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 15
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.
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 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!
Insanity Day 3
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.
