Yesterday was Plyo day and today was Max recovery - both felt wonderful! Yesterday I pushed myself really hard - I think it was the best workout I've done all of Insanity. I did more jumping than ever, able to keep up better than ever, and able to push myself instead of babying out. Today during max recovery I had to take extra breaks, but it was legit - my arms were giving out on me during slow push ups, so rather than feeling disappointed I felt proud of how hard I worked my arms. There is a definite difference in my workouts when I do a weekend workout vs a weekday workout - when I do a weekday workout I foll out of bed and push play and start the workout before I'm fully awake. On the weekend I'm typically up and moving around for a little first, and I have a clearer head and I'm more focused on pushing myself. I thought about changing my workouts to after work, but I really think that it wouldn't be good because my after work nights at any time are able to be changed and I won't get my workout in. I may be asked to babysit the bebe's or do something for my Aunt or SOMETHING, and then miss a workout. Once I start T25, much shorter in time, I'll be able to get up early and have some time awake before the workouts and I'll see how much that helps.
Tomorrow is Cardio and then Core Balance, both of which I am looking forward to, and then I have a rest day and it's time for a fit test again. I skipped it last time because I didn't prepare enough for it, but this time I'll be prepared. I'm going to do the measurements and fit test in the morning before work, and then I'll do the actual workout when I get out of work. I can't believe it's the last fit test until the very last day of the program. So far it's just flown by! Don't get me wrong, I feel like I've worked hard, but I can't believe that in just 2 1/2 weeks I'll be done Insanity, and then I have 2 1/2 weeks until I start T25. I'm thinking that during that 2 1/2 week gap I'll follow a Chalean extreme program and jogging until my 5K on November 2nd, and then Chalean and Insanity for the next week until I come back from my birthday trip and start T25. I just found out that as of right now all 3 bebe's are coming on my birthday weekend!!! So excited! They are such a hoot to have around!
I measured myself yesterday to see what was going on, and my numbers are all over the place. I have such a difficult time measuring myself - remembering where I measured myself previously, not holding the measuring tape too tightly, etc, etc. I don't think measuring myself is a very good tracker for me either, just like the scale. I refuse to be measured by someone else - guess I'll just be using my workouts and clothing as a tracker, which I'm ok with because 1) It's not a race, progress is progress, as long as I'm being healthy I'm happy and 2) It's a lifestyle, so I won't be ruled by measurements and scales, just by personal victories.
Hope you all had a Sparktastic weekend!!
