I maxed out!

As mentioned here, i finished doing the Insanity max:30 workout program. Its 8 weeks long but i finished it after 9 weeks because i skipped a week (I think it was week 6) and since my intent was to do each workout, i picked up from where i’d left off and pushed through till the end.

I say pushed through because it wasn’t easy. I actually wanted to quit several times (in week 7). I just wanted out. Ironically when week 8 rolled in, i felt sad that the program was coming to an end. Anyway, am happy i did it. It was harder than i thought it would be but it was definitely worth it. No matter how difficult i found some workouts to be, i felt proud to have at least put in some work for the day.

My max out times were all over the place as you will see below. I got to a point where i didn’t really care how much further i went. I was just working out. Still, i kept writing down my max out times.

    • Hi Nelly, Sometimes i struggle, other times i don’t. I wash my hair 1-3X times a week and sometimes do the daily rinsing like you do and since i tend to wear my hair in a bun/ponytail, thats not a problem. The struggle comes in when i’ve actually styled my hair (straightened it or when i have it curly) and don’t want to ‘disturb’ and/or ruin the style by washing.
