Holy HIIT!

Day 2 - HIIT 15 I came into today a bit intimidated about what would be occurring. I knew it would be a tough one and Chalene did not disappoint. Wow. I got through the first three drills. Completely out of breath and feeling good. That last set was so hard. My legs were shaking, sweat coming down my face like tears, but I pushed through and am so glad I did. I am proud of myself today. I pushed my body to the limit. I completed the workout with the stretch 10. I don't feel like I really put my all into that one though. I was wiped from the HIIT. Tomorrow is a rest day and I almost wish it wasn't. Having so much fun with Turbo Fire. I now realize that getting into shape is no easy feat. You must put in the work. There are no secrets. Eat less, move more. And find a workout you love!! - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

Day 1: fire 30/stretch 10

Ouch! If my body could speak right now it would be saying "what the hell did you just put me through". In a good way of course. My legs already feel like they are asleep as I lay here and write. I used the new to class option which broke down the moves before you got into them. I am glad I did. They made a lot more sense that way and I don't feel like I will need to do it again. I can usually catch on pretty fast. Loved the music and loved the moves. Must say those fire drills are killer. The Sumo Burpies are tough. I personally really loved the air jacks. Made you feel really pumped up. Right now I and wiped. Ready for a good night of sleep and a HIIT 15 tomorrow. I am a little nervous but am confident in myself. Until tomorrow... - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

Ready to Fire it up!

I haven't been on this blog in months.  In fact in the past month and a half I have been busy - spending a little less time on the computer and more time for me.  I have found the workout that I love and have been sticking to a 1400 calorie diet.  I have lost 11 pounds in 6 weeks and am feeling the best I have.  I got hooked on a workout called  Turbo Jam with Chalene Johnson - a Beachbody workout.  I love it because it incorporates two of my favorite workouts...kickboxing and dance!  This is why I am upping my workout to Chalene's workout called Turbo Fire.  It is a 90 day program that I plan to kick ass at...and probably get my ass kicked once in a while... Tomorrow is Day 1 and I will try to give updates as I go.  Tomorrow I take the dreaded "before" pictures and measurements.  Maybe after I get through the workout I will be brave enough to put them up.  For now though, I cannot wait!  Bring on the fire...i am ready for a good workout tomorrow!

I am so very excited, because on Wednesday one of these happy new little iphone 4s' will be mine!  So excited.  I still have the iphone 3Gs so it will be so nice to be able to Facetime with my sisters!!  Oh and that little assistant Siri will be pretty darn awesome too....I feel like I don't spend too much money on myself so this is my splurge that will pay for itself within a week.  :)
