Insanity - Day 12
I think today's workout is the hardest Insanity workout for the first month. Cardio Power & Resistance is a tough workout - and I'm surprised at how far I've come.
I asked a neighbor friend to join me in working out. She showed up today... Read more
Insanity - Day 11
Cardio Recovery was well worth the wait. Even though, as I've mentioned, it's definitely not a rest day, it's so nice to give my body a rest from all the jumping and high impact. I still sweat this morning, but that could be due to the heat. ... Read more
Insanity - Days 9 & 10
OK, two big days - Pure Cardio and Plyometric Cardio Circuit - complete. Both of these really make me work up a sweat. I know I'm getting stronger (as I can do more each time), and this is what keeps me going. I have been keeping track of my ... Read more
Insanity - Day 8
First day of the second week. Today was Cardio Power & Resistance (although it had a lot of plyo exercises included). I'm happy that this second time around it's so much more doable. I was able to complete everything today. The power jumps a... Read more
Insanity - Day 6 (and 7)
I didn't write yesterday because I was a bit busy, but I am really excited that Week One in done! Starting over again was a bit hard (mainly because I was hoping after the first round I would have lost all the weight magically, and I didn't!), ... Read more
Insanity - Day 5
I had a great workout this morning. Pure Cardio is tough because not only aren't there lots of breaks, the exercises are mixed up and don't really repeat like the others. It's a good all-around 30 minute cardio workout. It could certainly be ... Read more
Insanity - Day 4
OK, I know I shouldn't constantly be writing about Insanity, but I think this will be good for me to keep to my commitment. Today's workout was Cardio Recovery, and I guess it was recovery from cardio - just not everything else! Great yoga str... Read more
Insanity - Day 3
OK, Day 3 done. It went much better than yesterday's fiasco. Someone else brought the computer to play the dvd, and it worked fine. We had five people working out together, and what a difference that makes! It's so much easier to workout wit... Read more
Insanity - Day 2
OK, the day didn't start off so great. I was going to have some friends come and join me in the park to do Insanity, but my computer wouldn't play the disc. They ended up leaving, and I had to do the workout by myself in my apartment. Of cour... Read more
Insanity Round Two - Began Today
Today I started the second round of Insanity. I still stink at the Fit Test, but I have improved a lot since the first round. I feel a lot stronger for sure. The first time I did this test, I was thinking, "what did I get myself into?" I'm r... Read more
Finished Round One - Starting Round Two!
I really can't believe I finished Round One of Insanity!! I lost a total of 25 pounds during the 60 days. Amazing!! I am starting Round Two tomorrow, and I can't wait. I feel so much more strong and capable that I'm hoping that this program ... Read more
Insanity - Ready for the next 4 weeks
I just wanted to say that I can't believe that I already have finished five weeks of Insanity and am ready to start the last four weeks of max cardio. The program seems so intimidating when you see the infomercial, I didn't think I'd be able to... Read more
Forgot Food Today - Ahh!
I left for work this morning in a rush and forgot to take any food with me to eat. This means I had to go all day without eating anything until afterI got back home. I did not pick up any fast food on the way home, which I'm happy for, but I c... Read more
Day 12 - No Junk Food Yet!
So, this is my 12th day, and I haven't had any junk food in all that time. For many people, this may not be a big thing, but for me, it's huge. I work a lot and tend to get something quick on my ride home. What I did these past 12 days is sto... Read more
I Notice Exercise Change!
I have made a small goal to exercise at least 10 minutes per day. This is only my 9th day and I already notice a change in me! I seem to be able to make time for the exercise (a big excuse I had) even when I have a lot of work to do. I am als... Read more
