Turbo Fire--Month 5

I have finished the 20 week Turbo Fire schedule.

I really enjoyed this last month because of all the long cardio and HIIT workouts.

Overall, I loved the program and would recommend it to anyone who likes cardio and good music. Since doing Turbo Jam and Turbo Fire, my oblique muscles have never looked better. I have definitely gone down in my body fat percentage during this 20 weeks and I have lost around 10 pounds. Even better than all that, I went for my annual doctor's visit and my blood pressure is normal, all my blood work is normal, and I feel great :)

I guess all this working out 6 days a week really makes a difference. I am hoping in the next 20 weeks I see even better results :) I will continue with the program as written as well as adding some additional works on occasion(ie--when I have the energy).

Turbo Fire--Month 4

I have finished 16 weeks of Turbo Fire and I am getting ready to start the final month. I have noticed more progress in the last month than any other month so far. My obliques are in the best shape ever and I have dropped 5 pounds over the last month which I attribute to this workout as well as getting stricter with my eating.

I am very happy that I purchased the advanced workouts(I bought just the DVDs as I do not take supplements and I already have a bunch of resistance bands). I like the longer cardio workouts and I think the toning workouts are a little better than the ones that come with the main program although I still think P90X is better for weight work.

I really look forward to my workout time every day and that is saying something because even though I workout 6 days a week I don't always feel energized to do it.

February Challenges

In February I will:

1. Finish a book.
**Nope but in my defense I am reading a book that is progressing very slowly and not keeping my attention--I'm about halfway.

2. Finish Diva's socks.
**I finished one--one to go :)

3. Finish at least two pages of The Bramble and the Rose.
**I did not get any stitching done this month.

4. Lose 5 pounds.
**I lost 3 and I am happy with that :)
