Hi Friends!

Ahhh, Saturday!  I’ve been waiting for this all week!  😉  There’s a lot on the agenda today, as we’re trying to get the house back into tip-top shape.  That’s ok, we have a fun dinner with friends planned for this evening that we can look forward to.  We just have to get all of our work done before then.  It’s always nice to have something to look forward to.

My body was exhausted from this past week.  I so could have stayed in bed for another hour or two, but I knew that if I didn’t get up when I did my workout would never happen.  So, I dragged myself out of bed and hopped into my workout clothes.  Then, made Rob a little breakfast in bed before I got my sweat on.

He’s  lucky guy, no?  😉

Once Rob was settled in with his breakfast in bed, I “pushed play” for some Insanity Pure Cardio.  There are times I’m breathing so hard that I feel like my heart might come out of my chest or I want to wring Shawn T’s neck for torturing me (can you love and hate someone at the same time?), but I keep reminding myself that beach weather is right around the corner.

NOW is the time to burn that fat and get my body into the best shape it’s ever been.  I don’t want to be scrambling a week or two before we put the boat into the water.  I want to already be confident in my skin by then, with my only worry being which bikini to choose from. 🙂

So, I worked my tush off and came up with a nice burn!

Now, it’s time to get to all of that house work, but I’m glad that my workout is behind me and I don’t have to worry about when I’ll fit it in or be frustrated with myself that it just never happened.  Did you get your sweat on today?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hey Guys!

My internal alarm woke me this morning at 5:15 AM.  YIKES!  That’s early for this night owl!

Early Workout

I go to bed every night excited about the following day’s planned workout.  I’m even more excited to see my results at the end of the next 2-3 months.  If they’re anything like my brother’s results I’ll be ecstatic!  Most of us want to see the changes immediately.  I mean, like yesterday, “immediately”.  😉  It would be nice if it happened that way, but we all know that transformation comes with consistent hard work over time.  There’s no amount of wishing that’s going to get you to the finish line.  It takes effort, but it will be worth it!

I knew going into this that it wouldn’t be easy.  I mean, have you seen the Insanity infomercials?    The program is no joke! There are no limits to your success if you don’t allow failure to be an option though.

 

 I was worried about my knees at first, but made sure to buy a special mat that protects them during my jumps.  I also LISTEN to my body.  If something is bothering me I improvise the movements.  No need to be a hero!  It’s me against myself.  I know that I’m working hard and not taking any shortcuts.

I worked HARD this morning!  It all started with Insanity Cardio Power & Resistance followed by Les Mills Pump Challenge.

 Here are my  stats for each of the workouts:

Cals Burned

My arms are sore, but I’m feeling great!  I love getting my workout in first thing in the morning.  That way, there’s no added worry during the day about when I’ll fit it in or what obstacles might come up (working late, feeling lazy, emergencies, exhaustion, etc).

Now, I can just sit pretty at my desk and know that when I leave the office behind I have a full night ahead of me to enjoy with my man.  😉

Have you been bringing it in your workouts?  What time of day do you like to workout?

Hope you’re having a great day!
