Les Mills Pump Day 32

Les Mills Pump Workout: Hard Core Abs & Flow
Insanity Workout: Max Interval Circuit

It was another day off relaxing and also getting some small things done from home.  I woke up early but went back to bed.  I woke up a lot later than I wanted to the second time.  I weighed myself when I was finally up and I lost another 2 pounds!  10 pounds total since August 27th!  I am very close to where I was at the end of my second round of Insanity and the lowest weight that I have been at in years.  I think I’ll be able to get to it by the end of the week.  Yes it’s almost the end of the week but after all the workouts I have done today, it’s possible.

I worked out to Hard Core Abs and Flow this afternoon.  I found it a bit harder while working out to Hard Core Abs.  I’m not sure if it’s because I might be a little sore.  I did more than I did the last time I worked out to Hard Core Abs by trying not to modify as much in plank position.  Following that workout, I took on a challenge that one of the group members posted.  It was to see how long one can stand next to a wall in the squat position.  My time was 2 minutes and 1 second.  That was definitely not easy and as much as my legs were shaking and burning, I held out as long as I could.  I had to take a minute after I was done to recover.  I wouldn’t have been able to hold out so long if it weren’t for Les Mills Pump and their squats galore lol.  I’m sure I’ll be able to go longer as I lose more weight and get stronger.  I then worked out to Flow which was relaxing as usual.  My exercise for the day was not complete.  We worked out to Insanity’s Max Interval Circuit at Fit Club tonight.  I haven’t done any month two Insanity videos since June.  I was out of breath a bunch of times but I kept up as best as I could.  I was definitely doing Child’s Pose a few times throughout my workout.  At the end, I was sweating hardcore.  Clearly my endurance needs to be worked on.

I need to work on my endurance to not only be able to keep up whenever I workout to Insanity, but because I signed up for my first ever 5K race.  I will be doing the Hot Chocolate 5K in Chicago on November 4th.  I have been wanting to participate in a 5K race for some time now.  What a better way to run in my first one with chocolate being the main focus haha.  I won’t splurge too much and at least it’ll be early on a Sunday so it’s like a cheat day.  I am not a runner at all so I will have to start training tomorrow.  I am also raising funds before the race for Ronald McDonald House Charities® Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana.  To learn more about their cause or to make a donation, please visit https://ramracing.racebx.com/fundraising/view/5064b246-9fa4-4613-8905-362cc0a86524.  Any amount will greatly be appreciated!  Thanks!


Les Mills Pump Day 11

Les Mills Pump Workout: Flow
Insanity Workout: Pure Cardio

I had a semi-productive day today.  I cooked a healthy breakfast and lunch.  I can’t remember the last time I cooked back to back healthy meals.  It’s probably been a couple of months.  I usually have Shakeology for lunch, which by the way I switched to the new Chocolate Vegan formula, but my cousin was coming over so I wanted to make us lunch.  I gave my lunch some time to settle and worked out to Flow.  It’s nice to have recovery days when I have to workout again at Fit Club later on.

We went to Fit Club and worked out to Insanity Pure Cardio.  This was my cousin’s first time trying Insanity and she did alright.  It amazes me that I’m able to dig deep whenever I workout to Insanity.  I had a great sweat as usual and finished off my night with a Shakeology shake as my dinner.
