I started today off with a bang .. I went for a 20min run at 5am
and then I did a few arm and ab exercises then i made my (pineapple/spinach/beetroot/grapes/carrot) smoothie and I had that for breakfast. I had rice and goat meat soup for lunch. I’m really trying to push myself through my insanity sessions. Today’s session of insanity max 30 was .
17 days until my birthday. It’s that time of the month and I think it’s making me quite emotional. We’re halfway through the year and I’ve been working out consistently for at least 5 months. I’m struggling to see the progress I’ve made and its beginning to weigh me down. I feel as though my body should be in better shape. I start to see changes and then I take a few days off and then my body suddenly reverts back to fat Felicity. It’s quite disheartening when you see that all your hard work can be cancelled out by eating badly for a few days. It’s so hard to lose weight honestly. I had to go onto instagram to gain some perspective about weightloss results. It takes most people about two years for the body to adjust accordingly. I gave myself a target of December 2017 because I knew that if i managed to work out /eat properly consistently for 12 months then it ceases to be a diet program but it rather becomes my lifestyle . I went for insanity max 30 today and honestly honestly honestly I’m convinced that Shaun T has set out to kill me…Laard Gad🤧🤧🤧🤧🤧.
My birthday draws closer and I have less than 3 weeks left. My body isn’t where i want it to be. Monday’s session of insanity max 30 was good but I’m going to need to push my self harder if i want to see the desired results. Insanity max 30 is killing me😷😷😷😷😷. My endurance levels are being pushed to the max.. it isn’t called insanity max 3 for nothing. It’s completely insane and my body is maxed out constantly. This is definitely the hardest workout. I’m trying to make better food choices so the smoothies are back.
My lunch was kenkey with fried cassava fish (i must do better)
Since I’m running a tight shift until my birthday I can’t afford to take any days off. I do know that my body needs to recover from insanity max 30 so I decided to do a 30 minute slow jog with my 2kg dumbbells. I then did 50 narrow squats, 20 weighted lunges,30 crunches, 30 single leg crunches and a few other random exercises. I will be doing my fruit/veg shopping today and I’m looking forward to that. 😚😚😚😚
Today I decided to incorporate my 2kg dumbbells into my insanity routine. I generally avoid most of the burpee infused exercise moves so instead of just standing around doing nothing I did some (dumbbell presses with lunges / various other dumbbell motions that Jillian Michaels taught me). Insanity seems to be getting harder each day and Shaun T seems to lure you into a false sense of security and then he sends you into a state of real confusion mixed with anguish 😔😔😔😔.
I have two weeks left and I know that I’ll miss being challenged physically on a daily basis.
I’ve been so tied up with exam revision and work that I’ve put updating my insanity max 30journey on a back burner. I have been exercising though.. no time for back sliding 🤚🤚🤚🤚. I’ve missed 3 days out of 17. Yay me!! 💃💃💃. I won a 50m women’s race at the Kiddy Mile Race 🏃🏃🏃🏃..i won a Garmin vivomove watch (👏👏👏round of applause) . The last time that i recorded my max out time was two weeks ago and I maxed out at the 9mins 15 seconds mark. I noticed that my body wasn’t changing because I was eating terribly over the weekends thereby undoing all my insanity efforts. I haven’t done so in the last two weeks and I’m really starting to see my body evolve. People are starting to notice 💃💃💃💃💃. I’m beginning to look good naked which is the ultimate aim. I’ve become more conscious of my food choices.. I’m not on a diet per se but I’m eating to nourish my body not because I love the taste of food. It’s been difficult avoiding my default foodien ways 🙈🙈🙈. I’m becoming more motivated as my birthday draws closer. I need to find a birthday dress 🤔🤔🤔.
So last night’s session of insanity was positively deadly. Shaun T has managed to devise all types of pushups. I have barely mastered a basic pushup but Shaun T has added all these extra levels of complexities to pushups … Half of yesterday’s session was centred around pushups!! BUT Why?
Why is he trying to embarrass me like this? This second month of insanity max 30 is ridiculously intense. My entire body aches from the ordeal that Shaun T put me through last night. I have spent this entire week complaining but I’m sorry there is simply no other way that I can speak about these sessions of insanity max 30 .
I had waakye for breakfast and jollof rice and grilled chicken for Lunch (yes I’m aware that this doesn’t constitute a healthy balanced diet). Next week I’m going to start making my smoothies again.( I promise promise). 20 days until my birthday and I must wear a size 10 dress …. operation size 10 is in full force.
