Insanity: The Asylum - Day 13…this is starting to feel like a journal i keep and have been lost at sea for weeks on end :P
So yesterday was one hell of a calorie burning day. I did my 3 mile run, Asylum Back to core, worked (I’m a computer engineer so I got to sit a bunch) showed up early and did 20 minutes of Zumba as a warm up and then taught Turbo-Kick round 50. After careful calculations (HRM told me) I burned a total of 2216 calories yesterday!
This morning I wanted to sleep in (I’m a computer engineer that gets the luxury of working from home…kind of like lisbeth only i’m not psycho…most of the time). So I decided to start my workout at noon. I just finished Strength for the day and guess what? I’m still freaking tired. I upped my weights by 5lbs for most of the routine and have a good back and chest burn going right now. I’m getting so much stronger in my core it’s fun to feel it happening. When I twist, i feel the muscles engage. Doing these workouts is the closest thing to redesigning myself a new body I think I can get…without bionics.
But seriously, I’m in my 30s and I’m designing the body that is going to carry me for the rest of my life, I don’t want extra weight, I don’t want weak bones and joints and I don’t want heart problems. I want to be healthy and a live. I want to be the old guy no one quite knows how old he is but he looks a lot younger than you and is in better shape (basically Tony Horton)
I’m suppose to do a 3 mile run this evening. I’m not sure how that’s going to go as I am tired and sore, I can tell you I will attempt it and that’s 1/2 the battle. Note to self, when you burn off a solid pound of calories in a day, you need to be eating more.
Have a good one and keep pushing play. Warrior Dash is Saturday and i’m planning a body painting superhero the likes the world has never seen before!
