Weight: 166.0

Insanity is done; max interval plyometrics. I am trying to think about what to do after V pulls me through this last part of Insanity. When I get back from my trip, i'll need to buckle down and make some commitments. I was thinking about doing Insanity over again, because I love Shaun T, except every two or three days instead of every day, and adding in running, cycling and yoga DVDs or other workouts on the other days. I'm really itching to use my bike since there are a few of you here that are making me jealous with your speedy cycle work! LOL.

Now I am sipping on some coffee at work and trying to get organized for the workday.

I am once again going through golf withdrawal. If only it would stop raining. Ball is scheduled for tonight; we'll see if it gets cancelled - I think it's too wet to play, so what should I do instead? Oh? Watch True Blood season 5, you say?

Ok.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Hows the insanity results for you! When I finished insanity I didnt lose much weight, but I did lose about 2 inches and my legs have never been stronger.


grannyannie on 07/18/2012:
Good idea to have so much variety to your workouts. Wish I could ride my bike (instead of just the spin bike) but the weather won't cooperate.

Enjoy your trip with your mom! Should be interesting.


thenewMLE on 07/18/2012:
I LOVE my bike!! Holly peaked my interest when I first got here and I really credit that for the decent scale movement. I have never done a DVD workout and wanted to get BBL and do it with my daughter, but I bought a sofa instead!! The price of the sofa was one thing, but it changed the configuration of my room and I don't have any more floor space. I can't even lay on the floor without hitting the sofa, the huge ottoman or the TV. I'm still not giving up on eventually doing the BBL, but I have to find somewhere to do it. I also bought a zumba xbox kinnect game and now I don't have enough depth for the camera to record the motions. Oh, well, at least I can ride my bike!!! (do it, do it, do it.....!!!!)


V on 07/18/2012:
Creating your own program sounds like a winner to me! There are so many classes to choose from including the extra ones Max Sports and Max Upper, not to mention Insane Abs and Fast and furious.. I am def doing another round for sure..My next program is Asylum, depending on how much I like it, I might do Asylum 2 and then do another round of Insanity.. Then again I told Sweetpea that I might do Insanity with her(I think Aug 13th is her ETA on starting)Yep, LOVES me some Shaun T <3 Hahahaha ;)


LeakingLife on 07/19/2012:
Good going on all your insanity, golf, etc--hope today is a good one too!

This glutamine supplement is the cat's meow; I am not nearly as sore as I expected to be after jumping back into Insanity.

Max Interval Circuit today. My knees are giving me some trouble, and I really hate planks. That about sums it up

I did some thinning out of the suitcase last night and tried another dry run to see if everything would fit. I think i'm getting closer! LOL! A few key things still to do (like exchange some cash and line up house-care) and i'm ready freddy! The next three weeks until lift-off will fly by. Must also remember: not everything has to turn into an argument with your Mother. Let her be right if she's so darned stubborn about it. Even though you know YOU are the one who's right

Ok, so, not even my back hurts today! I just think this is so great. I noticed a little bit of a stuffy nose this morning, so I took a decongestant STAT. Hopefully it won't give me any trouble.

I have a ton of energy right now, but by the time I leave to go home after work I know i'll be dragging my bum behind me. I need to remember to run a few errands before I hit the couch.

Geez.

I just remembered that I forgot to take anything out of the freezer for dinner tonight.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 07/17/2012:
Are you going overseas? You must be really excited! I love the glutamine, it definitely helps.


V on 07/17/2012:
Yes that Glutamine is the bee's knees ;) I hope one day soon you will like planks just a tad bit, as far as the knees go, Tiger Balm them or get some "Ben Gay Zero Degrees" This stuff if amazing, you keep it in the freezer and man does it feel good when you roll it on <3. have a good one my friend, keep up the good work..Just remember you can modify the moves for the jumping portion if your knees are troubling you tomorrow..


grannyannie on 07/17/2012:
Where are you visiting? Hope your knees get stronger and give you less trouble. Also hope your stuffy nose doesn't turn into anything.


LeakingLife on 07/17/2012:
Sounds like a good day! Good to know your body is cooperating for the most part--good going!


sweetpea1977 on 07/17/2012:
Thats great news about the glutamine!

haha, your relationship with your mom sounds like the one I have with my dad. I find it much easier to just let him think he's right even though Im right! :)


nunnermack on 07/17/2012:
Super! Where are you going? I always end up paying the 'overweight' fee.


nunnermack on 07/17/2012:
Ooooo...I just saw where you are going. I am SO very jealous!! My ancestors are from there.

Insanity Fit Test yesterday, and Max Conditioning this morning. Was very pleased with the workout this morning; got through more of the workout without having to take those extra breaks that I dread having to take. Also, Conditioning includes my favorite move - the Diamond Jack - so I was insanely stoked about that! LOL, a few war cries later and it was time to shower and change.

The rest of my weekend was alright. I didn't make it into the city to see Dad because my car is making funny noises so I need to get it looked at before I take it out on the highway. Instead, I went grocery shopping and picked up the first episode of Big Brother from a friend who taped it. It rained all day yesterday so I was able to procrastinate about the yardwork even further ;)

I thought the humidity would break once it started to rain, and it may have a bit, but this morning is just as humid as it ever was. Blurgh! So hard to breathe. I'm glad to be out of the house at least; the furnace started up (yeah, not even kidding) and before I could shut it off, it blasted hot, humid air throughout the whole house. Sort of smells like a wet sock in there right now.

Anyways, off to do my job!

Breakfast - Glutamine, smoothie with 1/2 banana, spinach, OJ and yogurt. Coffee!

Lunch - Cafeteria (sandwich?)

Snack - yogurt, pudding

Dinner - leftover chicken nuggets, tossed salad, maybe a fried egg?

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

sweetpea1977 on 07/16/2012:
Thanks for the vote of confidence. :) Good job on your workout! I dread taking those breaks too, makes me feel like failure! I know Im not though, because I kick ass in other workouts!!


thenewMLE on 07/16/2012:
We just commented on the intense humidity even while it is raining! Why would your furnace kick on? That has to be a nasty smell with the dampness and dust now heated up! Congrats on your Insanity test!! I admire y'all for not only being able to do it once, but day after day. Thanks for the nice comment on my photos!


V on 07/16/2012:
Yep I did indeed ditch it, not intentionally, I just didn't want it to interfere with my actual workout..LOL so you like the Diamond Jack :) Do you like the high low punch? My obliques are screaming, boy are they really going to be begging later when I get a Cardio Ab class in..LOL


Umpqua on 07/16/2012:
Great work starting back up with Insanity, I'm glad you're enjoying it :)


hollybelle on 07/17/2012:
Humidity is the bane of my existence these days! Good job kicking off your Insanity program!

Went to a baseball game last night; enjoyed some mini fireworks and free ice cream sandwiches ;)

Max Plyo this morning!

Ugh, not looking forward to yardwork... good thing I have a 5:45 p.m. tee-off time scheduled for 9 holes of awesomeness LOL.

Working on the packing list; slowly getting everything I need... today was ensuring I had something for my ears during the long plane trip; plugs and decongestant for the win! The kitchen table is starting to pile up with must-haves for the trip. Like immodium. And gravol. heehee.

Maybe yardwork can wait. I feel like doing a fake pack to see if everything will fit.

My sleepless nights lately have finally caught up to me; it hasn't helped that i've had to sleep on the main floor since Sunday due to the major humidity floating around. Last night I fell asleep on the couch at 8pm and didn't wake up until this morning...

I did manage to get a few things done after work, like getting my international driving license, and picking up a few more items of summer clothes from Giant Tiger. I was going to make a batch of crockpot meatballs, but the city was absolutely nuts during rush hour so I changed my mind because I would have had to pick up all the ingredients for it somewhere.

Supper was some chicken and tossed salad. And then I fell asleep.

Max Interval Circuit this morning; for some reason, I slugged my way through it and took a lot of breaks. I still don't feel quite right. Not quite awake. Strange. Maybe I slept for too long?

Interesting observation: My ab muscles feel tight. Like, I Am A SuperStar Dancer or Stunt Actress Tight. When I look in the mirror, I don't see tight abs. But that's ok. They're there somewhere!

TGIF! On tap for the weekend:

- some waxing action ;)

- lots more insanity (max interval plyometrics and the fit test)

- crockpot meatballs

- yardwork (grass cutting and weed pulling - oi, the garden is awful)

- big city visit - Dad and Costco

- hopefully a game of golf in there somewhere, i'm going through golf withdrawal :(

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

V on 07/13/2012:
Busy weekend ahead girl..As far as the class this morning, we all have our days when we are feeling sluggish/tired/lethargic, you get the point..The humidity,lack of sleep, upping the intensity levels can all affect your performance..We do what we can do ya know <3 Have a wonderful weekend!

Max Recovery... insert insane giggling here...

I really don't know what part of this class has to do with recovery lol!

My greatest love, pushups, were prevalent once again this morning. Pushups, planks. Every part of my body took a beating. It was really hard to keep up/finish the exercise segments in their entirety, but i'm hoping that the further into month 2 I get, the easier these workouts will become.

I played slo-pitch last night; another win on the books and two pretty sweet hits by moi. One hard line drive along the first base line (i'm an off-field single hitter), and then I cranked one past the center and left-fielders. That one surprised me, but it was a pitch I couldn't resist and I absolutely kicked the snot out of the ball.

I haven't been wearing my cleats when I play, and last night I was reminded of how bad of an idea that is. I nearly wiped out on the shale twice wearing my cutting-the-grass sneakers.

Snuck out of the dugout after the game while my team stayed behind to shoot the breeze, went home and ate a quick succession of pb sandwiches. Unsure how exactly that happened as my memory is so foggy. With that, and a helping of Doritos, my day wasn't the best, eating-wise.

Today I have to take care of some housekeeping items. The weather was iffy yesterday with clouds rolling in, so I didn't drive into the city. It has to be done today after work. And then I need to purchase tickets for Russell Peters. He'll be coming to a city near me in September and I can't wait!!! I hope they're not sold out yet. Has anyone seen this comedian? I have two of his DVDs; he is hilarious!

I'm hearing all these "recovery" exercises are still really tough. What's up with that? Mislabeling I guess. Good for you for doing it!


V on 07/12/2012:
The problem is Shaun has no clue what "recovery" means..LOL we sill def have huge ass arms though, they will call us the "Tricep Twins" ;) LOL That class was redonkulous and i will def be better prepped next week, ya could have warned me..Hahahah


V on 07/12/2012:
P.S. Congrats slugger!!


sweetpea1977 on 07/13/2012:

Congrats on the game last night!

Max Plyo and Cardio Conditioning classes are done, and my calves are starting to feel the burn.

Also, I almost threw up during the conditioning class.

But I feel ok now...

I have a busy day ahead of me... I need to complete the process for my international driver's license, pick up a few items from Giant Tiger, and play slo-pitch tonight. There's also another bbq with friends, but i'm not too keen on going. There's this guy, and he keeps txting and asking 15 million questions and is starting to really annoy me. I am too independent and have a low tolerance for people who come across as 'needy'. So I think I will avoid that tonight.

Avoidance breeds unfamiliarity, if you weren't sure where I was going with that.

We still have a heat-wave going on here; unfortunately i've run out of summery clothes, which necessitates the trip into the city to Giant Tiger to pick up a few pairs of capris. Hopefully i'll get lucky and find some nicer pairs; you never know what's going to be in stock...

Today i'm wearing heavy black dress pants. Ugh.

The positive about that is at least it's covering my hairy legs. Time for a leg waxing night!

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 07/11/2012:
You're doing well with the workouts. I love sore muscles! Hope it cools off where you are.


getmebackto150 on 07/11/2012:
good job on the workout! I totally agree with you... guys that come accross as needy are no good... Have a good day!

hope you have a good afternoon! Oh...not of fan of needy people either...Giant Tiger? never heard of it!


hollybelle on 07/11/2012:
Have a good one. Is there any chance the guy isn't "needy" but just socially awkward?


V on 07/11/2012:
Stage 5 clinger huh?? Run Legcramps, RUN!! LOL..Hey great that you got your classes done, nice work..I am so looking forward to Max Recovery tomorrow, i need an extended stretch..I might even add a yoga class if Shaun gets psycho..Hahahaha! Yeah I guess since Turbo Fire had alot of boxing and P90x was a pushup/pullup clinic, I have become comfortably numb to it, although Shaun take it to the next level and then some...Hahahaha Whatever you do this evening, I hope you have fun <3

Had a great day yesterday all told; how easily I forget how exercise brings about these highly energetic, feel-good moods...

Breakfast - Glutamine, smoothie; coffee

Lunch - potatoes and ham

Afternoon - Yogurt and fresh fruit

Dinner - chicken fajita and spicy potato wedges (PS SPICY) (PSS VERY SPICY) (AKA HOLY SH*T!)

Other - 2 glasses pinot grigio, 1.5 litres water

Evening - peanut butter sandwich

I need to get more veggies in. This is pretty good though, considering last week it was all about the cinammon buns, toast and lasagna! Oh, those were the days!

Max Plyometrics today! I, um, slept in this morning, so i'll be doing the class this evening. I had a hard time falling asleep last night - might have been the wine LOL.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

sweetpea1977 on 07/10/2012:
Good luck on the Max Plyo today. I just about threw up at the end off the Plyo Cardio Circuit. Good grief I suck at cardio circuits!

Weee...eew! I am feeling pumped from the Insanity Max class this morning! Unfortunately, I snoozed a little too long and had to rush to make it to work in time; not a great way to start the workday, but i'll get through it anyways ;)

I was covered in sweat once my workout was over; it look a while (even with a cool shower) to get my body temp back to normal. It doesn't help that today is the hottest summer day so far in 2012! I think it was over 30 degrees (celsius) even before 8am! A scorcher! Would be a great day to golf ;) too bad I have to work.

I have a myriad of things to get done at work; how the work piles up when there's no one there to do it! I'm not quite feeling like getting back into the groove of things, but i'm trying to stay focused and get some things off my desk. Hopefully I won't feel the need for an afternoon nap and will be able to burn through the workday quickly in order to get myself back home where I also have a to-do list to accomplish.

Better get at it then! Have a great day everyone :O)

Yay! Good job on the Insanity! When I ride my bike in hot weather like we have been having I cannot cool down either. Good thing is heavy "after burn" burns calories, I think!


sweetpea1977 on 07/09/2012:
Yaaay Insanity!!

Stay cool!!


V on 07/09/2012:
I am def NOT hitting snooze more than twice tomorrow..I usually wait til I stop sweating before I hop in the shower..That means I have to be up and working out before 7..I am going to shoot for 6:45 start time..Sounds good right?? LOL I hope your shift is quick and painless, I am sure the afterburn will keep ya going ;)


Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/10/2012:
You do Insanity videos?? Sounds fantastic & like they really raise your mood! :-) i hope you get everyting done!

Back from holidays and man do I wish I didn't have to head back to work tomorrow LOL! I feel so happy and relaxed. Can't wait to retire if this is how i'll feel :) Only 20-some years to go...

Already starting to pack for the Hungary trip in August; I have such a tiny carry-on and since that's all i'm taking besides a day pack, it's going to be a hard lesson in travelling light. But it's better than having to lug around an oversize suitcase everywhere we go! It's hard to decide what is essential and what isn't though.

Month 2 of Insanity starts tomorrow AM. I've got my clothes laid out, my HRM charging, and the Glutamine ready to suck back!

Some hard, long rounds of golf lately have made the muscles in my upper arms stand to attention. It's doing nothing for my cardiovascular endurance, but the pushups in Insanity should be a little easier for me with the popeye arms!

I've been all about the salads lately. Cold wild rice salad with raw veggies, fresh fruit salads, tossed salads with raw veggies... i'm trying hard to get over the holiday eating plan. That plan included fresh, homemade cinnamon buns. No more of that, gotta get my head back in the game! Though I am still enjoying creamer in my coffee ;) for some reason, this has been the hardest holiday habit to break.

See you tomorrow!

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

V on 07/08/2012:
I shall think of you when I am doing the ski abs, pushup jacks, in and out abs and knee to oblique moves..I am so excited for some yelling at Shaun T, he is far too nice during recovery week ;) LOL Have a good one girl!


Em17 on 07/08/2012:
Have a great day!


hollybelle on 07/08/2012:
Wow clothes laid out for workout tomorrow! Why didn't I think of that? It would save me time deciding what to wear and FiNDING it early in the morning or after work. Of course my usual outfit for workout is my cycling togs which I have to wash everyday. Great work on the Insanity! I wish I didn't have to go back to work tomorrow either. I've been off 5 days!
