Week 8 (Redo): Insanity & WW

Alright folks, I hope I haven’t let too many of you down with my incompletion of Insanity as scheduled. As aforementioned, I am going to redo Weeks 8 & 9, and I’m debating on adding an additional week. With that said, here’s my Week 8 Redo week update…

9/10-9/16

9/10: Max Interval Circuit: Let’s just say that I got my butt whooped and didn’t even make it through the entire workout. I had a headache prior to starting, and once I started the first circuit, I began to feel dizzy, light-headed, and extremely nauseated. Usually I would have tried to push through, but this time I think if I would have continued, I would have passed out, seriously.

Breakfast: Peanut Butter Crackers

Lunch: Nothing

Dinner: Turkey Burger, popcorn

Snack: Apple Crisp Granola Bars

Beverages: Water, Coffee,  & Green Tea

9/11: Max Interval Plyometrics: This was tough, but I think I did fairly well considering I haven’t worked out in a week and a half. My body is definitely going to have to readjust to get hammered by Insanity. I’m going to take a slow, but push myself.

Breakfast: Oatmeal w/reduced fat milk

Lunch: Smart Ones Alfredo Fettuccine

Dinner: Yellow Rice 2/3 serving), Turkey Sausage (2 oz), Black Beans & Steamed String Beans

Snack: Peanut Butter Crackers

Beverages: Water & Green Tea

9/12: Max Interval Conditioning & Insane Abs: While doing this workout, I felt like it was the first time I’ve done it. Towards the end of the Insane abs workout, I noticed my heart rate increased signficantly. I allowed it to decrease, then I picked back up. Overall, I thought I did well, and will continue to push through until I complete Insanity.

Breakfast: None

Lunch: Smart Ones Broccoli & Cheddar Roasted Potatoes

Dinner: Yellow Rice 3/4 serving), Turkey Sausage (2 oz), Black Beans & Steamed String Beans

Snack: Peanut Butter Crackers (2/3 serving)

Beverages: Water & Green Tea

9/13: Max Interval Recovery: Like the other workouts during this week, it was tough to get through.

Breakfast: 1 Egg & biscuit

Lunch: Smart Ones Fettuccine Alfredo

Dinner: Progresso Reduced Fat Clam Chowder w/Yellow Rice (1/4 Serving) & Grilled Cheese

Snack: Hummingbird Cupcake & 1 Godiva Biscuit

Beverages: Water, Coffee & Green Tea

9/14: Max Interval Cardio Circuit: I was able to get through this workout this time around. It was hard, but I managed. I definitely paid close attention to my body to make sure I didn’t experience the same issues I did on Monday. Overall, it was a good workout.

Breakfast: Egg Sandwich

Lunch: Smart Ones Fettuccine Alfredo

Dinner: Progresso Reduced Fat Clam Chowder & Grilled Cheese w/Turkey Sausage, White Cheddar Popcorn

Snack: Peanut Butter Crackers & Nutter Butters

Beverages: Water, Coffee & Green Tea

**Went over allotted points for the day.

9/15: Max Interval Sports training: As I mentioned before, this is my favorite Insanity workout. It was hard to get through, but it is the most manageable workout. I made sure to push through though. I think during this redo week, it was my best workout.

Breakfast: Shrimp & Grits, 1 Slice of Toast

Lunch: Banana & Cocoa Roasted Almonds

Dinner: Sliced Chicken Deli Sandwich (grilled), Black Beans & Steamed String Beans

Snack: Watermelon

Beverages: Coffee & Green Tea

Week 4: Insanity & WW

7/29-8/4

Note: Now, I know some are thinking why does she continue to eat things like Cheetos. Well, I have it in my home and I don’t want to waste food. I eat these things, but I don’t over indulge. I don’t go over the serving size listed on the product packaging either.

Weight Loss/Gain: 3.8 Lbs

Day 21 (Insanity Day off): I just relaxed.

Breakfast: Egg whites, cheese and turkey sausage sandwich

Lunch: Sliced chicken sandwich and Cheetos

Dinner: Grilled Chicken Breast, Cabbage, Red Beans and Small Cheese Quesadilla

Dessert: Strawberry slices with Cool Whip and 1/3 serving of Crushed Teddy Grahams

Snacks: Fruit Salad (Cherries, Mango, Apples, Strawberries, Kiwi and Grapes)

Beverages: Water & Tea

Day 22 (Pure Cardio & Cardio Abs): I killed the jumping jack push ups! Very, very proud of myself. My goal with this workout was to get through the entire workout without a break; I didn’t succeed, but I took fewer and shorter breaks. Progress is good with me.

Breakfast: Egg white, cheese and turkey sausage sandwich

Lunch: Smart Ones Fettucine Alfredo

Dinner: Lobster Bisque, Cheese Quesadilla and Sun Chips

Snacks: Apple Crisp Granola Bar, Banana and Fruit Salad

Beverages: Water & Tea

Day 23 (Cardio Power and Resistance): Wooohooo. This was a tough one. As I progress in Insanity, my goal has been to make it through an entire workout without any of my breaks. I haven’t been successful yet. However, I know by setting that goal it gives me the strength to push harder and longer. That’s exactly what I did during this workout.

Breakfast: Egg white, cheese and turkey sausage sandwich

Lunch: Smart Ones Broccoli and Cheddar Roasted Potatoes.

Dinner: Lobster Bisque, Cheese Quesadilla

Snacks: Banana, Fruit Salad

Beverages: Water & Tea

Day 24 (Plyo Cardio): This was a tough day! I didn’t sleep the night before, so my body was not having it. However, I kept my goal in mind and I pushed hard. I almost made it through, but wasn’t successful just yet.

Breakfast: Egg white, cheese and turkey sausage sandwich

Lunch: Smart Ones Fettucine Alfredo

Dinner: Progresso Light Clam Chowder, Small Cheese Quesadilla & Cheetos

Dessert: 1/3 serving of Teddy Grahams

Snacks: Banana, Fruit Salad

Beverages: Water & Tea

Day 25 (Cardio Recovery): I typically say the same thing for this workout. It always comes right on time. I pushed myself harder, and sweat more as a result.

Breakfast: Egg white, cheese and turkey sausage sandwich

Lunch: Smart Ones Fettucine Alfredo

Dinner: Progresso Light Clam Chowder, Small Cheese Quesadilla & Cheetos

Dessert: 1/3 serving of Teddy Grahams

Snacks: Banana, Fruit Salad

Beverages: Water & Tea

Day 26 (Pure Cardio & Cardio Abs): I enjoy this workout more than any other workout. I really push myself to complete it without taking any of my breaks because Shaun T doesn’t give us any breaks. One part of the cardio abs I have the most trouble with is when we are asked to straighten our legs, pull them in together, push them back out and lift while in C-position. I haven’t been able to successfully do this yet! 😦 I have high hopes though!

Breakfast: Egg white, cheese and turkey sausage sandwich

Lunch: Smart Ones Chicken Mesquite

Dinner: Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Baked Cheetos & Green Giant Individual Broccoli w/cheese

Snacks: Banana, Fruit Salad

Beverages: Water & Tea

Day 27 (Plyo Cardio): Great workout!!! I almost didn’t make it. lol. I actually worked out around 11pm after walking literally all day. I was exhausted, but this workout gave me life!

Breakfast: Special K Cereal (1 serving) & 1/2 Serving of Silk Soy Milk

Lunch: Publix Brown Rice California Roll

Dinner: Apple Crisp Granola Bar

Snacks: None

Beverages: Tea, Water & Coffee
