So yesterday I began two new healthy challenges:
For workouts I began the 60 Day Insanity Program
And I began the Eat Clean Lifestyle
I say 'lifestyle' because this isn't a short term diet - it's a way I plan to eat from now on.
I went grocery shopping on Saturday and got everything I needed. On Sunday I cooked a large batch of Turkey meatballs from the online community for the Clean eating. I chopped veggies, and my fruit. I also ground my flax seed. I was all set to begin Monday.
So far the clean eating is going really, really well. I was bloated yesterday but I remember my body doing this to me years ago when I introduced flax seed. After a few days, and ensuring I get my water intake in, I no longer bloated. So thankfully I don't need to go anywhere for a few days! lol
Now on to Insanity....
Yesterday, Day 1, was the Fit Test
It was 25 mins...and wow. I really thought I was fit due to my Turbo Fire workout. But I guess some muscles just were not used. I was dripping with sweat and my legs felt like jelly!
Day 2: this morning...was Plyometric Cardio Circuit
So after only 10 minutes of this approximately 41 min workout I am huffing and sweating like mad. Then Shaun T goes "now that the warm-up is complete lets do a few minutes of stretching before getting into it." I seriously laughed out loud. hahaha
It was a crazy tough workout. I hate stopping during a workout but there were multiple times that I had to stop because my legs were completely jelly or my arms were jelly. While doing some of the moves where you are holding yourself in plank and jumping feet in, or to the side,etc, there was literally sweat pouring off me onto my mat. It was crazy.
But I love it. What I love is I now have workouts that I cannot complete easily at all. It's going to take work to get there and I am pumped to get there.
I also cannot wait to see what sort of results I get! The next 60 days are going to be awesome!
