October Challenge: Turbo Pump

See what I did there? My name for my hybrid of turbo fire and les mills pump is Turbo Pump. Cute right? Or really dorky :) I created a month long schedule for October that I will be following to tone and burn and get in shape for the holidays. If you would like a copy leave a comment!

Today I did day 2, the first day of turbo and pump. Great workout!  I did the Pump Challenge first then the HIIT 15 from Turbo Fire.  Honestly - I HATE Pump Challenge.  It's a great workout, don't get me wrong.  But there is no warm up, no cool down, and they talk too much between sets.  I know it's the intro level workout, but for something you do so often during the first month of Pump, it gets really really repetitive   I wish there was a new to class option like there is for Turbo so you can watch that stuff once then move on.  But alas there is not.  I'll just deal with it, it's only a few more times then I'm on to Pump and Burn, which is more like a full workout.  Tomorrow is a glorious rest day, which is good because I'm going to use the opportunity to swap back to morning workouts.  Evening workouts are just not my thing anymore, why did I even bother?

Now I'm enjoying a crazy delish dinner of butternut squash and chickpea stew over millet with a side of roasted veggies. So so good! Eating at least a cup of veggies every meal is my tip of the day. It fills you up, leaving no room for junk food.


I promise, it was all delicious :)  

My blogging mentor Tabby told me October is 31 days of blogging.  So I'm going to set a goal to blog every day this month.  I'll be posting about my weight loss journey of course, but also more recipes and general health topics.  I also am thinking about doing a giveaway, I have something cool to give out, but that depends on if anyone actually reads this blog.  Otherwise I'll just give it to Tabby :)
