I have really noticed an improvement over these last, almost four weeks. When I started the program the Level 1 and Level 2 drills seemed impossible to finish. I am happy to say that I can complete all of the drills. In Plyometric Cardio Circuit there is a series of core work/ shoulder work exercises that I never thought I would be able to complete. This week I have this workout twice and today I almost completed all of the exercises. I hope that by the last time I do this workout on Friday, I can complete it without rests. It's a lofty goal but one I hope to accomplish. The true test will be my Fit Test which I will do in a week and a half.
For those of you wanting to get to brass tax, I have NOT lost any weight. Why? Who knows! I have sweat more in this past month than I have in a long time. I will say that I am a lot more hungry and am eating enough to pick up the deficit that is caused by the intense workouts. Should I make a calorie deficit? Another good question. At this moment in time I am focusing on switching out fat for muscle and less on the number on the scale. I am always struggling with the scale and have decided that as much as I want it to say 130, it may never happen again. 138 may just be my number. I have made it a habit now to write down how I am feeling before I get on the scale and after I get on it. This practice has really helped me differentiate between what my body really feels like and what my brain makes it think it feels like. Try it!
I have an appointment at my doctors office on August 6th. They will take my body mass numbers again and see if my fat to muscle ratio has improved. To me, that is the true test. Stay tuned and see if Insanity has helped those stubborn numbers improve!
I'll be breaking down Core Cardio & Balance next week.
Thanks as always for reading! I want to here your stories too. Share, share!!!
