That is how I felt when I was doing Insanity's fitness test tonight. Here are my results:
Switch Kicks 60 (felt great to do that many)
Power Jacks 22 (still impressed)
Power Knees 69 (still going strong)
Power Jumps 10 (A KILLER!!)
Globe Jumps 4 (just glad I didn't hit my head on furniture)
Suicide Jumps (Burpees) 4 (I can't jump doing these because it hurts my back.)
Push Up Jacks 3 (I am weak.)
Spider Man Plank 10 (Happy to be able to do them)
I have to say I never do real push ups. I had to with the Push up Jacks and when I tried to jump my feet out I literally fell on my face. My son laughed but told me to get back up and just do them without the jump. That is how I was able to do 3.
Now my goal for the second week of BLC19.
I really think I am insane. I am going to do Insanity for the next 6 days. My son told me that you do it for 6 days and then rest on the 7 day. I will modify anything I can. I want to do this because I feel that I am getting into a rut with my exercise.
My reward for doing Insanity:
I will buy myself a book on healthy cooking or physical activity.
My fear of hurting myself is my biggest barrier. The next barrier is making time for this exercise.
Modify anything that I can. Also if my son is home have him help me on my form. I will bring a change of clothes with me to work so I don't have a reason not to be ready when I get home after work.
Now I am sure you all think I am insane. I have been wanting to try Insanity for awhile and I think this is the perfect time for me to try it.
I am thankful for:
1. My son being able to laugh at me and be helpful at the same time.
2. Having friends that encourage me.
Have a blessed day/evening.
