Day 5, Pure Cardio

Good workout but I cannot do switch kicks or push up jacks for the life of me.

Insanity day 4: Cardio Recovery

Didn’t expect to sweat as much as I did during this workout. I liked that it was a bit slower, but those squat holds are no joke! 

Its amazing that just after four days I feel so much stronger and better about my body, must be those endorphins pumping! Excited for pure cardio tomorrow. 

Day 3 of Insanity done!

Now eating a nice, big healthy lunch of 3 scrambled eggs, spinach salad w/roasted red pepper and light dressing, and greek yogurt w/chia seeds. Then a shower and off to work for the evening. Hope all of you have a lovely day!

Fit test results and day two of Insanity completed!

Realized I forgot to post the results yesterday so here we go…

  • switch kicks: 31
  • power jacks: 34
  • power knees: 50
  • power jumps: 25
  • globe jumps: 5
  • suicide jumps: 10
  • push-up jacks:13
  • low plank oblique: 32

Yikes! Can’t wait to see some improvements to that.

Just finished day 2: plyometric cardio circuit. Kicked my ass pretty hard but it feels so good! I was already a little sore today so I’m sure I’ll be feeling it tomorrow as well. 

Recovering with this spinach, chicken, roasted red pepper, sprinkle of parmesan, and tiny bit of vinaigrette salad.

About to kick back and watch the Olympics now!

Did the Insanity fit test today!

I was planning on starting it yesterday but ended up going on a five mile walk with my mom and then had plans with my friend right after. So I did the fit test today and boy it made me feel out of shape. I’ll post my results here so that I can compare them later. Pretty much right after doing the fit test I went on a 3 mile walk with my mom. My eating has been extremely clean also which makes me happy. I even resisted all the tempting food in the food court at the mall today while my friends ate it. I’ve just been plateaued for months now so I am really ready to see some change. 

And another bf update. He texted me last night at like 11 telling me he thought about me all day and he really wanted me to get on skype because he couldn’t sleep and wanted to talk to me. I stood my ground though and told him that I would talk to him this weekend. I just really want for him to see what its like not having me in his life and see if that changes how he feels. I am so nervous to talk to him but at the same time I feel better about it. Him texting me yesterday felt good to know that hes thinking about me/us/the situation. So we will see. In the meantime I am staying strong by eating well and exercising.

Boyfriend update…

He texted me this morning asking what I think. I told him that I want things to work out but I can’t make him feel that way. He wants to take a break (has anyone ever taken a break and it worked out?) but he still wanted to talk everyday like we normally do. I told him that I can’t talk to him and not get upset so we decided to wait until this weekend and then see how we are feeling :/ I feel terrible.

On a more positive note, I’m going to start insanity today to try and keep my mind off of things.

Last night my boyfriend told me that he loves me and cares about me but he can’t see our relationship working out.  We live 12 hours apart and he said the distance is too hard for him. We’ve been making it work for over 2 years and I had been looking at ways to move and be with him. He says he still wants to talk as friends but I don’t know if I can do that without being more hurt than I am already feeling.  Part of me wants to use this is a way to focus on myself and make myself better, but part of me wants to curl up in a ball and cry forever. I’m in pieces. 

Been stuck around 196-200 pounds which is frustrating. I woke up today and felt pretty good about how my stomach is looking though. Wish I could lose some fat from my arms.
