Wow!  I made it through Week 1 of Insanity and I survived!

Here are the names of the workout DVD’s:

Plyometric Cardio Circuit
Cardio Power & Resistance
Cardio Recovery
Pure Cardio
Plyometric Cardio Circuit

Here are a couple of the exercises we do:
Switch Kicks (nice)
Power Jacks (not so bad)
Power Knees (I wouldn’t say easy, but not hard)
Power Jumps  (not my favourite)
Globe Jumps (getting better at them)
Suicide Jumps (a killer)
Push-up Jacks (another killer)
Low Plank Oblique (I can’t get my knees to bend that far)
To see what they look like check out the fit test worksheet!

I must say that I am improving a little bit each time I do a work out.  I can go a little bit faster and do the move a little bit better, but today I was tired.  I have to take lots of breaks.  It’s good we don’t do the same workout every day because for me it keeps me motivated to keep going and wondering what we are doing next. 

I have been trying to watch what I eat as well and get enough protein and fibre in my meals, especially the protein in my breakfast after the workout.  I haven’t decided if I will use a protein powder or not.  Maybe in the second month depending on my results.  I have some time to decide. 

Did I write already that on day 5 that I had a bead of sweat fall of my eyebrow and onto my cheek?  Wow.  I have never sweat like that before.  That was for Pure Cardio.  It also happened the next day for Plyo Cardio Circuit workout.  They are probably the most intense workouts.  The Cardio Recovery is probably my favourite because you do the moves slow and very controlled.  But don’t be fooled, you still sweat, get out of breath, and feel it after the workout!  It is a log of squat holds, which are always tough.

I’m not sure how much I will blog about Insanity, but every once in a while I will give you an update.  Maybe once a week!  Last week I lost 2 lbs from my starting week.  On Jan 17th we do our second fit test and take new pictures, so I will definitely have an update that day!  I’m sure I will beat my record for the fit test moves even if it is only by one more each! 

5 more days left to go of the second week.  I know I can do it.  Just got to plow through it.  I wonder if this Sunday my body will miss the workout?  It didn’t yesterday!
