I don’t know if you consider this Day 1 or Day 2 of Insanity since it was the first workout after the fit test. Going by the calendar that came with it…it’s Day 2 and so I’m going with that. I overslept this morning so my workout didn’t happen until this evening. This was the most horrendous workout I’ve ever endured. Truth be told, if I were not blogging about this and spreading it all over the interwebs that I’m doing it….I would quit.
The whole time I was mentally kicking myself for starting this after taking such a long break from working out. If I had started it when I was in better shape I don’t think it would be quite as bad. Still awful, but not want to cry awful. I have some friends starting it today and based on their level of fitness I know they’ll have a much easier time with it. It’s an aptly named workout for sure.
When you see the super fit people in the workout laying out on the floor and barely able to complete the moves you know it’s no joke. But I keep telling myself that it will get better. That Shaun T though…what’s wrong with that man? Who thinks up ski abs? Ugh!
Anyway, I remember when I read Ali Vincent’s book (first female to win Biggest Loser) she talked about visualizing herself in the dress she would wear at the finale. So, while I was wanting to throw up I was visualizing a dress I have in my closet. It’s the goal “little black dress”. There’s nothing special about this dress. I found it at a thrift store with the tags still on it. It’s not that pretty even, but it’s a size 1o and when I tried it on I could almost zip it. Now…not even close. So, I hope that by the end of this 60 days I’ll be closer to wearing that dress. Stay tuned!
