Insanity Week 2 - Summary

Weigh-in for 2/24:  114.2 lbs

Yay, I'm halfway through month 1 of Insanity.  I definitely feel like I've improved over the last few weeks.  I've been pushing myself hard, so I'm not surprised that I did better on fit test #2.  FYI: The number in parentheses indicates extra reps completed to record improvement.

1.  Switch Kicks: 104 - (39)
2.  Power Jacks: 53 - (8)
3.  Power Knees: 110 - (17)
4.  Power Jumps: 42 - (15)
5.  Globe Jumps: 12 - (2)
6.  Suicide Jumps: 23 - (4)
7.  Push-up Jacks: 28 - (9)
8.  Low Plank Obliques: 60 - (16)

I started off doing pretty well, but I was gasping for air towards the end! I still have a long way to go, but I'm perfectly content with my steady progress.

On another note, I had my first Pure Cardio + Cardio Abs session last Thursday.  I wanted to freakin' die. Pure Cardio is hard enough as is, adding Cardio Abs pretty much killed me.

One of my goals for 2013 is to get a six-pack, so hopefully this very, very cruel circuit will get me one step closer. I really need to step up my game because my core is really weak. Anyways, that's all for now.  Remember to eat clean & train dirty, everyone =P

As you guys know, I've been out of commission the last couple of days due to illness, but yesterday I started exercising again. Let me tell you, jumping right back into Week 2 of Insanity was NOT easy, but hey, "no pain,no gain" right?

Week 2 Update

So this week has been a bummer.  I got through the first three days  of week 2 but had to stop due to illness.  I felt sick earlier during the week, but pushed through my workouts anyway. By Thursday, I was totally out of commission.  I didn't want to skip classes or cancel teaching sessions though, so I forced myself to get out of bed each morning. I was so wiped, I went to sleep at 7 PM every night. Anyways, I finally feel a little better today. Although I'm disappointed that I had to put my exercise regimen on hold, it was for the best!  

Since I didn't get to finish week 2 of Insanity, I'm just going to repeat it starting tomorrow! I may have had to put my fitness plans on hold temporarily, but I'm ready to get back into the game.

Insanity - Week 1

Weekly Weigh-in: 114.8 lbs

YAY! I'm done with week 1 of Insanity.  I definitely felt sore after the first few workouts, but I'm really glad I powered through the sessions.  I think my favorite circuit was "Pure Cardio", but I felt the most pain after "Cardio Power and Resistance". Insanity actually comes with an eating plan, but I'm not following the guidelines.  I'm eating clean though (on my terms)!  Since I've been really good this entire week, I rewarded myself with a splurge meal! I had Taquitos and Manicotti for lunch.  I know it's kind of a weird combination, but whatevs,  it was delicious. 

Anyways, I'm excited for week 2! I know I'm going to kill it =)

Insanity Stats

Hey guys, 

I've been meaning to update the fitness segment of Sensible Stylista for a while now, but I never got a chance to.  School has been crazy as of late.  There just aren't enough hours in a day.  I wish I could function on less sleep.  

Anyways, I started Insanity on Monday - I'm currently on Day 4.  My body is ridiculously sore, and my calves are in excruciating pain.   It seriously takes me about 5 minutes to walk up 3 flights of stairs.  Whatever.  I don't care.  Bring the pain!

For those of you who are interested, I'll be posting weekly progress reports on Sundays (my off-days).  For today's post, I'm recording stats from Day 1.  The program measures physical/athletic improvement every two weeks by administering a fit test (there are five in total).  Basically, you have a minute to do as many reps as you can for each exercise.  Man, I forgot how brutal some of these exercises were.  The power jumps, switch kicks, and push-up jacks KILL me.  Here are my results:

1.  Switch Kicks: 65
2.  Power Jacks: 45
3.  Power Knees: 93
4.  Power Jumps: 27
5.  Globe Jumps: 10
6.  Suicide Jumps: 19
7.  Push-up Jacks: 19
8.  Low Plank Obliques: 44

I'm excited to push myself.  I know I'll beat these numbers next time!  Oh, I forgot to mention that in addition to my weekly updates, I'll be recording my weight as well.  When I started this program, my weight was 115 lbs.  

Have an awesome week guys!  Thanks for reading!
