That's awesome that you're starting today! Just remember to drink lots of water, do extra stretching and don't worry if you can't keep up with the people on the video emoticon Get ready to dig deep!

Hey Guys

Good job on starting the insanity journey.

I would highly recommend to participate in a challenge group/thread on beachbody. Find a thread that you like, I would recommend one that has a similar start date to you guys. It will act as a place for you to chime in each day and give a little summary about your work out. Your community members will help give you tips, and you can help them in return.

Definitely drink that water. Your body needs it! Drink a cup right when you wake up.

You will probably experience soreness for the entire first 1.5 weeks. This is good! This means that your body is changing, and it is proof that you need to continue. If you feel sore, hop into your work out. Doing the warm up and stretching will help reduce your soreness. Stay active in general. Dont just do insanity then sit in bed all day - get out and get active, whether its housework or playing with your kids or walking at the mall.

Hi Kenya.

My name is lissette. Today will be my first day starting insanity. I got insanity over the weekend and said what better day to start than on Monday. LOL I am a little scared after looking over a couple of cds but I am motivated to get into shape. I wish you well on your journey and hope to stay intouch since we are practically starting at the same time. I am looking to chat with people that are starting around the same time to help me keep motivated and exchange tips. LOL

Congrats to you! You have started on an amazing journey and a fantastic program. My first BB workout ever and I loved it. My reason for being where I am now with Beachbody.

My advice is as follows if you are interested:

1. Don't weigh yourself, the scale is evil and won't do you good when tracking your progress. Instead you track your measurements and see how your clothes fit. Remember, muscle is more dense than fat. Go to my profile and check out my website, I have an article on there called "Muscle Does Not Weigh More Than Fat". It gives a bit more info about why you shouldn't weigh yourself.

2. Drink a lot of water, it will help you a lot. This is an intense workout so you want to remain hydrated.

3. If possible, use the P90X Results and Recovery and Shakeology or something similar. It isn't in everyone’s budget but they are both great. Talk to me or your coach about a free sample of Shakeology if you haven't tried it. I use it daily and love it. It is one of those things you just can’t get anywhere else and is worth every penny.

4. You must follow the nutrition plan as close as possible. It is a huge part of the program and will be very important to your weight loss, muscle gain, getting lean or whatever your goals are.

5. Try workout with someone or have a team of folks you can talk to on a regular basis. I have found that if you can buddy up with someone or a team of people you will have much better results. When you work with other folks who motivate and support you then you will find yourself pushing harder. I have a closed group on Facebook of folks doing P90X, Insanity, many other programs and it is unbelievable how they motivate each other and push each other. Let me know if you want to join it. It is a lot of fun and you will get more support than you imagined.

6. Don't stop. If you get tired don't hit pause. Stop, take a breath, get a drink and then hop right back in it. You will catch up.

7. Finally, remember always that you can do it. It is in your mind. Keep digging through and you will succeed. We all have.

Congrats again!!
