We return to our regularly scheduled programming

Okay... let's be clear.  I HAVE been working out since June.  I promise.  I just haven't been blogging about it.  I was trying to do the whole alternating P90X2 and Insanity each week, which was awful.  I didn't like taking a week off of weight training.  I didn't feel like I was making progress in either work out.

So, after trying that for the Phase 2 of P90X2, I gave it up and focused on P90X2 Phase 3.  I felt good.  I'm definitely still working on my tone.  My weight and body fat percentage are still up from where I'd like them to be, but I really am more at peace with it.  I'm strong, fit, and buff. ;)

I started Insanity a week ago, right as Leadership Academy started.  I managed to work out two days during Academy, which was awesome because I usually just run three miles.  This time, I did Plyo Cardio and Pure Cardio (the second with my friend, Angel).  I felt great!      

Here are my fit test results, which I did on July 30 and will be repeating every two weeks:
Switch Kicks: 48
Power Jacks: 58
Power Knees: 80 (left)
Power Jumps: 25
Globe Jumps: 9
Suicide Jumps: 13
Push-Up Jacks: 13
Low Plank Obliques: 48

Already, I have noticed that my knees are sore.  I squat down to get something from a lower cabinet and it's an effort to get back up.  I'll need to return to regular knee icing.
