Eka Pada Koundinyanasana II

Eka Pada K… for short, and because Koundinyanasana is too hard to say.

Soon, I will have the strength and balance to do this pose without smashing my face into the ground.

Goals, people.

I need coffee. All. The. Time.

My every Monday…

“Warning: Coffee has given me unrealistic expectations of productivity.”

More coffee for your Monday:

Learnings:

  • 5 a.m. wake-up calls are not as awful as I thought (except Tuesday).
  • I get sleepy around 4 p.m., and I am grumpy until sleeping happens again.
  • I drink less coffee.
  • I am hungry all the time.
  • I am sore everywhere all the time.
  • Eyes can sweat. Fact.
  • Eye sweat makes your glasses fall off during push-ups.
  • Second-day hair is not possible when you’re doing Insanity.
  • Cardio Power and Resistance is quite possibly the worst ever.

I gained two pounds. I hope both were muscle. Fingers crossed.

On Sunday, my rest day, I woke up feeling antsy. I didn’t know what to do with myself so I did 30 minutes of stretching and took a 20-minute walk with the husband and the dog.

Feeling less antsy, butΒ I think waking up early every day and working out is messing with my “sleeping in” schedule.

Rude.

I need a vacation

I need a vacation.

In a forest.

Near mountains.

Hiking will happen.

Camping.

Or maybe a cabin.

Wild flowers.

Wild life.

Adventure.

The definition of insanity

inβ€’sanβ€’iβ€’ty

noun

“extreme foolishness or irrationality”

I cancelled my gym membership in May because I never went. I turned a room in my house into a a room where workouts happen. I gained weight.

Nonsense.

I decided to change my strategy to something a little more insane.

Insanity.

Insanity Fit Test

I started my 60 days this morning with the Fit Test.

Results:

  • 63 switch kicks
  • 30 squat jacks
  • 65 power knees
  • 10 power jumps
  • 7 globe jumps
  • 11 suicide jumps
  • 11 push-up jacks
  • 34 oblique planks

This is the definition of insanity.

If you couldn’t tell, I’m blogging again.
