These are my measurements as of now 1/07/2014:
Upper Arms: 30cm
Underneath Breast (Ribs): 87cm
I am quite aware that some of these measures don’t even exist per se but I wanted to register them down so I could better follow my improvements regarding volume and body mass.
I have been cheating on Insanity but not like before. I have been doing when I can and I have also been fast pace walking 4km per night plus running about 2km. I feel much better and today against all odds I gathered the strength of the gods and did Pure Cardio plus the overall 6km workout right after, after a long day at the beach. Feeling good and ready to kick Shaun’s ass again. I’ll be starting tomorrow as if it was my first week just to have something to follow by. I am proud. And I need to keep on feeling this way.
My face is on fire.
And this is Shaun T. looking at me from my screen while I am about to pass out on the floor. I feel so good.
I can still hear him say “You can do it!”
Another try at Insanity, after a sucessful one and one that I failed miserably at. This time I have about 10kg to lose, give or take. But specially I am focused once again on volume and overall health.
The Fit Test was yersteday. Didn’t had time to input the results. But on a even worse side note I did not exercised today. I woke up super early for a school party for my 3 year old cousin and then arrived late afternoon and had to grab some things, in between all the work I had to finish. My eating routine today was lazy as well. But I feel my metabolism was clearly boosted after only the Fit Test yesterday and that is making me happy to continue. I am also so very sore. I missed feeling this way. I feel this will be the time to conquer inner promises.
Here are the results:
Switch kicks: 81
Power Jacks: 40
Power Knees: 85
Power Jumps: 41
Globe Jumps: 8
Suicide Jumps: 10
Push-up Jacks: 16
Low Plank Oblique: 48 (form was really off tough, I am pretty sure)
Here I go again.
Tomorrow insanity. I am tired of being a quitter.
65 second plank killed me. I am old.
Insanity killed me today. I finished though, but it was so hard. I am not getting enough sleep apparently. And eating enough. Damn it.
Fit Test #1 results in brackets.
Switch kicks: 88 (95) - Bad beginning
Power Jacks: 48 (42)
Power Knees: 100 (70)
Power Jumps: 50 (28)
Globe Jumps: 10 (0)
Suicide Jumps: 15 (13)
(Modified) Push-up Jacks: 22 (18)
Low Plank Oblique: 55 (43)
I feel my technique improves more than numbers. For instance yesterday I paused when I wanted to do some yoga. Also I have been really tired and constipated and I feel I need to fix this. Other than that I am so happy I’ve been able to stick with this and don’t let other evil thoughts change my commitment. In one month I will be swimming and I need to be happy about me and confident about my health. One month to go.
Bad weekend alert. Not only I am not eating enough throughout the day but I also overate on bad stuff yesterday and today. I don’t care though. Insanity was smashed today, and I feel I am getting better on it. I will find a good yoga exercise for tomorrow and I will probably repeat cardio abs again.
I haven’t seen changes in my body as it’s driving me insane. I’m feeling better though, less bloated and heavy. But still. Normally volume is what I seek the most, after feeling great. I don’t care much about numbers on the scale but the results in the mirror are not making me any more confident and that is definitely not positive.
I just switched my breakfast today and that was good. A change in pace is always nice. Today Cardio Power & Resistance and then I will spend the afternoon cleaning my room, so active, active, active.
My body is definitely getting better at keep in pace with Insanity. Even though today’s Cardio Recovery was a pain sometimes, time flew and I actually feel pretty at ease and not that tired. I should probably do some yoga too, I will see if I feel like it in 2 hours. I know it will be tough to feel much better in January, because it is just around the corner, but I will try hard to do so. I just need to focus on eating more and better and drinking more and more water!
It’s 7pm and I still need to eat 1000 calories to reach my daily goal. I really need to get more levels of vitamin A, calcium, iron and potassium. I clearly need to start taking multivitamins. This is what My Fitness Pal is telling me. It seems though as my intake of vitamin C is always reaching levels between 150-200%. I guess that’s fine by me. But I am not supposed to eat more than 31g of fat left and I still should eat more 148g of carbs to reach my goal. Also 27g of protein. God help me.
It’s 4am. My body is going to kill me tomorrow during Cardio Circuit, but it will be worth it. Candice’s body will keep me focused. Like seriously. She’s the sexiest woman alive. And I normally don’t even think blondes are the prettiest. But she wins. Hands over.
