Oh yeah, that's right!! It came!!

My TurboFire!! I was kind of in a rut with Power 90 and needed a boost so I gave in and ordered TurboFire a couple of months early. I'm so glad that I did! It is a lot more cardio than I've been doing and unfortunately for me, that is the only thing that is going to blast this bod back into shape!

I decided to buy the standard version. There was no price savings to get the Deluxe box that includes all the Advanced discs rather than ordering those separately later. As you can see, it comes with a DVD set of 12 workouts, a band for resistance training, a measuring tape, the program schedule (you can do 12 weeks or the extended 20 week version), a nutrition guide, program guide & the 5-day Inferno plan.

My first instinct was to do the 5-day Inferno, but now that I'm 2 days in and SO SORE, I don't know! I might need a rest day! Seriously, my shoulders and lats are crazy sore! And it's not like I haven't been working out for the past couple months...that should show you what a serious butt kicking Chalene Johnson delivers your hiney! I am loving it!

If I don't end up doing the 5-Day Inferno, I will probably start the program schedule on Monday with a couple of modifications. First, I think I'm only going to workout 5 days a week, rather than the 6 days in the program. I know my weaknesses and burnout is one. Best to cut back a little and avoid it. I plan to still follow the order of the classes, just with an added rest day. So, it will take me an extra couple of weeks to complete the "12 week" program. I think I'm also going to try to squeeze some of the Power 90 Sculpt 3-4 video in there. There is a lot less resistance training in this program, but I really like how strong I was feeling and don't want to lose that. Maybe on the HIIP (High Intensity Interval Training) days I can add it in since those workouts are only 15 - 25 minutes. We'll see!

I will do a short review of each workout as I get through them so you can see what they are all about!

After my workout (and a much needed shower!) I headed over to Whole Foods to grab some dandelion greens for the bunny...of course I walked out with plenty of other stuff too!

I finally broke down and bought some of this...I hope it's as good as everyone makes it sound!!

I couldn't figure out if I'm supposed to put it in the fridge or not. It said to keep it in a cool dry place...hmmmm.

And I got some of these after The Diva made them look soooo good!

Once I got home, I dove into the cereal. I hadn't eaten since before my workout and I think my body needed some serious carbs!

I did a cereal mix, and idea also stolen from The Diva, that included the Cinnamon Puffins and WF High Fiber Cereal and some sliced banana.

After that, it was off to sleep to let my tired body recover!

I started today off with a little Greenberry Shakeology blended up with a banana. I'm still getting used to this flavor, but it's getting better.

I've got to try the EAS sports drink and let you guys know if it works! Augh! So much to do, so little time.

Food For Thought:

When you are sore from a workout, do you power through another one or let your body rest?

What items can you just not pass up at the grocery store? Mine are bananas!


  1. cant wait to see how you like turbofire! it looks great!

  2. Whoo Hoo!! Enjoy Turbo Fire...that came quick!!

    When I am sore I like to do active is important to keep moving gently, the more you sit still, the stiffer you will get! I have my clients, and myself do light stretching between workouts or gentle yoga, or walking!


    Oh, I buy bananas every time I go to the store, and I am there practically daily haha

  3. Enjoy the TurboFire!!! I also modified it a bit, I didn't really like the sculpting dvds, I'm not a big resistance band lover, so I do my regular strength training 2x per week.


  4. First of all, I can't wait to hear your opinion on TurboFire. I really want that next. Just ordered RevAbs Deluxe and can't wait to work this core!! ;-) additionally- LOVE those Puffins!! YUM>

  5. oh I haven't tried that kind of pb but it does look good!
