As you know I officially started Insanity a week ago and since Monday I have gained 5 pounds, how can this be? I’ve been eating slightly better but not perfect by any means so why the weight gain? Maybe it’s water weight, increased muscle or a combination of both, regardless I’m not going to get caught up in what the scale says, at least not right now. If I continue to see an upward trend then I’ll make some changes, eat cleaner, drink more water, incorporate a few short runs throughout the week to name a few. These changes will hopefully jump start my metabolism and with month two of Insanity lurking around the corner this should start the trend back downward. One way to obviously tell if you’ve had true weight gain is by how your clothes fit and as of today I’m on the same notch in my belt and the clothes don’t feel snug, good signs
As for the Insanity workouts they are going along well, tried Max Interval Sports Training for the first time and it was very tough, a little longer than the first 30 days of workouts but a nice change of pace. Today calls for Cardio Power & Resistance and I have one goal in mind, do more Power Jumps than last time, I’m going to embrace them. Overall I’m feeling good mentally about this round of Insanity, I just hope I can physically keep it up. The lower abdominal pain hasn’t gone away but hasn’t gotten any worse either, keeping my fingers crossed that all holds together.
Till next time, I run do you?
