Turbo I come

Today it is folks. Yep, starting a new workout program and committing to it for TWENTY WEEKS. Yes, you read right. The big 2-0 weeks...approximately half of a year. Seems intense right? Seems crazy, huh? Well, I am ready to go back to pre-wedding Brittany and get in great shape again and ultimately just feel better! And this is my solution, work out DVDs from Chalene Johnson and, which is where I purchased my first set of Turbo Jam DVDs to work out to back in 2007 when I was traveling 4 days a week for work. I needed something that I could fit in my bag, do in my hotel room in the morning, and feel great. Well, I was so happy with Turbo Jam that after I joined 24 hour fitness and discovered their Turbo Kick classes on Monday and Wednesday nights, I was hooked. I went regularly with Lauren and they kept me in shape post Bridal bootcamp and pre-wedding.

So here we are again, 6 months + after the wedding and I'm ready to get in gear again. I need a schedule---I'm the type of person that strives for planning and scheduling (if you cannot tell)...hence why I just set up Jimmy and I on google calendar and synced them to our blackberries so now he always knows what is going on :) Anyways, back to the point. If something isn't written in my calendar or I don't have it as a "goal" in my mind and written down, to be honest, it's probably not going to happen, as there is already enough stuff going on in life. The reason bridal bootcamp worked? I paid for it and the trainer held me accountable to come- I didn't want to waste my $$. The reason Turbo Kick classes worked? I had Lauren to go with me, a great work out partner. The reason Turbo Fire will work? I am going to schedule it in my calendar and make a weekly countdown to reach my 20 week goal. If I miss a day, that's ok- but back at it immediately, right? Can't make excuses. Especially when I plan to do early morning work outs---because my other option to spend my time is sleeping and since I control that, I will make myself get up and get in some good cardio before work. So here we go..........this morning was a here is to another 120 days of TURBOFIRE (20 weeks * 7 days in a week then subtract 7 days because you get a day off of a week---just to explain the math behind that).

Let's see how this goes :) Wish me luck.

Think I'll ever be able to kick THIS high? WOW!

  1. This just looks extremely awful, ridiculously hard, and very intense. Please film your workout sessions the minute you start doing this program :)
