ARE YOU READY TO ENGAGE YOURSELF FOR 90 DAYS??

Do you want to get in the best shape of your life?

Do you want a coach who will push you and encourage you?

Then you are in the right place! Throw away all excuses and doubts! Instead decide to make a change! Commit to that change! Continue to challenge yourself to succeed! YOU CAN DO THIS. I am here to help you along the way. So dig deep and together we will cross the finish line!

I've completed P90X, a P90X/P90X+ hybrid, Insanity, P90X2 and Asylum. I've improved my health, dropped 30 pounds, lowered my cholesterol 40 points and look and feel better at 49 than I have at any time in my adult life. I currently got TF on the sale and have been incorporating it into my last phase of P90X. I can't beleive how much I like it and how great Chalene is. She makes it fun and the time flies, but youwill WORK HARD!

PLEASE READ!!

GOALS
Why are you doing this? Is it to loss 5 to 10 pounds, is it to impress someone, or is it to change your life? This is a life changing program and it is totally worth it and everything worthwhile is worth working for. To make sure that you get these life changes you should read through the Fitness and Nutrition guides to help you understand the steps necessary. Whatever your goals are now, I urge you to consider this a lifetime change, not just a 90 day challenge. Make fitness part of your life and you will forever be thankful and you will be a better partner, parent, person and be around for the ones you love. Make your GOALS SMART:

S = Specific "I want to lose weight," is not very specific. How about: "I am going to lose 15 pounds or 2 pants or dress sizes."

M = Measurable Anything that you can measure.

A = Attainable Is it possible to attain your goal? Don't go overboard, but don't go too easy either.

R = Realistic Related to Attainable, ha to be something you can do. Are you looking to lift a cretain weight, run a faster mile or just not get out of breath tying your shoes.

T = Time Limited Give yourself a deadline. The TF schedule is flexible depending on if you need the Prep period or if you have the deluxe discs.

Nutrition
If you want great results, then consider nutrition half of the battle. Nutrition plays a major role in how we reach our goals. Read the nutrition guide and follow the plan. You can prepare week by week or whole month at a time.

Shakeology®, the healthiest meal of the day. Want a simple way to transform your health? All it takes is one glass of Shakeology® a day. This ultra-premium nutritional health shake contains the world's most powerful superfoods. It's the perfect combination of antioxidants, phytonutrients, enzymes, prebiotics, protein and many rare ingredients – including adaptogens, camu-camu, and sacha inchi – giving you the essential nutrients you can't get from an ordinary diet. Replace one meal a day with Chocolate, Tropical Strawberry or Greenberry Shakeology to increase your energy, reduce cravings, lose weight, improve digestion and regularity, and transform your health.* and it's just 150 calories..

Motivation
Nothing is more important than motivation. Times will get tough and there are going to be days that you feel like you cannot get up or you feel too tired at night to workout. This is where your coach and these boards help out. By joining this thread you will find like minded people that will push you and look for help from you to be pushed. It helps to have not just your coach in your corner but a whole team ready to cheer you on and waiting for you to cheer them on. Plus Chalene will push you daily.

Also Track your accomplishments:
• Take your measurements
• Take your before and after pictures
• Use the Worksheets

I can't stress this part enough. It REALLY helps to see your progress! Get those measurements and pictures. You don’t have to share your pictures but the motivation that it provides to others is invaluable as you will see when others post their pictures. Take a look at these videos to help you get your photos and measurements right.

Workouts
WARNING: The first week is usually ROUGH for most people. Plus with TF there is a learning curve as Chalene goes fast and you need to learn the moves. Just stick with it. Time and repetition help a lot and before you know it you'll be flying around like a pro.

Pre-Workout
All the workouts are intense! You need the right fuel to “Bring It!” and a pre-workout meal about an hour before is important. But be warned if you workout too close to the pre-workout meal you may lose it.

If you workout first thing in the morning, you can skip the meal but you may want to include a 1/3 of your recovery drink in to your water to make sure that you have enough energy to get through your workouts or 1/2 a banana or try the Energy and Endurance for that extra push.

Post Workout:
One of the most important parts of any exercise routine is a recovery drink. I cannot stress how important this is. By adding a recovery drink immediately after your workout you will significantly decrease the amount of soreness you will experience while recovering from your workouts. Plus it replaces vital nutrients that you burned during your workout and prevents muscle damage. The P90X Recovery Drink is a very good product and I highly recommend it. Aside from the proper 4:1 Carbsemoticonrotein ratio, it has Creatine and L-Glutamine which both help your muscles replenish and rebuild.

Equipment:
Great thing about TF is all you need is a band and it should have come with your package. If you need more resistance you can always order a higher resistance band here.

Lastly post your Accountability Daily.
The message boards are a great way to meet others that are going through what you are going through and it helps stay accountable and motivated! Everyone comes from different backgrounds and will be able to share tips and information that has helped them and could help you as well. The boards helped me tremendously through my first round of P90X and I can tell you if we can get a group to stick through this together, we will all be better for it. Statistics show the success rate for programs grows tremendously for people that take part in a group, so here's your group to improve your chance of success.

I look forward to getting to know you. I’ve met many great people in my time here and look forward to meeting more. Personally I'm going to do the program with a few twists, but for the most part will be following the program.

I can tell you having a coach in your corner makes a BIG difference. I met coachLarry while doing insanity (started in Aug 2011)! been with him every since, through many programs! just started the 5 day TF inferno plan, on day 2! still learning the moves, but love it.

so hop on board, having others doing the same program is terrific, but no matter what you are doing, it helps to have someone to hold you accountable!!

Accountability Day 74 Shoulders and Arms - Oh man this is a burner. I've been really maxing out on the resistance discs lately and it is burning me up. I find the fatigue in the resistance discs is harder to work through than the fatigue of cardio. And it gets harder as I get older. Great workout. I had done abs 3 days in a row and got a late start so no ARX tonight. As I noted in the first post, I'm finishing another round of P90X and using TF as the Cardio.

Rx Thanks for dropping by, definitely doing the programs with others doing the same thing makes a big difference

Jo Thanks for the kind words, you've been an awesome workout partner through quite a few programs. Good luck with the 5-day Inferno.

Greg Thanks for stopping by. Surprisingly as I'm doing TF with P90X, I am really enjoying it and Chalene. I thought it was going to be girly, but it is hard work and she is awesome. Hoping to help some new people find their path.

Getting later here so I'm calling it a night. be back tomorrow, I think I have Fire 55 on tap.

Accountability Day 75 FIRE 55 EZ - First of all there is no 5 that's not EZ in my package, so I did EZ. Usually EZ means no jumping, but there was jumping. It was long and I was all out of sync tonight, couldn't seem to get the moves. But I kept moving and punching and kicking even if not always the same one they did (I was close). It was a sweatfest and long, but good workout.

Mike - Thanks for stopping by, just waiting for some Turbo people and get this inferno burning

Have a great night everyone, as Chalene says in this disc, do something good for yourself, concentrate on that not the scale and good things will happen.

Good morning Team ENGAGE. I fear the kids are trying to share their Sinus infections with me. I have been blessed with an unusuallt strong immune system and many times as a child and adult have sat healthily by while watching everyone else get sick. I can tell my body is battling it, but I'm phlegmy and have hadheadaches yesterday and today (2 yesterday). I'm at work though and till planning for Base and Back tonght (you have no idea how hard that workout is for me, I dread it). Hope ou all have a good day.

Not sure how many of you know who he is, but Zig Ziglar passed away yesterday. He was a great motivator and while a lot of his stuff is geared toward sales, it encompasses life as well. I kind of rushed to find a quote of his with a picture so here it is, but if you have a moment, Google Zig Ziglar Quotes and see some of his handy work. RIP Zig.

Hey gang, got an unexpected call that the father of a guy I used to play baseball with passed and it was a one night wake. So tonight was spent with some old friends. Funny how so much of the people we didn't know had heard of my brother and I, it was actually kind of nice. Obviously this friend had spoken kindly about us, makes me think we did something right as managers. Didn't work out so now decisions come. Either take rest day as scheduled and start week 12 on Saturday as planned, or do tonight's workout tomorrow and start week 12 with the cardio day as I did today. We'll see tomorrow. Have a great night all.

Improve - When did you start, what day are you on? I hope you stick around here and help get this thing rolling. If you just started, how do you like it. Bigger learning cure than the other discs for me, her moves take some coordination, but it is much harder than I thought and hard work. Good luck. Sorry so short tonight, I'll be back to normal tomorrow.

Good morning Team ENGAGE, happy Friday. Hope you all have a plan for today and a backup plan. One thing about waking up at 5:15 and getting home after 6:30 is my weekdays pretty much have a plan and not much chance for a backup when unexpected things pop up like last nigt.

Just for today in honor of Zig Ziglar, I'll put a few of his quotes up. Have a great day everyone.

“Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.”

“Among the things you can give and still keep are your word, a smile, and a grateful heart.”

“You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great”

“There are no traffic jams on the extra mile.”

Oh man this afternoon quickly turned into a nightmare at the close. One small error is a single stock, and my guesstimate is there is a potential of $15-20 error. Got home late and tired and did not workout. This was originally rest day so I really only missed one day this week, but not happy. Going to be a tough week coming up too, so much going on. Not a lot of time now, hope you all had a great day.

Gotta go spend some family time and get some sanity back, the amount of stress tha can turn on a dime and hit you ay my job is incredible. 4:00 my day was winding down and the weekend was coming, next thing you know it's 3 hours later and I'm still there on large conference calls with too many questions without answers and people's fuses getting short. Just need to wind it down now.

I had a rough week too, but knowing that I'm on the right track to reach my fitness goals makes all the difference. If you're not already committed to a workout plan, get on this thread and get moving. Keep pushing play!
