Asylum 2 – Day 27 – Championship + Fit Test (Sudden Death OT) – Asylum 2 COMPLETE!

18 May

…And that my friends, is the end of Asylum 2. I reached a solid 8 rounds on the fit test. It’s harder for me to keep track of what round I am on while trying to remember the sequence and perform it as fast as possible. Who knows, I may have done 10 rounds but lost track. 😀

I’m still unsure of what I want to do next but one thing for sure is that I’m taking the next week off with some distance cycling and running.

I’ve lost a total of 15.2 pounds during Asylum 2 and I’m at the lowest weight I’ve been in 3 or more years, 166.6 pounds! What helped me the most is doing a juice fast on the last week of Asylum. I lost 10.6 pounds during that week of juice cleansing which would take me a month to lose. I’ve lost a complete 23.6 pounds from Asylum 1 and 2 combined and the truth is I still have at least 20 more pounds to lose! I still have no abs, no muscle definition, just kind of thinned out.

What Asylum taught me is that diet is KING. Learning and having discipline on making correct food choices is what many of us struggle with. Saying no while others around us indulge in sweet and fatty foods takes the strongest of wills. Having a support group helps with this, and is why I posted everyday even if it was just me talking to myself at times.

Asylum 2 – Day 26 – Off-Day Stretch and 5K Run

17 May

Woke up and did Off-Day Stretch. The sun finally popped out and also ran a 5k in the park. I have Championship tomorrow which is the last scheduled workout of the program then I’m finished. I don’t think is harder than Game Day so I got it in the bag. I’m happy to report that I have surpassed my weight loss goal and I officially have until Monday to keep dropping pounds which is Day 28, the last day of Asylum 2.

I’m on  Day 6 of my 7 day juice cleansing and almost gave in to popcorn, candy and a Slurpee when I went to watch that cheesy Godzilla movie. I sat there watching it while my stomach turned and grumbled probably more to the bad movie than to being hungry. I did my stretching and ran a 5K in a fasted state and I’m down 9.6 pounds since last Monday. What I lost in less than a week would take me a month to shed.  

Asylum 2 – Day 23 – Upper Elite / Not So Fast Food

14 May

Out of all the Asylum workouts, Upper Elite is the toughest workout for me. I excel in the agility cardio based workouts but when it comes to endurance strength training, I’m up against fatigue and my will.

With four more workout days towards finishing Asylum 2, I’m still undecided on what to do next. It seems like I flip flop on what I want to do every few days. I was going to jump on another cardio bodyweight non-Beachbody program but I haven’t mastered Asylum. I’m considering taking a week off and starting the Asylum hybrid. But this time with a pull up bar.

I was close to giving in and enjoying a burger with fries today and sabotaging my juice fast. What stopped me was that I’ve already spent so much on fresh produce to throw it all away today. Plus, I feel like I got over the hardest day, day 2, and my body finally adjusted to the juice cleansing. I’m not always hungry like yesterday. I’m on Day 3 and was please to have slimmed down an extra 2 pounds today. Having release nearly everything that was in my intestines, I feel the juice fully absorbs into my body. This is the point in the fast where the body finally begins to heal.
