11.17.10: Great Deal on Shoes!!!

Today: I only have one more segment left on the Fit in Five Ultimate Body Blitz to do! Hoping to get that in tomorrow so I can have the review up then. Im catching up on my reviews. But of course just got a few more in the mail last night LOL. But you know how I love to review so Im a happy camper!

Today's Tip: Save Dessert Calories
Serve your desserts in a shot glass. Instead of a full serving of dessert allow yourself the amount that fits in a shot glass (that's about 3 tablespoons) and you'll save 80 percent of the calories you'd get in a full-size portion. Calories saved:  at least 360. More on Shape here.

Today's Review: The Firm Bootcamp 3-in-1 Mix ***** (5 of 5 stars)
Nancy Tucker, Allie Del Rio, Tracie Long, Pam Meriwether, Heidi Tanner, Jen Carman, Tamela Hastie, Carissa Foster, Dale Brabham, 2002

This is a parts tape from the Firm compiled from various Firms from the library set days. Its a great strength workout with a bunch of leads. The dvd has 3 options- 2 40ish minute workouts or 1 killer 75 minute w/o (they omit 1 set of w/u's & c/d's in the premix version). You will need a FL or step/tall step and a variety of dumbbells for this one.

There is no liaison in this one like some of the parts tapes-the transitions are smooth IMO and it flows together well. You will see a lot of the typical Firm type strength work in this one: leg press, lunges, dips, clean and press, lat rows, and a bit of floor work like pushups, ab work, bridge, and pec flys. Not a lot of LB floor work though.

SO much of this strength work really gets my heart rate up so I know Im burning a lot of calories-especially for a strength workou - one of the many reasons I love my Firms! The pace is nice-they move right along but I didnt feel rushed at all. I was able to heavy up nicely for a Firm.

This is a great versatile w/o that I would highly recommend for any lover of the old time Firms. Its challenging and offers a lot of variety and time options. I would rate this a higher intermediate if you heavy up on it. All the leads do a great job and the cueing is good all around.

Today's LOLz:


  1. Luv the shot glass idea. This time of the year, any and all tips are great to get.


  2. I thought the shot glass idea would be cool for a party! Looks fancy & saves calories :)

  3. Hi Lindsey

    Just reporting back on Jackie Warner's XTreme Timesaver Training. Whoah! It really is like two workouts in one - my heart rate got right up there! Plus, she's clearly a very knowledgeable instructor. I would recommend this DVD to anyone.

  4. I agree- she is definately a knowledgeable trainer! I like her style, not too serious, not too "giggly" great w/o! So glad you like it :)
