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.

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

Dinner: Turkey Lasagna

Dessert: Cookies Galore

Snacks: Cocoa Roasted Almonds, Banana & Grapes

***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

**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

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

Week 9: Insanity and Weight Watchers

Greetings!

I know everyone was expecting my final update on Insanity and Weight Watchers to be published today. However, a lot has happened over the past two weeks. I have not completed the Insanity program just yet. I’ve decided to redo weeks 8 and 9, and add an additional week. I will update accordingly. I apologize to those who were waiting and expecting a final update. It’s coming, it will just be delayed.

Due to the things taking place the past couple of weeks, I didn’t eat well either. At weigh in this morning, I found that I gained 5 pounds. Of course this is a setback, but I’ve come to realize that everything is not going to always be organized and done the way we want them. Life throws curve balls, and we have to learn how knock it out the park even if we strike out a few times.

With that said, stay tuned for my upcoming Insanity & Weight Watchers updates. If you’ve experienced a curve ball, I encourage you to get back up to the plate and try again! Keep moving forward.

Week 8: Insanity & WW

8/26-9/1

Note(s): The RNC and Hurricane/TS Isaac are on it’s their way this week. So, this will be a crazy week for Insanity and Weight Watchers! Previous servings of Chicken Sausage have been 1/2 serving. Also, I don’t know what it is, but the day after I do Plyo, I am extremely hungry. I guess that workout really jump starts my metabolism.

Day 46: (Insanity Day Off): Body most certainly needed a rest, as usual. Thank goodness!

Breakfast: Egg White Cheese Omelet, Toast (2), 1/3 serving of Olive Oil Butter, 1 Serving of Chicken Sausage (to finish it off)

Lunch: Sliced Chicken Sandwich

Dinner: Turkey Chili, 1/2 Serving of White Rice, 1/2 Serving of Reduced Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Snacks: Apple Crisp Granola & Cherries

Beverages: Tea, Coffee & Water

Day 46: (Fit Test & Max Interval Circuit): Alright, so I put forth so much effort in the Fit Test that when it came to the Circuit workout, I was tired. It took me until the second circuit to get it right. I hate that the Fit Test is put before a more difficult workout. Although, it took me until the second circuit to get my rhythm, I know my body still got a good workout.

Breakfast: Egg White Sandwich with Cheese & Turkey Sausage

Lunch: Smart Ones Broccoli and Cheddar Roasted Potatoes

Dinner: Turkey Chili, 1/2 Serving of White Rice, 1/2 Serving of Reduced Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Snacks: Peanut Butter Crackers, Banana & Cherries

Beverages: Tea & Water

Day 47: (Max Interval Plyo): After yesterday’s charades, I thought this was going to be a bad workout. However, it was great! Lately, I’ve been focusing more on my core, and today was no different.

Breakfast: Egg White Sandwich with Cheese & Turkey Sausage

Lunch: Smart Ones Fettuccine Alfredo

Dinner: Turkey Chili, 1/2 Serving of White Rice, 1/2 Serving of Reduced Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Snacks: Peanut Butter Crackers, Banana & Cherries

Unfortunately, I was unable to complete this week’s workouts. The roof caved in at work. I worked 12 hours on Wednesday and 13 on Thursday. I did not do my Insanity workout from 8/29-9/4 (This info will be noted in the next update as well), and I did not stick to my diet during those dates either. I will be picking back up tomorrow. I am going to make up the workouts that I missed and I’ve been thinking about adding an additional workout. I do feel bad about not completing Insanity on time, but it’s life. Things happen.

Week 7: Insanity & WW

8/19-8/25

Weight Loss/Gain: Loss 2.4 lbs

Day 39: (Day Off): As usual, these off days come right on time.

Breakfast: Egg White Cheese Omelet, Chicken Sausage, Toast (2)

Lunch: California Roll (6 Pieces)

Dinner: Progresso Light Santa Fe Chicken Soup & Sliced Deli Chicken Sandwich

Snacks: Ritz Cheese Crackers

Beverages: Water & Tea

Day 40: (Max Cardio Conditioning): This workout seemed a bit tough, but I definitely managed. I pushed myself hard as I do with each workout. I am still dealing with what I now believe is allergies.

Breakfast: Egg White w/ Cheese & Chicken Sausage Sandwich

Lunch: Smart Ones Fettuccine Alfredo

Dinner: Progresso Light Santa Fe Chicken Soup & Sliced Deli Chicken Sandwich

Snacks: Peanut Butter Crackers, Banana & Watermelon

Beverages: Water, Crystal Light & Tea

Day 41: (Max Interval Circuit): As usual, this workout was tough to get through, and as usual, I pushed myself through. Each time I do the circuit, I notice an improvement, which I think this is all about.

Breakfast: Egg White w/Cheese & Chicken Sausage Sandwich

Lunch: Smart Ones Roasted Turkey w/ Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Dinner: Progresso Pasta E. Fagioli, Sliced Deli Chicken Sandwich & 1/4 Serving of tortilla chips

Snacks: Snacks: Peanut Butter Crackers, Banana & Watermelon

Beverages: Water, Tea & Crystal Light

Day 42: (Max Interval Plyo): This workout was a little more difficult than times before. I was a bit distracted, so I didn’t put forth as much effort as I normally do. I wouldn’t say that it was a bad workout, but I definitely could have pushed harder. I hate V-Push Ups by the way. They are the absolute worse!

Breakfast: Egg White w/Cheese & Chicken Sausage Sandwich

Lunch: Smart Ones Fettuccine Alfredo

Dinner: Progresso Pasta E. Fagioli, Sliced Deli Chicken Sandwich & 1/4 Serving of tortilla chips

Snacks: Snacks: Apple Crisp Granola (2) & Banana

Day 43: (Max Cardio Recovery): For a “recovery” workout, this is pretty intense. I enjoy having light days though. They’re encouraging. Haha

Breakfast: Egg White w/Cheese & Chicken Sausage Sandwich

Lunch: Smart Ones Broccoli & Cheddar Roasted Potatoes

Dinner: Turkey Chili, Shredded Cheddar Cheese (Reduced Fat), 1/2 Serving of Sour Cream & 1/2 Serving of Tortilla Chips

Snacks: Banana & Peanut Butter Crackers

Beverages: Water, Tea & Crystal Light

Day 44: (Max Cardio Conditioning & Insane Abs): I really pushed through this workout. I did it extremely late, but I got through it without less energy. The Insane Abs were just that. I was expecting a 20 minute workout, 5 minutes longer than the other abs workout. However, I must admit I was quite saddened that the Insane Abs workout was 33 minutes. It definitely worked my abs though. Good workout!

Breakfast: Egg White w/Cheese & Chicken Sausage Sandwich

Lunch: Smart Ones Fettuccine Alfredo

Dinner: Turkey Chilli, Shredded Cheddar Cheese (Reduced Fat), 1/4 Serving of Tortilla Chips

Snacks: Banana, 1/2 of Granola Bar & Peanut Butter Crackers

Beverages: Water, Tea & Crystal Light

Day 45: (Sports Training): This is my favorite workout out of all the workouts. During my younger days, I played sports. This workout was reminiscent of that. I definitely enjoyed it. I wasn’t sure what to expect, so I googled a review and watched the video briefly before I did it. The review threw me off, but I was prepared for the workout after watching it first.

Breakfast: Scrambled Egg Whites w/Cheese, Grits, Chicken Sausage & 1 Slice of Toast w/half of tbsp of Olive Oil Butter

Lunch: Cherries

Dinner: Turkey Chilli, Shredded Cheddar Cheese (Reduced Fat), 1/2 Cup of White Rice
