I was given this story by a sparkfriend of mine, Casey. I love this story. We also have it in an illustrated book. The kids loved it when they were growing up. I think one of the things that hits me hard about this story is that we don't have th... Read more

I did the Insanity Fit Test for the second time today. The first time was 2 weeks ago and those numbers are the first numbers. Today’s numbers are the second, just for comparison. Two weeks ago when I did this, I was hurting and needed to ... Read more

Friday, January 22, 2010 9 comments
The Insane Calorie Burn? I had someone ask me last week (sorry, I don’t remember who) how many calories I burned with the Insanity workouts I started about 10 days ago. I hesitated to answer that question because, being new to the workout, ... Read more

Insanity Days 6, 7, & 8 I took a little break from blogging about this workout. Basically just had a full weekend & didn’t get around to it until now. Day 6 was Plyo Cardio Circuit again, a repeat from Day 2. You can see the break down... Read more

Today was Cardio Recovery day. My blog won’t be very long about it because there’s really not that much to say. This workout was about 35 minutes long and was designed to give you a break from the cardio of the last 2 days. Shaun T. never ... Read more

So, according to the handy dandy workout calendar that came with Insanity, today was Cardio Power & Resistance day. Okay, like yesterday, I’m not sure what I was expecting. I didn’t preview this one. I went into it now knowing anything about it ... Read more

I confess. I lied. To you. And to myself. I have to come clean right now. I’m a junkie. I’m having withdrawal pains. I need a fix. Someone needs to get me into a 12 step program. Hello. I’m Laurie. And I’m a numberaholic. In my New Year’s ... Read more
My New Year’s Non-Resolutions
Friday, January 01, 2010 5 comments
My New Year’s Non-Resolutions I’ve never really been a fan of New Year’s Resolutions. They always seem so vague. Their name alone gives the impression that they are just for the new year, and when the new year is no longer new, say by the 2... Read more
