Insanity, Day 2…Now I Get It!

March 16, 2013 § 1 Comment

Today was day 2 of the insanity workout.  I decided not to do it first thing in the morning, mostly because I woke up a little late and wanted to take H to the new children’s museum.  I was a good girl, though.  Oatmeal for breakfast and not much else until after the workout…except for that Starbucks scone.  I almost forgot about that…oops!

So now I understand the workout.  I’m not sure if this Shaun T. ripped off my former boxing teacher or if my boxing teacher ripped him off but either way, it’s basically the same workout.  The difference was I was only doing boxing once a week but for 1.5 hours.  Shaun T. has me going for broke 6 days a week, 45 minutes a pop.  I could handle my boxing class.  It was hard but guess what?  I saw results.  And that was only doing it once a week.  I can only imagine the results I will see from doing Insanity 6 days a week.  Now I’m excited.  For the record, though, I’m not sure what my body will feel like each day.  It’s only day 2 and I’m in so much pain from head to toe.  My feet are so crampy during the workout.  They kill!  Plus I just realized while looking down that I really lean on the outside of my feet while exercising.  It’s pretty bad.  Ok.  Day 2 done.  Steak tonight with the hubbie.  I love me some steak : )

In It To Win It

OK, day 1 of Insanity is DONE! Woo hoo! Everyone jump (because I didn’t do enough of that this morning)! Ok, so it’s hard. It made Bikram feel like a walk in the park. It was only the fit test for goodness sakes; what do I have to look forward to? No, seriously, it wasn’t THAT bad. I mean, it wasn’t SO bad that I won’t continue. No way, I’m in it! It definitely reminds me of my old boxing class I used to take at the multigen. That class was intense. 1.5 hours long and before you started, you had to run a mile. What? But, I got through it. It was the same format…lots of old school calisthenics mixed with some newer cardio craziness. The difference is that the class was 1.5 hours once a week. This thing is 6 days on, 1 day off for 45 minutes each day. Honestly, though, I feel great. I love starting my day off with exercise. I practically skipped into work this morning. We’ll see how tomorrow goes!

Where Am I?
