Insanity Day 2 Review

Day 2.  I could tell from my workout on Day 1 that I am clearly out of shape.  Last night I did the workout for Day 2 and my muscles were already a little tender from my fit test.  I feel like there are certain parts on Plyometric Cardio Circuit where I didn’t push myself as hard as I could.  Although, with that said, me spending half the workout passed our or throwing up would have been worse that taking some needed brakes.  Day 2 was of course insane but once the 45 workout was over it felt well worth it.  I was a sweaty mess when it was all done but that just means my fat is crying, right?  I can’t wait to see what Day 3 has to offer.  This first week will be the hardest.  It’s easy to keep yourself motivated for a week it’s the next week and the week after that and so on that it becomes a problem.  Did you know that it takes like 28 days to create or break a habit.  That means it will take me the entire first month to create this habit, which hopefully means that Month 2 will be a breeze.  Something tells me that wont be the case.  I’m hoping to see some results by Day 27:  1st Bachelorette party of the year.  Something tells me I should have started a little sooner.  Actually this was part of the final straw that set this whole thing in motion.  Nothing makes you feel as crappy as trying on countless dresses for a night out and looking awful in every one of them.  WELL aside from taking half naked pictures of yourself for your Insanity before shots.  While I strongly encourage you to do this, I do so with warning.  Nothing prepared me for the before pictures I had my boyfriend snap of me in our apartment.  It was enough to send me into tears looking at them.  As much as I hope that the camera adds 10 pounds the proof of my weight problem was staring right back at me in the preview screen of my camera.    While the photos were a little discouraging they have burned an image in my head of how I don’t want to look.  It’s not about being supermodel thin by any means, but it is about me being comfortable in my own skin which isn’t somewhere I have been in a long time.  I’m 5’5” and 183 lbs.  I’m told I hide my weight well but I’m certain that’s just what people say to make me feel better.  I spent too long not taking responsibility for my unhappiness and coming up with every excuse as to why I didn’t have time to workout.  It was true that I had or have little free time.  I was working three jobs equaling about 60-70 hours a week and now I’m working two jobs totaling about 45-50 hours a week.  But even so, a insanity workout lasts about 45 min.  If I don’t “have time” to dedicate myself to a program then I’m only doing myself harm.  Here’s to the next 61 days!
