Week 3 – Insanity – DONE :)

Standard

This was a bumpy week for me. When things are not totally alligned at home, it’s hard for me to hit on all 8 cylinders when I’m training or otherwise physically committed to something. My other litmus test is WordScramble. I play with my sister & most of the time, I beat her. True. So, when I lose to her, it’s usually a reflection of something askew at home. I’m not gonna air any dirty duds & it’s all good now, but it usually takes me about a week to get my head straight after things become askew. Cryptic.

ANYwho. Let’s move on to the real and the now, shall we? Well, at least Insanity Week 3 that is. My body was just tired. I realize that the more I get into it, the better I get at the exercises, so my efforts are stronger. I seriously thought I pulled a muscle yesterday, but it was just muscle fatigue. I love the structure of the program – warm-up – which, I’m sorry, that is a killer warm-up, dude. Then that stretch. Feels so good. I love that. Then, after all that, it’s time to get after it. I have gotten to where I can listen to Sean T more than looking at the screen, which helps a lot – I can focus on my form & do the best I can without feeling intimidated by the people working out with him.

I’ve gotten a few good runs in & I’m thrilled about that. Don’t tell my quads, but tomorrow is an Insanity off day, so I’m THINKING – how about I wake up & ride AND run? A little visit to the brick workout…I’m thinking yes.

I also looked at my calendar & realized the Rocket Chix tri I signed up for at the end of July will be happening without me. I will be out of town. That is irritating. I was looking forward to doing a women’s specific tri. Oh, that’s right, I’m gonna do my own tri – yes, I am. I will set up my own little transition area in the garage & swim, bike, run. Maybe I’ll get my daughters to jump in the pool & kick me in the face a couple of times to keep it real. heehee…

So, Insanity is definitely keeping me focused. The other night, I thought I could go out for a run, but as soon as I started, my quads felt like cinderblocks. NOT cool. I just circled around & came home, much to hubs’ shock. I just don’t do that. I know I’m getting stronger & I love that. I need to focus more on my nutrition because I have been waking up ravenous around midnight or one & I know it’s related to not having enough during the day. And the last thing I wanna do is put calories in my stomach when I’m trying to go to sleep!!! But I do hate that feeling. It sucks. It reminds me of my childhood & going to bed hungry. uncool. sigh…

Speaking of food, I made round steak & gravy, sweet potato casserole & a homemade strawberry shortcake for dinner tonight for my family. It was a big hit. I ate strawberry shortcake for dinner. I have to be in the mood for meat. We ate out last night & I had a steak, sweet potato & green beans & Stella…yum.

God is good. He keeps on blessing me & I keep trying to be obedient to Him in all that I do. I just wanna make Him happy. Be thankful in everything. Peace.
