Week 9 (Redo): Insanity & WW

9/16-9/23

Weight Loss/Gain: Loss 3.6

9/16: Insanity Day Off: I can’t express how much I really need this day off. It is extremely difficult to take a hiatus during the Insanity program and try to pick back up.

Breakfast: Pancakes, Egg Whites & Turkey Sausage

Lunch: Chicken Deli Sandwich and White Cheddar Popcorn

Dinner: Turkey Lasagna  (Homemade)

Snacks: Cocoa Roasted Almonds, Banana & Grapes

Beverages: Water, Tea & Coffee

9/17: Max Interval Circuit: This was hard, as usual. I pushed myself, but I can feel that I’ve lost a few steps due to my hiatus. It sucks, but I have to push myself to complete what I started.

Breakfast: Egg Whites, Turkey Sausage & 1 Slice of Toast

Lunch: Smart Ones Fettucine Alfredo

Dinner: Turkey Lasagna

Snacks: Cocoa Roasted Almonds, Banana & Grapes

Beverages: Water, Tea & Coffee

9/18: Max Interval Conditioning/Insane Abs: I did a lot better this time around. I was especially happy with my effort during the Insane Abs workout.

Breakfast: Egg Whites & Turkey Sausage

Lunch: Progresso Santa Fe Chicken Soup (Lite) & Peanut Butter Crackers

Dinner: Turkey Lasagna

Dessert: Cookies Galore

Snacks: Cocoa Roasted Almonds, Banana & Grapes

Beverages: Water, Tea & Coffee

***When over alloted points for the day.

9/19: Max Interval Sports Training: I love this workout! I definitely pushed myself through. This is the only workout that seems to go by quickly! I also made a mistake, this workout was supposed to be done tomorrow. I’ll just have to swap it out.

Breakfast: Egg Whites & Turkey Sausage

Lunch: Progresso Santa Fe Chicken Soup (Lite) & Peanut Butter Crackers

Dinner: Turkey Lasagna

Snacks: Cocoa Roasted Almonds, Banana & Grapes

Dessert: 1 Serving of Mini Oreo Cookies

Beverages: Water, Tea & Coffee

9/20: Max Interval Circuit: Knowing that this my last time doing this workout, I tried my best to push through and get it done. I wanted to accomplish as much and feel as I did before I took the time off, but was unsuccessful. However, I still got a good workout.

Breakfast: Egg Whites & Turkey Sausage

Lunch: Sliced Chicken Deli Sandwich & Cocoa Roasted Almonds

Dinner: Turkey Lasagna

Snacks: Grapes

Beverages: Water, Tea & Coffee

9/20: Max Interval Plyo: I killed this workout. As I’ve mentioned before, I like this way better than Max Interval Circuit, so that in itself was motivation to do the best I could. During this workout, I felt like I had not taken any time off. It’s crazy what a day’s difference can do. I’m definitely looking forward to my last Insanity workout tomorrow!

Breakfast: Egg Whites & Turkey Sausage

Lunch: Sliced Chicken Deli Sandwich & Salad

Dinner: Turkey Lasagna

Snacks: Grapes & Apple Crisp Granola

Dessert: Mini Oreos

Beverages: Water, Tea & Coffee

**Went over allotted amount of points. I made the mistake of thinking I had more points than I actually did. 🙂

9/20: Max Interval Conditioning/Insane Abs: As you all are aware, this was my last workout. So, you know I had to show out even if I was the only one in the room. I pushed through, and made sure I went out strong. I did. I feel great, and accomplished. 

Breakfast: Pancakes, Egg Whites & Turkey Sausage

Lunch: Sliced Chicken Deli Sandwich with Shredded Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese

Dinner: Turkey Lasagna

Snacks: Cocoa Roasted Almonds

Beverages: Water, Tea & Coffee

Please look out for my Insanity Reflection Post, coming soon!

Health Trip: Insanity & WW

I officially started Insanity yesterday (7/9). Let’s just say that the fit test made me tired. However, I’m motivated to complete this challenge. I’m not going to blog about Insanity (and Weight Watchers) everyday. Instead, I’ll give weekly updates until I complete my 60-day-challenge.

I’ve heard a lot of great things about Insanity, and have finally built-up enough courage to take a crack at it. I’ve actually had the Insanity set since 2009. I know, terrible. It is what it is. I’m ready now!

I’m also on Weight Watchers and have been on it for the past few months. Weight Watchers truly works, but I haven’t been reaping the full benefits because I wasn’t committed to any workout program. Now that I’ve signed on to Insanity, I can reap the full benefits of the Weight Watchers program. for me, Weight Watchers has reinforced portion control and eating less processed food. I am less inclined to eat out because most restaurant meals can use up a day’s worth of points. I’ve noticed that I also pay more attention to the fat/carb/fiber/protein content of the food I eat.

On Weight Watchers I lost 20 lbs, but  I gained back about 5 lbs because I went on a self-induced hiatus for the last month and a half. So, to-date, I’ve lost 15 lbs. I haven’t given up because I am determined to reach my goal no matter how long it takes. I’d like to lose about 20 more pounds.

I know some  of my friends and family think that’s too much to lose, but it’s not about how they view me, it’s about how I view myself. I by no means have low self-esteem; I just want to lose weight while becoming healthier and physically fit. This is something I have to do for myself and no one else.
