Jillian Michaels Body Revolution: WEEK 11! Results and Review

Took this myself yesterday with my phone.
Wanted to show my mid-section where I notice the difference the most.
This isn't the best picture, but it was the best I could do for now. I promise to have before and after Body Revolution pictures in my final results post, but I've gotten a lot of requests for progress pictures.


I have two words for Week 11 of Jillian Michaels Body Revolution: Say. What?

Just to give you an idea, some of the moves in Workouts 11 and 12:
Weighted burpees
Single-leg weighted jump squats
Wheel push ups (back bend push ups)

Crazy, right? Funny thing though, I can do them all. Who knew? To be fair, I was in pretty good shape when I started this program, but I'm still impressed with myself! I feel strong.

Then of course there's Cardio 3. This was my third week of it and I still had to take short breathers throughout. Jillian's pretty fond of the plyo for this one. It rolls right through jump squats, rock star jumps, jumping lunges, canon ball jumps...you get the idea. It's a calorie burner!
Not. Bad.
My one recommendation for people at a more beginner fitness level starting this set would be to stay longer at each workout level as needed. If you're still struggling with a workout, stay with it another week or so before moving on. Better to make this program a little longer than get discouraged with the tougher moves and quit. Listen to your body. Then when you get to this crazy last set of workouts, you'll be impressed with yourself too!

Ok, on to the numbers... 

My beginning stats were:
Weight 174
Waist 30.5

Right Thigh 19.75
Right Calf 13.75
Right Arm 11.75
Bust 39
Hips 40.75

Last week's stats:
Weight 160.5
Waist 28.75
Right Thigh 19
Right Calf 13
Right Arm 11.5
Bust 37.75
Hips 39

Week 11:
Weight 159.5
Waist 28.75
Right Thigh 19
Right Calf 12.75
Right Arm 11.5
Bust 37.5
Hips 38.75

My body seems to be fighting me a little this last stretch of Body Revolution. After month 1, I was sort of hoping for an even 20 pounds lost. But wherever I wind up is awesome. My results have already exceeded my expectations. I just broke into the 150's! Whoa.


Last week starts today!! 

I've had several people ask me what I'll be reviewing next. Honestly, I'm not sure. I have a few things in mind, but we'll see...
