Insanity
3/14/12 6:45 PM
My true sanity and insanity are at my home emoticon

I am 40 years old, married, have 6 sons which 4 are still home, work full time and have other things I do in the community and I LOVE my life.

I am overweight and out of shape. I have to get stronger and healthier.

I started Insanity Monday and I am on day 3. I am SO thankful this was a recovery day. I needed that.

I am very proud of myself for taking this challenge. It tru;y is a physical and mental challenge for me. It is awesome that my sons and husband cheer me on! It helps me "dig deeper"!

I wanted to start this thread so I could keep up with my progress every other day or so and maybe help others who are thinking of starting an exercise program and if I can do this then anyone can.

I am excited at the changes I am making to my body and soul!

Be back in a day or 2! Happy Insanity emoticon

Day 4...

Feeling pretty good today after my workout.

Worked all day then baseball practice for my 8 yr old and then home to cook.

My food intake has been SO clean. I am very happy with my results so far. I will measure next Saturday to see if I have lost any inches. I am not weighing myself until after the 60 days. My starting weight is 220. I think or either 215...my scales say I am 5 more lbs when I am on my heels opposed to when I am in the middle. WOW I need some new scales.

I can tell my endurance is building. I am not running out of breathe as fast and sticking to it til the end!

Til next time.....

WOW! I'm so anxious reading about beginners on Insanity! I'm starting once I get my videos in a couple of days, reading your posts are bracing me for it all. I have a pretty busy schedule as well and I'm worried my meal plan will be affected by this. I'm ready to make this life change to say the least emoticon

I have an extremely busy life but I knew if I wanted to change my body and maintain my weight, which I have for 20 years, I had to change mind first body second and it is working so far.

As far as the meals go I am struggling to eat 1500 calories a day and need to be eating around 1800. But 1500 is working for me and somedays I will get more or less depending. The key is having something other than the snack machine at work on hand to eat.

Good Luck and if you have questions theres alot of us in here!!!

Ok.. I took yesterday as my off day so I can stay in sync with the calender. I guess I am OCD like that. Not to mention 1 son had baseball practice for 2 hours and I got to catch up on facebook and emails and a little reading while I waited in 90 degree weather. Then came home and we are planting new grass on our front lawn so I had a rake for another hour or so.
Today I finished the entire dvd and I was soaking wet and so happy I did it all the way with not as much compromising with the ski jumps. I LOVE the mummy kicks...by far one of my favorties. Feels SO good!!!

Well, it is 90 degrees here In Tuscaloosa Alabama and I am going to shower and take these 4 boys somewhere to hit some golf balls and swing some bats.

HAPPY BLESSED SATURDAY!!!

I want to document this as I am on the road of transforming my body.

So I am not weighing myself because I know from previous experience when you use your big muscles until they are accustomed to your new routine they may build some and this is ok with me. I did weigh when I first started though and I will probably weigh again in 3 weeks but for my measurements I am absolutely overwhelmed.

I have lost 1/2 inch in my L arm, 1/4 in in R arm, 2 1/2 inches from my waist (around belly button) and 1 from my hips. L thigh 1/2 inch and R thigh 1/2 inch and 1/2 inch in each calf. My total inch loss in 7 days = 6.25 inches

I have been concerned I am not eating enough calories so Thursday I uped my calories and I know this is helping.

I am so blessed to have all my sons and especially my husband encouraging me.

If any of you are women and you have big girls (boobs) and a spare tire on the gut...YOU can do this to. I wish they had a "big girl" on the videos so I could see what compromising positions she does while battling the extras on her body. I just bind them up and go! My husband told me last night that I was hanging in with the skinny people and yes, I was!!! BRING IT!

I am SO excited and cannot wait to see what my body will be like next weekend!!

Well, today showed my true colors.

I left home at 7:20 this morning and got home at 8pm tonight. Cooked 4 kids a small supper, helped with homework then I went to my happy place to do Insanity! I knew I could do it.

Baseball game was awesome! Workout was awesome!

I can tell a difference in my body already. Feels SOOOO good!!!

Now I am going to make a tuna salad and start preparing 4 lunches for tomorrow and get ready for another day!

It is day 9 and I am whooped. I am tired. My kids are tired. We are struggling with homeowrk and laundry and just every day task. But, I did my workout and BAM, I feel awesome!

So, I will make the kids lunch tonight and mine as well. I will get them up extra early and make pancakes and sausage and I might even eat some oatmeal for myself!

Life will recover itself in a day or so. We just came off of spring break and with the time change it has been kinda dragging around here!

I still do not think I am eating enough. I have a friend who owns a gym in North Carolina and I think I will give here a shout to see.

Good night !!!

Ok. I ate a slice of cheese pizza for supper. Then I went outside and spread grass seed over a 3000sq ft piece in my yard and raked topsoil over it. SO, I do not regret it!

I am SO thankful for Recovery workouts. I still sweat pretty intense.

I measured myself this morning and I am amazed at the inches that are falling off. I will add them up and post them tonight. I did weigh myself as well and not a huge move but 7lbs in 10 days is a taker for me.

Have a great day! Ball practice and a ball game tonight.... I WILL get my workout in!!!

PUSH PUSH PUSH!

OH, by the way, I have not told anyone at work what I am doing. No one has said anything but they are looking.....hmmmm

Food plays a MAJOR role in how you feel, perform and lose weight. The End!

I ate white rice for supper and I was not a good Shawn T student tonight. I did the workout and I almost finished. Sweat was pooling up in my floor.

Fresh fruit and a salad tomorrow!!!

Monday workout is over.

I have to admit, this is really challenging for me and in my life right now.

My laundry has piled up. My husband started cooking more. He is cleaning more. All for me to get healthy and lose some weight. My kids are so encouraging. They sat on the futon tonight and cheered me on while I was sweating and calling to Jesus! I love those boys so much!

Tomorrow will be another test for me as I have 2 baseball games and I will not make it home until after 9. AND it is the cardio and abs.... wowzers!! Can I do it?? Let's just wait and see. Just incase I cannot get it all in I am walking for 30 minutes at lunch tomorrow and doing the ab part only. I got this!

I am ordering my Shakeology this weekend!!!! Excited!

Also, my clothes fit SOOO much better. I love this!!!

It is hard to believe I have lost 2 feet off my body! Keep on melting fat!

Being honest..... Got off work at 5 and went and picked up kids came home cooked and had 2 baseball games. Got home at 9 and did abs only. I promised myself I would follow this program and give it my best and I did it. I am very proud of myself! I have not ate enough food this evening so I drank a lean shake or protein shake. Showered and now going to bed to start over tomorrow!

Happy Insanity everyone! emoticon

It is offical.... I am exhausted. Tonight was my recovery night and it felt so good. I did not make it through the whole dvd. I am ok with this. I am tired. To tired so I am listening to my body. I am ill, very ill. Kids called me cranky so I am turning in early tonight.

I pray tomorrow holds a better day and workout.

Goodnight...
