I started the Insanity Workout a couple weeks ago and had to quit it this past weekend. I have never had knee issues until doing Insanity and I developed them upon doing the series religiously. Not good and I know I need to listen to my body. So I think even though the series is meant to be done consistently, since my knees aren't OK with it, I'll just do random ones from time to time to still be able to kick my butt with some serious interval training.
Lately I've been doing more power yoga, riding my bike several miles, as well as doing various strength training with my own body weight and doing exercises with my resistance tubes. With working out hardcore over the last 2 months, I was able to gain 8 lbs. back and have been keeping it on which I am happy about. I am no longer counting calories like I was before (that was making me crazy). I am used to the process of eating more on my more intense workout days so I don't become calorie deficient and overly exhausted.
I was eating Mexican or Tex-Mex, every day for a long while. I used lean ground turkey, light sour cream, tomatoes, shredded Mexican cheese and used butter lettuce leaves as wraps instead of tortillas. They were so good and I started eating them again this week. :-) But this week I have added corn, black beans, peppers and green chilies to the ground turkey. YUM!
My workout yesterday was riding my bike for about 7 miles. Then came home and did some strength training with my resistance tubes and followed with pilates. I plan on doing yoga this evening but my mood could change by then and I could decide to do something else.
I hope you all are doing well!
