Let the Insanity Begin! Week Six Results

Saturday, April 2, 2011

I am so not proud of myself right now. I let a cold with a low-grade fever and my child prevent me from finishing today's workout. In my humble defense, I used most of what little energy I had to do the fit test (can someone tell me how to make a table so you all can see my progress?):

90 switch kicks
60 power jacks
99 power knees
48 power jumps
10 globe jumps (why I am stuck on this number!)
15 suicide jumps
17 push-up jacks
40 low plank obliques

Not bad for a sick person! However, the fit test is followed by the 60-minute Max Interval workout. I tried to do it by modifying some of the exercises and making them low-impact. I quit at the 45 minute mark. It didn't help that Marlie kept interrupting, which is not like her. She usually sits on the bed with some toys and books and occupies herself. But today she wanted to sit in the middle of our workout space where she could get stepped on, then she wanted a snack, then she wanted us to look out the window with her, then she wanted to sit on the potty...twice, then she wanted breakfast. Damon finally threw in the towel. I did not protest because I was feeling crappy anyway.

She did the same thing to me on Monday and Tuesday when I had to workout alone because Damon was out of town. She kept wanting me to pick her up while I was exercising. My workouts took twice as long. I hope she is not being disruptive because she feeling left out or neglected. We still have two weeks to go!

Anyway, I hope I get over this cold soon. I don't want to lose momentum. I have been getting much stronger in the chest and arms. I can actually do most of the push-up exercises now.

I am still motivated and enjoying the DVDs. I now know the names of Shaun T.'s workout buddies and I like to call them out when they stop in the middle of an exercise. We recognized Jimmy already because he is going to appear in a print ad for Damon's company soon. Small world, huh?!

Short 15 minutes is great if your not feeling well & Marlie wants some attention is really good! I can't wait to see your end results. What happens after the 2 weeks? Is there another phase?

You did amazing for being sick!

60 minutes AFTER a fit test? holy crap. I'm gonna have to get up at 5am that day. WOW

I emailed you some code for the table...see if you can make it work.

Thats awesome for being sick and having a little one! I am on my 2nd week and have lost about 8 pounds :) It is still kicking my butt! I want to do Zumba as well. I think the fact that Shaun T is such a hottie helps keep ya goin lol.

You look like you weren't feeling well, but your abs keep getting tighter and tighter! I had just assumed you guys worked out while Marlie was still asleep and that was why you got up so early. I've tried exercise DVD's with Vivi around and she always wants me to hold her and so forth. If I do something like downward dog, she'll crawl under me. Even I just go for a walk, she'll want me to carry her 1/2 the time. I hope Marlie cooperates more this week.
