Jam packed today again – yet another day of two shows so had to take care of the 365 early on. Yesterday I didn’t get home until around 2am so it was a good thing I had done the blog and all. That is the last thing I want to do when I come home that late, that’s for sure!
You know what helps you do the 365 fitness, doing it in front of the TV while watching an infomercial about getting fit! And ironically, this morning the infomercial was Jillian Michaels and her new 90 day DVD set 🙂 Normally I get the Insanity infomercials on a Saturday morning – which I have seen so many times!! And yet funnily enough, I seem to watch a lot each time before switching channels…I have to admit I like the before and after pictures…although it makes you wonder with the technology these days, what stops them from having overweight people and simulating what they would look like thinner and toned with Photoshop? Or the other way around – having a super athletic person and then transforming what they would look like if they were fatter and out of shape with a little Photoshop….
Right after I watched way too much of the Jillian Michaels show, guess what was on the next channel…another fitness infomercial, but one I had never seen before…something to do with a Brazilian personal trainer making promises to lift your butt! That’s right…the women testimonials and pictures were all about how this program had changed their butts! NO JOKE! The before and after photos focused on the butts of these women transforming with this fitness and dance regime over a few months…it was hilariously graphic!!! The butts did look better and lifted! That was a new one for me on a Saturday morning 🙂
Interestingly on these photos, just after I had thought about the photoshopping possibility and the authenticity of the before and after shots, this Brazilian butt lift show had photos too and at the bottom it said “these have not been photoshopped” or something like that! And boy did these photos look R.E.A.L!!! The real-ist before and after shots I have ever seen…stretch marks, fat dimples…it was, on one hand a relief that finally a show is baring it all, but on the other hand now seriously made me wonder how much photoshopping is being done on all the other fitness infomercials out there!
I found it, the Brazil Butt Lift brief infomercial on YouTube, but sadly this is like a minute version so the good real before and after footage is not there, but here is a little bit of what was on TV…its like butt porn!!!!!!!! BOOTY PORN!!!
Day 43: February 20th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!
Cardio was = Aerobics Workout
Dance of the Day was = “The Creeps” by Camille Jones
Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Ellie Elephant”
Anything to Note =
Well…I saw that our subletter Madalina had a hand puppet in the form of an Elephant a while back and it crossed my mind that I should use it in one of my video uploads one day. So today, I decided to do just that. Picked it up and started recording…but the grip on it was constantly a problem as I was constantly talking. I had a hard time moving the trunk and mouth as I spoke and I could not reach out and re-adjust since I was filming! So, had to just go with it sadly..so looks a bit sloppy, along with what I was talking about! Veggies apparently! I liked doing this character but wish I had a better sense of what I was going for, but I guess that’s not the point of an improvised video upload! I was going for an educational but fun kids show, but the information and presentation of it was not that wise HAHA!!
My cardio today was especially funny! I decided to do some “homemade aerobics” 🙂 And of course I had to dress the part – I anticipated I would be sweating and boiling in my apartment so put on my sports bra and boy style panties and my trainers and that’s it! Pumped up the dance techno volume and went full out! I must have looked ridiculous – each time I caught myself in the mirror here and there it was quite the sight!
I have never taught aerobics but since I was dressed for the part I jammed it full of high impact moves to the energetic dance beat and just kept chopping and changing like I thought an aerobics instructor would! It definitely did the trick and got my heart racing! The outfit and the music gave me that boost to keep going 🙂
I was still in my outfit dancing to my dance of the day after when Stuart walked in with the groceries…and he double took at me and what I was wearing, and had a big “What the..?” on his face!!
In my head, I looked and felt like this….
But I probably looked more like this HAHA!…
