Well, Project Warrior Goddess is officially a week old, and I have already learned / achieved quite a bit 😀
The first thing I have learned is that starting Insanity during a heatwave, is complete and utter, well, insanity 😀 we are not very good at heatwaves in this country, generally a couple of days at 23 or 24 degrees is good weather. Weeks at 27-30 degrees is somewhat unexpected. Not many places have air con because most of the time it would be unnecessary! Consequently every time I do insanity or anything more than a walk it leads me thinking I might need to sleep in a bucket!!
Sunday was the hottest day so far about 30 and luckily it was my insanity rest day. That doesn’t mean I did nothing (of course) but it does mea that the something I did was a walk in the evening 🙂 I dragged mark along with me and I got up to 12.9k steps which is excellent for the first day of my million step challenge 😊
For some reason he also tried to eat my hat, I can only assume all the walking had starved him you’ll be pleased to know my hat survived in tact!!
Monday (day 8) was the day I accidentally wore a jumper to work in a heat wave…
Luckily I had a gym top to wear while I was walking at lunchtime and after work…
After all that walking it was time to bite the bullet and do the days Insanity work out… it was Cardio power and resistance which involves such exciting things as power jacks, power jumps, moving press ups and hurdle jumps 😱
I actually worked out in just my leggings and a sports bra…I was at home and no one else was there, I don’t think that will happen in public anytime soon!!
Incidentally the other thing I have learned in week 1 if Project Warrior Goddess is that just doing this and deciding I am going to fight and change has already changed the way I feel about everything!! I am walking with my head high and my virtual axe held out to fight off any doubts!!
And the system is working, I am feeling better and dancing better already 😁
