Today is double workout day: Pure Cardio & Cardio Abs. This circuit pair has occurred twice before, and both those times I only did Pure Cardio. Today, I happened to notice that these were separate programs on the same DVD. Not to be confused with Cardio Power & Resistance which is a single workout.
Pure Cardio was enjoyable. I took fewer breaks than the last time but more than the next time. The Level Two Drill and the Suicide Jumps just wipe me out. As the man says, the stuff is bananas.
Cardio Abs was new territory. Of all the workouts to put a workout after, why Pure Cardio? Besides being exhausted from the Pure Cardio my arms were spent from the Level Two Drills, so the plank work didn’t work out so well. This was not an enjoyable workout, but I think it will fall into place.
Meal 5: Vegetable Lentil Soup
Food Update: still pushing down the caloric intake. You may recall that last week I came to the conclusion that I didn’t need to bump up my caloric intake as much as I thought. I am trying to work my way back to were I was prior to the Insanity Workout. Still focusing on high quality, diverse protein sources. Although, I subscribe to the “drink a glass of wine” each day philosophy, I am dropping Monday and Wednesday to save those calories. You will also note that I dropped sodas. At first I felt carb starved, but I am over that now, and frankly, soda is a quality source of carbs anyway.
Supplement Update: I have added a second B-Complex at the end of the day following my workout. I have also added a Glucosamine and Chondroitin supplement to see if I can relieve some of the stiffness in my knees.
