Just a quick update to let you all know that I am still "pushing play" on Insanity every day. It's been a bit of a struggle this week (sooo busy) and next week is going to be WAY worse because I am working at the kid's school almost every day in addition to having softball/baseball games almost every night. Then the next week is Grant's birthday and Brooklyn's "Student of the Month" luncheon/festivities at school.
On top of that crazy schedule, I have poison ivy on my right arm and the INSANE amounts of sweat I produce during Insanity (in a house that is around 80 degrees b/c we refuse to turn the A/C on yet) makes the rash WAY itchier. Basically I'd like to claw my arm off after about 5 minutes. Ugh!
I had a great workout at the gym Tuesday with my peeps! They got new weights (yay!) but silly me...rather than loading up my bar with what I normally use, I decided to just grab a bar that someone had already loaded up and left laying there. It was 35 pounds total, which is about 5 pounds more than I usually lift on the bar. No biggie right? WRONG! When doing about 100 bicep curls that was TOO much weight...I was struggling big time...but I just did as many as I could, rested for a second and then hopped back in. It felt G.R.E.A.T!!! to be lifting again and feeling that intense BURN in my muscles!
As much as I am INFATUATED with Insanity...I do miss my P90X strength-training workouts. I am really looking forward to getting back to them after this round of Insanity and I think by then Matt will be ready to join me again. He broke a rib about a month ago and has been in "recovery" mode since then...but he mentioned to me the other day that he's really anxious to start working out again. Woohoo! It's always so much more fun and motivating when your partner does the workouts with you!
Well guys, that's about it for now. I will weigh in on Monday and see if I've dropped any more weight. Right now I am 11 pounds from my goal. How about you? How far from your goal are you?
