NO MORE EXCUSES!!!
exercise sweat abs inspiration no more excuses exercise motivation get real with shaun t 0 days of insanity
2/13/13 3:00 PM
Hello everyone!! I'm new to Team BeachBody and I've been browsing the forum a little and just want to say you are all such an inspiration! emoticon I'm looking forward to getting to know you!

My story begins now...

I am 25yrs old and from London (woop!) and although I'm not actually very heavy, I don't do any exercise whatsoever and I'm generally unfit. I'm 25% bodyfat and I've never felt confident. I was always breathing in on the beach in my bikini and running from the camera. I hated seeing photos of myself (especially if they got posted to Facebook... de-tag de-tag DE-TAG!!) and always just wished I was slim and toned the way I wanted. Then I'd eat a bag of crisps. And an ice-cream. And some pizza. And a chicken burger. I have been sabotaging myself my whole life. Enough is enough is enough is ENOUGH!! I am finally going to get the body I have always wanted but never worked for. I am putting down the cakes and pressing PLAY. I took the plunge and ordered Insanity last night. Before I ordered it I was uhmming and ahhhing, 'It's very expensive', 'Will I actually do it?', 'Is it worth it?', 'I have work', 'I hate exercise' etc etc. And then... NO MORE EXCUSES!!! NO.MORE.EXCUSES!! If I don't start making changes now I NEVER will. It's time to get FIT and get those abs!! There will be no 'sucking it in' on the beach this summer, I want to be full of confidence by the time I go away with my amazing boyfriend! So I clicked 'purchase', selected speedy delivery and I can't wait to get started (hopefully be here by Saturday).

I'm trying to make myself as motivated as possible so please add me as a buddy and we can help each other along! emoticon

I read something awesome the other day and I can't get it out of my head...

SWEAT IS JUST YOUR FAT CRYING

How true is that!!!!! I know this is going to be hard. I know I'm going to want to give up and eat a pizza instead. But not this time. This time I AM GOING TO DO THIS!! Everyone has to start somewhere and for me this begins as soon as that box gets pushed through my front door.

I can't wait to get started! I can't wait to get INSANE!!

Wish me luck!!

Let's get sexy people!! emoticon

Hey Insanity Cat!

Great name by the way!! emoticon

Congrats on taking the first steps to a healthier, fitter YOU!! You can totally do this!

A few things--I totally get where you are coming from with regards to the eating. I am admitted food-o-holic, so I understand the compelling urge to hit the treats when stress strikes. But know, you can totally get a handle on it too.

If you haven't worked out before, my best advice would be to ease into this to give your body a chance to adjust to this regime, and prevent you from getting hurt. These workouts are tough--so do not beat yourself up if the fit test kicks your butt or you have to take a bunch of breaks or modify the moves. We've all been there. The key is to do your best and keep going--as regardless--your body will benefit from the workout, AND you will get stronger each time you do it. So hang in there.

I have a thread on the go right now and have posted a bunch of information regarding shoes/nutrition etc that you might find helpful. Also, I'd love to have you join our group! We really have a lot of nice people logging in, and it's just nice to connect with others who are in the same boat. Click here to check us out!! We'd love to have you!! emoticon

So, best of luck, and feel free to let me know if you have any other questions!

I did my first fit test today and it was tough!! The last three exercises I could barely even manage to do ONE as I have zero arm strength so that was killer! I'm not gona lie - I did have to flop down on a towel afterwards (so sweaty!!) and my legs were quivering a bit in the cool down stretches! Can't wait to get an actual work out under my belt even though I know it's going to be insane, obviously!
Diet plan begins in earnest tomorrow too - abs are made in the kitchen! ;)
Is anyone else starting this week too? Add me as a buddy and we can support each other! emoticon
I'm excited to get going!!

Good job!! It's tough but sounds like you did a great job! You are so right about the nutrition! Once you get both your workout program and your nutrition in line you will be set up for success! Good job!

I just started Insanity this weekend as well! So tough, and managed to get through the fit test but I agree the arm exercises were tough, I think I was able to do 2. But I am really looking forward to the rest of the program, I thought I was in decent shape but I'm finding that I have a lot more work to do. emoticon

When I started Insanity I thought the same thing!!! I thought that shouldn't be too hard...ha! I realized quickly I was fooling myself but the results were awesome!!

That's excellent Zevra7560!! Way to go!! I'm doing my first proper work out tomorrow (Tuesday) and I'm so excited! Although I have to say that my legs have been killing me today after just the fit test so that's gona be interesting! And yes I did have a recovery shake so I dread to think what they would feel like if I hadn't! At some points today I had to physically lift my legs with my hands just to cross them cos they were aching so bad! But kind of in a good way if that makes sense emoticon

Let's keep it up!! x

I'm new too! Wanting the friendship and motivation. My fit test kicked my ass lol emoticon
Couldn't breathe, nauseous, and shaking by the end, but I had a protein shake and watched what I have to face for the next day, and while I am slightly scared, I am also very excited. Good luck to all.

It's time to do my first work out and I'm so tired from work and all the trains were cancelled so it was a nightmare to get home. Ordinarily this is the point where I'd say 'screw it'. But not today. I will get up and do this. It's going to be so tough but I have to give it my best!!!!
