Insanity - Week 2

Monday, August 12, 2013

Ahh, it's been another week in the land of Insanity. I'm starting to feel a little less insane every time I do these workouts, which is a good thing I guess.

I'm trying my best not to get frustrated at my results because ultimately I have been seeing results. The main one being that I can push myself harder in the workouts. The second one being losing inches. The scales, those dumb scales, are the ones that I have gotten most frustrated at. And I know that gaining weight is most likely the results of gaining muscle, but still, a little drop (not gain) would be nice.

I did try to motivate myself this week by getting new workout shorts which I LOVE! Mom and I went to JC Penny's this week to find some of their sale items and browsed on over to the workout gear. I originally found these "bike" shorts in Nike brand but they were somewhere around $27... um no way. I gave up on getting me some nice bike shorts, but then I found them in another brand Penny's carried and it was love at first sight.

PS I love me some bathroom mirror pictures... anyway, they are wonderful. They have this band on the inside of the legs so they stay in place and won't ride up which was my main concern. So I have worn them twice and absolutely love them. I'm looking forward to working out in them again this week.

So like I've said I gained some weight this week, but still saw some drops in inches...

Although to make myself feel better I compared my week 2 fit test from this round to the week 2 fit test from my first time doing Insanity. Let me just say I feel a lot better and stronger this time than last year around this time. Overall during the fit test I was about to do 57 more things total. During the fit test we do multiple exercises that include kicks, jumps, push up, squats, oblique and ab work. It's just a variety of different exercises that we encounter during the Insanity workout.

I'm hoping that over the next week I will see my weight drop back some as well as some more inches slowly sliding off.

  1. I am always shocked at how much Nike stuff costs, it may be cute but not worth the money haha.

  2. You are doing great!!! Just keep up the great work!

  3. Looks like fun! Good luck! Don't give up on it! It will get easier and easier while it gets harder and harder ;)

  4. New workout clothes can make all the difference in terms of motivation. They always makes me feel instantly energized and ready to go.

  5. I loved Insanity. My husband and I did it for about 3 weeks before our schedules got all fudged up and we lost the time for it. It was such a great program and I hope we can start up with it again once things die down a little bit. Keep up the great work!
