Progress

Well, it’s December 1st. One whole month on insanity. How is it going?

Pretty freaking fantastic I would say!!

I have lost about 6 lbs, but I have definitely lost some inches. I’m a size 18w now in all my bottoms and am a XL or L in my tops. I feel great and am in the midst of recovery week.

I think I love insanity. Everyone talks about their soulmate workout. I’m 99% convinced this is it. Why 1% of doubt? Because I haven’t tried everything. I don’t mind the repetition of DVDs and still push hard in the mornings. Every workout I try to improve my form or add another rep. This is the key – keep pushing!

Meal wise, you already know my drill. I’m a vegetarian with commitment issues. That seems to keep me balanced and healthy and I like it.

Here is a pic of me pre workout this week. Whoa body!! I will be taking my next fit test on Thursday, I also am including my fit test 1 to 2 progress.

Fitter for Summer – May 1st

Today I did the Fitter for Summer 30 day challenge fit test to kick off the month of May with Bodyrock.  I did a combination of the beginner and intermediate bodyweight tests, scores below

Beginner/Intermediate Mash Up Fit Test
Squat Jump + 1/2 Burpee 10/7/8
Pushups (all on knees) 17/18/18
Tricep Dips (off couch) 12/12/15
Abs (off couch) 12/14/14

I’ll be honest – yesterday I didn’t eat well so after I finished that fit test I decided to push myself a bit.  I did JM body rev workout #4.  I’m glad I did, I felt much better afterwards.  I really do like workout #4 – it’s my favorite so far.

Last item of the morning – the bodyrock flow fit test. I’m very excited for the Bodyrock Flow program to kick off.  I really do enjoy yoga and want to do more of it.  I’ve never consistently done a yoga practice so I’m definitely hoping that the yoga takes the same 12 minute format so I can keep up with it.

Flow Test
Downward Dog – heels not on floor, back of legs tight
Pigeon – trouble getting into position with hips straight, hip stays high (need pillow), tight front leg
Dangling – hands on floor, straight legs
Standing Back Bend – very slight back bend, any farther makes breathing difficult
