"Insanity" - not a misnomer.

Monday, October 26, 2015

Since I got Beachbody On Demand, I've been playing around with all the different programs. It has quite a lot of full programs as well as sneak peeks of newer ones that aren't available for "free" on demand. I did a couple of 21 Day Fix workouts (enjoyed), and then I was like, "Ha. What if I did Insanity? That would be hilarious of me." So I tried a few of them, making an understanding with myself that I didn't HAVE TO complete every rep and taking a water break in between water breaks was totally fine.

I messed around with Insanity a little, doing 1 or 2 a week mixed in with everything else (all of which was much easier) and then I just figured, "Oh heck, why not just do it?" So. I took the official Insanity workout calendar and changed it up enough to give myself some days where I could rest or chill with friends after work as needed (because as a single person living alone, my life cannot just be going to work and going home to work out and then going to bed. It just cannot.), and printed it out and taped it to the wall in the hallway. And so far I've stuck to it.

I think I may be addicted to the intense endorphin high, to be honest. And that feeling while you're doing it, when your body is like "You better not do one more!" and you do anyway and you feel your face tighten in a grimace and you do another one and another one -- and when you're finished, you know you really DID something. THAT. I am addicted to that.

I started working on being better about what I eat and doing mostly Starch Solution foods, with the occasional Califa Salted Caramel iced coffee (or whatever) here and there. Cooking at night, remembering to bring home my lunch containers so I could refill and bring them back the next day, etc. I don't really expect to lose much weight, because the PCOS really seems to be affecting that lately. ...But I feel so good, I'm not even gonna worry about that.

    That is awesome! It's a really intense program, and whether or not the PCOS will let you lose the weight, you'll be much fitter, healthier, and generally stronger (and likely slimmer as well) than you were when you started.
