Last Official Day of Insanity (60 days)

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

Hello,


Today was our official last day of the 60 day program Insanity. We will continue to do this program along now with P90X (hybrid). I must say that it was very refreshing to complete something that was very challenging, yet healthy to do in such a short time each day (except for Sunday. That was our assigned day of rest).


I think that we improved our cardio tremendously and lost a couple of inches here and there. Here is just one of the “tests” we had to do during the Fit Test. Each segment was a minute long and there were (8) different exercises. This is called Power jumps. The concept is to jump as high as you can, using your core and landing softly and safely. Doing as many repetitions as you can within a minute. This was our last Fitness Test. We had to do a total of (6) throughout the course of 2 months. Each month trying to improve our repetitions from the last test. I am proud to say that we both improved and kicked a$$ this last test. Yeah us.

Hello,


So today was one heck of a struggle getting through my workout. “Boy do I hate working out”. (You will never hear me say that. No matter how hard the workout is.) I, unlike Jo-Anne, never looked like I was unhealthy or overweight, but I sure did struggle with it mentally like most people, especially women do. I battled with my body image for more than 10 years. Always wanting to look that “special way”, but reached a point to where I look damn good and ain’t no one gonna tell me anything different. (Two snaps to the side and ending with a circle.)

I have always been active and encourage others to be as well, not just because it helps people keep up with me, but because it is good for you and keeps you younger. As I get older, I realize that being healthy and active will not only keep me sane, but make me stronger, help me live longer (a goal all people should strive to master) and hopefully not need botox.

So tomorrow is another day, another workout and another day of happiness. Cheers to you and your health.
