    Small Victory!!!!!

    Working on liking myself Unconditionally

    Month 1 of insanity in the books. The inner pride I have right now is off the charts. Insanity is a tough program and I've tried on more than one occasion to complete it and never have. This time I'm more physically ready for challenge, and it's my time! A full week of slower paced recovery workouts will be nice too. Marking this occasion with a bit of a splurge on dinner (within moderation of course)

    Cardio: Day 27 (Plyo 450 cal)

    Strength: N/A till my gym reopens

    Assessment: Chili Cheese Fries

    Happy TGIF!!! Lol, the upper floors are much more challenging because on a ladder I don't have the ability to maneuver some angles. So I'm spending more time trying just not to fall than painting.

    Working on liking myself Unconditionally

    This week was my Recovery Week, and the workout was actually easy for me this time around. I havent kept up on my posting but the week was so easy I didn't really need the accountability to help me press play everyday. I suspect that will be changing as I will be starting Month 2 tomorrow! I'm actually nlmore excited than nervous. I've made it to this point before in my previous attempts, but found month 2 so challenging that I couldn't physically and mentally conquer it. This is the best shape I've been since my high school days, which is just as sad as it is true, and I will finally achieve the body I've been working towards this year.

    Cardio: Day 35 ( Fit Test 275 cal)

    Strength: N/A till my gym reopens

    Assessment: Chicken fajitas

    Keep grinding! You can always reassess after you've completed your next challenge.

    Today will be the 3rd day of month 2 for me, Day 38, Max Cardio Conditioning. The first two days were rough. The two biggest differences to me are the length obviously, and the strength required. For the length, 60mins is just a long time to go wide open, and I get so tired I get a sense of time just dragging on which in turns just wears on me mentally. But the strength required is the biggest change, to me at least. After month one I am more than conditioned cardio wise to keep chugging through month 2, but shaun t stepped up the upper body attention. Yesterday was max plyo and he has you attempting like a 100 pushups or more plus other exercises in high plank, and so forth also taxing the upper body. However, what doesn't kill is suppose to make you stronger, or so they say.

    Cardio: Day 38 ( Max Cardio 600+ cal.)

    Strength: N/A till my gym reopens

    Assessment: hotdogs over a bonfire

    Hey gang,

    Happy Monday! FINALLY got all the trim done! It was a lot more challenging than I thought, but should save me money when I get the rest of the house painted.

    Cardio: run/jog- 30 minutes (150 calories)

    Strength: shoulders- front shoulder raise, face pulls, side laterals, shrugs. 4x12,10,8,6

    Assessment: Taco Bell for dinner. I haven't had any Taco Bell in over 2 months.

    60 minutes of HIIT is much different than 60 minutes in the gym lifting and finishing with 15-20min of easy cardio. I don't want to sound lazy, but I'm looking ahead to greener pastures and easier days again lol

    Cardio: Day 39 ( Max Recovey 400cal.)

    Strength N/A till my gym reopens

    Assessment: Turkey Meatballs

    Yeah, I taught a kickboxing class on bags and we did 1 minute of exercise and then a 30 second rest, then continued till the hour was up. People would crawl out when we were done. And they PAID extra to do that class.
