The night before I started this is what I felt like:
Oh, and they want you to do the fit test on this day too. Which I did not do, I did it on my rest day the day before instead of doing 2 workouts in one day, ain’t nobody got time for that.
Day 2: Max Plyo: Plyometrics are dumb. It’s like someone was doing a workout and thought, “This workout made me almost puke and pass out. Ya know what would make this suck even more? If we JUMPED while doing this.” And thus, plyometrics were started. So that’s what like, 90% of this workout was. Switch JUMPS, power JUMPS, globe twists (AKA JUMPS), power lunges, HOP squats, diamond JUMPS, pogo JUMPS. Terrible. Absolutely terrible. I’m woman enough to admit that about 3/4ths of the way through this video I laid down on the ground and honestly was on the verge of tears. BUT, I got back up and finished. THEN cried.
Day 3: Max Cardio Conditioning: Remember how I said Pure Cardio was the worst? I lied. THIS is the worst. It’s 49 minutes long and it’s to the max cardio. The warm up is cardio, then stretch then 25 straight minutes of kick your butt cardio conditioning. I wore my fancy pants heart rate monitior when I was doing this and it calculated that I burned over 900 calories during this workout (Yes, I know this is an estimation, but I like to think that I am a super human and burned that much.) then I went out the Cheesecake Factory and ate this:
Day 6: Plyo Circuit again. BOOOO.
Day 7: Rest.
Day 8: Max Cardio, I think I only took 18 breaks this time instead of 42.
Day 9: Max Interval Circuit, the weird thing is, even after doing these same 5 workouts everyday, I always forget what’s coming. I’m strangely not bored of them and still on my toes about whats to come next.
Day 10: Max Plyo, I think I’m declaring this one my least favorite. Because even though Max Cardio you get no breaks, this one is SO long.
Day 11: Was supposed to be Max Recovery, instead I ran almost 3 miles. Then ate WAYYYYY too much cake and M&Ms.
Day 12: Max Cardio AND Cardio Abs. I’ve actually only completed cardio abs once. I workout when Rae is sleeping and Little S is eating breakfast/doing puzzles or watching Youtube (Depending on the length of the video, if it’s the longer ones I wait til he’s napping.) I tried to do cardio abs, I really did, but Rae started screaming bloody murder like, 3 minutes into it. It’s almost as if she knows my stomach is ruined from stretch marks and having babies so she’s just kind of telling me to give up on the concept of having a non-mom stomach.
Day 13: Cardio core and balance, the recovery week workout.
Day 14: Rest.
I just completed day 15 of Month 2 and have redone my measurements and am still losing inches off my body. I started Insanity not only because I wanted to lose the baby weight quickly, but because I wanted to prove to myself that I could. It’s a love/hate relationship with this workout, but I already know I’m going to do it again. It’s the kind of workout that people like to either applaud you or scoff at you for what you put yourself through. All I know is that either way you take it, I’m working for the body I want and pushing myself to give me a better sense of confidence.
13 days left to dig deeper.
I’ve had a few people ask me about my diet and how I make time for working out. Sound off in the comments if you have any other questions and I’ll answer them when I update on my final results!
