    Friday

    Working on liking myself Unconditionally

    Three weeks of Insanity in the books. Glad today is rest day as insanity is brutal on the joints, but not standing still either. Little yoga for some deep stretching sounds just right. Diet has been on point all week and hoping the scale agrees. If it doesn't I can see and feel it so who cares.

    Cardio: 30min lite yoga (200)

    Strength: N/A

    Assessment: Chicken, Rice and Red skin potatoes

    Are you doing the whole series? Where it changes week to week? And assuming you're doing it streaming vs having the DVD collection?

    I'm going to TRY and do the whole series hahaha. I ironically have the DVDs from my high school days, when I attempted the series once before(didn't finish though). And yes the workouts go back and forth throughout the week and switch in month two.

    I know these aren't the typical workouts people post on here. But I'm not a very knowledgeable lifter, having started my fitness journey 1.5 yrs ago. What I do know about lifting comes from a routine I have down from a friend who was an amateur body builder, and went to school for two semester(before switching, no demand in our area) to be a personal trainer. Obviously that doesn't make him a genius as everyone tries/thinks they're a body builder too. However he was jacked, and if I could obtain even half of what he had I'd be happy. I was originally 285 lbs and flat out a fat *kitten* no way around it. I got engaged and decided to do something about it. He helped me shed 70lbs, and I couldn't have been happier. Fast forward to switching jobs and living in a truck, driving all day and I'm 240lbs again and just trying to trim down before we can hit the gym together again. For the record I dont have single piece of home equipment not even a dumbbell or set of bands lol. The gym in my town was much more cost effective and they had everything already.

    I tend to skip some days on here, but take solace in knowing I just forget during my days to post. I am getting my workouts in and staying on point. Also if it seems like I do this plyo everyday I don't, only twice a week. Just so happens that seems to be one of the days I always post. I do hate this day the most, maybe subconsciously trying to get motivated to do it??? Anywho 3 weeks in and down 5lbs!!!

    Cardio: Day 24 (plyo 425 cal)

    Strength: N/A till my gym reopens

    Assessment: spaghetti and turkey meatballs

    That's good. I personally learned from a bodybuilder and then 4 years later competed myself in local amatuer shows. Never won cause I was 4 inches taller than most of the guys I competed against and looked skinny next to them. But later went on to get my certification and I've been instructing ever since.
