A new day..

Monday, February 25, 2013

“Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb” ---Unknown Author

I am definitely seeing changes since i started Insanity. I want to post before and after pictures, but I'm too shy. emoticon It's been a week and I am feeling stronger. I am still trying to get over my illness, but still try to stay on my workout schedule. My son has helped me stay on task because he too is doing Insanity. Being part of the Starfish 5% 8week winter challenge will keep me focused and I am happy that it will help me reach my May 5th goal. I'm thanking all my spark friends who
keeps me on my toes and so ready to go-go-go.. emoticon emoticon


it's a New day....

    First of all, congratulations on doing Insanity. It's definitely a hard, demanding and high fitness level program. Keep on trying and I'm sure you'll see amazing results!
    And that's where the pictures' subject comes in. Take the pictures for yourself. Seeing your progress in the mirror or on the scale is different to an actual "before and after" comparison. These pictures will become your motivation for sustaining your healthy habits for a lifetime. So, take those pictures even if you never intend to post them here.
    Good luck with your goals!

    I understand the feeling of embarrasment. I always thought of it as "gee, what if I fail and those pictures are all out there to highlight tha failure". I stil ahven't posted but I did take the photos and and when I feel more comfortable with it, notice the WHEN not IF, I will have them to be proud of the progress/success.
    I think you shoudl at least have them.

    Best wishes on your progress.

    I agree on the pics. Take them for your sake, but don't worry about sharing them until, or if, you are comfortable. Before, during and after pics are a true story, and are highly motivating, I'm so glad I have a comparison now., but it took a long time for me to share them. I was way too embarassed, and ashamed, but I'm so proud to see the difference now. Truly, the pics are an amazing way to really see your progress.. I can't believe the difference. Great job on your progress so far.

    Take care!!

    I've always wanted to try Insanity -- it sounds really hard. Keep posting your progress!

    As for the pictures, you don't need to post them, but definitely take them. It's sometimes hard to see progress during the journey and these snapshots will show you how far you've come.

    Good for you. Don't push too hard if you are feeling under the weather. It could do more harm than good.
