Hi all!

This summer, I started and stopped the Insanity program twice. Usually, I'd get into Week 2, miss a workout, feel like I threw the whole schedule off, and end up quitting.

That's not to say I haven't done other things. I began tracking caloric intake again, exercising (Body Combat, Zumba, cycling, and walking in particular), and really attempting to heal my relationship with food.

But I want to complete Insanity. I like the workouts. They remind me of things we did for tennis, they leave me sweating like crazy, and I feel like I'm honestly working hard for something. I know I can do it, and the results will be fantastic.

So July 1st rolled around, AND it was on a Monday - both incredibly convenient for Insanity's workout schedule. I took the Fit Test, and saw marked improvements over my stats from the other times I tried it (and that's on top of doing Zumba about a half hour prior). I'll post fit test stats when I get home.

I also took measurements, and I'm going to give the nutrition plan an honest try. I've read a lot that my weight will probably stall, but I just want to give this program the best shot. If I give it my all, I think it'll give me a lot in return. ;)

This post is to keep you guys updated, and to ask that YOU keep ME accountable! :)

Thanks! Day 2 workout is in a few to you soon!

    Thanks! The intensity level of Insanity is huge. Part of me wonders how I would have performed when I was in my peak physical condition...I'm sure it would still kick my butt!

But even small exercise and diet changes over the summer helped improve my stats. I'm sure you've improved overall, as well! :)

    emoticon emoticon Best of luck to you. We bought Insanity about a year ago but we were both so out of shape that we couldn't do much of anything. I want to give it another go now that I've been running/boxing/etc. and see if I've improved any.
