Quick 2010 Recap

I've been on a good streak of fabulous years. 2008 - went on a fabulous two-week trip to England, my husband proposed. 2009 - got married, went to Jamaica on honeymoon, bought our first condo. 2010 was pretty wonderful too. My highlights:

2nd trip to Jamaica for my 30th birthday.

Vegas in August

Running my first, second and third 5K's.

Christmas is all done and back to work tomorrow after 12 wonderful days off. It was great having a long break. I had nothing scheduled except for Christmas related visiting with family and nothing I particularly wanted to get done. Fabulous.
Food choices have not been great for the past 3 weeks or so but I’ve been working out consistently 4 or more times per week which I’m happy with. Curious to what the scale says, but I’ll leave that until tomorrow. I started doing yoga once a week which I’ve loving. Feeling more flexible and less stiff around the knees.
My husband gave me a bunch of fitness related Christmas gifts – work out gloves (I was getting calluses from weight training), some Lululemon gear and this:

Turbo Fire!
Very excited about this.
I decided to start with the prep schedule before getting into the High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) DVD’s. So this week I did the following:
  • Fire 30 & Stretch 10 (fun and maybe a wee bit too difficult for my current fitness level)
  • Stretch 40 twice (love it!!)
  • Fire 45 (was supposed to do Fire 45 EZ but did Fire 45 by mistake – sweating like crazy but tons of fun!)
  • Tone 30
  • Core 20 (did this with husband who is almost done 90 days of P90X – he liked most of the moves and found it challenging)
I’ll do more in depth reviews as I go. So far though, its harder than my beloved Turbo Jam but has some of the same moves and the music is fantastic.
