TurboFire & a “Different Week”

Happy Monday! For the first time in I don’t know how long, I’m excited for this week. Even though it’s super busy, I’ve got a lot to look forward to:

  • Getting a week away house-sitting, starting on Thursday
  • New Modern Family episode, FINALLY
  • Having family come into town for Easter
  • Getting a massage on Saturday
  • Starting the TurboFire! program

Let’s talk a little more about TurboFire! for a minute. Basically it was developed by Chalene Johnson and is an “intense cardio conditioning” workout that is set to high-energy dance tracks and burns a ridiculous amount of calories. Since I am now a BeachBody coach, I obviously want to try as many of their products as I can so I can accurately give recommendations to my customers! My issue is that I’m really getting back into exercise for the first time this week after 2 weeks off and I still want to keep up with yoga. My plan for now is to do 20 minutes of yoga in the morning before work and do my 50-ish minute TurboFire! workouts each evening after work. Not sure how well this will work out, but I’ve found that I need to make time to exercise in order to keep up with it. I really miss moving my body and am dying to get back into it. My other option is to take my laptop to the gym really early in the morning (like 6 a.m.) and go in the exercise room with it and do my DVD there. That could work as well! I guess I’ll just see how I’m feeling in the morning and go from there Smile

I wanted to start my new workout program yesterday, but I woke up and was still pretty darn sick.


Instead, I made myself my first ever Shakeology with my chocolate vegan flavor. It was delicious! I simply shook it up in my blender bottle with 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk and it honstly took up a milkshake-like consistency. It was yummy and I can only imagine how much better it will be when I actually blend it together with some ice and possibly a banana!


Now I’m all ready to start up my new program for the next 20 weeks! Here is the schedule I will be following. We will see how this goes. I’m determined to stick with it, simply because I am told exactly what to do (exercise-wise) each day. It can’t get much easier than that. Better yet is that the rest day for the TurboFire calendar is Wednesdays. That’s the day I like to go to my slow-flow yoga class; perfect!


If you missed it, yesterday I did a post/vlog talking a little bit more about BeachBody Smile


And of course, remember this:

“Your journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don’t think that you’ve lost time. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time.”

What does your exercise schedule look like this week?


  1. That Turbofire sounds intense! I’m curious to hear how it is.

    My workout regimen this week will, unfortunately, be slim to none…I’m going to be so busy with going into tech week for the show I’m directing…Maybe I should aim to do yoga/pilates in the early morning before work. That seems like a good plan.

      Um, so freaking intense. I have never sweat so much in my life. Take some time to yourself this week since you will be so busy!! Yoga in the morning before work is AMAZING. Seriously sets you off on a whole new foot for the day.

    Hooray for a new Modern Family!! Finally!

    This week I have a bunch of running training for upcoming races and I’ll probably also do a few Jillian Michaels shred workouts. Good luck with your TurboFire!

  3. Sounds like you are busy busy busy. Hope you get some time to unwind too!

  4. A massage sounds fabulous!! Sometimes those are just SO needed for our mental sanity! :)

  5. Thumbs up for doing Turbofire and for being a coach! I’ve always been curious about Shakeology because it’s all over the P90X ads too and I’ve been scared to try. I’m been afraid that it would taste like protein powder and it costs too much to just toss it. :p

    Definitely keep us posted! :)

      Thank you! Shakeology is SO good. My favorite way to drink it is blended with 1 cup almond milk, a little bit of ice, and a banana. Tastes like a milkshake! If you’re interested in it, let me know and I can help ya out :) Trust me, I’m SUPER picky about protein and have tried out a million different powders, and I actually truly like this one. Turbofire was SO intense tonight. I thought I was going to drip all the sweat possible out of my body.
