'll see!! I think Jillian topped him tho!
So today is the start of the 4th day of me doing the Hilton Head Metabolism Diet, recommended by SparkGirl32 (There is a thread for it on my sparkteams if you want to check it out). The first couple of days I was skeptical.. Ok, granted, I gained water weight over the weekend and was up at 151 Monday morning when I started. 1 lb down Tuesday, 1 lb down yesterday. Back to my weight I was Saturday morning - pre drinking binge. Then today I was down another 1.6... so it might actually be working and I might actually have to stick with it a lil while longer!
I took some before pictures this morning... I don't really want to share them.... I'm quite embarrassed. I know no one will pick on me for them.. but maybe it'll help me 'shame myself' and work harder? I don't knowwww.. Here goes.....

What a gut, huh?! oh, and nice double chin. glad i got that in there too..

My butt has gone bye-bye :( And apparently I had a wedgie. lol

No- I'm not 4 months pregnant. Don't worry...... This is my worst pic to showcase the lovely baby belly that WON'T go away!!

and here's my non-guns and lovely gut again.. :(
*Sigh... ok, glad thats overwith.. I did have some before pictures from like September, but they're on my old computer. Maybe I'll add those sometime whenever I get around to cleaning that computer out.. I just don't think there will be much of a difference.
Official WI tomorrow! Let's do this!

    Oh, p90x I'm sure would kick Jillian's butt. I guess I should say 10 minute trainer vs. 30 DS. those are the two I've comparing!
    Yes, VS Pink undies ladies, stop drooling already... hahaha
    Want some of my boobs? I'll share! They don't go anywhere and I wish they'd tone themselves down 2 cup sizes! haha :)

    Cuuuute undies! ;) VS? Girl you are so amazing for posting these! What a great way to track your progress! I'm jealous that you have boobs lol mine are dissappearing but my belly isn't! SO annoying! I want to read about this diet you're doing; sounds pretty fab! And I can't weigh in on the JM vs TH b/c even though I have p90x I've never tried it, mostly b/c I don't think I can focus on a dvd for that long lol. But I LOVE Jillian! She is fierce.

    EBDARCY, we did p90 for 60 days.. my diet wasn't that great, so I didn't see great results.. but it was hard.. My thing is that I just don't have time (ok. I could have the time, but I REFUSE to get up earlier than 30 minutes before I have to start getting ready for work..) lol. And the p90 videos were 45 mins-60 mins long.. so I'll just do the 20 mins in the morning, and maybe sneak another one in later this evening, if my daughter will allow me to take the tv off cartoons and not give her my undivided attention for a whole 10 minutes ;) Could be tricky! lol
    Thanks Jewelz! I'll keep you posted!! Like I said, I think Jillians was tougher, but I needed a break from doing the same ol' routine, so I'll try Tony for awhile! :)

    I own Tony's 10 and p90. The 10 minute trainer has to be done for 40 minutes to get a legit work out in. The p90? has been kicking my trash for 3 weeks now. His 10 is a smaller watered down version and while something helps it isn't the real deal. I will probably go back on the 10 minute trainer when I start teaching school in the fall b/c I don't have time to kill myself with P90.

    ahh yes, i've got lots of stretch marks too.. they used to be dark red.. luckily they've faded, but they make it look like cellulite!! Needless to say, this girl will NEVER be in a bikini again!

    I have the tummy issue too. Damn thing just won't go away....& even if it does I still have gorgeous stretch marks....which look worse AFTER losing 60+ pounds than they did heavier.

    Can I just first say that I love your panties? I know that sounds weird but hey, I do! Secondly, you have a kick ass tan and you're getting so much leaner! Ow ow *cat whistle*
