Insanity Workout: Max Cardio Conditioning and Cardio Abs

It has been another beautiful day in the Chicago Area!  I started out my day by playing tennis with another former teammate this morning.  My shots were a bit off and again I need to work on my consistency.  I made sure I kept drinking water so I don’t feel the way I did on Sunday night.  After playing, I picked up a bottle of Spirulina tablets.  I have been hearing a lot about Spirulina lately and I thought I would include it in my diet.  Spirulina is a blue-green algae which is a “superfood” and immune booster.  It is also a rich source of natural, plant-based iron, calcium, vitamin A and vitamin C, and an excellent source of plant protein, with up to 70% of its dry weight being protein.  I just started taking it today so I will report on how I’m feeling after a week.

I was back at work tonight after having the day off yesterday.  As usual, I did a bunch of walking around and had a good night at work.  I worked out to Max Cardio Conditioning and Cardio Abs as soon as I got home.  I had a great workout regardless of how my body was feeling.  I was feeling a little pain when I walked in my bladder.  Let’s just say I made a big mistake by not going to the washroom until after work.  I’m hoping the pain will go away once I wake up in the morning and it’s nothing major.  I’ll be playing tennis again and I’m going to try to get my workout in before I go to work too.

Insanity Day 57 – Round 2

Insanity Workout: Fit Test #4/Max Interval Plyo

What the…I fell asleep at 9:00pm last night and woke up at noon!  I slept for 14 hours and I guess working in the sun yesterday really took a lot out of me.  I even fell asleep in the clothes I went to work in.  I woke up at 6:00am and woke up a few more times after that and I still managed to go back to sleep.  The same thing happened to one of the girls I work with yesterday too.  We were supposed to go to the movies but both of us passed out super early.  We were thinking maybe we had a very minor heat stroke which is a crazy, yet scary thought.  I made sure I drank enough water yesterday.

I have been putting off my fourth Fit Test from last Monday and I finally did it today after I woke up.  There’s only a week left to my second round of Insanity but better late than never!  I improved a tiny bit in most of the moves in this Fit Test.  Following the Fit Test, I relaxed for the rest of the afternoon because I still had a small headache.  I had a headache before I went to bed last night too.  My skin was feeling hot like I was in the sun even though I was inside the whole day.  I need to cool down and keep drinking water.  I heard drinking coconut water is a great way to stay hydrated so I picked up a couple of them from the grocery store before I picked up my friend from the airport.

I did a late workout to Max Interval Plyo when I got home and I was feeling a little better from earlier.  I drank a lot of water during my workout and took a few more breaks than usual so I don’t get too tired.  I had a good workout either way.  Even though it’s late, I’m still wide awake.  I guess that’s what I get for sleeping 14 hours.  I’m going to be playing tennis early tomorrow morning so I better force myself to bed.
