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.

Insanity Day 56 – Round 2

Insanity Workout: Off Day

Whew it has been a long day!  I wasn’t able to do my Fit Test like I wanted to this morning because I had an early day at work.  I didn’t do any walking around today but it felt like I worked out either way.  It was a hot one and I literally worked in the sun the entire time.  I made sure I stayed hydrated though.  Other than that, it was a nice off day from working out.  Again, not much to say over the past couple of days so I apologize for that lol.  I’m feeling a bit tired and it’s still early so we’ll see how late my night goes.

Insanity Day 55 – Round 2

Insanity Workout: Core Cardio and Balance

Going to bed very late and waking up early for a workout was a little rough.  I worked out to Core Cardio and Balance this morning so at least it wasn’t too hard of a workout.  After that, I quickly got ready for work.  It was warmer today and I didn’t have to do as many steps but I did do some good walking around.  Following work, I watched the NBA Eastern Conference Finals and then the Pacquiao fight.  The outcome of the fight was ridiculous but let’s not get into that lol.  If you saw the fight or have seen my Twitter posts right after the fight, then you know what I’m talking about.

Insanity Day 54 – Round 2

Insanity Workout: Max Interval Circuit

I woke up this morning and my body is sore!  I didn’t think I could feel this sore again.  I ‘m probably sore from working on my arms yesterday in the gym and with all of the moving around I did on top of my workout.  I even had a little trouble walking at times because my shins and calves were sore.  I still love the feeling and it means I’m able to build a bit more muscle.

I spent a good part of my day driving and as much as I want to vent about Chicago traffic, I won’t go too much into it.  Okay, well I will a little bit lol.  I drove my friend to the airport and the expressway was backed up so far back.  The signs said it would take 73 minutes at one point which is insane even for a Friday.  I dropped her off and decided to take local streets to work and even that took me an hour and a half.  Friday’s are usually bad but I have never seen Chicago traffic that bad ever.  I even encountered a little traffic at 11pm while on my way home from work.

Well at work, I did a bunch walking around and going up and down steps again.  That combined with warmer temperatures, I’d say I had a pretty good workout at work alone.  I got home late from work and did a super late workout to Max Interval Circuit.  Soreness and late aside, I got my workout done and I’ll be doing my Fit Test on Sunday.  It’s crazy how I went from going out Friday nights to working out lol.  Hey, I have to do what I have to do in order to get to my goal weight.  I didn’t end my night with my workout though.  Immediately after that, I decided to clean a part of my room.  I’m not sure what possessed me to do that after a long day and a huge workout.  Maybe it’s from staring at my mess each day and finally having enough of it when I looked at it again.  Oh well, now it’s much later than I had intended on going to bed so I better get to it!

Hope you all have a great weekend!
