I am starting my first day tomorrow. Not sure why I have not done it sooner. Actually, I do know. I am afraid of doing it and not having any success..which is totally silly. I am planning on doing it and clean eating. I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed. Wish me luck!:jig:

Hey guys, I'm back!
I think I gained a few pounds over Easter break, but they're gonna come back off. :)

Today's plan: Fire 45 Class. :flame:

My 21 year old sister introduced me to Insanity. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks extremely difficult, but I LOVE Shaun T's enthusiasm, and the music is pretty good too!

some of the workouts are on YouTube, so once I get back up to the level of fitness that I was before, I'll try insanity.

How is everybody? :)

teacher1
04-10-2012, 06:55 PM
Emily- I'm good, I went up a little after Easter but now I'm back to 212. Insanity looks hard. Good luck :)

today- rest

I'm really in the mood to take my dogs for a walk today, but it's been snowing!!! :eek: (After 70 degree weather... weird.)

I'm going to let my food digest a little bit, because I can't work out on a full stomach. When I change and get to the TV, I'll do either Fire 30 or Greatest HIITs. :carrot:

Instead of resting yesterday, I walked the cross country tral with my mom and our two dogs. :)
Today, I'll do TurboFire. Just not sure which class yet.

This is the longest period of time that I've kept up with my health and fitness. I've been keeping up with it for about eight months... the longest before this, was only three months. I suppose it's because I'm changing my lifestyle habits overall :)

Have any of you had a breaking point of some kind, some sort of disappointment or something, that got you motivated to get healthy?

Diana3271

Have any of you had a breaking point of some kind, some sort of disappointment or something, that got you motivated to get healthy?

Great job on getting that walk in!

I have lost a lot of weight on 3 different occasions. The first time was in high school. I was at the end of 10th grade and knew I had the Jr/Sr prom in my future. I wanted to do some things, but I knew my weight was holding me back. I lost 100 pounds between that time and starting 11th grade.

The next time, I had been married for 5 years. I had been tested for thyroid issues several times, but they were all negative. I went to my gyno for my yearly pap. I needed my medical records for some reason. I read the comments from the Dr. about me. She described me as being "morbidly obese". I had never heard that term before. I knew what morbid meant and I knew what obese meant. I found that term to be very upsetting for me. I decided to pursue the thyroid test again, because I knew there was something wrong. I was almost 400 pounds at that time. Sure enough, I was hypothyroid! I was put on meds for it. I decided to join a gym and to make an effort to get my health back in order and to start feeling better.

This last time, I was in a car wreck and couldn't continue my workout schedule due to an injury. I started gaining some weight. Then, my Dad was diagnosed with Cancer and ended up passing away. Through that I gained more weight. I was up to almost 300 pounds, although I was working out and trying to eat decent. My Dr. never changed my thyroid meds during this time. I found a new Endo. She said my numbers were really off and changed my meds. I continued to work out and tweak my eating. I began losing weight again and here we are. ;)

I am hoping that this is my last time around this block. I hope to be able to maintain for the rest of my life. Any time my thyroid gets out of whack, I am susceptible to gaining a lot of weight. This is something that I have to stay on top of.

Sorry about the long post (book). ;)

Hey I'm back!! :wave:

Unfortunately, I haven't exercised in about a week!!!
I came down with some horrible virus that caused me to have a SEVERE headache and a fever. I followed the doctor's orders and waited until 24 hours after my fever went away to exercise.

SO, here I am, checking in... I did HIIT 25.

After not doing it for a while, it was a lot more challenging. But it's a reminder to me that it's important I keep up with my routine.

My motivation: I have a vacation coming up very shortly. June 2 - 9 in Virginia Beach. I want to commit right now, and do the very best I can to look good for my vaca. :)

How is everyone? Have any planned vacations?

Hi Everyone! :wave: TGIF!

I had an insanely crazy day! I am totally worn out. You don't hear this very often from me, so you know it must have been bad. I haven't mention much about my Mom recently. Here is a short recap of my day. I haven't given you much in terms of recent history. Basically she has cancer, her anti nausea meds have not been working, she would not call the Dr and forbid me to call the doctor. This is what happened today:

I just got home. I have been running my butt off all day with my Mom. Bottom line is that she called the Dr. They wanted her to come in to check her out and possible IV fluids. I met her there. I had to use a wheel chair to get her in the Dr's office. They did blood work. She immediately needed IV fluids, IV anti nausea meds, and IV potassium. She is scheduled for a blood transfusion on Monday and her chemo treatments for next week have been cancelled. All of this because she is hard headed. Basically because of this, she just about killed herself. I spoke with her and the Dr. I explained that she had forbid me to call the office. I told them I am done with being the obedient daughter. (I have always done everything my Mom's way in order to get along with her) I am becoming the defiant daughter or whatever I have to do. I don't want it on my shoulders that I didn't do the right thing by her. The Dr. scolded her and told her that she had been doing things wrong. After a couple days, she should have called in to report her troubles. She seems to be doing better already and has even eaten some. She literally called me a PITA today. I also had to deal with her sarcasm. Oh well, so be it. The funny thing is that she wanted to hurry to get her fluids and the help today. She is wanting to get the chemo. It's not like she has given up. All of this was her decision. She is just so backward in her thinking. The Dr. asked her if she thought she was going to tough it out? And she said 'yes'. Insane! Also, I told her that I was going to take her back home because she was so sick. She said no that she would drive. I brought the nurse right over and asked her if my Mom could drive. She said absolutely not. On top of that she cannot drive this weekend or until the blood transfusion has taken place and everything is OK. She wouldn't listen to a word that I said, so I had to get the nurse to confirm it. Hopefully she will do what she is suppose to do and continue to get better. Wish me luck! Say a prayer! Did I ever mention that my Mom is a difficult person?

No workout today!

teacher1
04-28-2012, 05:07 PM
Emily- Feel better

Diana- I'm so sorry to hear about all your mom's stuff. I hope she lets you help her and listens to the doctors. Sending prayers your way. My mother is a very strong minded woman too. So I feel your pain!

today- Off at my brother's soccer tournament out of town. so lots of walking today and tomorrow but no formal workout.

Diana3271
04-28-2012, 11:59 PM

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to TF but not new to HIIT. I have been doing HIIT on the treadmill for about 2 months now. However, I was getting bored and needed a change so I came across TF. I did my first workout Fire 30 this morning. The only problem was, she goes so fast I can't keep up. I don't mean physically, I mean in the sense she says the name so fast and I'm not sure what the names of the moves mean. I bought my DVDs second hand so only 4 of them have a functioning new to class option.

If I couldn't keep up because of the names, I generally just repeated the first 2-3 moves of the cycle over and over again. Do you think this is a reasonable substitute? I don't want this to get in the way of my results.

Also, do you all do the stretch 10 at the end or do you just end with your own stretch? Do you think doing my own stretches would hinder my results?

Overall I enjoyed the workout despite my confusion. I think physically it's a good level for me. I hope this helps me build some muscle!

By the way Diana, do you have trouble keeping up with the entire 60 minutes? The longest one I can do is Fire 45!

Emily I am a cardio person, so I don't have trouble with TF 60. I have also been doing TF since it first come out. It's been a while. I have done TF 45 and TF 45EZ back to back, with weighted gloves. I have also done all of the HIITs back to back. (that's 1 1/2 hours of HIITs :eek:) I am like the energizer bunny with cardio, but weights kick my butt! ;) Good luck with your SAT on Saturday! I hope you do well and have a fantastic birthday!
