That’s right! You heard me! INSANITY! Yes, I know I tried it before and failed miserably, but this time I’m here to complete it…all 63 Days of it! Nothing is going to stop me this time…well…nothing as long as I have access to my masseuse that is.
Monday was Day 1 – The Fit Test. I woke up at the ungodly hour of 5:30 am and jumped right into it with my husband by my side. We huffed and puffed through the first few moves and then I heard the dry heaving coming from his side of the room and he was out. I kept chugging along wishing this was all a nightmare and that I would wake up in my nice warm bed, but that never happened. Instead I was left in a puddle of sweat dragging my nutrient deprived body into the shower so I could face the day. I was shaky, felt like puking and light headed as could be. It all faded away before the first kid headed off to school on the bus and I was left with these numbers which I am proud of and the Lesson of the day: Don’t Workout at 5:30am EVER Again!
Day 2 – Plyometric Cardio Circuit: I am quite familiar with this routine since I started it two weeks ago as my introduction to Insanity. I knew what to expect, how hard I would have to push and how sore I would be the next day. What I did expect was that I would puke during the 3rd round of Level 1 drills. Lesson of the day: Wait about 2hours after eating before attempting an INSANITY workout!
Day 3 – Cardio Power and Resistance: Once again Shaun T kicked my ass like it has never been kicked before. I actually tried this workout last week and it is just brutal, especially when you are also finishing up ChaLEAN Extreme while doing INSANITY (I don’t recommend it – I am clearly insane). By the end of this workout I looked like I took a shower with my clothes on, my quads and glutes were on FIRE and I desperately needed my Results and Recovery drink! Lesson of the day: Beware of ceiling fans when doing jump training!
I ended Day 3 with a wonderful 2 hour massage and my body is very grateful. Tomorrow is a recovery workout but this is an INSANITY recovery day so I am sure I will be sweating and cursing up a storm.
Now, I don’t mean to scare anyone who has never tried Insanity, but I’m not one for sugar coating either. I believe that any results worth achieving come with hard work and dedication. Without those two things, success will not be the end result with this particular program. It takes a lot of determination to puke and then go right back into the workout!
Quickly, I’d like to give a big thank you to my #insanecrew! You guys keep me motivated and I’ll need you all for the next 60 days! We will push each other to the next level and wear those t-shirts with pride at the end of this crazy ride.
Here’s to 60 more days of puke, sweat and tears! Dig Deep!
