Insanity: Week 1

week 1Okay, so obviously my weight-loss/work-out efforts were a bit derailed at the end of this past week (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, read this post). Insanity isn’t the type of work-out anyone should do while they’re pregnant….it’s way too high-intensity, there’s too much jumping around, and your heart rate will be going through the roof!! Before our news Thursday night though I had been killing it as far as tracking my calories on my MyFitnessPal app and working out every day. I skipped Friday & Saturday’s workouts….and probably ate too much this weekend (I’m an emotional eater….it’s a problem), but I still managed to LOSE 2.4 LBS THIS WEEK! I’m super stoked about that! After the weekend I’ve had I honestly didn’t think I would have lost any weight at all this week. I plan to start back with Week 2, Day 1 today…but I wanted to give you a quick recap of just how INSANE Insanity is:

Monday: Fit Test
Duration: 24:40
Calories Burned: 311

Tuesday: Plyometric Cardio Circuit
Duration: 41:31
Calories Burned: 572

Wednesday: Cardio Power & Resistance
Duration: 40:06
Calories Burned: 547

Thursday: Cardio Recovery
Duration: 33:17
Calories Burned: 364

Something I really like about what I’m doing in regards to counting my calories this time around is that I’m still eating the food I like…..just not as much of it, and I’m making smarter choices. For example, my favorite meal at Wendy’s is the Ultimate Grill Chicken Sandwich with a small chili as the side (instead of FF), and it’s only 550 calories. I think in the past when I’ve tried to live off of baked chicken, veggies, and protein shakes I’ve just felt so deprived and it always ends badly for me. Something I realize is that this needs to become a way of life for me or all I’ll ever see are temporary results!  I think this method is really going to work for me, and I’m excited about it. BRING ON THE WEIGHT LOSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. You’re awesome! I’d love to do something like this but I’m afraid I’ll fall over dead. Ha! Also, I don’t want to pay for anything. I wish I could get this kind of willpower! I am going to try!

    • Lol, yes sometimes I feel like I’m close to puking but I always finish. And I feel like a total bad ass when I do. Well worth the money!!
