Spent all last night at the ER, now what?
So I'm needing some advice.
I spent all last night until 6:30 am this morning at the ER with my husband. He is doing fine now, he has some issues with his stomach that can be a little scary sometimes.
After staying up all night, I had... Read more
Stealing LRSILVER's idea! My motivation for today...
LRSILVER has been doing this fantastic thing of finding things that motivate her daily. I've been asking people what their motivation is, what keeps them going, and finding that either some people really know or they don't know. For me, I thin... Read more
Week 1 Insanity - Done
Now on to week two!
I didn't know what to expect starting Phase I all over again. Ok. Honestly, I expected that it would be easier. Guess what. It isn't. But that is a good thing! It is a really hard workout. Actually, I'm really looki... Read more
Fit Test - Phase One Part Two
Wow....I can barely type. I never expected the fit test to be so hard, I mean, after all, I have done it a couple of times already. After a week off with the flu, some things I did better and one thing I did worse, but without a doubt I was wi... Read more
Arrrg, the flu strikes again!
So I finished my first Phase of Insanity, got to the recovery week, and caught the flu. BAD. So I'm going to be doing Phase I again. At least I got through the first phase. I don't think doing it again is necessarily a bad thing, because it w... Read more

Insanity week 4 and I think my calves are falling off...
Yup, middle of week four and for some odd reason my calves are killing me! Week 1 I was sore, but not week 2 or 3, but for some odd reason week 4 is really killing my shoulders and calves. I've cleaned up my diet, added a lot more protein and k... Read more
Nearing the end of week 3 Insanity...
I've been trying to be perky about my Insanity results up til now, but it is hard to be excited when you've lost a 1/2 inch from your waist when your workout partner (my husband) loses 6 inches from his chest. Quite frankly, it has been hard to ... Read more

Today is Fit Test day
Today is the day where I take part in the grueling fit test and remeasure all of my soft wobbly bits to see if they are less soft and wobbly. I am certainly hoping to see some results and that the results I think I see aren't all in my mind. Wis... Read more
Insanity Week 2 Finished
Last night I finished Week 2 of Insanity with my husband. We got into bed totally exhausted, but feeling like we have really accomplished a lot. Suddenly it sunk in; we've been doing that crazy work out for 2 WEEKS. It made me really proud of my... Read more
My husband just bought me this dress:
I hear it is a good motivator to have a goal garment - so this is definitely mine!... Read more
Half Way through Week 2 Insanity
Today was SO hard. I didn't want to work out. At all.
I was pretty proud of myself because I did it anyway and I realized something about myself that I would never have admitted before, I am very extrinsically motivated.
I tried tel... Read more
Week 2 Officially Begun!
Last night I finished Week 2's first Insanity workout, Cardio Resistance. I forced myself to work REALLY hard. Oddly enough, I'm not sore (the aerobic part killed me). I was really proud of myself for making myself get in there and do it. It was... Read more
