2014 – Starting as I mean to carry on

Happy New Year!

Today I slept in a bit, and was woken up by the stealth bomber flying over my neighborhood en route to the Rose Parade. Last year , we saw it while hiking. So exciting!

The Workout of the Day was Insanity Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs.

Pure Cardio is probably my favorite workout DVD of all time. I reviewed it here. My sister did it with me last week – I think she’s a fan now too.

I also washed all of my makeup brushes, gave myself a chemical peel, laid out my work clothes, and packed tomorrow’s lunch (PB&J and raw veggies for snacking). I am starting the new year as I mean to carry on, with good habits and organization.
Now if only I could off the internet and get to bed for a 5am wakeup.

What’s your plan for the new year?


WOTD – Insanity Pure Cardio

Pure Cardio is my favorite of all the Insanity workouts. I feel like I’m in the scrum with these guys and when they cheer and punch the air, I do it along with the DVD because I’m so excited for this workout!

Pure Cardio seems pretty intimidating because there are no breaks in this workout. But if you break it down, Pure Cardio s really only a 15-minute workout. About 10 minutes for the warm-up, 5 minutes of stretch, 15 minutes of cardio, then another 5 minutes of stretch. Totally doable, right?

Doing Insanity again and seeing how far I’ve come makes me wonder if I could do Asylum. Although if I did, all the bouncing would probably get me evicted from my apartment so maybe not.

 What do you think about the Insanity workout series? What’s your favorite workout?
