Hello all. I'm currently finishing up Insanity, finishing up week 7. I have 2 more weeks to go and then I have decided I will start ChaLean Extreme. After a lot of researching and reviewing and back and forth on which program to start next I decided on ChaLean Extreme because it will tone me up quick. I want to tone up to start Insanity again in about 3 months or so.
I'm a 31 year old mom of 4. A step-daughter 13, a son 10 and twins (boy and girl) 7. I'm a nurse in a hospital and I sit at a desk all day and schedule out patient procedures. I love my job but its different than being active on a floor like I was previously. Before that I took a year off of work to stay at home while my twins went to Kindergarten. I gained a lot of weight (well about 20-25 lbs). When I came back to work last summer I lost 15 lbs just by taking the stairs and eating better. Then I gained about 5 lbs back. I'm still uncomfortable with my weight, clothes dont fit like the used to but I'm trying to work on that.
I'm currently 5'5" and weight 150 lbs. I don't care so much about the scale as I do how my clothes fit and how I feel so my main goal is to tone up and then work on what the scale says. I'd like to fit back into a size 6-8, right now I'm about a size 10-12.
I'm very excited to be continuing on to a healthy lifestyle after being a couch potato with no will power. I've learned that only you can decide how you want to live your life and only you can make the changes needed to be healthy. I never thought I'd finish Insanity and now I am absolutely floored that I'm close to finishing AND planning on finishing it a 2nd time in the near future!
