“Dig deeper ya’ll!” is screaming out of my television as sweat is pouring down my face. ” I am!” is the scream back at the television. The sweat by this point is penetrating my much-loved Dri-fit shirt. I have started insanity.
What is insanity you ask? Well, the name speaks for itself. It is a at home exercise DVD set. It should take you 60 takes to complete it doing it like 6 times a week. A video in month 1 can last between 30 to 45 minutes. In month 2, the videos become a much longer. It is high intensity interval training.
I have started the 60 days before but then 3 weeks into month 1. I became pregnant with daughter number 2. I felt as though insanity was a little insane for a pregnant woman. After Bella was born I went back to running. Bella is now 3 years old.
The winter months are the hardest for me to run and stay in shape. Winter months can be the hardest to workout. By the time I get home from work, I am less likely to go back out to the gym. Enter insanity into my life again.
Why am I blogging about something like this? Because If I put it out there in social media, I will have to complete the two months. I will. I want to be in better shape and faster for my upcoming half-marathon year. I want to get out of the winter working out rat hole that I currently find myself. I want to challenge myself.
Today, Shaun T and I will workout today. I might say nice things to good ole’ Shaun T through the television. I might put my head down in frustration and yell, ” I am working as hard as I can!” and he will yell back ” It’s time to push!”. We have a love/hate relationship.
I have never meet Shaun T. But If I ever do, I would tell him one thing, my daughter thinks you are hilarious. I do not find you hilarious at all.
It’s time to dig deep for the next 52 days.
