You may have noticed that there haven’t been any Turbo Fire updates, that’s because I got very discouraged doing one titled Core 20. My body literally can not move like that yet. The core exercises were near impossible and I found myself watching and making half-hearted attempts thinking that would somehow make me capable in doing them.
I haven’t worked out since Saturday morning and was going to admit defeat and do something else instead of the Turbo Fire / ChaLEAN Extreme combo I was doing. And then I received this comment:
You can do it!!!!! Whatever you do, you can’t get discouraged!!!
And this one that made me cry:
Jen you are truly an inspiration!! THIS right here is why you blog. There are so many people who are moments away from walking away from it all BUT all it will take is for them to read this and they will be inspired. YOU will inspire them. You’ve inspired me! Thank you Jen!
I put my big girl pants on and I’m NOT admitting defeat. There are some moves I can’t do right now, but if I keep trying, I will be able to do them!!!
My Mom and I are starting a yoga class tonight. I’m nervous about doing yoga in front of people, but I’m excited as well. And tomorrow morning, I WILL be doing a TF or CLX DVD.

My 3 year old LOVES these! He thinks they are candy bars! I like how they fill me up for hours and taste delicious as well. I’m not a huge chocolate fan, but these have just enough chocolate to be sweet, but they aren’t overpowering.
I love me some potstickers, they are little dumplings of goodness and up until today, my preferred method of cooking was what they told me to do on the bag; boil in water and then “fry” them in olive oil so they turn brown and get crispy. I had another idea. I turned the oven to 425 and used 2 teaspoons of olive oil (to get in the recommended amount by WW) and baked until they were brown on the top, then flipped them over until they were brown on the other side. Did they taste like they do cooked in a pan with oil? No. But, they were still good and I will cook them like this again!
I also had a simple salad of lettuce, broccoli slaw and Trader Joe’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette and strawberries.
