Insanity Day 10 & 11

Day 10 & 11 – completed!  And what a workout it was…I literally workout myself right out of my sneakers!  I busted the inside & outside of each sneaker along the seams, on BOTH shoes!  I think Shaun T. would be proud 🙂

Although I am a bit sad that I can’t workout again until next weekend (1 – because I’m on a roll, and 2-because it’s so hard to get back into it when you take more than a few days off between workouts), I guess it is a good thing so I can go find myself a new pair of shoes! As my coach said, I guess I have made it to the “workout addiction” stage.  Hooray!

 

Insanity Day 9

Although still sick, probably too sick to workout, I did anyways.  I keep looking at the square on my workout calendar that read “Pure Cardio” and dreading it so I thought I’d suck it up and get it over with.  So glad I did.  At least I have three more workouts in-between this Pure Cardio and the next one which is oh-so-wonderfully paired with a SECOND DVD called Cardio Abs.  So, if I don’t pass out, cry, puke, or die from the first ridiculous strenuous workout, then there’s a SECOND one to finish me off!  Ahhh…can’t wait! 😉

Insanity Day 8

Woke up today as Mrs. Snuffleupagus!  Full on cold…but only in my head, so I dared to workout and actually succeeded!

I did the ‘Cardio Power & Resistance’ workout again and had that weird ending that I did after my first full workout where I just cried uncontrollably during the last minute of the cool down.  I don’t know what is causing me to cry – whether it’s out of pure exhaustion or pure happiness  – either way, the bottom line is I got to cross another workout as COMPLETED!  Hell yeah!  😉

 

 

 

Insanity Day 6 & 7

Another workout done (Day 7 is for ‘rest’)!  What’s better than that, you ask?  That I completed week ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Even though there are 8 weeks left to go (48 days of workouts with a total of 58 more workouts), it feels REALLY good to have one week under my belt.  I am still struggling through all the workouts, as I would think most newbies would be, but I’m completing them with everything I have and that is all I can do.

Looking forward to seeing if I can walk and move easily tomorrow.  (Well maybe not easily, but easier than in the past).  If I’m not as stiff as I have been, I’d say I might be getting a little better at this crazy workout thing.  😉  I’ll keep you updated!

This is so not fair :(

All my friends from past and present are seeing me in the new eDiets commercial, except for me!  Ugh…so frustrating!!!

This is what I’ve learned so far…I may be wearing a kick-ass blue dress, but definitely have 2 shots in a bikini!  Yay!  I can’t believe I made it to the small screen in a bikini…that in itself is such an accomplishment for me.  Just wish I could see it for myself!!!

I’ve looked all over the internet and can’t seem to find it, so I guess they really are just playing it in “select” markets.  So far it’s somewhere in Virginia, Cummings, GA, and Tallahassee, FL.

So I kindly ask of you, dear friends and followers, if any of you should happen to catch it on your DVR or see it online…please, please, please send me a copy!  I worked so hard to get where I am now and really want to see the results from any other place than my bathroom mirror.   I’ve even lost 10 more pounds since the commercial!  I’m sure that my Insanity workout will most likely put some of those pounds back on, but at least they’ll be nice lean & tone pounds.  (Those are the best kind) 😉

Thanks and if I happen to find it first, I’ll definitely post it so y’all can see too! 🙂

Insanity Day 5

To quote Shaun T, “This Shit is Bananas!” 

OH….. MY….. GOD!  Pure Cardio was pure hell.

Every other workout so far in the insanity series has been 3 minutes at high intensity with a 30 second break, continuous for about 30 minutes (and a 5 minute warmup/cool down).  But not Pure Cardio.  No…that would be too easy.  Pure Cardio is nothing but cardio for THIRTY EIGHT MINUTES (give or take 5 minutes for a slight warmup/cool down), with NO breaks!  I hated this workout, but the best part was seeing all the people behind Shaun T. curl up in child’s pose or laid out like a pancake on the floor.  Even Shaun T., himself, couldn’t keep up.  He asked himself, out loud,  why he did this to himself…and he said, “Because I like to look good”…lol.  At least he’s honest!

So, I made it through, barely, and then took my victory marker and crossed today’s hellacious workout off the calendar.   Success…another workout down!

So, as I drank my protein shake, holding up the wall and patting myself on the back, I glanced over the rest of the schedule and saw Pure Cardio AGAIN in only THREE more workouts and then AGAIN WITH an additional DVD called Cardio Abs FOUR days later!  OMG!  It’s only just begun.

OK, breathe…wooo-saaaah.  One day at a time, right?!

…I think I need a drink!  😉

Insanity Day 4

Today’s workout was Cardio Recovery.  Just the name alone sounds like a refreshing break.  This DVD really focuses on stretching your hamstrings, quads, core, and hip flexors while working on your balance.  While it sounds easy enough, it felt great up until the last 8 minutes or so.  In the end, my stretching turned out to be muscles quivering because they were so weak they couldn’t hold the position anymore.  Shaun T. does say that form is the most important factor…so I took a break, re-grouped, corrected my form and held on for as long as humanly possibly. By the time my muscles couldn’t go anymore…we were done! 🙂

It really is a great DVD…I wish it was set up to use after every intense workout because I can already feel the difference 2 hours later.  But alas, I will have to look forward to it only once/week.

Next workout = Pure Cardio (so happy tomorrow is Easter Sunday, so I can at least have another day to recuperate)!

Til next time…
