My Insanity Challenge

 

Hello all!

Just wanted to catch you guys up on how I’ve been doing. As you know, because of my plateau, I decided to try the Insanity 60 day program.  The workouts are super tough and I am always drenched in sweat.  There is a lot of jumping which suuuuuucks for my knees, but I am adjusting. I feel good. After week 1, I had already lost 2 pounds and we are 1/2 way through week 2. My goal is to stick through the entire 8 weeks and give it all I have.

I love this program because it is a physical and mental challenge. So many times, I just want to give up. But Shaun T (the instructor) keeps pushing me. LOL. And I feel amazing after it’s over. The workout is great! The downfall is the repetition. During month 1, you cycle through 3 different workouts. The warm up becomes a little repetitive. But it is a challenge every time. I just have to stay disciplined and remember WHY I committed to this challenge in the first place. I WANT RESULTS.  If you want more information about this program or want to check it out: http://www.beachbody.com/product/fitness_programs/insanity.do 

This program is accompanied by the Elite Nutrition Eating Guideline and Meal Plan. This program uses a tier system to make sure you are getting the nutrition you need to lose weight and have the energy you need for your workout. You eat 5 meals a day with this eating plan and it is great at explaining why you should be eating what they recommend. This has been a major challenge for me. I have to spend more time preparing my meals for the day because I’m eating cleaner and fresher. It involves a lot of planning and prep time. I’ve been late to work a few days, but I am getting the hang of it. Curious??? Here is an example of what a week of eating looks like for me:
