Woot, my first week doing INSANITY is over!
Only 7 weeks left.
Today was not bad. It was hard, don’t get me wrong, but I felt stronger. This was the same routine I did on day 1 and I definitely was able to do more and keep up more.
I swear, though, my thighs feel HUGE. Like they have all these new muscles they didn’t have before.
When I started strength training, I gained 3.2lb in TWO days. Yes, two days. Apparently, little used muscles tend to grab fluid and hold onto it like crazy when they start getting the once over. But, by day 7, not only had I lost what I gained, plus some, I also lost inches. Take some ibuprofen to reduce the inflammation in your muscles and see if that doesn’t help! Chin up, buttercup, you’re muscles hate you now, but they will love you in the long run!
Thank you, Virginia, you rock!
I get tomorrow off. It feels kind of strange but I know it’s for a reason. I need to let my body recover despite my feelings I should be working out.
I’ll have an updated photo for you tomorrow or Monday so stay tuned!
Note: I was sent the INSANITY workout program to try and share my feedback on my blog. The sweat, and opinions produced during my use of the program are my own.
