I am going to get to what my 100 Day Hybrid workout is in a minute, but first, I wanted to touch on something else real quick.
When I posted my vlog last week about losing 142 lbs. in one year, I had no idea that it would get the kind of response it got! Holy Toledo, you all here in Sparkville are AWESOME! I mean, I knew that you were already, but I think you all took it to another level last week! I have been kind of slow getting back to everyone and thanking them for all the wonderful comments, emails, messages, and goodies and I apologize. I really do appreciate every word! I have been reading them all and I will get back to you as soon as I am able to catch up. But thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart! The outpouring of support and love from you all was something else! Thank you!
Like I have said many times, I still have a hard time believing that I can inspire anyone because there was a time in the not to distant past, when I couldn't inspire myself! I will say, that if I ever even inspire 1 person along the way here, that will be a major accomplishment! I am completely humbled when I read comments about being an inspiration. Every single one of us on here has it within themselves to be their change that they need. You have it within YOU to be your change! You can do this! We can do this!
I could go on and on about that all day but I will get back to the subject at hand of this blog, my workout program.
As some of you may know, over a 10+ month period, I finished, Insanity, Tap Out XT, P90x, and Les Mills Combat. None of them were easy as each had it's strengths. For me, Insanity was the best of the four for cardio. Tap Out XT was the best for overall strength. P90x was the best for flexibility and balance. Combat was the best for core & leg strength.
When I finished Les Mills Combat back on May 10th, I really wasn't sure what I was going to do next. Do I repeat one of the programs I already finished? Do I start something new like Asylum, P90x 2, Tap Out XT 2, or Turbo Fire? I was really unsure of where my next challenge was going to come from.
I had an idea. Hey, don't act so shocked...
I thought, how about I combine the hardest and most challenging workouts of the 4 programs I already finished into a hybrid and I can do that! Bingo! CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! I made a full workout calendar and when I was done, it was 100 days of the best and harderst workouts of Insanity, Tap Out XT, P90x, and Combat combined!
Crazy? Perhaps. I don't look at it like that. I look at it as the next evolution of challenging myself. I am always looking for that next challenge. I am always looking for the next way to step up my fitness. Not to mention I want to go ahead and knock of these last 25 lbs and hit my goal that I set back in May of 2012. So the 100 Day Hybrid is what I came up with and is what I am going with.
I kicked off the hybrid on May 12th with some P90x Yoga and here is what the entire 1st week looked like...
A few things with this program. One, I have already lost 6 lbs in the first five days! Two, I love it! Not just for the weight loss but for the mix of workouts. Three, doing the old workouts is actually fun! Some of them I hadn't done since last summer and it is AMAZING when I can do parts of them now that I couldn't do back then! Makes it even more fun for me and makes me want to push even harder!
The general rule for the program is 2 days a week of yoga, 2 days a week of cardio, 1 day a week of arms & core, 1 day a week of legs & core, and 1 day a week with all core.
So that is my 100 Day Hybrid plan! What do you think? I finished Day 8 (Tap Out XT - Yoga XT...Sunday is yoga day) and I am more sure about my decision to try this hybrid than ever. It will be a challenge but I really think that it will give me the results I want when it is over!
Thank you again for all of your support! You all help me push harder and farther every day and I couldn't be more appreciative! You all are the best!
Embrace Your Possibilities
Good Day Sparkville
