Are we here already!? Three weeks have flown by so far, and I'm happy to say that we are still going strong.
Here are my updates from week 3:
Day 15 - Fit Test (Monday)
I was excited to do the "Fit Test" today, as I was curious whether I've made any progress so far. I managed to better all my numbers, which I'm super happy about. I had to push myself so hard, and hopefully I'll be able to do even better in the next one, which will be in two weeks.
Day 16 - Plyometric Cardio Circuit (Tuesday)
Ouchy in my legs! I'm so sore today. Yesterday's "Fit Test" really took it out of me. I enjoyed this workout, even though the last sets of exercises are just out of control! Also, I haven't been sweating this much in a while. I thought you should know that...
Day 17 - Pure Cardio & Cardio Abs (Wednesday)
To say I was dreading today's workouts, would be the understatement of the year. Our long weekend in Taiwan kicked off today, and I would rather have passed out on the couch when I got home after a long day at work, than having to do endure this torture. I don't even know how I got through it.
Day 18 - Cardio Recovery (Thursday)
As we have a long weekend in Taiwan, I did the "Cardio Recovery" workout at home this morning, much to the amusement of The Boyfriend. He, of course, was lying on the couch, watching me sweat and stretch by myself. This was the first time he's seen an INSANITY workout, and kept making remarks of how "easy" it is. I had to tell him over and over that "Cardio Recovery" is not what the other workouts are like, and that this one doesn't really count. I don't think he believes me...
Day 19 - Cardio Power & Resistance (Friday)
I managed to persuade The Boyfriend to join me in today's workout. We just finished it, and it's 22:15pm. I almost skipped today's workout, as we were out of town and came back exhausted. When The Boyfriend agreed to do it with me, I had more motivation though. It was fun working out with him, and I'm pretty sure that he believes me now that the INSANITY workouts are freakin' insane! He's passed out on the couch now...
Day 20 - Plyometric Cardio Circuit (Saturday)
I should have had some breakfast before my workout, and had absolutely no energy to go all out today. I don't think this was my best performance, although I did do everything, maybe with not as much enthusiasm as one should... All I can say is that I'm damn happy it's Saturday and that tomorrow is a rest day!
Overall, this week's workouts went well. I'm feeling stronger and my form is definitely getting better. Also, now that I know all the workouts quite well, and don't have to look at how they are doing all the movements, and I can focus on going faster and doing more repetitions.
I'm proud of myself for doing all the workouts this week, even though we have a 4-day long weekend in Taiwan and I felt pretty lazy. I knew it was going to be harder to motivate myself, but I did them all and now I feel wonderful for completing it.
The highlight of this week was definitely having The Boyfriend join me for Friday's workout. Finally het got to experience what INSANITY is about, and even though he's already fit, he was sweating like a horse, and barely breathing by the end of the workout. This sight made me feel wonderful, and I had to give him the old "I told you so!" line, after he went on about how "easy" it is on Thursday morning.
One more week to go and we're at the end of the 1st month. How crazy is that!?
Have a fun weekend everyone!
