Insanity Day 18

Insanity Workout: Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs

I had a feeling that I would have a productive day today.  I had a lot of energy and I was like a machine.  I spent most of my day in the kitchen preparing my meals for today and some for tomorrow along with running some errands.  I am not that good at cooking but I try my best lol.  I came across a website while I was browsing Pinterest a couple weeks ago called Skinnytaste (  It features low fat, family-friendly, and healthy recipes.  I have been trying to find a recipe for healthy chilli.  I try to stay away from anything processed and soup in a can in general has a lot of sodium.  I found a recipe called Crock Pot 3 Bean Turkey Chilli.  It takes about 6-8 hours in a Crock Pot and I’ll give it a taste tomorrow.  I will post a little about the recipe along with the link to it in a separate post for those who might be interested in trying it too.

Today was Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs.  Once again I decided to see how it was like if I did Cardio Abs first and then Pure Cardio.  I ate dinner a little later than I had planned which made tonight another late workout.  I finished literally right before midnight.  I’ve been pushing myself harder and harder each day.  For the past couple of days, I noticed a small “pain” on the side of my abdomen.  I used to experience this every time I ran back when I was in grade school.  It’s not really pain, more like a very minor strain.  I had to stop and shake it off a couple of times throughout my workouts but I kept on going.

Hello Readers!

Hello everyone!  I just wanted to take the time out to welcome all of my readers, especially new readers, and say a big thank you for checking out my blog.  I really appreciate all of the support I have received so far on my weight loss journey.  Once again, I hope my efforts are able to not only keep me motivated and on track but to also inspire others to do the same.  If you are new to my blog, I post one update after every workout/at the end of each day.  Along with each update, I include one motivational quote that sort of ties with how my day went.  Every Tuesday I post a song that motivates me and pumps me up.  I plan on adding more to my blog including new healthy recipes I try out and health and fitness articles I find helpful and interesting.

I created a Facebook Fan Page for this website as well.  Please follow the page by clicking “Like” in the box located in the right side of the page.

I know a few of you have been directed to my website via Pinterest because of the quote I created and pinned.  I’m very excited to share this with everyone.  This quote was first written in my “Insanity Day 13” post at
