Plyometric Cardio Circuit
Cardio Power & Resistance
I unfortunately missed some workouts this week with the Thanksgiving holiday, but I didn’t notice any loss in performance. I did manage to get a very long walk in over the weekend because it was unseasonably warm outside and I needed to return some materials to the library. The last time we hit the trails near our home, I was reminded of how nice it would be to have the tires replaced on my mountain bike.
This is my last week of the first phase of Insanity. I’m amazed I still cannot anticipate the next exercises. I find I still love the workouts and my endurance is getting better everyday. I still have to take more breaks than the regularly scheduled 30 second water breaks, but they are becoming shorter and fewer in frequency.

Thanksgiving was interesting as it was my first holiday being 100% vegan. I made a cranberry and persimmon sauce, a mushroom risotto and a kind of vegan shepherds pie or spanakopita with phyllo dough instead of pie crust. Other than two dinner rolls and half a bottle of wine, that is all I ate for Thanksgiving dinner. I was very satisfied and full and curiously, I didn’t feel deprived or tempted by the traditional turkey dinner. Actually, I’m surprised I lost 0.2 pounds considering the amount of olive oil I used in the veggie pie I made. Thankfully the cranberry sauce I made was sweet enough to keep the lure of pumpkin pie (my favorite) at bay. I’m definitely looking forward to getting back to my new normal next week.
