Hitting Bottom...

Okay, okay...that post title is a wee bit dramatic! But seriously, I had a bad couple of days!

As you all already know, I've been burning out a little with my workout routine. It has been part boredom and part frustration with results. For some reason, I've had no progress for the past 2 weeks! My diet has NOT been perfect, but I don't think that is was bad enough to counter working out hard 6 days a week...ya know?!

So, what did I do? I took a couple of days off. And maybe ordered some take-out Thai food...maybe...

And I thought long and hard about what I want and what I'm willing to do to get there. Am I tired of ending every day in a sweaty mess and having to wash my hair, dry it & straighten it a million times more often than I would if I didn't workout? Yes!!! Am I tired of trying to eat balanced meals when I could be happy living off cereal and chocolate? Yes!!! But will I get what I'm looking for if I don't do those things? NO!!

There you have it.

My solution: I am going to give in and order TurboFire earlier than I had planned. I wasn't going to start TurboFire until I got back from Egypt, but with the burnout I'm feeling, I think I need to shake things up! I will probably do a hybrid with Power 90 because I really love the Sculpt workout Tony does. And at least I will have both programs to work with so I won't get bored so fast.

I'm actually really looking forward to my new plan and hopefully it will be just what I need to get back in the game!

Do you get bored with your workouts? What do you do when you start to fall off the wagon?


  1. When I get bored I do what you do: I do something different!

    You are going to LOVE TurboFire -- it is so much fun and you feel so good when its over. Be prepared to sweat a ton!

  2. Girl, that's exactly what I need! I swear, it's getting harder and harder to get the jiggle off this bod of mine :)

  3. I think that it's going to be JUST what you need! Starting something new and exciting always gets me motivated!! I hope to hear you're out of your rut soon!!
