Insanity Workout Accountability with 54 Days Left Until Summer

Insanity Cardio Power & Resistance Workout Accountability It was a Saturday morning (yesterday) and I encountered a rare moment of “No Excuses”. As a mom of 3, this is very rare. Usually I have at least my 1 year old clinging on to me all day, the other two kids wanting me to read books or do some kind of craft and of course quality time with my husband too. Well, I realized I had this “No Excuses” moment after 30 minutes of my youngest sleeping, my husband glued to the Bulls game and my other two kids too busy playing to even realize I was in the room. Why did it take me so long to realize I had this perfect moment to fit in a workout? I could’ve been halfway through a workout if I had realized it the first minute. I guess I’m just used to putting it off for later in the evening or early in the morning to avoid any interruptions.

Now with 54 days left until summer, I’m on a mission. I want to lose a bit more weight and get toned up as I have always promised myself I would by summer of 2013. Last year I was still wearing a one piece and a tankini to the beach… but I seriously have this goal of getting into a one-piece this time. And it’s not like I’m trying to impress anyone, but it’s more about the satisfaction of actually meeting my goals and getting into the shape I promised myself to be in this summer. And you know what??? With 54 days left, it’s NOT too late 🙂 If I managed to workout with full commitment to the Insanity calendar and lose 6 dress sizes before one round was even completed before, then I have no excuses in terms of meeting my goals again this time. So there it is… I’ve just broadcasted my goal and I need you to help me stay accountable to that. 🙂

Anyway, back to my Insanity workout yesterday, it was absolutely a good burn! I haven’t done Insanity Cardio Power & Resistance in so long, I completely forgot how much sweat drips off of me when I do it… and even within just 10 minutes of doing the workout! And of course, with my other son still awake, he came in to the living room to keep me company. It’s a joy to have him around while working out because while I’m focused in the workout with a serious or struggling face, his presence makes me smile. And believe it or not, smiling while working out makes the exercise feel so much easier!

While Insanity is a tough workout, I wouldn’t say that was the most difficult part of getting it done at all. Yesterday, my hair piece was constantly falling off AND so were my yoga pants! With Insanity, there are a lot of jumps during the workout and trying to tie the top of my pants or fold them over just wasn’t working at all. BUT I wasn’t frustrated about that, it’s a good problem to have, right? I’ll welcome any sign of progress and just go shopping for a few new pants and shorts for working out.

Are you working out to Insanity too?? Let me know, I’d love to hear how it’s going for you!

Getting Fit Tip:
If you don’t have a workout scheduled into your day, utilize the first moment that you get to getting that workout done! But certainly, don’t go to bed until it’s done 🙂

Insanity Workout – Day 2

After An Insanity WorkoutOkay, this is not at all a pretty picture of me, but here is proof that I worked out today to Insanity.

Although I’ve worked out to Insanity before, my body is acting like it has never gone through this workout before. Being pregnant really does take a toll on woman’s body. One thing that really changed was the strength in my core. There is close to absolutely none at this point. So one thing that I hope Insanity will do for me is to strengthen my core by a lot. My lower back has been hurting a lot lately and I’m going to guess one reason is because my core muscles aren’t able to provide any support.

The drills were a killer and at about 19 minutes left on the clock, I was ready to give up. But, rather than quitting, I kept pushing and I lasted until the very end. I thought to myself, “Why am I going to quit now when I’ve just started? I want to see results and I’m going to get my results!” I think many times when it comes to achieving our goals, a lot of it has to do with our mind. When we feel like quitting, we don’t put up much of an argument and so we allow ourselves to give up so easily. But when we do remind ourselves of our goals and our original intent, then it’s easy to continue on.

Getting Fit Tip: Keep digging deep! Exercise is supposed to be uncomfortable and getting good results requires us to stay committed. The challenge itself will be very rewarding in the end, so stick to it! Take short breaks if you need to, but do stop only if you feel you may be injuring yourself.
