I started with a workout right away this morn. My first thought, “Hey, it’s Saturday, I am going to have a nice, long Turbo workout, rather than insane Insanity.” I just did not feel like putting my body through that killer workout on a Saturday morning. I put in Turbo Jam Cardio Party 3, a 40 minute cardio workout.
I did 10 minutes, then decided, “Okay, I want insane Insanity.” I ejected the Cardio Party and put in the madness. I followed the 60 Day Insanity Calendar, even though I had no intentions of following this plan. I told Ben my plan was just to do it when I felt like I needed an intense cardio session and I had enough energy for it.
The calendar called for Cardio Power & Resistance workout.
Insanity Day #3
Another super-intense workout. I had to stop and rest often, but I consider that okay because even the people working out behind Shaun T have to stop and take a rest every once in awhile. I was dripping sweat after just the warm up. These workouts are amazing. A great start to my Saturday.
I am on Day #3 in a row of the Insanity DVDs. My body is more sore than it has been in a long time, or possibly has ever been. I am excited about that, because it tells me that these workouts are doing the job.
I am currently experiencing a weight-loss plateau. I am not necessarily sure what causes this and I have often wondered if it was even a real thing ~ well now I know it is. I have not changed my diet and, if anything, my workouts have become a tiny bit more rigorous lately. This plateau is frustrating and confusing. I have been doing some research, which has helped a little. Any knowledge, advice, or words of wisdom to share on this frustrating topic??
Now, on to less-maddening topics ~ dinner:
Ben and I both decided that pizza sounded great. However, we each made our own tonight because we totally disagreed on ingredients. My healthy version included:
Baboli 100% Whole Wheat Crust
Rague 7 Herb Pizza Sauce
~ 1/4 cup Sargento Low Fat Italian Cheese
I ate an undocumented second slice. I am happy with my pizza – it was delish!
I have been extra hungry today. I just sat down before dinner to write down every single thing I ate today. I never do this, but I was just curious about cal #s today because I thought for sure it had to be close to 1,000,000. Not really ~ I have eaten a lot, but all were healthy choices. I just hope this extra hunger has to do with my Insanity workouts. I am not sure of another way to explain this crazy, over-sized appetite of mine.
I want to get a late night Turbo Session in tonight – I think that will help me feel better. For now, hitting the couch for a movie with Benny & Lil.
Talk to you soon :)
