Hey guys, Insanity newbie here! So I currently work as a full-time RN which means my schedule is BEYOND hectic. I work two 12-hr shifts and two 8-hr shifts... and then I rotate day and night. Because of this, it's incredibley difficult and draining to commit to a program 6 days a week. Does anyone else have this problem? Can you still get positive results even though you can't follow a strict schedule? Any help would be great.. god knows I need it emoticon

Do what you can and don't sweat it. In your situation, nutrition is going to be even more important since you can't follow the schedule to a tee. That said, any effort put into the program is better than none, so just work hard when you can and keep your diet especially clean and you'll still get results. Might not come quite as quickly as if you could stick to the schedule, but you'll still get there.

Hope that helps.

Flexibility obviously becomes key here. With that said, you must already juggle many aspects of your life with your schedule as such. It is a necessity of your lifestyle. Make the time for fitness too. Set it as one of your priorities and you will get amazing results. Good luck!!

Then do it 4 or 5 days per week, whatever works best for you. It's supposed to be a positive addition to your life, not a punishment, so fit it in with your real world demands in a way that balances out.
