Insanity Day 1

Happy Monday!  Did you all have a great weekend?  We sure did!  We spent time with family (played Apples to Apples- so fun!) on Saturday night and on Sunday- Garrett and I were at the Vikings game!  Great day to be at a game- In case you didn't hear- huge upset against the 49ers.  It was a blast!

I'm sitting at 138-139 pounds.  I'm 2 pounds lower than my goal for the month of September- so I'm extremely happy!  It's time to start thinking about next months goals!  (Exciting!!)

Today, Garrett and I started the 60-day fitness program INSANITY.  It is a 6 day a week program that requires you to push yourself TO THE MAX.  Here's what the website has to say:

The INSANITY® workout

 might just be the hardest fitness program ever put on DVD. Your personal trainer Shaun T
 will push you past your limits with 10 INSANITY workout discs packed with plyometric drills on top of nonstop intervals of strength, power, resistance, and ab and core training moves. No equipment or weights needed. Just the will to get the hardest body you’ve ever had.

Intense!  Garrett agreed to track his progress online with me!  That way- you guys can see the changes in his body to!  (Talk about moral support- thank you babe!)

We will be posting pictures throughout the 60 day program-- hopefully we'll be able to see a difference!

As you can see- I'm really *soft*- like, really, really soft.  There is no muscle definition ANYWHERE. (And- what happened to my ass?  It's just gone.)
I'm hoping to burn some of the belly fat and begin the definition process.

Garrett is very physically active.  Unfortunately for him- whereas most women crave ice cream and other crap when they are pregnant- that was not our case.  I had no cravings (well, I craved STEAK!  Lots of MEAT!) and Garrett got them all.  I mean, a-half-gallon-of-mint-chocolate-chip-ice cream-at-3am type of cravings.  I fully expect to see his 6 pack back by day 15... Day 30 at the absolute latest.

Men just have it easy, don't they!?

I'll tell you one thing that *isn't* easy-- THIS WORKOUT!  Day 1 consists of a warm-up and fitness test.  HOLY CRAP.  We were both sweating our little behinds off!  Garrett almost threw up.   We will be getting up at 6am Monday-Saturday to do this program together before the kids wake up.

How romantic.

Well-- I hope Monday goes by fast for those of you stuck in an office cubicle all day.  After work- GET OUT!  Go for a walk/run/jog and enjoy the crisp fall air!

Also- the DAIYA giveaway is open until Thursday night.  Head over to the giveaway and enter to win!

  3. I can't believe you're doing Insanity! I did 1 day...and that was it! I know, that's terrible.
    I think since Garrett is doing it with you, that'll make it easier too. And yes, he'll have a 6 pack and muscles in a few days. Ugh, men! It's so unfair. I look forward to seeing your progress!

  4. Great job! I have heard that is a killer. I have P90X but have never committed. I should probably get on that ;)

  5. YOU inspire me! :-) Whatever you do...Don't Give Up!!! Never ever, ever give up. (That's what my BFF Dave Ramsey said last Friday...just passing on the message ;-)


  6. good luck! I'm excited to see where this takes you! I've never done Insanity, but have played around a bit with p90x, but I know quite a few people who have LOVED doing Insanity!!!
