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.
