I just saw this - I would probably do 10 - 12 cards a day especially if I ended up getting those big numbers. Also Jillian has way too much time if she can that in one day! Its too late this week but let me know if you run it again and I will try it.

Jillian Michael's Deck of Cards Challenge (Adapted for Wii )
This is a great way to work your whole body and all you need is a deck of cards. Each suit is assigned to a specific type of exercise:
Hearts = core Spades = lower body Diamonds = cardio Clubs = upper body
The number on the card is the number of reps you will do X ten. Jacks = 110, Queens = 120, Kings = 130 and Aces = 150 Jokers are wild 150 of whatever you choose. There are many variations. If I get a high card such as a Queen of hearts- I may break up the type of core exercises I do. I may do 20 crunches, 20 hip bridges and so on until I get to 130. 2 of spades would be 20 squats.
For some ideas--You could use the ST portion of Wii Fit for the lower body..lunges, squats, boxing on Wii sports could be upper body- jabs, Or Gold's Gym. Abs...torso Twists, Cardio- any of the cardio exercises or Just Dance, Zumba for Wii)
How many cards will you be able to do this week. Jillian said to do a deck a day? Are you up for it? Keep track of your cards each day and the workout you did with them.
