Hello all!

I purchased Insanity a few months ago, but I let certain aspects of my life get the best of me and it collected some dust. Well I dusted it off yesterday, went through the fit test, and I was pretty successful. So this morning I went into day 1, and my balloon of happiness was deflated. Wow! Insane!! But, even though I had to stop a few times and catch my breath, I was able to make it through. I know that I will definitely need some encouragement here and there, but I plan to stick to it and see this through. So just wanted to get a post out there!

Hi Shelby. welcome back! I am entering my fourth week. It gets better, not necessarily easier, just better emoticon Keep following the schedule, take breaks as necessary ( I started setting "less unscheduled break" times) and you'll accomplish this! Whatever you do, try not to be discouraged. We have all started the same way and gradually gotten better and better day by day. You got this. I'll be happy to help you along with encouragement and motivation, if you'd like.

Way to go, INSANITY is a whole lot of fun but it is a challenge each and every day. I did it after doing 2 rounds of P90X and it still made me work. I can say a few things that might help. Don't worry about stopping, the people on the DVD are all in killer shape and like 7% body fat and they are stopping. You made it though, you have a base and now you can just work on improving a little each time. No matter what remember you are only trying to impress yourself and you decided to get healthy for a reason. Keep that reason in mind when things get hard and you will get there. Those were my two biggest rules when I decided that I was going to get fit, now I am 121 lbs lighter and lost 16 inches off my waist. You can check out my story by going to the $5000 voting link and scrolling to the bottom. I am in the voting for the quarterly winners Justin B. Take a minute to check it out and vote for the man and woman you think have the best story. Everyone worked hard and are deserving of the honor. I wish you success with INSANITY please feel free to buddy and message me anytime if you need anything.

Great comeback ! Those days are in the past now and you gotta focus on what you are doing today.

Stick to the program, stick to the nutrition every day and you will proud you did in 60 days as the results will be there to reward you for your commitment.

I have added you as a buddy so we can message each other, if you need someone to talk to and to keep you accountable.

Don't FRET! This is SO normal. The fit is hard. Just press play on Day 2 and go from there! In each workout do your best and take breaks when needed. You will see improvements. Just keep pressing play!! You CAN do this!!

What is your goal with Insanity?

Cheers,
Christina

Well, one thing that excites me is the level of support on the boards. I was very athletic in my youth, and I let too many things in my life take me away from taking care of myself. So I do get discouraged from time to time. Especially when I look in the mirror. And the support I have received has absolutely helped me stay focused, no matter how many breaks I need to take, or how many days I have to find the motivation to press play. I believe I am heading in the right direction. I have never considered myself a weak man, but I can say the support means a lot to me, so thank you!
