SHARE Sue's Morning Stretch: Jillian Michaels ups the workout for Curves

She told “You & Me This Morning” that she’s developed a 30-minute workout for Curves that ramps up the metabolism. According to Michaels, that’s done because now at was the recovery stations she has participants doing exercises that vary from lunges and squats to jumping jacks and butt kicks. The workout includes modifications “so you can get fit at any fitness level.” The internationally known trainer told “You&Me” that anyone embarking on a “weight loss and wellness journey” in 2014 will discover “skinny jeans are worth it.” Go here for locations.

What is it about exercise that sends me straight to chocolate? Also on the morning TV talk shows:

NBC’s Jeff Rossen (The Rossen Report) took to a New Jersey mall to do a taste test between expensive and cheap chocolates. A lot of the time the blindfolded people chose the cheaper as tasting better, but what everyone said when they chose their preferences was that they liked that one for its creaminess. When he blindfolded the “Today” team, they all chose the more expensive chocolate, which Rossen said proves they all are “chocolate snobs.”

Speaking of chocolate, “Good Morning America” debuted what is new spreadable Hershey’s chocolate. Uh-oh, there goes those New Year’s resolutions.
