INSANE MOM Starting Insanity 11/7-11/26 Start Date. Who's in?!?!

Hi everyone,

I am starting my third round of Insanity tomorrow!!! November 7th!!! Anyone want to join in for support? You can start anytime betweeen November 7th and November 26th. This thread is for all but especially for busy moms who need that extra push (we have so much on our plate-and I'm not just talking about food!). I completed one round of Insanity in the summer of 2011 and attempted a second round in the Fall but life got in the way (husband's bad car accident). I didn't fall off the fitness wagon completely however. Subsequent to all that, I got my aerobics certification, got licensed to teach Zumba and currently I am studuying for my NASM personal training certification. I would love to use this message board and the support I get from friends to push us through Insanity!

A little bit about me-I'm Tasiana from New York. I have three children with my youngest being 23 months old. I gained a 70 whopping pounds with my second child. I lost all the weight working out to Hip Hop Abs and lifting weights. Then I gained 70 pounds again with my third child. I worked out to Hip Hop Abs, P90X here and there, did some cardio and resistance exercises but plateaued after I lost 50 pounds. I was at a stand still for about four months and was feeling very unmotivated to continue working out as much because at that point I was working out hard and no weight was being lost. A friend of mine kept mentioning Shakeology to me, but I was reluctant. Finally, after a couple of weeks passed, she made me a shake and I was instantly hooked!! I kept harassing her for more while I waited for my shipment (I still owe her a few servings!!) Anyway, I took off 10 pounds in 3 weeks! That's what I needed to motivate me to continue with my workout program. Where am I at now? I'm at my prepregnancy weight, however, I would like to tone up and get ROCK HARD abs!!I DON'T want to wait until the new year after eveyone has gained 20 or so pounds from the holidays. Let's MAINTAIN at least!! But not with this program. We will definitely achieve our fitness goals. Who is ready to dig deeper with me? I want 6 pack abs to flaunt at the beach. NOT next summer. I want them NOW! Who's in?

Welcome bhamberger!!!
Great to have you on board. Workout buddies are sooooo helpful and help to stay accountable. And good for you for making your workout your "me time!!" YOu are going to LOVE Insanity! Trust me. You'll be hooked!

aaaahhhhh! How I have missed this workout. I just did the fit test today. But what a workout!!!
Here are my Day 1 Fit test results. Some numbers are good, some bad. But better than my very first fit test two summers ago.

Switch kicks 67
Power squats 30
Power knees 51
Power jumps 11 I HATE THESE!!!!!
Globe jumps 6
Suicide jumps 10
Push up jacks 20 I could not do ONE during my very first fit test!
Low plank oblique 40

Just as important as fitness is NUTRITION. Abs are made in the kitchen they say!!!
So I am having my brocolli and mushroom omelette as I type. And can't forget my Shakeology. I made it with just water since I'm having eggs. When I have a rushed morning, I make it with a banana and coconut milk. YUMMMM!!!
Have a great day!

Tasiana Congrats on getting your license and on your up and coming certifications! That is awesome! Glad to see you start another workout group as you are a great coach and anyone looking for support should stick around!

Nice jog on the fit test! The ones that always get me are the globe jumps..

Keep up the great work!

Hello Tasiana,

I did that fitness test yesterday and became so motivated I did it again today. I think I am ready for this journey. I will admit that I am afraid, but you promised to encourage me so lets dig deep!

Hi! I'll jump in!
I'm a 44 year old mom of three, who works full time as a nurse practitioner- long hours, busy schedule!! I did my fit test today, and it was HARD!! The suicide jumps were pathetic- I did 7!! But I am determined to lose this 30 pounds that I have been carrying for about 9 years (since the birth of my third son).

I definitely need "accountability" help!

Looking forward to getting fit with you all!

Karen

Day 2 completed. I had to do max plyo because I can't seem to find plyo circuit. I'll have it by the next time I need it. But I did a Round 2 workout this morning! And I was abe to keep up! Well...somewhat. I took some breaks when I needed to. lol


For breakfast this morning, I'm having banana pancakes. Two eggs and a mashed banana with a little bit of maple syrup. Lower carb version! And its delicious!

Chocolate Shakeology will be my meal 2 today

How's everyone doing?

Today was my day 2. It's hard but I love it at the same time. I don't follow my Insanity meal plan because I'm not home too often. I do watch what I eat and making sure I get the right fuel emoticon

Day 4 done for me! I wanted Sundays to be my rest day but since I wasn't able to get a workout in yesterday, I had to w/o today.

Cardio Recovery is AMAZING!!! I remember hating this one my first time around. I love those stretches now! Maybe it's because I can hold the squats, lunges, and stretches now. lol

How's everyone doing with your workout????

Pure Cardio was INSANE!!! I hate mountain climbers! but not as much as I used to. I'm surprised that I was able to do what I did. I took breaks when I needed to. But they should bleep out when Sean T says to take a break, because everytime he says it... I DO!!!! lol
How is everyone doing? Are you pushing play?!?!

Great job Brittney! My kids cheer me on too. They also try to do some of the moves. We are setting a GREAT example for them to be fit and healthy.

Day 6 done for me! I had to do Max plyo again. I'm waiting for my Plyo cardio circuit emoticon
I am able to do 8 power jupms in a row!!! I was NEVER able to do that. lol

Keep pushing play and digging deep. Week one down, 7 more to go!!!

Day 8 completed! Back to my 5am workouts. I was feeling a little under the weather the last couple of days. Woke up weak on Tuesday and with a sore throat yesterday so I waited until later in the day to workout. Wasn't too happy with my output yesterday but hey...I wasn't feeling well. And today I was having problems with my DVD player so I had a couple of 3-5 minute breaks during Pure Cardio. I didn't complain. lol

How's everyone doing?

Hope you're feeling better!
Yesterday was pure-cardio. Even when I did sports in high school I didn't have much cardio but I'm pushing through! I had to change my rest days from monday to thursdays. Too much going on thurdays that I'd be doing my work out at 330am or 11pm. Neither sound great!

Great job Brittany. I don't know if I hate pure cardio or if I love it!

Thanks. I'm feeling alot better although I took alot if breaks today. Not liking that. I think I need more sleep. Who doesn't right? You do what you have to do with regards to when u need to take a rest day. I take Sundays although I don't think I need to. I have busier days so that may change. I am soooo looking forward to cardio recovery tomorrow! It's funny how I used to hate cardio recovery. I appreciate now the body's need for recovery!

Keep up the great work!! Sorry for typos. Posting from my phone. Have a super fabulous weekend and keep digging deep!!!
