Cardio power & Resistance in Week 4

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

I can honestly say I almost made it thru the entire video without taking LONG breaks. I had a minimum # of breaks.

Lately I find myself turning away from the tv screen and stay qued by Shaun T. voice. I do alot better by not watching the group. I am able to keep my own pace push myself when I am ready, seems to be working.

I have also learned to control my aerobic breathing alot better too. It's a learnt skill that requires actual thought.

Great workout day. See ya tomorrow!

    That's very impressive! Insanity is vicious so if you can get almost through any of the workouts without stopping now you are making great progress. I just started it again (didn't finish it the first time) and I'm taking a whole lot of breaks. lol.

Strange Feeling this Morning

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

As I rolled out of bed this mornig and took 2 steps, I felt something oddly familiar. SO I kept walking to the bathroom to see if the feeling would persist or subside. When I walked back to my bed, it STRUCK ME!!

I feel like I was/am floating across the floor. So I ran back to the bathroom, hopped on the scale. I lost 1 whole pound. YES!!! So to double check I got on scale again. Woohooo!

Ok people, I am not crazy. There have been times in my past that I felt this feeling and would verify with the scale and I have been right 9 of 10 times. LOL I honestly do feel lighter. You ask how can any feel 1 pound lighter. I dont know but its true! Its a gift. LOL

I am doing so much better with eating, still have my vices. But I actually think hard before ordering food at work, consume more water, and snack-well thats my itty bitty problem.

    I know what you're saying. You do feel it when the weight is dropping. Keep it up. You are doing an excellent job. Thanks for being such a great motivator. I really need to work on my eating as well. I really would see more progress but we are not perfect. Everything will come together eventually. I am going to aim to do better for month 2 so I can get a maxium results.

Oh Shaun T. Pure Cardio & Abs; TurboFire 10&20

Monday, May 23, 2011

Week 4, Ok I'm freaking crazy! I feel beyond limp, but I feel good inside.
I HATE Pure Cardio, yes HATE!! But I got thru it. I mean seriously with were they thinking making this particular workout??? I need to sit in on these meetings with these fitness coaches.

In any case, I am loving the fact I can fully do push ups jacks. Seems like my upper body can support my weight. My energy levels continue to soar everyday, but I can't wait till recovery week.

I did feel like I could use more time on my abs so that us why I added Chalene's Ab workouts. I love them. I know what I am doing after Insanity.

Keep pushing play folks.

    Pure Cardio is still one of the best (as in, most effective) workouts I've done. Yeah, it's kind of tortuous, but you feel victorious when you're done. Good work getting through it!

Insanity has been a curse and a gift. I curse everyday at Shaun T. and his crazy workouts but its a great feeling walking sometimes crawling from my basemen to showers, knowing I am feeling better mentally and physcially. I love u Shaun T!

Week 4 here I come with a venegence.
& To Chalene Johsnon, TurboFire, 5 Day Inferno is something serious! I have to do your complete workout after my last 40+ days with Shaun T.!!!

Cardio Recovery & Fire 45 & Stretch 10

Friday, May 20, 2011

I am killing my workouts! I can't believe I even have the energy to do all of them! Insanity has definitely pushed me past my comfort zone. I have been a very active physical child and young"er" adult, I was a dancer. So I have worked out, danced, practice, kickboxing etc.. Working out w/o much focus was fun. When 30 hit, my body metabolism slowed down, and so did my level of energy, and activities. I am glad I have my motivation back to just enjoy being active.

I am seeing changes with my waist!! Slight change in weight area, but I am trying to work on my meal choices.

I feel great everyday; energy level has definitely increased and I just feel happier than usual.
I love this feeling! Exercising is addictive. Even on the days coming home from work and I feel like i just need a nap, I tell myself stuck it up and immerse myself in my 2 hr workouts!

I am happy to have re-started this get healthy journey. I know I was healthy before but I want to actually feel more comfortable in my clothes, especially having my baby girl! My hubby says I look great. But I tell him thanks but I dont' feel that way anymore. Staying focused is the key!

Keep Digging Y'all.

    Great attitude. It's funny once you get started, you can go and go. I'm riding this high as well. I'm enjoying this challenge. My body is seeing the difference. I'm feeling better. Not sluggish anymore. Always on a high because of the exercise. That is why I call exercising my medicine. This is some good stuff too.

Ride the wave girl. WORK it OUT!!
