So, here we are; Week 2, done and dusted! This week was so much easier for me than Week 1. It's incredible how quickly my body got used to these exercise routines, as I haven't been sore at all this week, and I can definitely already feel that it's much stronger.
Here are my daily updates from Week 2:
Day 8 - Cardio (Monday)
This was my 3rd time in a week doing the Cardio workout, and I'm pleasantly surprised that it went much better today than it did last Monday. Is it possible for your body to get fit this fast!? I know each week will get easier as I get used to the routines in each workout, as that means I don't have to look at the screen all the time and can focus on doing each movement perfectly. I'm feeling extremely motivated today and I'm excited for the rest of the week!
Day 9 - Total Body Circuit (Tuesday)
This is by far my least favorite workout. Maybe because it's the most reminiscent of the INSANITY workouts... I really dislike all the pushups, and can barely keep up. It's frustrating to not be able to do all the movements and keep up with the DVD, but I guess it can only get better from here?
Day 10 - Speed 1.0 (Wednesday)
I had to skip today's workout because I've been extremely nauseous today and struggled with a migraine most of the day. Even just walking around the house made my head hurt, so I can't imagine what it would have felt like to jump around. I might catch up with this workout on Sunday (my usual Rest day) if I'm not sore or tired.
Day 11 - Cardio (Thursday)
Cardio. Again! My workout buddies and I really like this one and can now do it much better than that first day. I still get extremely tired towards the end, but luckily we have the option of modifying the routine, so I can just switch to that lower impact routine instead of stopping completely. Feeling really really good after this session.
Day 12 - Ab Intervals (Friday)
I went to a wedding straight after work so we didn't have time for our usual after-work Focus T25 session. I got home really late and was way too tired after my long day to exercise. Looks like I'll have to catch up some time this weekend.
Day 13 - Lower Focus & Stretch (Saturday)
I just finished the Lower Focus and Stretch workouts and feel so good and ready for the weekend. I'm thinking I'll do the Speed 1.0 and Ab Intervals workouts tomorrow to make up for the ones I missed this weekend. Am I too obsessed? I just don't want to fall behind and not give 110%. Plus, technically I had two rest days this past week.
It's crazy to think that two weeks of Focus T25 are already over. Eight to go! I'm noticing some changes in my body already. My arms, abs and legs are getting more toned, and my stamina when working out has increased a lot. I haven't weighed myself again since Day 1, so I might do it next week. I'm not trying to lose weight, but it's always interesting to see what happens to your body when you exercise this much.
I just want to be fit, toned and be healthy and feel energized. And by doing this workout program, I know I'm well on my way to reaching my goal.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
