Fit N' Fabulous New Year's Challenge (Day 6)

So! Before I start talking about the Challenge... I have to share with all of you readers, that I am officially Turbo Kick Certified!!!! I received my certificate in the mail yesterday!! I am so fired up!! Teaching fitness to others is all I want to do... and this has really opened some doors for me :))

Today is already day SIX of our 90 day challenge!! I'm having so much fun with the two programs... ChaLEAN Extreme and Insanity. This week I have been doing my workouts one on top of another. I do ChaLEAN Extreme, have a P90X Recovery Drink, load up on my water and then dig deep right into Insanity. Afer Insanity, I indulge in a protein shake, either Shakeology or Vega in both I add Hemp Protein.
I haven't had to "up" my calories quite yet... but I am making sure that I'm eating EVERY 2-2.5 hours. I'm pretty hungry when that 2 hour mark rolls around.
An average day pretty much looks like this:
P90X Recovery Formula
Protein Shake
Oatmeal (with peanut butter), Morning Star "bacon"
Boca Burger and Brown Rice
Protein Shake
A big salad with LOTS of veggies

My shakes are 32 oz, they're BIG! So they fill me up! I know that I will have to add calories soon... I don't want to be working out really hard and not fueling my body properly. So in the Insanity Elite Nutrition Booklet, there are a few options that you can add to your meals to add "good" calories.
100 Calorie Example:
- 1 banana
- 12 Raw Almonds
200 Calorie Example:
-1/2 cup oatmeal topped with slivered almonds
-1 banana with 1 tbsp peanut butter
-1 large navel orange with 12 Raw almonds

This is just a few of the choices, there's plenty more.

All in all I'm feeling pretty good!! This is a GREAT challenge and will leave the people who are doing it with FABULOUS SEXY Bodies!!!

1. What's the craziest exercise fad you have heard about lately?

*FitFlops are being advertised to tone the thighs, calves and glutes.
*A "micro-wobble board" is a mini balancing board on the shoe, which creates stability for the wearer. It supposedly works the thighs, calves and glutes.

2. What are other CRAZY fads from the past?

You must be smokin' hot by now Malynda! : ) I cannot even imagine pushing it that hard. I think the lack of sleep from my brothers wedding is the culprit though. Maybe when I'm all rested up!
I'll have to think about the fad thing. Hmmmm.....
