INSANITY and a dinner date

Before Chris and I did the first DVD for Insanity, we had to fuel up with some breakfast.  We each had half of an omlette ( 2 eggs and one egg white) and a banana chocolate chip protein muffin from Trader Joe’s.  I also had some of the “Very Green” juice smoothie but Chris wanted no part of this.

On the infomercials they always show the before and after pictures…so here are our before pictures!  One of us is more excited than the other 🙂

The first workout for INSANITY was Cardio Plyometrics.


The warmup was a bunch of cardio moves to get the heart pumping.   We did high knees, the Heisman (kind of like jumping from side to side on one foot), butt kicks, jumping jacks, etc.  After the warmup we did about 6 minutes of stretching…and then the insanity started.  The rest of the workout was circuits of about 5 exercises that we repeated about 5 times per circuit.  We then did each circuit 3 times.  We were given a short water break between each circuit and believe me, we needed that break to catch our breath.  The entire workout was 40 minutes in length and it was very challenging.  It’s great because both Chris and I have plenty of room to do it at the same time and no equipment is needed.  We were nice and sweaty at the end!


A little while later it was time for lunch and I made chili lime turkey burgers on whole wheat hamburger buns.  We had pita chips and “less guilt” guacamole on the side.  The guacamole is made with greek yogurt to make it healthier and it tastes really good.


For dinner, we met our friends Dave and Melissa at Jesse Wong’s.  Please note:  Chris is not asleep and Dave is not wearing a wig.  He actually has very nice hair that belongs to him :).

I ordered the seaweed salad to start and the honey sesame chicken as my entree.  The chicken was very good and the sauce was not too heavy.  I loved that the broccoli was super green and not overcooked.  Chris went the sushi route and had the Baltimore Roll, Spider Roll, and Spicy California Roll.

Great company and great food!  Annabelle had a great time too 🙂


Big day tomorrow!  Run with my buddy Frank, 2nd day of Insanity with Chris, and a get together with a bunch of great friends in the afternoon!
