Thankfully, I started doing TurboFire. I had done ChaLean Extreme and Turbo Jam but something in her conviction and urging in Turbo Fire in that it wasn't nailing all of the moves more than it was bringing the intensity changed something in me. I was guilty of dogging it and not bringing my all. I did 6 weeks of Turbo Fire recently and was getting a little burned out on it so I decided to mix it up for February. But I took that lesson learned in Turbo Fire forward with me. Monday we did Dance Dance Revolution and thanks to pumping my arms in the air and closely watching my awesome heart rate monitor, a workout that would've netted me about 600 calories burned if I was lucky, grabbed 950 calories burned. By keeping my heart rate up and not taking advantage of the little breaks, I was able to get the desired result by...gasp...putting in the work! (Every second, not just when the instructor or song told me to) I am so thankful to have learned this lesson because there's no going back now and I really should thank Chalene Johnson for teaching me that...so, thanks Chalene!
