Link of the week:

I had no idea that Jillian Michaels had her own weekly podcast! Thanks to Becky for the link!
Anyway, I know with JM you either love her or hate her, but I love her. Yes, yes, she absolutely MURDERED proper form on a couple of her "Trainer's Tips" but still, you can't deny her passion for fitness and health. And the fact that it's always a black team member who wins... come on, you can't argue with that.

Anyway, here's a link to JM's radio show/ podcast that she does every Sunday.

The page is NOT well laid out, neither is finding the darn podcasts but they're worth it.
Here is the link for just the podcasts for the radio station:
Then just look down SUNDAYS to find JM!

Not only is she absolutely passionate about the topics, gives good advice (and supports it with info), but she's also pretty funny! Most of the time she's pretty serious and stern with her advice, so it's like she's givin you an ass kickin through your speakers!! :) Her no-nonsense/ excuses attitude is really cool. As as her tips on nutrition, eating organic, avoiding the vast amount of toxins in our food and common household goods.
Check them out and let me know what you think!!

Looks like you had a busy week! The new book Jillian has out is awesome. I don't own it but I flipped through it at a bookstore and she goes over food toxicity and many "diet" books don't cover that suject and it's REALLY important!

Oh goodness, it's a good thing you posted about Jillian because I forgot all about this week's podcast! Thanks!
