After a week of only yoga to give my poor knees and flat feet a rest I’m wondering do I wanna go back running or finish Insanity?
PROS OF INSANITY
-The results/feeling fitter
-I can do it in my room
CONS Of INSANITY
-Requires more dedication/motivation than running
-I’ve never had knee trouble before Insanity???
-Getting a wee bit bored and I’m only on Week 3
PROS OF RUNNING
-Clears my head
-Gets me outside
-Get to feel the wind on my face
CONS OF RUNNING
-The roads are windy and cars drive too fast and I might die
-I don’t have proper shoes
-I get bored, even with music
-Exercising in public
-I really am nervous on these shitty roads
I know I could mix it up, but if you had to choose one over the other, which would you choose?
I’m gonna tag the shit out of this so if you’re a body positive fitblr then like this or something and I’ll check you out.
Sometimes I find it hard to reconcile weight loss with being body pos, so, if you’re body pos AND you’re losing weight, I would love you forever if you made yourself known to me in some way <3
Yo! Except I’m not about weight loss. I just like getting muscles and being sweaty.
Switch Kicks: 83 -> 86
Power Jacks: 24 -> 34
Power Knees: 50 -> 88
Power Jumps: 20 -> 28
Globe Jumps: 5 -> 8
Suicide Jumps: 5 -> 10
Push-up Jacks (wall): 15 -> 19
Low-Plank Oblique: 6 -> 50
There was so much sweat. SO MUCH. I was bathing in the stuff by the time the warmup finished.
I know it’s gonna be another few days before I’m back where I was before fitness-wise. If anyone can improve your fitness, it’s Shaun T.
8.40pm: About to do it. Don’t wanna do it. Bluuuugh.
9.20pm: Just finished, and so glad I did. Feel sweaty and happy.
Endorphins are amazing things, yo.
Right now, I’m actually looking forward to the longer workouts next month.
Can’t guarantee I’ll still feel like that when month 2 arrives though
and I’m looking after a wild toddler for 8 hours
also I gained a pound or more while working out every day and staying under my calorie goal. Frustrating or wha? …….Meh, I’ll worry about it next week if it continues.
Thank god I had done some research so I was prepared for no breaks, but I have to say, that was pretty fun!
Going to buy a wrist strap today (thanks for the tip healthyinnz!)
Not gonna lie, I’m not loving Insanity yet.
Still, I promised myself I’d stick to it for a month, so Day 5 of week 1 here I come!
This was easier than Day 2: Plyometric Cardio Circuit, so I didn’t have to modify as many of the exercises.
Thoroughly tired out, though.
My muscles are so fatigued that scrubbing myself in the shower took serious effort.
