Day 70 (day 7 / week 10)

Today I did Turbo Jam's Cardio Party Mix 1 again (no surprises there, right? lol). The sculpting gloves feel totally normal to me now and aren't awkward anymore :). Yaay :).

Yesterday I was looking around to see if I could see any sample videos of the other Turbo Jam videos out there (there's other cardio parties, and fat burner videos) and I found one that I was able to download and view on my computer! This is going to be a life saver for when we are moving.

Friday and Sat (26th & 27th) we will load the truck, and will hopefully be on our way Sat afternoon. We are going to stop in a little town called Tonopah, NV and stay there for the night. Sunday morning after breakfast sometime, we will finish the trip to Vegas. We don't need to stop in Tonopah (the trip can easily be made in 1 day) but we are going to anyway, just to make the move easier on us, Logan and the in-laws, since they are graciously flying to Reno to help us with this move.

Since we set the dates on moving and made things concrete, I have been trying to figure out how I am going to exercise on that Saturday and Sunday, as we wont have our TV/DVD hooked up. I know moving boxes and all that is like exercise and all, but that just feels like cheating (too easy!). So finding this video online put my mind at rest. My hubby also reminded me that I could probably just play the DVD I have, on the computer (pssht, way to make it easy bub!) which I might actually do (lol).

Anyway if you want to see this video, here is the link. I found it on youtube, and going there now, to get the link for you guys, it looks like you can download ANY of the Turbo Jam videos they have up to view (in the description--it says "Full video in HQ download form:" and gives a megaupload.com link)--they are actually all of the TJ videos I bought and have been doing for $60 in the TJ Maximum Results except for the last one, which didn't come with Maximum Results (Learn & Burn, Cardio Party Mix 1, 20 Minute Workout, AB Jam and Fat Blaster--the one I downloaded) (this is all probably totally illegal which is why i see they aren't available anymore) lol. I will probably end up buying the entire series set anyway, since I <3 all things Turbo Jam (have I mentioned that yet??) and working out to the computer isn't my forte. It is just for the move. You can see everything I have been talking about for the last week or so there though, so you know what I have been talking about :). I think with that megaupload link, you can view the video on that website w/out having to download it.

Jason has a really great job lead, which is a HUGE blessing! It came out of no where, which to me is a total God thing. When it rains, it pours, and if this job is meant for Jason, it means that I will be able to go back to school right away (and I can buy everything else that is all things Turbo Jam lol). We can really use any and all prayers in this department. It's still kind of scary that we don't have any source of income yet, and 2 (yes 2) car payments to make with a fast dwindeling savings account (it'll be gone by the end of April).

Thank you for your prayers in advance. I hope you enjoy viewing TJ on youtube. I <3 Turbo Jam!

Have a great workout! Try Turbo Jam! It's SO much FUN! Do the 20 minute one, it's only 20 minutes! or the Ab Jam--also 20 minutes, but split into 2 10 minute segments, if you don't want to do both.

(sorry for the super long post today!)

I can do this. I am a star.

Wow, you're making me want to buy Turbo Jam! :)

Good luck on the move! Moving is HARD. And as for the job - don't worry, God reads your blog too!

Miriam the Mommy said...

Okay, question - I watched some other (legal) Turbo Jam bits on YouTube, and it looks like it would be really hard to keep up and not fall on your face, changing moves so so rapidly. But you didn't mention falling on your face! Are you just a good dancer?

Melissa Henning said...

lol! no, i haven't fallen on my face. It looks harder than it is. I can say that if I don't continue to do it w/ them, like if I just stop, it's hard to get back into it.

If you do the "learn & burn" the learn part is learning the moves. She goes over them really slowly so that you can keep up, and explains the moves--what you are targeting, and how to do it properly. Then we practice them. Then we go onto the 2nd segment "burn" which I thought I wasn't going to be able to keep up with at all, but I did :).

No. I am not a good dancer either lol. It's like Slim in 6 in getting used to the moves. Learn & Burn (for TJ) is like the 1st one for Turbo Jam (like Start It Up is for Slim in 6). Once you master that, you move on. I did "Burn" a few times until I felt comfortable going from movement to movement. I was pleasantly surprised when I moved on that I could keep up. You get used to her ques also. She tells you waht comes next, and in Learn, you learn that certain moves follow each other and go with each other, so you can kind of expect it to come at some point.

I personally think it would be hard to just jump in and do any TJ video w/out doing "learn" first :). You have to admit that it looks fun though, right?

Hope this helps :).
