A Process

Today started week 2 of Insanity and I've learned that by putting myself on video is really beneficial in order to progress.  I can and always have been extremely critical of myself and body type, but watching me go through this grueling process has given me a huge appreciation for my body.  It's a very awkward experience to watch yourself after the fact.  It's also very helpful.  You'll notice that I am struggling quite a bit during some of the exercises and my form is completely gone in other parts.  A part of me wants to criticize my flaws, but what good would that do for me?  What good does it do for you?

I'm trusting this process and believe just that.  For me, I know what I have to work on.  For those of you reading, I want you to know that you can push yourself further than you think.  Do I have to take breaks?  Of course?  Do I feel like I'm about to die in parts?  Absolutely! BUT...giving up is not an option.   Whether you're running your first 5K today or doing Jillian Michael's 30-Day Shred, getting to the finish line should be a process.  A progression of the goals you have set for yourself.  I'm happy where I am today and excited about where this process will take me.

The video speaks for itself.  It's clips of the final interval of the cardio power & resistance dvd.  I say something different in the video but I wasn't completely coherent.  Enjoy and stay motivated!

I've chosen your blog to analyze. WOW! I love to see someone training like me or harder. The only thing that's stopping me from going out for a 4mil run right now is this headache.
