The DB15 MMA video is killer. You should definitely consider doing an entire series with Lisa based around MMA. It's a great total body workout and she does a great job instructing. That is one of my favorite videos and my only complaint is that it's short and there isn't more of them! Thanks for everything you guys do!
Have a drink. Big deal. If you look at fitness from the prospective of a life long pursuit, one night off isn't going to kill you. That's how I keep sane. This weekend my mom said, "How is your workout thing going?" My response was, "Things have an end to them. This isn't a thing, this is my life." It's all about sustainability. Have a night off. Make sure you workout hard and eat right that morning, and get back on track the next day. No harm no foul.
stick with it. change is shocking to the body. quitting bad food and beginning to exercise is like coming off drugs. Your body is trying to adjust. All that will subside. You can do it.
wouldn't you rather have something to strive after than something that was too easy?
Inferno is pretty difficult if you aren't already in good shape. Just be ready for it. I started it and had to take a break from it because of the pace.
I posted this in a similar thread:
24lbs since October. Didn't follow the diet, or video plan. I just picked the ones I felt like doing.
Create a diet for yourself that is sustainable. If you feel like you are going without something or can't have something then you will crave it that much more. That doesn't mean that you should eat poorly, but find ways to work the things you love into your diet. I have a 350 calorie Grilled Ham and Cheese sandwich from a gas station for breakfast every morning. I've made it a part of my diet. I make the calories work with my daily allotment. Grilled Cheese's are not healthy, but having something i enjoy helps keep my other cravings at bay. Every now and then I'll have a slice of pizza, but just one slice and on a day I worked out really hard, and I make sure I don't go over my calories. If you put too many restrictions on your diet all you will want to do is quit. I've created a plan that I could live on, and that's how i've stuck with it for 6 months.
just realized that you were talking about Ignite not Intelliburn. Sorry. Never tried the diet.
I'm not a woman, but I have thyroid disease, and am on thyroid replacements. I've lost 54 lbs. The weight comes off slower but it's not impossible to lose.
