Tammy Takes Longer to Feel “It” Than Others

On the last day of 2011 my wife experienced something she wasn’t expecting or used to having.

As I’ve documented in my last two posts (here and here), Tammy and I have started a workout program called TurboFire.

Saturday night was our fifth workout and it was the third time we’ve done the Fire 30 session.

Toward the end of the 30-minute class, just after one of the its 60-second “Fire Drills,” I noticed Tammy getting closer to me.

Tammy: Quick, look!! Look what I’m doing!!

She was pointing to her face but I didn’t see anything.

Me: What? Is it twitching or something?
Tammy: No! Look, before it goes away.
Me: Oh, I see it.

“It” was a bead of sweat that had started to roll down Tammy’s face and she was so happy to have “it.”

Tammy: I haven’t a sweat roll in years.

I’m the complete opposite. I can sweat standing still and often do. But Tammy was in unfamiliar territory and she was definitely proud of her “accomplishment.”

Tammy: I’m a stinker, not a sweater.

A few minutes later she was both.

Tammy: Oh man, I stink. I think I forgot to put on deodorant today.

She ran a quick smell test to double-check.

Tammy: Hmmm… It’s not as bad as I thought it would be.

I really can’t remember the last time I’ve seen her sweat, but I have a feeling I’ll be seeing it a lot more in 2012. I just gotta make sure we’re stocked up on deodorant.

    I’m slow to sweat as well. It’s a gift. 🙂

    How do you like TurboFire? I’ve done a couple of chalene’s other workouts, and I’ve done insanity. But I’m a huge fan of Tony Horton. I’m a p90x junkie. I got p90x2 for Christmas and it rocks!

    If you want to write a review of TurboFire and guest post at my Health Bent blog let me know!

      I liked P90X but I knew Tammy wasn’t a fan of all the pushups and pullups so I wanted to try something else. I figured she’d like TurboFire because it’s more upbeat.

      I liked Tony but I kept yelling at him because he’d always have to “check on the kids” and would end up doing about half of the workout. hahaha…

      We just started Week 2 today so I’ll have to see how it goes before I commit to writing something “serious” about it. hahaha…

  2. If TurboFire makes Tammy sweat, it’s got to be good, right?

    Heh. That’s actually pretty hilarious. 🙂
