Long Time No Blog

Today was my first day of Insanity.  I have taken the Insanity challenge, and it lasts for a total of 60 days.  It is 6 days on, 1 day off (Sunday).  My body already feels like jelly, although the workout wasn't as bad as I thought.  Today was the first day, so Pete and I began the first Fit Test.  A fit test in this program consists of eight intense cardio moves, and you count how many of each move you can do in one minute. 

  1. Switch Kicks         107
  2. Power Jacks           45
  3. Power Knees          62
  4. Power Jumps          27
  5. Globe Jumps            5
  6. Suicide Jumps         13
  7. Push up Jacks         15
  8. Low Plank Oblique 51
Not bad for my first time.  I think the hardest was a Power Jump because you have to jump high in the air with your knees up to the side of you and hit your knees with your hands while in the air.  I think the easiest was the Low Plank Oblique, which you get onto the floor push up style but lay on your arms, and kick your knees to your arms.  Overall, my body feels great... like cooked spaghetti!

After we worked out I made a pretty healthy breakfast... this lil man helped me.

First I coked up two leftover spicy sausages, half a leftover hamburger, chopped garlic, spinach, a chopped green tomato and some black olives
 Then I just cracked 5 eggs right into the same pan, and I like to scramble them as they cook, its so much easier and less to clean!
 I cut a pita in half and placed a slice of cheese on each side, and the cooked eggs on top

 Then squirted on some jalapeno mustard and ate it like a dog! It was so super good!!

I realize when I work out I am so much more careful about the calories I put into my body, since I know how hard I worked to burn calories off.  Hopefully this Insanity program helps me get into shape after having PJ, and provides me with motivation to begin running again, something that I haven't done since the Turkey trot and miss dearly.
