Asylum Day 10 - Third of the Way to Done!

Well, today marks the 1/3rd point in my Asylum workout program.  Lucky for me, Day 10 is a stretch only day because I am sore today.  This workout is killing my upper back and shoulders but hopefully in a good way.

What I can say about this series so far is that it is probably great for athletes looking to improve their game.  For people with the will power to follow the diet plan that comes with it, you'll probably get very lean and strong.  I though cannot follow the diet, or any diet, so I take what results I can get from just doing the workouts alone and attempting to eat better.  Notice I say attempting.  We will not mention the 10 chocolate chip cookie emotional eating binge last night or the box of Samoas that disappeared over the weekend.

Results so far - well, I did wear a somewhat fitted tee shirt today with my jeans.  I do not usually do that because of those darn love handles.  So, I guess my mid section has gone down somewhat.  Other than that, any visible results will be hard for me to pinpoint right now as it's been a crappy week and I just feel icky, ugly and bloated.  But the workout is fun and has been keeping my attention so that's a good thing.

One thing I love about this is that the workouts are all under an hour, most between 38 and 45 minutes which is ideal.  There is one workout called Game Day which is the mother workout and it is about 60 minutes.  I will do that for the first time tomorrow on Day 11.  Eeek!  I also love that the program lasts only 30 days.  After that you can chose to repeat it or do one of the hybrid programs outlined in the package which combine Asylum with either P90X or Insanity or just move on to something new.  It's too soon to say for sure, but I think the 30 day Asylum/P90X workout may follow for me.

Pics to follow at Day 30.  Would love to hear if any of you have considered this workout or what you are doing these days!

You can follow my girl Laura for more in depth reviews and info about each of the workouts in Asylum at her blog, A Mom's Journey to Staying Fit & Fabulous.  Fit and Fabulous she is too.  Laura has been doing Beachbody workout programs back to back and in combination for over a year and looks rockin'!  Go check out her triceps.  :)

Have a great week.


  1. good to hear, I to do not follow a rael diet plan. I am doing the P90x, week 4 right now. It has been tough but worth it. I am definitely looking more fit and muscular, and much more stretchy!

  2. AWWWW.... Thanks for the shout out girl!!! I can't wait to hear what you think of Gameday. I previewed it today and OMG. Shoulders are killing me too from Speed & Agility... damn f'ing ladder. ARGH!!!

    Jealous that you are 1/3 of the way there. LOL... 29 days to go for me now!!

  3. Jenn- Woohoo. I love P90X. I'm sure you will have great results. More stretchy is awesome. :)

    Laura - No problemo. YOu are like my BB idol right now. I hear you about that ladder - it's mean and mine always moves around to find it's way under my feet. The 30 days will fly by!

  4. I admire your dedication to this obviously difficult program. I hope you have a great day and that those aches and pains soon go away. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
