    I Finally Have A Plan!!!

    Working on liking myself Unconditionally

    Since I dont believe the gyms here in Michigan to be opening up within the next month, I finally have a plan for life after insanity. The wife enjoys at home workouts more than a gym so we are going to get BeachBody on Demand. My plan is to continue with Insanity Max 30(minutes) till I have achieved my desired aesthetics. However I am considering increasing my caloric intake and getting a good set of bands and starting to use them for resistance training. Same gym regimen just with bands. Now I have considered doing these at the same time if I like where I am at before I finish Max 30( I have a thing about quitting, but I'm starting to look scrawny too). Obviously really eating enough will be a priority at that point. But a question for you guys too. I dont have bands, can anyone point me in the direction of a good COMPLETE at home set? Price not an issue.

    Cardio: Day 59 of 63 (Max Interval 550 cal)

    Strength: N/A till my gym reopens

    Assessment: Spaghetti

    Beach Body has a lot of great workouts. Just don't start buying their shakes. I haven't done full segments of their workouts (I mostly looked them over for my clients), but P90X seemed to be a good series.

    I'm slipping

    Working on liking myself Unconditionally

    Easy workout today so that's nice as I think my shoes are getting to broke down and not providing enough cushion. I'm doing these HIIT workouts on a wood floor and my left ankle is taking notice. I'm also starting to slip in my diet, really going to have to make a concentrated effort to rope it in. I'm earing decent as far as my macros but I'm getting lax with amount of calories I'm eating. 1,900 is what I shoot for, and through general sloppiness in logging and workouts that normally leads to 2lbs a week. Which is why I set it to 1900, I know myself, and I do it for the same reason people set their clocks fast. If I'm really diligent its 2.5 to 3lbs which I know is too fast but that's only when I'm extremely busy. I would say on any given normal day I'm at 2000-2100cals. when the day is over. However, lately that's just not enough and I swear I could eat a horse some nights. But I'm not willing to go up as my current plan is 2lbs a week right on schedule, and I easily still have weight to lose. For the record I'm 6'3.5, 230lbs and 24yrs young. Body fat I'd say is still mid to high 20's

    Cardio: Day 60 of 63 (Cardio Balance 400 cal)

    Hi there! I found your group and would love to participate since I'm having the hardest time with staying active under quarantine. I really don't like working from home and the weather has been unpredictable in NY so I don't walk consistently. But I signed up for BeachBody and started Insanity. I will be posting in here to help with my consistency. :)

    Cardio: 70 Mins Insanity (Fit Test & Day 1)
    Strength: None
    Assessment: This is bad but I do have left over spaghetti that I am going to finish :( Tomorrow will be better.

    Today is my final day of Insanity and I'll tell you was trying but rewarding. It was hands down the hardest thing I have ever done. But I find this page very helpful, and I know you will too.
