OMG! So, earlier this week, I finally got the Insanity Workout(Shaun T), and I was all pumped and excited to give it a try. Yesterday was my first day, and man was I WHIPPED!! emoticon I'm sure lack of exercise and gaining those extra 15 pounds over the past few months has something to do with it as well, but this thing is NO JOKE, SERIOUSLY! I felt like I was about to DIE, but I finished the entire 40 minutes! My highest heart rate was 183! Thank goodness for the water breaks.

After years of doing intense Tae Bo workouts, I figured, "PSHHH, Insanity can't be THAT bad", but boy was I WRONG! Today, in a few minutes, I'm going for Day 2, and there's a little quivering voice in my head that's SCARED TO DEATH to press PLAY because I know what I'm in for!! emoticon But I'm going anyway, TREMBLING and all...Let's GOOOOOO!!!!(Shaun T's voice)

    The workouts are worse in the beginning of the week. You can do it!! You just have to dig deep and decide before you press play than you can and will complete it! I can say this because I'm on my rest day LOL

    Don't be scared, just give it a try. After a week or two you'll be totally insane but loving it. I'm in my day 33.
    Keep going girl!! emoticon

    I totally get it! I was sweating, breathing hard and then he said "warm up"! I looked at my husband and started laughing because I was already worn out!

    emoticon I recognize that fear, because that was me too! My first week, I was questioning if I was ready for Insanity. My HR spiked like yours, and I needed to walk in place a bit to get control of my breathing. But now, I am finishing the 4th week and looking forward to the recovery week.

    Girl you can do it. Just kick SCARED in the butt and tell him to be gone. I'll be there with you in spirit...let me say that spirit, cuz there is no way I'm buying INSANITY.


    Burn those calories diva
