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 9

Whoops, forgot to post my day 0f Insanity yesterday. I DID do it! No worries there! I have been super tired the past couple days, but I have been pushing through my workouts. Day 9’s workout was Pure Cardio. Beat my score on the X-box One fitness app too.

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.

Day 8

Pineapple Whip or “Ice Cream”

After looking at several recipes for pineapple whip or “ice cream” I came across one in particular that seemed fairly easy to do. It turned out pretty darn good. Here’s the recipe:

 

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups frozen pineapple pieces

1/4 cup milk of choice (I used coconut milk)

2 tbsp sugar, stevia, or sugar substitute

1/16 tsp salt

Scant 1 tbsp lemon juice

DIRECTIONS:

Pretty simple…. blend until smooth.

 

We did have to add some skim milk to the mixture due to the blender being fairly old.  It needed a little help to mix.

Insanity Day 6

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!

 

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!
