Insanity Day 40

Insanity Workout: Max Interval Circuit

Happy Spring!  It was a beautiful, sunny day in the Chicago Area.  Personally, I can’t think of a better way to spend a day like today by being outside.  I played tennis for the first time in probably a couple years with one of the girls I played with on the tennis team during my Freshman year in college.  I was pretty rusty but I quickly found my swings.  After warming up for a while, we played out a set.  Let’s just say I didn’t do too well and she won lol.  My swings were off and I miss-hit the ball a  lot of times.  Either way, it was great to be back on the court playing the sport I love.  I was curious on how many calories I burned so I did a little research and it was close to 1000 calories.  I had no idea that playing tennis burned so many calories.  Like I mentioned in my post the other night, I used to play at least 4 hours a day and 5 days a week.  However, I would eat very poorly and I really did not lose a lot of weight.  I plan on playing on a regular basis and I’ll look into taking classes at the club I used to play at or play at my school with the night classes.

I did Max Interval Circuit earlier tonight.  I wanted to give myself some time after I played tennis to workout.  This was the third time I had done this workout and I pushed myself harder and I felt like I improved.  I have been a little stressed out over a couple of things during the past few days.  I have a lot of big goals I have set for myself and I’m going to keep working hard to accomplish each one and to get where I want to be in life.  I need to re-focus a bit and maybe that will help take the stress off more.  I think it helped contribute to me pushing harder and I feel a lot better when I finished.

I weighed myself this morning and I lost another pound.  I have lost 15 pounds since 2/6/12.  I’m getting closer and closer to the lowest weight I was ever at in the past 10 years.  I’m sure some of you are wondering what I’m at right now but I won’t be sharing that information until I get to my goal weight.  Maybe 16 pounds when I weigh tomorrow?  I have a good feeling : )
