so yea i watch reality tv…so what.  I love it….the anthropoligst in me wants to pay for the premium 24 access to watch the big brother news feed (i did that the 2nd year they were on)  anyhoo gotta rant on this……

Anybody watch the biggest loser (i refuse to dignify it with a link) and get reminded of the Running Man by Steven King? “the Games Federation, a government-mandated television station that runs violent game shows. In one game, Treadmill to Bucks, a contestant with a heart or respiratory condition runs on a treadmill earning prize money for the duration of their run, often dying in the process.” (from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Running_Man)  huh…sort of sounds like the biggest loser to me, just framed every so slightly differently.   At least on treadmill to bucks the contestants get paid, even if they don’t lose the most weight.  

 what the hell has the world come to….I am just waiting for shows like the running man  to start.  and hell I hate to say it I would watch. i watch solitary for its eerie creepy doing-a-phychological-test-for-50k craziness so i can see its appeal. (and if you havent seen solitary check it out on Fox reality or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solitary_(TV_series  also apparently the network is going of the air in march 2010 so catch it if you can)

 

I hate Jillian Michaels January 22, 2010


Just saying I hate her…..I hope she gets a metabolic disorder and people tell her to stop eating fatty….except she can’t because its genetic even if she eats nothing and works out for 5 hours a day. (like many x-biggest loser contestants, some of whom train for MARATHONS on 1200 calories a day.)   May she blow out a knee and never be able to do another lunge.   I wish her nothing but what she pushes on other people for the sake of ratings and money (never  ever pretend it’s about “compassion”  thats a load of crap.)  May she have heat stroke while running a mile …..in a fat suit.  

IN fact she is bad at selling things too…a new video of hers pushes a kettlebell workout…well i found this article blasting her (and he does it as nice as he can too, they ARE selling kettlebells after all and she is the hottest weight loss trainer since the ab-rower )  http://www.charmcitykettlebells.com/sandys-journal/jillianmichaelsisbadforkettlebells/

“Being a trainer, in no way gives Jillian Michaels the expertise to teach kettlebells. Look I’m not a personal trainer and I don’t try to train folks except in my area of expertise. Jillian says at one point during the QVC piece, “I know you are thinking…you don’t know how to use it (the kettlebell)” Well I can assure you she doesn’t know how to use it either, unfortunately.”

Thats the problem with the EXERSIZE FATTY approach to weight loss… if you aren’t already fit, jumping into 3 hours of cardio a day will KILL you….or at the very least injure you.   All things in moderation people jesus.   And you know what, life it’s too short to do what she does, what she makes people do on tv for money.   Life is here to ENJOY the best  way you can……that includes eating well, dancing through life, and loving the souls around you.  It does NOT include climbing a never-ending ladder till you fall over.   And then have an angry (albiet hot in an overtoned martial arts sort of way)  brunette yelling at you “stupid fatty you are ruining your life, your kids lives and the country!”

(Well THATS been brewing for a while…sorry folks.  Some things just have to be ranted upon…I guess i have been rant-y lately…must be the moon or something)
