Taking Care of Me

Subscribe to this feed Subscribe

I'm a week into my Insanity program and I feel so motivated and such a sense of accomplishment! It's definitely the hardest workout I've ever done and I push and challenge myself to do it, even when I think I can't. Every part of my body aches, but today is my rest day and it's not as bad. I feel like I'm getting stronger and have more endurance. I think I've lost 2 pounds this week...only about 8 more pounds until I'm in "onederland", which I haven't been in for probably 2 years. I can't wait to see how I look and feel at the end of the 63 days!

Honestly, when my husband suggested trying it, I really didn't think I could do it and was seriously scared out of my mind the first day. I kept thinking "what if I can't do it?" And you know what? I was surprised at what I could push myself to do, but the reality of it is, the people on that video are a lot more in shape than I am, so even if I can't do everything they can, I've learned to modify and keep going! I won't give up this time! ~Sara :o)

Woohoo! Onederland approaches! You'll be there before you know it! The first time I stepped on the scale and it said 199.8... I got SO excited that I started dancing lol -- it was a huge milestone for me. :) And it sounds like Insanity will get you there!

Insanity scares me, just because of the name and the things I've heard about it. I think i'm going to go buy Jillian Michaels 30 day shred and give that a try... "shred" sounds less scary than "INSANITY!" hahaha
