Well, today’s workout was Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs. I used the X-box One’s fitness app for the Pure Cardio to see if I could beat my old score… which I did! I actually got a 5 star rating on it! First time ever for that specific workout! So, that’s 5 stars for two workouts this week! AHH! Yay for non-scale victory!
Day 16 of Insanity for me was the Plyometric Cardio Circuit. I didn’t workout in the morning like I usually do, but I had seemed to have more energy in the afternoon when I did this workout. I also got a 5 star rating on the X-box One’s Fitness app. Yay for non-scale victories! I have only ever gotten 4 stars on any of the Insanity workouts featured on the app. I also posted a comparison picture on my instagram as well as my Faecbook to help me keep going in my journey. 70 lb difference. Feeling more confident each day. 🙂
Whoa… I am a little behind in my posts here! Ahh! Need to stop letting that happen. I have been doing Insanity every day according to my calendar. So… no worries there! Anyway, Monday was Day 15 of Insanity. I did the Fit Test as the calendar said. Here are my results as well as my first day results to compare:
Switch Kicks – 89 (started at 80)
Power Jacks – 47 (started at 43)
Power Knees – 101 (started at 85)
Power Jumps – 31 (started at 25)
Globe Jumps – 10 (started at 8)
Suicide Jumps – 15 (started at 10)
Pushup Jacks – 17 (started at 14)
Low Plank Obliques – 65 (started at 50)
So, making progress. I’ve only lost 1 lb since starting, but I am obviously getting stronger cardio wise. I will measure myself at the end of next week and see. I try not to weigh myself too much, so the next time I will do that will be at the end of next week also.
Today was day 11 of the Insanity program. I was very thankful today was Cardio Recovery. It felt nice to stretch. I had a little whiney meow-y cat buddy though. Princess decided she wanted my attention during the entire workout and kept running in and out between my legs. Then as I was doing the leg lifts, she would swat at my feet. Silly cat.
Meant to post earlier, but I got my workout done earlier than I had anticipated. Pretty nice because it gave me more time to do what I wanted later. Today’s workout was Cardio Power & Resistance. Still had to take a few breaks during the v-pushups and the moving pushups. Even so, I am getting stronger though. I think anyway. I did the workout using the X-box One’s fitness app again and I was able to beat the challenges. I also beat my own average score.
Well, this time for the Plyometric Cardio Circuit I utilized X-box One’s fitness app. I find that it actually helps me out a lot. It pushes me to keep going and work harder. I love the challenges that randomly pop up during the workout and you either go up against your old scores or against other women (or men if you’re a dude) in your age range. I find that I push myself really hard during these challenges, sometimes so much that I have to take a wee break to catch my breath after. Anyway, felt like throwing up again in today’s workout, but kept pushing through!
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.
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!
