Workout Updates

23 08 2015

I’ve completed 7 weeks of exercise.  5 days a week, for about 40 minutes a day in the mornings before work.  My eating habits have drastically changed.  I no longer have the cravings that I used to.  I am no longer randomly snacking when I’m bored or just sitting.  I’ve had 1 beer in those 7 weeks (today actually in Leavenworth), but no soda.  My ‘sweets snacks’ have been so limited to the point where I can’t eat as much as I used to because my body is not used to that much sugar anymore.  A piece of cake for a birthday party, or a spoon of ice cream.

I splurged a bit today in Leavenworth.  A beer and a brat, and a couple bits of my daughter’s ice cream.  I did so because on Monday starts a new workout program.  I am going to blog about this one.  It’s called Insanity MAX:30.  It is touted as THE hardest workout program out there, and I don’t doubt it.  I remember the very first time that I did the Insanity program.  Within the first 7 minutes, I had to go outside because I felt like I was going to puke; and outside was a lot closer than the bathroom which I didn’t think I would make it to.  The last 4 weeks I’ve been doing the Insanity program again.  I love it now, it really pushed me and I feel like I get a great workout.  I’ve lost about 18 pounds so far.

I am actually excited about starting it.  The premise of the workout is to push yourself as hard as you can for as long as you can.  When your body finally gives out, you write down the time.  The idea is that you’ll write the time every day, and hopefully you’ll see your time length increase.  Here’s a little preview of what the program is like.

I must be crazy or something to willingly subject myself to this, but there is something about these types of workouts that I just love completing.  So we’ll see how it goes.
