Insanity Max30 Update and Friday stuff



of course I am pumped it’s Friday. I think Fridays are my favorite day. What about you?

I have a few things to share with you before I start talking about my Insanity workouts.

Last night after Boot Camp I came home and whipped up a Shake with PB2 powder, Chocolate Shakeology, almond milk and some ice. It was pretty amazing and I call it my Reese’s Shake.


Literally I came home from class and we had a giant bowl of mini Reese’s staring at me from Valentine’s day. They were a treat for Marc from my mom.

I said to Marc man I would love a Reese’s!! So I made my own, it was a lot healthier and it hit the spot!! Who doesn’t like a chocolate & peanut butter combo ;)

This week I have gotten in some awesome workouts. They were by no means easy but I worked hard. I’m happy that I have a couple rest days lined up this weekend.


I wanted to chat with you a little about my Insanity Max30 progress. It’s been about 21 days since I started which is nuts because I feel like it was yesterday.. but after 3 weeks I can honestly say I am stronger. My pushups are better and my cardio endurance has bumped up. I don’t get hit as soon with my Max out zone as I did the first week. It just goes to show you that you can get stronger and you can improve if you put the time in!

So far the 30 minute workouts have been plenty. When I do them I have to make sure Ava is occupied or someone is watching her, or maybe she’s napping! It’s great if you are short on time and you want to drip sweat.

As far as the moves, they are similar to what I do with my Boot Camp class but the workout is structured a little different.

Here are a couple of the exercises I did yesterday:

Shoulder Pushups or “V-Pushups”


They are a total upper body toner.


Plank Knee-Taps


I like these a lot. You need full body strength and good balance to do these!

Okay I gotta run.. time to head to the YMCA for some training!

I can’t wait for our weekend to start. Tomorrow morning we will be heading to Rhode Island to visit family. I am excited to get away for the weekend. It’s always relaxing and stress free when we are there and I know Ava will be super pumped to play with her cousin Natalie!

Have a great weekend!

Do you have any fun plans lined up for the weekend?

Have you ever committed to a program like insanity?
