Insanity: Day 21

So, I've missed a couple days. Not as many days as I missed blogging about it, but nonetheless......

I'm really starting to hate Insanity! Yesterday was Pure Cardio and I hated every minute of it! I'm starting to hate Shaun T, even if he is gorgeous.....Stupid mountain climbers, I hate them sooo much. (mountain climbers are on of the ridiculous exercises that he makes me do) He always says "I'm not trying to hurt you. I'm just trying to make you better" I don't believe him. I think he hates me as much as I hate him and he's trying to destroy me by crushing my soul. I want to quit, I really do. I miss going to the gym. I used to look forward to going to the gym, now I dread my Insanity workout. All day long, I put it off. And then I finally drag my butt to the dvd and do my stupid workout. Am I going to stop? Probably not. I was down 2 pounds at the beginning of the week. I'm back up those same 2 pounds though......How discouraging is that???

I'm really terrified about month 2. I thought that by this point the workout would be getting easier, but alas, they are not.

Well, that was yesterday. Today is a new day. Time to go do my Insanity.....

Insanity: Day 16

Day 16.......Plyometric cardio circuit.

Back to the grind, although honestly I think that's putting it lightly.

I was tired today. Too many late nights (catching up on Dexter), not enough food before the workout. There are about hundred things that will make an Insanity workout harder to get through. I don't know of anything to make them easier though.

Can I just say I hate mountain climbers? I hate mountain climbers. Shaun T is a hard person to dislike, but every time he says "mountain climbers" I want to throw something at him.

No weight loss to date, but as per last post, I've been slacking a bit. I do have guns though. Yep, I totally just said guns. I've never had biceps before. It shows in my workouts. I'm getting through more and more push-ups, suicide jumps, level 1's awesome!

My legs have more shape than they've ever had. No amount of running and squats and leg presses at the gym brought these kind of results. The program works! Okay, I'll stop now that I sound like an infomercial.

Insanity Day: 15

So....... I'm ashamed. Very Ashamed. I've been a bad Insanity devotee. It's been crazy busy and I've done all the workouts, but it took me 2 weeks to get through week 2. :(

I hate missing the workouts. I really committed myself to the program, and wanted to stick to the schedule. I'm not a quitter.

I'm back on track now. I have a new resolve, but I'm also realistic, May is a super busy month. I'm going to have to find a way to make sure I'm not skipping workouts.

Today was my second fit test. I was nervous, especially because I had been off track. I did well though. There was definite progress.

Here are the results:

Switch kicks: wk 1- 39 wk 3-54

Power jacks: wk 1-48 wk 3-60

Power knees: wk 1-76 wk 3-83

Power jumps: wk 1-25 wk 3-32

Globe jumps: wk 1-8 wk 3-12

Suicide jumps: wk 1-12 wk 3-13

Push-up jacks: wk 1-10 wk 3-18

Low plank oblique: wk 1-45 wk 3-62

There it is. I'm not posting any before and after photos until I'm thrilled with the after's but I'm taking the pics every 2 weeks so that at the end I can see the changes!
