Coffee & Tonya.

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

First things first, everything is going well here! I'm working my way through "Recovery" week with Core Cardio & Balance. It's a nice little break from the Insanity of the rest but it's still a nice little workout. I can definitely feel the burn, and I'm still sweating! Though I'm sure it helped that yesterday it was almost 80 degrees in my house when I worked out, but hey, whatever works!

Secondly, I love coffee, I love it so much, and sometimes I feel like I NEED it. I was born and raised in Seattle, coffee is in my blood. But I know it's bad for me, especially the way I drink it, with cream and sugar. It would be way easier to ween myself off it if it wasn't so readily available! Awhile back I switched over to tea and gave up coffee completely, that was nice, that was also around the time I dropped 30+ lbs. That tells you something doesn't it?

And finally, saving my rant for last. Let me just say this first, I love Insanity, I love Shaun T. I enjoy the videos... for the most part. I DO NOT enjoy Tonya. I hate having to watch her on the screen, I try my hard to focus on other people. I get SO TIRED of seeing the facial expressions she makes, sometimes I feel like she thinks she's making an adult film. Seriously. Some people have expressive faces, I get it, I'm one of them, I show my feelings on my face. But Tonya.. it's over the top exaggerated. If you're filming a workout, there is NO REASON to act. We get it, you're in great shape, you move the fastest and do more reps than almost anyone, there's no reason to act like you're killing yourself any more than you are. Apparently I drank my haterade this morning, but I just needed to get that out.

    I do like my cup of joe every now & again. I am thinking of ordering the Insanity for me & hubby but I just don't know? You guys make it sound like fun but Tonya now. I may not want my hubby watching her? Is it that bad.

    God bless & enjoy everyday!

    I close my eyes too! I've almost run into the tv a few times. It helps me focus. I am openly terrified of the coming month.

    Hahahahaha!! She does drive me pretty nuts too...
    That being said, I started noticing that I try not to look at the tv any more than I have to. For one, During the other workouts, if I focus too much on them then I try to keep up with their pace, and that is nuts, because even though I have REALLY improved, I cannot keep up with her or Shaun, and I shouldn't try to yet. I actually have a tendency to close my eyes during portions of the workout. Is that bad? I am a little afraid I am going to knock something over....
    I, too, LOVE coffee. I have tried to cut back, and I only drink it a few days a week instead of every day, but's so good.
    Keep up the awesome work! Only a few more days and we will move on to the second month. I'm secretly terrified (maybe not so secretly).
