Just ordered chalean extreme today!!
Have looked at it a few times over the past few weeks and did it finally.
I recently have been recovering from a surgery and a now cleared to resume all and any activity as I can tolerate. After 6 weeks of doing nothing ( not able to lift over 10 lbs) I have decided this is the time to do it !!
Prior to 6 weeks ago I was a gym goer. Daily visits to the gym for a spin class, boot camp or a power class. But after 2 years or so I really did not see a lot happen . I maintained at where I was.
I'm 5 '2" and around 125-130 depending on the day.
I would love to loose inches off my chest and belly.
I know what has always held me back was my diet
Eating peanut butter and jam sandwiches , kids Halloween candy ( like10 mini chocolate bars) breads , desserts.
I know very terrible but sooo true !!
My clothes are getting a bit tighter ( tight size 6 ish ) not happy with that
AND and am going to do something about it ! Hopefully these message boards will make me accountable.
I work full time ( 12 hour night shifts as a nurse) and have 2 great kids and a wonderful husband.
Previously have done P90X with hubby and had a great time . But this time I wanted to shake it up and lift weights more and see if I get results.
Cannot wait to start !

Anybody else soon to begin ??

Congrats on ordering ChaleanX

Im glad to hear your doing better now & you got the green light from the doc.

I to used to go to the gym & would loose but never really could carve out the body I wanted. I looked it to a personal trainer & for the cost it made sense to me to buy the videos & my personal trainer could be right there in my living room & garage when I wanted & the time I set. It makes it so much easier to workout & the results really pay for the programs..... Priceless when you can fit your clothes comfortably.

My husband & I Just finished ChaleanX and are currently doing Bodybeast. We just started Monday. I enjoyed lifting weights so much I went to a more challenging program.... Loving BodyBeast!

The message boards are great for accountability!

Let me know if you have any questions,

Carlie

I just started on Monday. I've been looking at the boards and it doesn't seem like many others are, shall we say, "ambitious," ;-) enough to start a new workout program during the holidays! But my fat pants are very tight, so it's either this or buy new clothes!

Any way, I'm looking forward to tonight's workout, the Burn Interval. I think it should be completely different than the two other Burn videos I've done.

Good luck!

I just ordered it today also, can't wait to get started!
I will be watching the mailbox until it arrives. I am in Canada, so not sure how long it will take.
Really looking forward to launching a pre-emptive pre-holiday strike.
Best of luck to you,
Sheri

Hi!

I started round 2 of Chalean Extreme on Monday. Yes, this time of year is tough. I'm finding it hard to stay motivated but I'm determined to do it! I had great results with round 1 of CLX, I think it was 10 inches or so but I haven't even added it up yet, oh and 10 pounds.emoticon Before that it was Insanity so this is my 3rd round of BB.

I'm willing to check in here too for accountablilty - let's goooooo! We can do this!

Hi! Sorry, been away from the boards...

I did Insanity before I did CLX. I started following the Insanity food guide about 30 days into that program. I used some of the recipes from the guide and was (and still am) eating 5 - 300 calorie meals a day. I think Chalene's recipies are similar but her calorie ranges are a little different. Shawn T's were set up as 300 calorie meals with adaptaions listed to add in 100 calorie increments. I just found this "less work" to follow than the CLX guide. (call me lazy and I don't like to cook!) I think nutrition is a HUGE part of the success you have with these programs. You can't eat burgers, fries and chicken wings and then workout thinking you'll change your body. It's a whole package.

Insanity is a 6 day/week program and CLX is 5 days. I wanted to stick with 6 days so I did CLX as the guide said with an additional Insanity workout on one of the off days. So yes, I did follow the calendar - except I converted it to 4 weeks instead of a month. I dropped the last 2 days of the month calendar and just converted to weeks so my rest days would stay the same.

Go heavy or go home!!!!!

Hello Everyone!! I just started my second round of TF/Chax hybrid, so for I'm loving. I know if I stick with this I can get through the holiday season. For all of you that do Chax do you write down your weights that you lift, I didn't the first time through, but finding the second time through this really is helping me see how strong I am becoming. After this Hybrid I was looking at getting Insanity, can anyone tell me how Insanity is different from Turbofire??? Thank you!!

Hi Mrs Kato

Insanity is completely different from Turbo Fire! Turbo Fire is a dancey, kickboxing kind of program, with great music and tons of FUN!! In my opinion Turbo Fire is the BEST program out there!

Insanity is more drill based kind of cardio! Many people LOVE it and Shaun T... and get fantastic results with it! I completed one round of it, but missed Turbo Fire the entire time.. in fact I subbed one of his workouts for a Turbo Fire workout and usually did TF on my rest days as well... so I could get my TF fix in emoticon

I am a TurboFire-holic! There is no program (YET-however I'm starting LMCombat really soon emoticon ) that even comes close to Turbo Fire for me! It changed my life and I've been immersed in Turbo Fire for an entire year!! It is my "soulmate workout"!! emoticon

Hope that helps!

Sherrie

I have written down my weights since day 1. Not sure I could have done it without writing them down. I just don't have that kind of memory. Using the worksheets that are here on the website was quite helpful. They can be found under Nutrition Tools- I think. I don't know why they don't just come with the package that you order?????
