Wow, it's been a really long time since I've posted a blog! I've been off and on the fitness wagon but, for the past 2 weeks, I've been very on. If I had remained focused since I started in March, I can only imagine where I'd be on my journey.
The reason for my renewed motivation is that I have a vacation in November! The boyf and I are headed on our first cruise and I want to look as good as possible. I intend to wear a bathing suit, preferably a two-piece. Our trip is a little less than 90 days away and I know if I push, I can achieve my goals.
Since 2-3lbs/week is a healthy weight loss goal, I'm shooting to be down about 24-36lbs. Preferably 36
. Turbo Fire is the way I'm going to get there. I'm on Day 13 of the 20 week rotation and I'll have completed 3 months by the time we leave for the cruise. I've noticed from my SP and YT stalking, er, research that people have mentioned losing more inches than actual poundage on TF. I balked a bit at that but considering the fact that I want to LOOK good, what the scale says isn't really my main focus.
I haven't missed a workout yet but I have to say that my body is really sore. I did my first workout with the resistance bands on Thursday night and my arms and shoulders are still sore. I've been pushing through the cardio workouts and sweating like crazy.
I'm a Turbo Jam girl originally and, while TJ isn't easy, Turbo Fire is INSANE. I love me some Chalene Johnson, though. Her energy is insane and I find myself more motivated than I ever imagined. As long as I keep pressing play, I'll be great.
