Insanity Workout: Fit Test #2/Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs
I finally did my second Fit Test for this round on Insanity. They were definitely what I did not expect. I did less during my last test and I did less than that during this test. I went as hard and as fast as I could too. I definitely went all our during my fourth Fit Test last month which is what I’m supposed to do with each test. On the bright side, it just means I need to work harder so I can improve next time. There is always room for improvement and I know I will improve in my next test. I need to find more energy in myself to push through these workouts and as of late, I haven’t been feeling the energy.
With that being said, I started the Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse today. Or at least I tried to do the cleanse. I strictly followed the instructions until dinner. Having Shakeology during breakfast was no problem at all because I’m used to having it for breakfast lately. When it came to lunch, I felt like I was having withdrawals. I have been eating sort of poorly over the past two weeks or so and I had gotten used to it. I also want to note that I still have not have any pop or fast food. I just made a few bad choices when I went out to eat. I had Shakeology for lunch and decided to go to Whole Foods to make a nice salad for dinner. At dinner I looked up more info on the cleanse and read that it should only be done during a recovery week and not during something like Insanity since you’ll have less energy. Oops! I did have the energy but I was not getting enough calories.
After seeing everyone walk out with a whole pizza because they have a special on Wednesdays, I decided to order my own pizza. Eddie, my coach/business partner, introduced me to their pizza. I ordered a veggie pizza with vegan cheese and had a slice. I only eat one slice a day (they cut it in big slices) and it will cover one of my meals a day for the next week. I felt so much better after that. If anyone is ever thinking about doing the cleanse, I will include more info on my page by next week. However I highly recommend that you do it when you’re not training hard or working out to a program like Insanity. I plan on trying out the cleanse again sometime in the future.
I ended up not going to Fit Club tonight so I did my scheduled workout late tonight. Today’s workout was Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs. I felt great after my workout. I was feeling a bit emotional today for some reason and that workout made me feel so much better. You know what they say, “You’re only one workout away from a good mood.” It has been humid all day which made my room feel humid even with my fan on high. I was dripping in sweat during my workout tonight and throughout my Fit Test earlier today. Both of the shirts I wore were soaked lol. I love it though. It means I worked my ass off.
