I took the recovery week as a partial week off. I ended up only working out two of the seven days. I was exhausted though from the first month, so it was a much needed break. Surprisingly month 2 is going great for me! I am sweating a lot more than during the exercises in month one. The videos are a mix of cardio and strength. Each workout video is about an hour long, as compared to 30 minutes during month one.
FoodI have upped my intake of protein, since I knew that this month was going to be a tough one. I have definitely noticed the protein helping, since I am not as tired as during month 1. If I only knew back then! So now I am in-taking 60 grams of protein or more a day. I am not sure what the recommended level is for someone on the insanity program, but maybe I might increase it as the weeks go on.I am still cutting out sugar intake as much as I can, but have snuck in some ice cream this past weekend.
