So far, this year has been moderately active, with running most lunchtimes, and I have eaten pretty well. I have sorted my workplace feeding out and am on fruit for breakfast and a massive salad for lunch. Snacking in the evening is down, not eliminated (Holly made cookies), but is reasonable. I must be losing weight. Trousers are still tight.
I am now on day three of the Insanity Workout. Insanity is one of these very commercially successful conditioning programs, in this case 60 days. It’s very, erm, American. I am usually not keen on these types of things, but for me at this time of terrible fitness it might be just what I need. It also doesn’t require any equipment which is great for doing it at home. It in itself is nothing special but Shaun T does make you push yourself and it gives structure to training. 60 days to a new me. We will see. After only a couple of sessions, I am inclined to believe it!
It’s true what they say – the warm up is quite enough on its own. Yesterday I was supposed to do sets of burpees and press-ups but by that point I couldn’t even do a press up, despite not having done any yet (if that makes any sense at all). Today I was supposed to climb too but after failing to get up in time to do Insanity before work, I just couldn’t face climbing after work and then still having Insanity to do. I must climb mid-week, yet also must do Insanity. I think I may put the videos on my phone and do it in the basement at lunchtime and just suffer the weird looks I’ll get.
As Shaun T would say “c’mon ya’ll, DIG DEEPER”.
Shaun T in all his glory
