Still Working on My Fitness (This Post is My Witness)

Now I'm singing Fergalicious.

Sometime during August I made a deal with myself to workout every day. As in every. single. stinking. day.

But it was good, really, really good for me.

I tend to be all or nothing.

Here's what I rotated through, not really following a set schedule but definitely incorporating strength training along with my cardio workouts at least three days a week:
I love cardio workouts, especially dance-y-kickboxing ones, so TurboFire and Les Mills Combat were perfect for that. The music is awesome and the routines are super fun, so totally a win-win.

Sidenote: Yes, we have almost all the Beachbody programs, because they are awesome home workouts, and they are so convenient but we aren't coaches (at least not yet).

For strength I mainly relied on ChaLEAN Extreme, the PUSH and LEAN circuits (each block for three weeks-ish), but would also do Les Mills Pump or the strength choices in Combat sometimes.

Sidenote: Once I know the routines I like to pump up the jam, which is an option in the menu, so the verbal cues are muted. Sometimes all the talky-talky annoys me (not so much in Turbo Fire, but Dan and Rachel are a bit chatty in Combat and the trainers in Pump are quite chatty as well). Mute is your friend (but you still have great music).

Adding in regular strength training workouts, and challenging myself to go heavier at times, really makes a huge difference for me. I LOVE seeing changes in my body, feeling stronger and noticing more muscle developing! Granted, it's nothing huge and it might not even be noticeable to others, but it's happening slowly but surely. 

Sidenote: Don't be scared to lift weights, y'all. Increasing muscle helps us to burn more fat and get lean/toned at the same time, without getting bulky.

Over this last week I decided it was time to switch things up again and keep my body guessing, which is a good thing. Last Friday I started P90X3, which was a bit of a shock at first from what I've been doing, but I'm excited to get back into it and go further with it this time (I never made it to Block 2, much less 3, whomp-whomp).
P90X3 is like P90X on crack packed into only 30 minutes, which is good, but I'm used to working out about an hour or a bit more most days, so I decided to try the doubles calendar. During Block 1 you add in a stretching type of workout (Dynamix) with your regular one a few days a week, so I'm going to do that for now. I might go old school P90X here and there as well, (nothing crazy, just plug one in once or twice a week for longer strength training) because they are super effective workouts. Once in a while I'll probably toss in PiYo for flexibility and maybe some Cize for my inner hip hop dance queen.

P90X3 is a 3 month program.


Can I stick with it?

I'll keep y'all posted.
