One month of insanity

Today marks the end of the first month of insanity max 30. This month has had its fair share of ups and downs. Β I am currently juggling law school,full time work,mothering my son and insanity max 30. I started the month off by making smoothies daily and then life happened. Β I’m trying Β get into somewhat of a routine and I’m failing miserablyπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ. My lifestyle is very haphazard 🀣🀣🀣🀣. I’m trying to eat well but I have days when I simply can’t be bothered to count calories πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘.. girls abre! This month I assumed the new position of soccer mum because my son loves football and he’s in school’s football team. I’ve spent 2 out of 4 of the last weekends being a soccer mum and I’m loving it. Isaiah has shown an interest in the insanity sessions so he’s started working out with me occasionally.

Is this how soccer mums dress? I need to Google it

I’ll check my measurements on Monday to see if there’s been any improvements.

I wasn’t in the mood to do insanity today but I went anyway and my effort level averaged at about 60%. I’ll try and make it up by going for a run tomorrow morning Β (So help me God). I have 5 weeks until my birthday I’m considering doing a complete overhaul of my eating habits (easier said than done obviously)

Roll on month two of insanity max 30

Bad day in nutritionπŸ˜”πŸ˜”πŸ˜”

I ate badly yesterday and I feel terrible about it. I had an insatiable appetite 😒😒😒😒. I had Chinese food for dinner.. i mean how??? Insanity max 30 routines are becoming easier to bear … i chose the word easier to bear for a reason. The routine isn’t getting easier.. insanity max 30 never gets easier but your body begins to get used to the moves until Shaun T decides to give it a new twist. There are still certain moves that i struggle with (more like don’t attempt at all)…

After insanity shot

I’ve been so tied up with exams and work that I’ve been unable to update the blog. I have been exercising religiously though. Β I’ve missed 3 days out of 17 . I’ve been trying to stay consistent. Two weeks ago i won a women’s 50m run at the kiddy mile race

Yay me.. I won a Garmin vivomove watch πŸƒπŸƒπŸƒπŸƒ..

I’ve stopped stuffing my face over the weekend which was my own self destructive way of undoing all the work done at insanity. My body was not succumbing to the rigours of the insanity routine and I realised it was due to my diet. I have started tracking my meals on my fitness pal and it has been quite interesting to see the amount of calories in Ghanaian dishes. I have been acting in contravention of my natural foodien ways πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘.

I’m beginning to see some changes in my body and I’m motivated to do more .

New Dawn

I missed Monday’s session of insanity because I simply couldn’t be bothered. I went for insanity max 30 last night , my max out time was at the 5 minute mark which is a stark retrogression from Friday’s time of 9 minutes 15 secs. However, I was impressed with how much more of the moves I managed to do, the routine is definitely not getting easier but I’m working harder because I’m in desperate need of results. My birthday is in June and I must be a sweet size 10 by then, this is imperative. I’m suddenly feeling invigorated to work hard because my body is not even close to my body goals. This is obviously quite sad but I’m trying channel it into working harder. It’s obvious that I need to make some drastic changes to my diet. I’m not seeing the results i crave because you cannot out exercise a bad diet. My diet isn’t the worst but it sure isn’t the best. I need to be more conscious of my food choices. I’m going to have to start meal prepping regularly. I know how important a healthy diet is to achieving weight loss goals but I’ve been trying to bypass that crucial part. My food choices during the weekends are honestly the worst… I constantly undermine my weekly insanity efforts by having one too many cheat meals over the weekend. It’s a new dawn indeed.

I attempted to go through the motions of insanity max 30 but I failed woefully. Β I could barely keep up.. i think exam stress is finally catching up with me.. my mind is constantly on fire and exercise takes a lot of mind control

I finished the session but my effort levels were at an all time lowπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ.

(Maybe I’m simply lazy)

Girls abre wai…

Erratic Tuesdays

I did a 20 minute session today(missed the first 10 minutes)unfortunately (family emergency). I tried my best to keep up with the rest of the routine in order to make up for lost time. I enjoyed today’s session because the final segment focused more on the abs ( who wouldn’t want superb abs) .

My eating habits haven’t improved.

I had jollof rice and grilled chicken for breakfast (i can feel your judgement through the skin)

Lunch was waakyr

I had grilled tilapia with pepper for dinner 😍😍😍😍😍😍.

Everyday is a struggle because I have an unhealthy relationship with food πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ. Trying to break the cycle of fatness..

Hello Monday

I had the weekend off so my body had time to recuperate. I went into insanity max 30 on Monday with some renewed vim bi! I was ready to go… I felt my body pushing itself, I eventually maxed out at 8 minutes 2 seconds. Β It’s a few seconds improvement from Friday Β (improvement is always a good sign).

I have eaten quite badly over the weekend. All the food I ate was calorie laden.. ( I’m too ashamed to share the exact details with you πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ)

My aim is to try and ensure that my good days far outweigh my bad days because I’m the type of woman who puts on weight by the mere sight of fatty foods 😲😲😲😲😲.
