Insanity Max 30 Day 24 Sweat Intervals


I cannot believe it.

While I did stop a couple seconds to rub my lower back, and I did drop down to modified versions of the exercises when my calves got too sore, there is one thing I did NOT do in this workout tonight.

I did NOT take any extra breaks.

I did NOT “max out.”

Needless to say, I’m riding high on that one. It is a damn good accomplishment. Will I be upset with myself if I don’t repeat this same thing tomorrow? Absolutely not. I know each day is different. For example if I don’t sleep as well tonight, then I won’t be able to push through tomorrow.

Speaking of sleep, I wanted to share something I noticed these last couple days: I have been getting up about 20 minutes ahead of my alarm but, instead of groaning over the fact that there is no point in trying to fall back to sleep, I simply get out of bed and start getting ready. And this isn’t the normal aching, moaning, groaning and moving slow egress from bed either: I get on my feet and start to get dressed.

Now don’t get me wrong: I’m not saying I’m complaint-free when I GET to work, but I’m no longer such a mess when I am getting out of bed.

What can be the cause for all this? Is it the effort I am putting in to being positive? Could it be paying off ALREADY? I wouldn’t have thought so, but it just might be!
