Insanity Day 5

Insanity Workout: Plyometric Cardio Circuit

Happy Friday!  The weather here in Chicago could be a little better but I’ll make the best day out of it.  I finished another round of the Plyometric Cardio Circuit workout and it feels as if my body is still working out.  I pushed a little harder today even though I feel like I’m getting sick.  I woke up with a scratchy throat and a runny nose.  However, I didn’t feel sick when I was working out.  As I’m writing this entry, I’m enjoying my daily dose of Chocolate Shakeology.  I blended a scoop with water, Almond Milk, ice, strawberries, blueberries, and I thought I would make it a more interesting with some kale.  The shake still tastes great!  I also love that I’m chewing the bits of kale in it.  I’m sure with all of the fruits, vegetables, and Shakeology I’ll be feeling 100 percent tomorrow.

It seems as if I have a theme for each day.  I have lots of motivational posters that go hand in hand with my journey so far since I started working out and eating healthy.  It’s all about no excuses today.  If you really want something, you’ll do no matter what it takes to get it.

Insanity Day 4

Insanity Workout: Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs

I have one word to describe today’s workout…”INSANE!”  I know what you’re probably saying…”Duh, isn’t that why it’s called Insanity?”  Well yeah, it still was the hardest one so far.  Just when I thought Monday’s and Tuesday’s workouts were hard, Shaun T kicks it up a notch with Pure Cardio.  There are no intervals; just nonstop cardio and each move lasted a minute compared to 30 seconds each and doing them in a circuit.  It’s crazy how a lot of the people working out in the video had to take lots of breaks and they are very fit.  I mentioned before how my room is generally cold especially with one of my windows being broken.  It got so hot in my room that I had to plug in my fan and turn it up full blast.  After Pure Cardio, came Cardio Abs.  It was a little slower paced with no sit-ups or crunches and I can definitely feel that I worked out my core.

Once again, I felt like I wanted to quit during Cardio Abs and of course I didn’t quit.  I love how Shaun T motivates you to keep on going and keep pushing through each move.  I felt like he was right there with me lol.  I took my breaks and had to modify a few more moves than usual today.  Either way, it was very rewarding to finish today’s workout.
