Insainty day 3 pushing thru

Ok, I don't plan on blogging about EVERY workout. I just had to share quickly a thought about today's workout. Today I did Cardio Power and Resistance.

I CANNOT YET DO A WALKING PUSHUP. I just can't! I tried and fell to the ground. However, I CAN do a pushup on my knees (girl style ish). I just wanted to encourage anyone who is as out of shape as I apparently am. I did not quit when I couldn't do something everyone else was doing, I just changed it up and as I get stronger I will do a regular pushup and then the walking kind.

Also, I had to change up the Power Squats. I can only do about 5 of those, so I stepped to the side and did a squat then to the other side and did a squat. I cannot wait till I can do them the way I'm supposed to but I'm not quitting and I hope you don't give up on whatever challenges you either.

Shout out to Biggest Losers Fitness Ridge and their staff for helping me beieve in myself and pushing forward. They helped teach me some moves like I stated above, whenever I couldn't do something exactly like the trainer. Progress not perfection is my mission. I am stronger than I think and I will reach my goals. You can too!

Happy Independence Day!!!

Insanity day 2

Today I did the second day of Insanity,Polymetric Cardio Circut. It was INSANE, really, I could have vomited. :) but in a good way.

It was of course really challenging, and I basically failed miserably, but I also kept my going and sweat like nobody's business. I couldn't keep up, of course and it was killer! I only spent one second though feeling like I was too fat to and out of shape to be doing it. Shaun T is a super great motivator and makes you thinkg you HAVE to keep going and you CAN do it. I know EVENTUALLY I will get stronger and do better. I want to improve and I will. I don't care if I have to do 10 sets of the 60 days.... I'm totally into it! I was sore this morning and almost skippd it. I'm so glad I didn't!

I do have to say I'm a little bit oddly exhausted today, not sure why, I am looking forward to going to see some fireworks with my guys tonight but I also feel so tired I could have gone to bed at 3pm. :/ I am contimplating taking something for energy. I thingk Jillian Michaels fat burner helped me with that some time in the past.

My diet was not perfect today and it won't be tomorrow either, although it was much better that the past few months have been. Tomorrow is the holiday and our first BBQ of the season. I won't spend the whole day eating like the end is near, but I will have a yummy meal and move on.

Happy 4th of JULY!!!

Today I decided to get back on track!!! Weighing in at 227 pounds. That's up 13 from the BL contest I won this spring :/
I just completed the Insanity fit test. My husband is going to take it to his work to do with some guys there, so I plan on only doing it this week and then doing some P90X and still Zumba and running when possible. I still plan on doing the Insanity fit test every two weeks, I figure it will still be a good fitness gauge, instead of just using the scale.

So here are my 33 year old 227 pound results :) LoL by the way I love Shaun T! And he is teaching my 5 year old son how to be very encouraging ;)

Fit Test

1. Switch Kicks r,l=1. 50
