Well, today was day 4 of the Beachbody program Insanity. The workout for today was Cardio Recovery. Now, don’t let that name fool you! It’s been so long since I have done it and I had forgotten that it still actually makes you sweat. I needed a good stretch today and it definitely delivered that. My inner thighs, calves, and shoulders are sore. I love that feeling because I know that this program is working! I hope it gets me over the plateau that I have hit. I think once I finally start this new job in about two weeks I may invest in Shakeology again. It definitely made my nails and hair healthier. It was quite tasty too! We will see what happens int he future. 🙂 Looking forward to tomorrow’s workout!
Well, today I woke up feeling ever-so-sluggish, but after I ate a little bit of breakfast I got enough energy to start day 3 of Insanity. It was definitely a bit harder than the workout yesterday. I sweat a lot and did take a few breaks here and there (again, with a pushup move!), but that’s okay! I also felt like throwing up during the beginning. I guess I was really pushing myself. I also used my X-box One’s fitness app to do today’s workout. Luckily, the app has a few of Insanity’s workouts on there. Today I did Power Cardio and Resistance. I like using the fitness app on the X-box One because challenges pop up from time to time and you try and beat other women’s scores that are in your age range. I did beat a few of the challenges, but some I did not. I am sure with time and completing more and more of these workouts I will be able to beat all of the challenges one day! Super stoked to do that.
Day 2 of Insanity completed. Today’s workout was Plyometric Cardio Circuit. I had to take a little break during the level 1 drills, ski abs, and in-and-out abs. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to go the full time. My arms are just a bit weaker than I’d like them to be, but I am working on it!
Okay. New day. Picking up where I left off in my fitness journey. Not necessarily starting over, but getting over a bump in the road. I am really determined to finish the Insanity program this time. The first time I tried I ended up stopping because of some mysterious pain in my lower abdomen. Anyway, took measurements and my weight today. Need to do before pictures. I did the Fit Test of Insanity.
Here are my stats for day one’s Fit Test:
Switch Kicks – 80
Power Jacks – 43
Power Knees – 85
Power Jumps– 25
Globe Jumps – 8
Suicide Jumps – 10
Pushup Jacks – 14
Low Plank Obliques – 50
Can’t wait to see how much more I can do later. I am sticking to this!
