Week 3 of Turbo Fire... still going strong

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

It’s been a while since my last blog post so here I am. I am going strong with TurboFire since starting three weeks ago. I need to, I have vacation to the Dominican coming up in about 6 1/2 weeks. What motivation I have, not too mention I have my before pictures hanging up on my vanity mirror so I see them everyday.

I have noticed a little difference, not a huge difference but I am only on Day 3 of Week 3. It also doesn’t help that my TOM is approaching and I always gain at least 5lbs of during the week before. Any thoughts how I can keep this down without taking over the counter aids? I keep my sodium intake fairly low and I drink plenty of water through out the day. Last month it was so bad that I had to pull out a pair of my bigger jeans.

Back to my exercise routine... for the past week I have been toying with the idea of including P90X’s weight training videos in the mix. I’d like to try ChaLEAN Extreme, but I already have P90X so why spend the extra money. Unless someone can convince me that ChaLEAN is better for a woman’s body than P90X.

I really do miss the weight training aspect of P90X so I think doing a hybrid routine would be a great fit for me. I’m not looking to really lose weight but instead tighten and tone some of my jigglies. If I lose in the process, great, but weight loss isn’t much of a goal for me since I hit my target this time last year.

Who out there has created their own P90X/TurboFire hybrid routine?

I am thinking 75% TurboFire with 25% P90X and just the weight bearing routines from P90X. Any suggestions would be helpful.

If I come up with a plan of attack for this home grown hybrid routine, I’ll post it here.

    So your trip must be coming up? If this was a few weeks ago? I haven't done P90x- watched it but I like Chalene better but there are hybrids out there. have you looked at wowy? they would have some posted or if you haven't got one I can ask a few friends....this fall I'll probably go back to the CLX/FIRE hybrid...I like using the free weights more than bands so it's a better set up when i can be at home but we'll be traveling all summer. Have a great night!
