as much as i try to get to the gym, these two little ones make my goal of getting there a little harder. so as a start today rookie i needed a guru and who better than a fellow mom and a fellow jenna, wolf, that is. last january she helped self-proclaimed jim hater and carb lover jeff rossen drop 15 pounds, with some sweat and four guidelines. drink 20 sips of water in the morning, start a food diery. walk 10,000 steps a day and cut simple carbs after 6:00 p.m. tips that are now in jenna's new book, "t wnner in 30" inspired by her own quest to lose weight after becoming a mom. >> i looked in the mirror and it was an unrecognizable person. i was always of the mindset, i'll lose all the weight in one day and get right back in shape one day and now for the first time it wasn't going to happen in one day, it was going to take time. >> after the second baby i have
scary and i feel like a lot of moms probably feel that way. a lot of people probably feel that way >> it's terrifying. it's absolutely terrifying. we fail to remember that we didn't gain all this weight in a day. we can't lose all the weight in a day >> so she came up with the book "30 day plan," one simple change each day which i got a sample of. ow yourself. it's possible to move when you don't have time to go to the gym, whatever it is, can you do it on an airplane. >> even in an elevator. >> hopefully nobody enters. >> we eat fast. we move foot of. i want you to spend this month chewing each bite of food 20 times. now your appetite is catching up to where your brain is and you're realizing you're full cause you'll save calories per meal. >> if i thought jenna wolfe will let me escape with some food-chewing dips i was sorely mistaken. here's the deal. those are the first couple of tips.
three ti es a week. >> one of my excuses, and i've told you this. ima don't have thehtime. i'm overwhelmed. i'm going back to work. i have these two kids. what do i do. give 20 minutes, even when your baby is taking a nap. a nap. >> hold that stomach nice and tight. gage your core. >> this doesn't look hard but it is. >> squeeze your gluts ever time up. feels better than it looks. >> looks had a little strange. >> nine, niee. >> why do you say nine twice? >> right where momma made me. >> this is the jenna before and after. >> got to find a way to do as much as can you with the life that you currently have, and if it means working out on the go or while you're warming a baby bottle up or doing laundry, whatever it is. if you can do three minutes at a time a couple times a day, still 1,000 times better than doing nothing. >> i love the slow-mo workout shoots. jenna squeeze your glutes many
>> and to our other 30. >> this jenna needs to squeeze her abs hager. >> it's a great tip for ev - erybody. >> both of you, me, too, all had babies and then you find yourself trying to get back into shape. what was the hardest for you, jenna, because we all thought you came back and looked like you always do in. >> no heard. it's discipline. combining the way you eat and move. it's not one or the other. it's one and the other. >> someone says it takes nine months to put it on.etakes nine months to take it off. >> pommy is four months. trying to figure out how to be a mom which jenna gave me advice on, how to be a mom for two and still take care of myself and that's okay. she says you've got to put yourself first and that's a hard thing to do. >> recently found out that some people have three babies which i can't even imagine. two is driving us up the wall, but you have to work with what you have. >> got three takeaways. >> that's what you need to work with.
good takeaways of number one is reward yourself. a great way to do things. make a deal with yourself. if i skip dessert three times this week or if i get to the gym four times this week or if i do 100 push-ups in a day i'll get a noupn-food-based reward, a ma sam, ipod that i wanted to buy, something i don't really afford. studies show if you make a deal burst, if you reward yourself with things, you're more anti-to go out and do it and work out and do the things you wanted to do. >> do you have another one? >> yes, t second tip. super strict planning. open up the phone, meeting, take the kids to school, conference calls. put workout in there. want to hang out at 3:00, have something at 3:00. that's when you'll work out. stick to it and you'll do ac. >> lastly? >> anything is better than thing. five minutes over the course of a couple of times a day like we talked about in the piece. if you don't have 60 minutes a day, better than nothing and when you get to the day when you dote have a full 60 minutes you're not having to start from scratch. do these three things a lot with
i promise you you'll get healthy. >> a bagel for breakfast, day's over. i'll just start january 1st. >> and i would reward myself with a big thing of ice cream. not the thing. >> non-food-based. jenna bush hager. >> jenna wolf, author of "thinner 30" and get more advice on today.com and tomorrow ways to tackle revamping your mind d coming up, hoda, and her new labor of love. might inspire you to make a change. and kirstie alley here with a beautiful new figure to show

like they did that and they say they couldn't imagine what their life was like before that. >> this whole notion of being a father was something that i had considered but i had considered it in a negative sense, that it was just something i wasn't going to do because t didn't think i was suited for it, and so for me to be able to look over the fence at a pla - ceike haiti and consider this idea of becoming a father at 51 was a radical departure from what i efought was my normal or what i wanted. i remember walk into my very first orphanage. when i was in the midst of that orphanage and then even walking away from that orphanage there was this -- this -- this voice, is thing saying do something. now, at the time i wasn't exactly sure what the something was, but the obvious do something was to adopt one or two or in our case three of

the attention of film-makers laura ricciardi and moira demos. >> really throughout the entire series it was a question of how is the american criminal justice system functioning? is it delivering on its promises of truth and justice, and we thought steven avery would be an amazing window through which to look at the system. >> the documentary casts doubt on some of the evidence accused to convict avery in his murder trial, including the confession by averies's 16-year-old inch u, co-defendant boyfriend ann dassey. >> who shot her in the head? >> he did. >> why didn't you tell us that? >> because i couldn't think of it. >> some recompense. >> one of avery's attorneys at his murder trial tried to show that avery was framed by local law enforcement. >> the system that allowed his conviction on this evidence was a system that did not do honor
beyond a reasonable doubt. >> it ended in the hands. >> the prosecutor in the case says the series left out significant evidence against avery that was included in the trial, saying in part that any claim avery was framed, quote, is irresponsible and inconsistent with a consideration of all the evidence presented. the film-makers support any steps to bring justice and closure, particularly for the woman who was murdered. >> our goal going in was always to start a dialogue, and i'm suowre -- you know, a piece of that dialogue is people's desire to have, you know, more information about what happened to teresa h ha lback, and if somebody find more information, i think that's a good thing. i think that's what she deserves. >> laura ricciardi and moira demos produced and wrote and directed "making a murderer" and have news to share about the case. thanks for joining us. in hour last hour you were speaking about a juror in the case where steven avery was convicted of murder and that
what can you tell us about that. >> sure. the juror contacted us directly and told us that the verdicts in steven's trial were a compromise. that was the actual word that the jury used and went on to describe the jurors ultimately trading votes in the jury room and explicitly discussing if you vote guilt on this count, i will vote not guilty on this count, so that was a significant reve tion. >> that's a very serious charge, obviously, moira, one that could turn the case on its head. have you been able to independently verify that say with another juror? >> we've not spoken to other jurors. this juror reached out directly to us. they told us really that they were afraid that if they held out for a mistrial that it would be easy to identify which juror had done that, and they were fearful for thepr own safety, and what they explained to us was they believed that if there was a split verdict like this,
to the appellate courts, and they thought that steven would get a new trial. that was sort their plan. >> oh. >> but obviously it didn't work out that way. >> laura, willie and i were talking over the holidays. suddenly you go on social media and everyone from celebrities to your neighbors are tweeting and on facebook talking about this. did you ever anticipate that this would turn into this phenomenon as it is now? >> no. i mean, we never could have anticipated or even dreamed of the type of response there's been to thi series. we're really thrilled about it and appreciative of everyone tuning in, you know, and taking to social media to discuss it. i mean, we're really excited about the public discourse that it's generated. >> there are petitions now, in icluding one on whitehouse.gov getting tens of thousands of people signing up. do you thi anything will change in this case based on what you all have produced? >> i mean, i think because t ere is a dialogue now and more
somebody who has information might feel safer could come forward at this point. i think it will depend on new evidence being brought to light. >> just lastly what, is it about these true crimes from "serial to "discovery i.d. what do you think hit had a nerve with people? >> i think people are interesteded in whether our public institutions are functioning properly and to the extent they are fwhoot can be done about it. >> it's fascinating. we watch c it, and it is compelling, and the debate wol continue, but we'll see what happens more show in the legal system now when you have the big news. thank you both for joining us.
