Tonight is going to be an "all nighter" at work, so I made sure I worked out this morning. I think I like that better than a hard evening workout. As long as I can drag my sorry butt out of bed in the morning, I'm going to do that more often.

If I don't get active first thing I am so muc h less likely to be active that day.

Went on a 3.5 hour walk with the dog and kids. It was exhausting.

Fran, are you sore everywhere from the Insanity workout??

I was looking at the Power 90, P90X and Insanity and trying to decide which one I wanted to try. I ended up just going with the Power 90 because I tried the P90X maybe a year ago? and it was waaayy too hard! Pull ups, push ups pull ups push ups, I couldn't do that for 90 minutes!

But I do know Insanity is more cardio and less strength training. Since I don't want to be too buff and I want better endurance I was contemplating it... How are you liking it?

The Power 90 is really not too bad, I'm only starting week 3 tomorrow but it takes between 30-45 minutes a day (I do it in the morning) and I do feel that I'm getting stronger since I can do the military push ups in the video now where I was never able to do before. For those of you wanting to add some strength training into your routine or those beginning to exercise and are not incredibly fit, I highly recommend it! I picked it because I still have a month of school/exams/papers to finish up and can't find time to do 90 minutes of exercising a day and also because Insanity terrifies me....I might try that after lol.

I am pretty sore everywhere thanks to insanity, I am pretty familiar with P90x and yea, insanity is A LOT more cardio and sweat.
I, like you, lack strength (which I'm working on) but videos that concentrate so much on pull ups/push ups etc.. don't do it for me. I just end up giving up, I HAVE WEAK SAD ARMS!! LOL

Here are some links to the insanity videos and a bunch of others (..a little less than legal lol) if you'd like to give it a try and see what it's like
http://hula-hips.tumblr.com/tagged/workoutlinks

and the calendar to follow



I like it a lot.
It's really hard but it's never boring. The exercises are simple for the most part and you really feel like you do A LOT for 50 minutes. I end up in a sweaty heap on the floor, every time. There are recovery days and really great stretches and breaks as well.

It's plenty of cardio (which is really what I wanted) but it has enough strength training in there that I am improving!

Today was fit club. We did Rockin body Disco groove. Super fun and a great cardio workout. My coach was thrilled that I kept up the pace through the whole thing . Not an easy workout but very fun

Rockin body is also done by Shaun T

Just finished my workout.

I am rocking super mom status today lol. Had co op this morning and then we came home and I cleaned the heck out of the house and did the laundry. Bathed the child and got my workout in. I was supposed to do fat burning cardio today but since 25 minutes was about as long as I was going to get for a workout I wanted something a little more. So I put on Rockin body Party express an sweated my butt off lol (literally? Lol).

Took my pulse when we started cooldown and it was 156 I still have dinner to make, a shower to take and worship team practice tonight lol

Reading inspirational marathon and half-marathon posts because I'm feeling rather low about... everything right now. And read one which reminded me of last year. There's a point where the full and the half-marathon split off. "Full marathoners go in this lane. Half-marathoners go in this lane." I read the sign. I read it, read it, read it again, and I got in the proper lane.

And after I passed the branching off point, I was suddenly overwhelmed with panic, looked around, spotted people behind me without headphones in and asked them "hey this is still the half-marathon path right? I read that sign right??" Yes, yes I had, but we were all laughing perhaps a little too hysterically about the fact that I had to check.

That was I think about mile 12 and my brain was NOT functioning properly anymore at that point, hence why I had to check and check and double-check.

Why would anybody willingly do this to themselves?! What is wrong with me?!
