Insanity - Week 3, Day 2

Hey Folks! Last night's workout was a killer! I accidentally did the Plyometric Cardio Circuit Workout again for the 2nd day in a row. I put the wrong disc in and by the time I realized it, I was too far into it to stop and do something else.

All in all it went well.Today is the 2nd day of the 3rd week of my journey through Insanity and I'm feeling pretty good. The sweat is still dripping during the workouts so my body is definitely not getting used to it yet. However, I am finding that I can do more and more without falling out on the floor in pain or stopping for water breaks. Nevertheless, I still stay hydrated when working out and follow all of the safety cues as not to cause injury. And I can't stress enough how important it is to stretch!

Speaking stretching, my calf muscles are killing me. I'm really kicking myself in the butt for not taking full body measurements now because I can tell I've lost inches off of my chest area, thighs and right arm. I'm still suffering from an injury to my left wrist but I'm determined to push past it because I don't want my left arm to stay flabby while the right one is toning up nicely. One of the things I like the most about Insanity is that you don't have to use any weights or outside equipment. You're using your own body weight and resistance to loose fat and build muscle and it doesn't require too much space either.

I have about 12 more weeks before my vow renewal in Jamaica and 20 lbs to go until I reach my first goal of hitting the 100's. If I keep at this pace, I can definitely pull it off. Even if I only loose 2 lbs per week, I should see more than I'm shooting for. The physical activity is not the problem for me. It's food. I have to get more discipline.
I've set a pretty aggressive goal for myself of 4 lbs by next Tuesday. In order to help accomplish this, I've decided to eat more fresh/frozen veggies and less carbs. I try to limit my carb intake to one meal per day. I've also decided not to allow myself my usual weekly "bad meal" this week. I'm staying away from pork and beef as well until I can't take it anymore. I'm like a walking, talking, weight-loss experiment. If it sounds reasonable and likely to work, I'm willing to try it (as long as its not too painful, LOL)


  1. I've never tried Insanity or P90X, but I've heard good things about them both.

  2. Thanks, Tiff.

    @ Kelly - I had to watch the infomercials for a year before I got the guts up to actually try it myself. I'm pleased with the results so far and this is only my third week.


Thanks so much for reading and accompanying me through this journey! I'd love to hear from you. Feel free to leave a comment.
