don’t shoot me…

bit ironic my subject is I suppose…  coming from a photographer 🙂  I actually made an “appointment” with a co-worker for a little fitnessy photo shoot coming soon.  Hoping to get some good pics to share showing my Paleo transformation.  He penciled me in to his day timer as “shoot Kate” haha…

I have to correct a mistake I made yesterday.  My fatasticly fuzzy brain did me wrong once again.  “BRING IT!” is actually the catch phrase for Tony Horton’s P90x workout system.  Also a great workout, but not geared towards the specific result I am looking to achieve.  Shawn T belts out “DIG DEEPER!!” as you sweat your way through the insanity of Insanity.  Even though I reeeeeally didn’t feel like today for whatever reason, I popped in day 2 – Cardio Power & Resistance and commit myself to the 40 minutes of craziness.  For anyone who hasn’t tried it, let me tell you… it’s awful and awesome all at the same time.  After the 10 minute warm-up (which for many newcomers I’m sure is horrifying as I have to admit the first time I tried “holy F*** that was only the WARM-UP?!?!” went through my head), there is  stretch session where (if we have something in common) you will leak sweat profusely for a few minutes before getting into the actual workout.  Then when you feel as though your heat could pound out of your chest and/or you may hurl at any moment, the glorious cool-down session brings another insanity level of sweating which really doesn’t seem to let up for 30ish minutes after you turn the awful/awesome thing off.  Once it’s all said and done, I can’t wait to do it all again tomorrow.  I’m just sick and twisted like that though.  :p 

Day one of my sugar detox.  I was rather peeved when I woke up thinking about dried cranberries and walnuts.  I told myself to get over it.  It’s a bit like quitting smoking…  but I’m telling myself it will get better.  And yes, I talk to myself sometimes.  Don’t even try to suggest you don’t.  😉

Bring it!

I made the provincials team for ball hockey 🙂 woot-woot!  I’ve decided that it would be a great idea to build up my speed and endurance before the tournament which is 2 weeks away.  Not that I’m “known” for anything in ball hockey, but if there is one thing, I’m a runner.  Wish I was a goal scorer, but digging in the corners and just being a general pain in the but is kinda my “thing”.  Stick with what you’re good at, right??

Back to the speed/endurance idea… I popped in day 1 of Insanity this morning.  When Ange and I first tried the program, I remember the first month of it helping my hockey so I figured I’ll give it another shot.  Holy balls!  I was sweating so much I couldn’t even write about it!  I wanted to… cause I was all revved up by the time the DVD was done, but I didn’t want to put my computer through a sweat shower.  Probably has something to do with the temperature in my apartment, but regardless… I listened to Shawn T’s demand to BRING IT!!  Good times 🙂

Tomorrow is day 1 of my little sugar detox challenge.  Everyone needs a challenge, right?  Somewhere to channel your determination and focus so they don’t get stale.  It’s going to be tough though.  As I was sitting in traffic today on my way to work, thoroughly enjoying my all-time favourite snack of dried cranberries and walnuts, I realized I might as well, cause the walnuts will have to come without their perfectly delicious counter-parts for the next week…  but I’m not going to cave.  (I say that now, I hope I’m still saying it after a few days…)  Wish me luck!  And to anyone who’s joining me… good luck to YOU 🙂  We can do this!
