Without the "work" it's an "EASY-OUT!"

I should have typed this blog yesterday but sometimes life just gets in the way! My plate is so full right now and not with food. lol.

Sooo yesterday I did end up with some time to spare and wanted to get in a good workout. What's better to make up for a week off than a good ol' date (or 2) with Shaun T and some INSANITY???

I started Insanity back in January and when my daughter ended up in the hospital, I stopped for a week, then never restarted the schedule and decided to put it on hold. Once my friend Daphne started doing Insanity this week, I decided it was time to at least work it back into my rotation even if I don't follow the schedule (Because I simply SUCK at following schedules and it's as simple as that!).

Anyway, I wanted to see if I had progressed on my FIT TEST despite not following the Insanity schedule but still striving to improve myself. It turns out I DID!

Here are the exercises:

Here are my results - In black is the 1st week back in January and in red are yesterday's results.

SWITCH KICKS: 82 ; 85POWER JACKS: 44 ; 56POWER KNEES: 88 ; 91POWER JUMPS: 32 ; 40GLOBE JUMPS: 9.5 ; 10SUICIDE JUMPS: 12 ; 16PUSH UP JACKS: 20 ; 30LOW PLANK OBLIQUES: 52 ; 57

Just goes to show that my theory on switching it up and not following any specific schedule, WORKS! I am continuously improving myself and my fitness and I just do whatever floats my boat each day. :)

I followed the Fit Test up with Insanity Plyometric Cardio Circut:


and then since I had shared some stability workouts on my page earlier in the day, I decided to give those a try too:

THENNNNNN when I was watching Biggest Loser last night, I worked out my biceps, triceps, and shoulders and some ab work with my 10lb dumbbells. I have no idea how many reps I did but it was a lot!!

Man oh man I am SORE!!!!!! It hurts when I go to sit on the potty haha I have to slowwwwllly squat down. My muscles are killing me. But guess what??? That didn't stop me from doing Jillian Michaels Six Week Six Pack today! I tried it on Level 2 and it's WAY more intense than Level 1 but it gave me a serious BURN!! and oh boy do I lovvveeee my muscles BURNING!

On a Weight Watchers note:
  • I worked a meeting tonight and a girl that came in for the first time told me that she was a little starstruck when she saw me, that she was a fan of my FB page, and that I inspired her to join! How awesome is that??!
  • This coming Sunday my good friend Nicole is hosting a Weight Watchers online community meeting in NY and my fabulous friend Daphne that you read about a couple weeks ago and myself will be guest speakers! We are meeting up early for some breakfast together then I am hoping to hang out with some Weight Watchers friends maybe for a Central Park walk after!! Super exciting!!!
  • I really hope I reach my 100 pound goal on Saturday so I can celebrate on Sunday! But not stressing if not!! I have decided the scale is no longer allowed to stress me out!!
