Insanity Max30 Week 1 Results

WEEK 1 UPDATE:

I want to let you in on a little secret…I absolutely hate cardio!  Too strong?  lol  My favorites have always been strength training so it completely took me by surprise when I said yes I will do Insanity Max30 with you.  About 10 seconds after I committed I was trying to come up with ANY excuse/reason that would get me out of it.

But, then my coach made a video talking about committing to yourself.  She asked if when you give your word on something does it really mean anything or does  everyone know that sooner or later you are going to go back on what you said?

In the past my word didn’t really stand for anything. I broke commitments with other people, I broke them with myself.  I would start something with the best intentions but soon I would give myself a hundred reasons of why it was okay for me to stop.

I don’t want to be known for that.  I want my yes to be yes and my no to be no.  I want people to know that when I say something it is going to happen.  I want to know that when I commit to something I am going to finish and not give up on myself.

So I decided that I was going to do Insanity Max30 to the BEST of my ability.  I told myself that this is the beginning of something new for me.  That I was going to put myself first and that meant not backing out on this.

I started my Insanity Max30 journey while I was visiting my daughter in Wichita.  I know, I know.  Starting something like this while on vacation may not have been the smartest thing but I didn’t want to give myself time to think about this. 🙂  So I jumped right in.

Imagine my surprise to find out that I am actually LOVING this program!  ❤  It is 30 minutes a day, 6 days a week. I have completed 8 days so far and I am already seeing results.  Not just in a physical transformation but also in my endurance.  On day 1 I did Cardio Challenge and maxed out at 8:31. Seven days later I did the same workout and doubled my time.  I maxed out today at 17:35! Woot!  Woot!  Yep I am excited about that!

What do I mean by maxed out?  It simply means that I pushed as hard as I could for as long as I could. When I got to the point that I had to stop, well that is my maxed out time.

I am happy to admit that I have completed EVERY workout so far and I am drinking shakeology EVERY day for breakfast.  Today I stepped on the scale and took my measurements.   So far I have lost 2.2 lbs and 11.75 inches!  ❤  That is in one week!

To say that I am happy with my results would be an understatement.  My stomach is starting to shrink, my mindset is already different and my performance has increased.  I would say that is a triple win for me.  Changes are in the making and I am pushing on!  I am ready to be victorious with week 2! ❤

Are you doing Max30?  What day are you on? If your not doing it, what are you waiting for? 😉

Make each day count!
