Insanity - Day 41
Max Interval Plyo - Done! Wow, today's workout was hard. I started early because I wanted to get in my big master plan for the day. I had to work this weekend and, to be honest, work has been super stressful and non-stop. I worked yesterday ... Read more
Insanity - Day 40
Max Interval Circuit - Done!
Today a group of friends (7) who did the first round of Insanity with me showed up, and we had an Insanity reunion of sorts. It made this workout go faster and seem a bit more fun. I think I appreciate exercis... Read more

Max Recovery...nice! Even though this recovery is a little bit tough, it really felt good this morning! I've been a bit sore this week with the Max exercises starting back up, so the stretching and strength exercises felt good!!! It also help... Read more
What's held me back? What can I work on?
For my current challenge, I've been asked to write five things that may have held me back from reaching my goals. It's funny how I can intellectually know what I've done wrong, but it's a whole other thing to act and correct those wrongs.

Max Cardio Conditioning - Whew! Did I honestly think this was an easy workout??? For some reason, in my mind I had remembered this workout as an easy workout. Ha, ha! Did I get a rude awakening this morning!! Maybe I'm working harder or may... Read more
Insanity - Day 37
Max Interval Plyo - Done. Last time around, I found this workout the hardest of the whole program. Today I remembered why. Whew! It's not so much the pushups (and pushups and pushups), but it's the jumping I.E. plyometrics. Yikes! The jump... Read more

Recovery Week - Day 5 - Done. My computer stopped playing the workout right after the warmup, but because I've done this one so many times, I was able to continue and do the whole workout by memory. I timed myself and was able to do the whole ... Read more
Insanity - Day 32 (Cheat Day??)
Recovery Week, Day 4 - Done. I'm so bored of this workout now (and it's so quick and gentle) that I ended up taking a spin class this evening too. I just had to do something as I had too much pent up energy. Now I'm looking forward to the sec... Read more

Recovery Day Three...still a really nice workout.
