Hardest. Workout. Ever.

Shaun T. & I

Today Sheila, me and about 100 other people attended Shaun T.'s Insanity Workout class. The workout was held at the Aurora Police Academy Gym. This was kind of cool because Insanity was taped in a gym. It added to the atmosphere and experience.

Let me just say this was one of the HARDEST workouts I have ever done! We started the workout by doing Shaun's famous warm-up. For those of you who have done Insanity know the warm-up is as hard as the actual workout. The warm-up consists of 3 rounds of cardio exercises. With each round you step up your intensity. This is called Max Interval Training, which is the science behind Insanity. After the warm-up my lungs were on fire and I thought I was going to get sick. But I stuck it out. 

We then stretched and went right into the hour long workout. Shaun was super motivating as he walked around the room helping people with form or pushing them a little harder.  He came around and helped me twice. Once while we were doing the "mummy kicks"and again when we were doing a jumping exercise. It was a really cool and an
unforgettable experience!

After the workout we had the opportunity to get a picture with Shaun T. and talk to him for a bit. He was a great sport about all of the women gawking over his body and begging him to take his shirt off.  
This workout/ meet and greet with Shaun T. is probably highlight #3 of the year!

You know what else I noticed... my BACK feels great! I am ready to get back into a workout regimen. I feel that my eating habits are in check and I am ready to really bring it!

If you recall I finished the 10 Day Eating Clean Challenge on Thursday. Sheila pointed out to me that this time I did it for myself. She's right! We didn't set a consequence. We said we were going to do it and we did! What a great feeling.

This past Friday I rewarded myself with a Starbucks non-fat vanilla latte and a reduced fat banana chocolate loaf. I ate clean for lunch and then Preston and I went on a love-cheat-meal-date to Salsa Brava. Today I am back to eating strict. The final Work Weight Loss Weigh-In is this Wednesday. I gotta stay focused!


  1. It was an experience of a lifetime!

  2. I'm seriously SO jealous! So happy you got to experience that!!

  3. Rhonda it was AMAZING! Best workout in a long time. Much harder than Insanity. He really killed us!!
