Results are in & I AM LOVING THEM! 8.5 Inches GONE! & Down 7.5lbs!
My Oh My What A DIFFERENCE! In only 60 Days!
Just goes to show hard work does pay off!
I can't stop staring at these photos! High five to myself!
Here’s what I did: My program began on November 1st and ended December 30th: 60 days long. I printed the calendar and followed the program guide every morning. Insanity's workouts for the first 30 days are about 40-50 minutes long & 6 days a week. The next 30 days are about 40-60 minutes long & also 6 days a week. You get a full day of rest on Sunday’s and an easier routine on Thursday’s. I personally wasn’t a fan of the “easier” routine on Thursday’s so I did CIZE or Turbofire, during this scheduled time.
I modified A LOT. We’re talking, literally every day! It wasn’t until the last 2 weeks that I was able to complete the warm up all the way through without modifying or taking a break. BTW, the warm up is 6 minutes long…it’s not hard physically, because the moves are simple. It’s hard mentally. What I mean is, your body CAN do the workouts, you just have to get your mind on board as well. You’ll breath heavier than you ever have before, you’ll sweat like no other, your heart will beat faster and you’ll probably drop at some point and say, I can’t do it anymore. There’s a reason why it’s called INSANITY. But, don’t let it scare you. You push through, or "Dig Deeper!" As Shaun T, the Amazing Trainer behind Insanity, says.
I did what I could, modified when I needed to, and most times completed 40-45 minutes of the workouts (Who’s got time for an hour??). And LOOK what happened to me?! I literally transformed! I LOVED this workout! The fat MELTED off of my body & I will definitely do it again!
I tried to stick to the eating plan as best I could and never missed a single day of my Shakeology. This is a vigorous workout so you get to eat a good amount, as in, all day long! I truly couldn't have made it through this program without my challenge group. I seriously LOVE this group of women! They're all so supportive, positive and up lifting. THEY are what kept me moving forward day in and day out. One of the gals keeps count with every post she puts up. "Day 49:60" I'd see her post every day for her own workout and think, "Okay only 11 more days to go! I got this!" It really became my driving force to stick with it. Never mind the fact that there's a counter on the app, that wasn't the point. It's the little things like the human element & relationships that keep you pushing play each day. I'm so grateful I fell into this!
BTW.......Did anyone pick up on the fact that this transformation happened during the holidays!?! Were talkin' Christmas, New Year's, work parties, bunco, wine - just because it's cold and it sounds good, AND cookies!! Oh so many damn, delicious, amazing, sugar filled cookies!?! Imagine what I could've done if it were January! Another high five to me!!

Happy Halloween! Can you believe it? Only 61 days left in 2016!? Which means there's still time to make a change in 2016 and I'm going to do it! I've committed to doing Shaun T's INSANITY and I can't wait to start! Tomorrow is day 1 of 60! And I'm going to document the whole dang thing.
Today Violet and I sat down after carving pumpkins and made our calendars. You gotta have a plan if you're going to succeed. The best part was looking at it wondering which workout was going to fall on Thanksgiving and Christmas! There's something totally super awesome knowing while everyone else is sleeping, I'm up and getting it done. I always feel so accomplished, like I'm one step ahead of everyone. It might sound crazy but it works for me and that's all that matters. #gottafindyourmotivation
So tomorrow it begins! I've taken my "before" photos. I've got my "before" measurements. INSANITY starts off strong with a FIT TEST, it's 30 minutes long and that's your workout for the day. I will do 5 FIT TEST's throughout the 60 days to see how I progress. Basically you do things like, Switch Kicks, Power Jacks, Power Knees and Suicide Jumps.....WAIT WHAT?! WTF did I get myself into?? It's 1 minute of each. So maybe I'll do 20 in a minute, and the ones with the word Suicide in it....Uh let's hope for more than 1 or 2 in that minute. Either way I'm going to attempt it all.
Tonight we'll be Trick or Treating, lighting our Cullen inspired Jack O Lantern's, (Did you get that reference? #Twillightforever) & eating some pumpkin pasta! We're doing it right this Halloween!
Tips To Survive Halloween:
1. Drink your Shakeology before trick or treating, it'll help curb your candy cravings.
2. Have a glass of wine before going out, it counts as 1 yellow and let's face it, as parents, we need it.
3. Enjoy it! It's one night a year and our kiddo's are so dang cute! And if they're like mine, they'll say "Trick or Treat, Smell my feet..." I was like??? Where'd you learn that? Turns out its in one of the books we read. #Momfail
But they're only little once.
