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 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!  😉

The #1 Reason You Aren’t Losing WeightHealth

The #1 Reason You Aren’t Losing Weight | Yahoo! Health.

I found this article today on Yahoo! Health – pretty cool!

I got home soooo late from work since I had to cover for an employee that called out and just got home after my 1.5 hr drive home and quick dash into Publix.  So, Insanity is off the table tonight, but it’s back on tomorrow.  I get off at 3:30pm and should be ready to go by 5pm – finishing just in time to pick up my little one!

‘Pure Cardio’ here I come!
