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!

Insanity Day 16
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. 🙂
Insanity Day 12
Today’s workout was Cardio Power and Resistance. I think this workout is my least favorite out of everything so far. I think it’s because I feel like I suck at the log jumps in the warmup. Then, I have to do the moving pushups on my knees because my upper body is still lacking. I feel hungry all the time too it seems. Anyway, looking forward to Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs tomorrow!
Insanity Day 11
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.
Insanity Day 10
Today was day 10 of Insanity. I was NOT feeling it at all this morning. Took me forever to get up. But, after I got on all my workout clothes and set up the x-box… I was determined to hit play. I love the drill challenges that the fitness app gives you on the x-box. They ALWAYS push me to either beat my previous scores or scores of other women my age. Today, I beat them all! I had to take a few small breaks doing the in-and-out abs and ski abs. I was actually proud of myself that I only needed one break during the third exercise of level 1 drills. I still do girly pushups though. I am getting stronger so next time I do the level 1 drills, I will do some on my toes. I was never good at pushups, but I am working on it!
Insanity Day 9
Insanity Day 8
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.
Insanity Day 5
Today I completed Day 5 of the Insanity program. Oh boy, I was sweating all over the place. Today’s workout was Pure Cardio. It definitely was a lot of cardio. There were times where I did have to take a wee break to drink some water and to catch my breath a little. Anyway, I still pushed myself through some of the harder exercises even when I thought I couldn’t go any longer. Those pushup jacks at the end were killer! I also did the entire workout on X-box One’s fitness app. I beat the score for women in my age range! Woo!
Insanity Day 4
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!
NO More EXCUSES!
Okay… the past couple months I have just made a ton of excuses when it came to me working out and eating right. I would do good for a little while, then stumble again. I would workout most days though, but then I would eat like crap and basically cancel out what I was trying to do.
So, now… I am determined more than ever to get my fitness and eating habits under control. I am determined to start and finish the Insanity program. I actually started it yesterday and started eating better as well. I really need to keep posting here, Instagram, and maybe Facebook. I feel that doing that helps me hold myself accountable.
No more excuses. I am STICKING to this. I did get a new job that starts next month, but I won’t let that stop me either.
