Insanity: beginning phase 2...again

whew. here's a late post for ya! but better late than never :) yesterday i entered phase 2 of Insanity. and it is kicking. my. trash.
because i've been running on good (non-rainy) days, i'm not 100% on track with the calendar/days schedule, but i am still trying to do every workout. 

but so yeah. phase two...it's already killer! ha ha. i thought that maybe the second time around it'd be easier, but nope. it still is hard, my legs still burn, and i still sweat like a pig. it's all sorts of lovely over here when i'm working out. K had the past two days off, and laughs every time he catches me doing them (which is why i try to do them suuper early while he's still sleeping!). but i don't blame him. i'd laugh at me too if i was watching me from a distance :)

my body is aching today and i LOVE that feeling. sometimes i like to pretend my muscles are telling me: dang girl. you worked us out good! ...ha ha! just kidding. but you know that feeling when you're proud because you know you did your best? yeah. on the last circuit (of the max interval circuit-what i did yesterday) you do what are called "plank punches", and MAN it takes all of my will-power to get myself to do 30 seconds of punching, and then just try to hold out the other 30! it makes my shoulders burn to the max.

besides doing crunches after workouts, i have been doing some wall sits. i haven't done them in forever and they burn!

this is how all of my workouts end up. the little babe-ster gets underfoot as soon as the mat comes out. he freaking loves that thing. i'll be laying on it, doing crunches, and B comes crawling up to me at lightning speed and he'll just crawl all the way around my body trying to see and feel more of the mat! it's so funny to watch! i have to distract him with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse to be able to finish my stretching. 


we're pretty excited it's Friday, and are looking forward to watching General Conference tomorrow(click >>here<< to learn more)!

*did you have a good workout this week? ...one that made you almost want to cry?!

  1. How do you like Insanity? Have you done P90X and if so which do you like better? My favorite workout this week was Interval X Plus from P90X. I hear that the Insanity workouts are more intense cardio and not the strength training that P90X has. I don't know. Let me know your thoughts.

    1. oh i think they're both awesome! seriously. but like you said-in different ways. i get a great workout from both. i have P90x and have only done it once, but the reason i haven't started it again is mainly because i gave my chin-up/pull-up bar to my brother! ha ha. random, i know :) and i think i fell in love with using gym weights/having that gym setting (for lifting) so i don't like P90x as much. i just love Insanity overall. it definitely is my favorite because i love to move!

  2. I havent tried insanity, but I would like to because I've heard great things. We are renewing our vows this August, and I need to tone up a bit.
