Life after Insanity
Sunday, January 17, 2016      2 comments

I think I pretty much talked myself INTO not completing the full 2 months. Those last 2 weeks were right at Christmas and between the impromptu socializing with lots of alcohol flowing, and having to move out for a week to make room for a visit... Read more
Insanity fit test #4
Monday, December 21, 2015      0 comments

So today was my 4th test and I was again happy with the result. I should have done this yesterday, but I was tired and was not able to resist a few beers, so I did it today. They tack it on in addition to the usual 60 min routine, so tonight's... Read more

So neither can I. I discovered a few new reports today that I have not noticed before. What lead to this was a bad binge last night. It's was not pretty and I logged it all this morning. I have to be honest with myself and can not blam... Read more

Frustration does not even come close to describing how I am feeling right now. I just completed week 2 of month 2 and this week has been by far the worst. I just don't feel like I am getting anywhere. Even though I try and be happy that m... Read more

All the horror stories about Month 2 - Max Insanity are no exaggeration! Yesterday I hit a wall for the first time. My body just felt like it did not want to move and I was not looking forward to the workout. My imagination was probably what w... Read more

iNsanity - heading into week 4 more confused than ever!
Saturday, November 21, 2015      4 comments

Firstly, I am very proud of myself for finishing 3 whole weeks, no slip ups on the workout front. I've also been consistent in my goal of drinking less beer! Week 1 I had 3 nights where alcohol sent my cals skyrocketing. Week 2 was just one ni... Read more

So funny that I was really exited to do the test again. I must really like self punishment:) I was happy with the results - I have improved on all the exercises - it is a 20 min test where you count how many reps of each one you can do in ... Read more
End of week 2 - checkāœ…
Saturday, November 14, 2015      1 comments

It's amazing what your body will allow you to do to it - 2 full weeks of Insanity- that's 6 days a week of crazy moves that it certainly is not used to. Small loss on the scale this week, but I was feeling great nevertheless. Until last nigh... Read more
Week 2 - plagued by doubt
Tuesday, November 10, 2015      4 comments

So I just completed day 3 of week 2. Tonight I was feeling tired and did not start the workout with a lot of enthusiasm or energy. Once into it though, I felt like I worked hard. I'm so glad I wear a HR monitor - it really encourages me duri... Read more

THIS one was a killer - Insanity Day 3
Wednesday, November 04, 2015      1 comments

wow - Pure cardio today was tougher than the others. Not sure if it was the fact that each day my muscles are that bit more tired. My calves were pretty stiff so I made sure not to push too much - don't want an injury. Did more in zone 4 (hard... Read more
