"Good sleep and nutrition :) I do 10-15min HIIT cardio before I do any lifting and usually 10min light cardio afterwards. On leg day I'll use the elliptical or rower, other days I'll use the bike. My sessions are 60min-90min in total. I…"

Turbo, Lifting, and Overtraining question

Today I went to the psychiatrist to talk about my anxiety issues. I told her that cardio had cured me before, but that I had been focusing more on lifting with very light cardio lately. She recommended I do a 10-minute cardio workout before lifting. I just finished my TurboFire HIIT 15 and am moving to the weights in just a moment. I do have one question though -- for those of you who have suffered from overtraining, how do I avoid that?See More

Time to amp up my cardio. I do light cardio and heavy lifting, as you guys know, but my anxiety issues have popped back up. The thing that cured me before was intense cardio. I'll dust out the TurboFire and TurboJam. I also like the Zombies! Run! app so I'll throw that in the mix. What's everyone else up to these days?See More

And so it Continues.....

I only have 1 week left of Piyo and 3 weeks left of Beast!!!!  It has flown by!  I've loved both programs.  Piyo has been hard in the sense that one has to be really focused on what is going on. My mindset hasn't always been there, but when it is, I'm amazed w/ how far my flexibility has come.  I am almost to the point where I can even say that I love downward dog!  I've struggled w/ that pose for years but it's come a long way.  I also am enjoying bowler's and runner's lunges a bit more though…See More

Well School starts back in 3 weeks, so I need to make the most of the free time I have right now. I've been keeping up my tracking on my fitness pal, lifting my heavy weights, and going to my dance classes. It's been a fantastic summer with lots of long walks, camping, hiking, going to the water park. Clean eating is more of a challenge when I'm not in school. I think that's because at school I don't have my cabinet full of food to tempt me all day. I pack my lunch and avoid the vending machine…See More

"Sorry about the bad cramps. My period is changing as I get older so cramps are getting worse for me, but I'm getting fewer period headaches so that's a win. Looks like you get the ol' food hangover too, eh?"

"I switched to lifting heavy weights and just doing light cardio (dance class and walking) and that was my magic formula. Now I can't get into the heavy duty cardio any more. I even struggle to get through Chalene's workouts."

I <3 Piyo

Ok so July has been HARD.  Seriously a ton of emotional stuff going on. My grandpa just got diagnosed w/ cancer, my whatever you wanna call this long distance relationship I've got going has been on the rocks, my grandma fell yesterday breaking her wrist when she was trying to help my grandpa.  Let's just say thank goodness it's August.  I've missed several workouts but not nearly as much as I thought I would w/ everything that's been going on.  I'm only on week 3 of Piyo even though I've been…See More
