I need help with my New Year’s Resolution. Which was to make healthier food choices.
It wasn’t to LOSE WEIGHT,
AND it wasn’t to GET IN SHAPE, although I do admit that I was hoping that those things would happen naturally if I just chose to eat healthier.

I have got to think more of what I put in MY MOUTH!

As a cancer survivor, there are times that I feel so guilty that Heavenly Father has allowed me to live and now I am not taking care of the body that he has blessed me with.


Hey, I know what I NEED!! I need BOB!!!

Not this Bob.


I much prefer Bob to Jillian.

Yes, I know. Jillian is tough. Every muscle in her body is tight, even the muscles that can be found in her EYELIDS!

This is not ugly envy in me surging to the surface, but I don’t even think Jillian is all that pretty. And neither does my husband. GOOD ANSWER HUBBY!

But Bob. He is a kinder, more gentler Bob. He’s serious but he is more softer around the edges than is JILLIAN!!

So….if you got to choose a trainer….who would you choose?

Bob?............or Jillian?

I have seen Bob behind the scene cussing up a storm and yelling like nobody's business... I don't know why they don't show that on TV? Personally myself I would pick Jillian and the only reason why is I can't stand Bob's WHINY voice... Mind you one of the reasons I married my husband is that he did have me at hello (he has a really really deep MANLY melt my heart voice)

I know where you are coming from too... I have really been trying to watch what I put in my mouth...My problem is I am so addicted to chocolate! Ugh!
Best to you,

Oh Robin!! I don't know if I will ever look at Bob the same again!!

Maybe who I need is Jack LaLanne! Yeah, that's about my speed!!

Didn't you guys see ep. 2? They actually showed Bob LOSING IT on Joelle. Even Jillian was like, "I have never seen Bob like that."

At the weigh-in, Jillian was saying that for the first time, she actually likes everyone on her team. Then she said, "Luckily we have Bob around to keep things interesting."

Alison was all, "Bob? What did I miss?"

Bob said, "I was possessed my Jillian Michaels this week." It was hilarious!!

--I think I'd pick Jillian. 'Cuz she's a girl. (Kinda of. More than Bob, at least. Most of the time.)

kitchenditcher said...

Okay, Bob's defense....everyone has a bad day every once in a while don't they?

Gosh, I am not going to be able to sleep tonight.

heather said...

Oh. I was just having this conversation with some friends of mine! I think Jillian is gorgeous!! And I have no idea who I'd pick. ?

Mark and Ashley said...

I would pick Jillian. I need thie rough and tough to keep me going. I guess it comes with playing sports and having coaches. haha

Jillian - Three
Bob - One

I would have to say neither. You just need you and God. Seriously. And all of us of course. WE will cheer you on and not even cuss or anything. Good luck.

It's been so long since I've been on blogs and I'm always uplifted by yours. Thank you for always being so positive, you're a great influence!!! How was your trip?

Scrappy Girl said...

I'd pick Jillian...I need someone who will kick my butt...I am struggling too!

RhondaLue said...

I've never watched but I'll believe you and go with BOB. lol Well actually God was brought into the conversation so God gets my vote first, next after God would be Bob. ;)

Dan and Amanda said...

Jillian -- HANDS DOWN! I think she would make me mad enough to keep me going.

I must say, I am COMPLETELY uneducated on this subject because I don't watch The Biggest Loser (that's the right show, right?) I love the idea of it and have caught it here and there, but have not yet committed to watching it. Maybe I will! Anyway, I feel the pain, Deb. Being pregnant, I always want to watch what I am eating and am ashamed to say there have been too many coke slushies in this pregnancy, lol. Did pretty good with the first one, just trying to do the same with number 2. One thing I do try to do is kinda keep a running track of what I have eaten that day in my mind. It makes me conscious of what I ate, what I need to be eating, and how much I have consumed. Anyway, that is just me, thought I would put in my 2 cents! You are such a beautiful woman- kudos to you for trying to be healthy- you are a good example to me, sincerely!

Hello there,

I hope you don't mind me posting a comment even if we are strangers. I happened to just stop by, by chance and I found your blog very enjoyable.

You need help? If I read correctly, you are a cancer survivor, so you can do anything!

I thought it was funny, the question about jillian. I have never watched the show that she is on, but I did happen to buy her workout DVD'S about two years ago. I found her story very motivating. But I must say I could not walk for three days!!! her work outs are very hard, but once I started seeing results, everything just fell into place.

But my husband saw the video and said "why is that man so angry?"
Then he said "if you ever look like that I will divorce you", he thinks she is ugly.

But it think it's awesome that you have taken an interest in taking care of yourself, God wants you here for a reason! I come from a long line of family members who have lost their cancer battles. Just within 2008 I have lost my mother at the age of 75, my cousin at the age of 18, and another cousin at the age of 27.

For me coming from this not so healthy family tree, it makes it very easy for me to stay healthy. I have two small boys, and I want to be around long enough to see my Grandchildren run through my front door.

I wish you the best through your journey and thank you for sharing...your blog I warm, inviting and brings a smile to my face. Thanks Again!

I think I would have to go with Todd - Bob. My husband goes by his middle name - Todd, but his first name is Robert - Bob. He knows how to motivate me.

I've never seen the biggest loser. Maybe I should!!!

Thank you for commenting on my dad's blog. You are one special lady!

I would have to say Bob. Well, if Bob WAS cussing up a storm, finally, then it is only a fraction compared to Jillian. Yep, I watch the show, faithfully. Bob would actually teach you some life skill how to take care of yourself. Jillian just gets bugged all the time. She could kick my booty that's for sure. I would still choose BOB.

Tink said...

Well, this is how dumb I am...I'm not familiar with Bob OR Jillian. But I do know that I need to be better about my eating habits. I started a blog on healthy eating based off the word of wisdom if you want to check it out. It's called Enjoy and good luck with your resolutions! You'll do great.

What a fun post Deb! Jillian for sure! I want a trainer to kick my butt and tell me to just suck it up! Don't get me wrong... I would take Bob for sure but if I had to pick... I say Jullian!!
