I did it!!! I finished INSANITY last week and I couldn’t be any prouder of myself! That last month is tough. Like really tough, but I did every single workout! I don’t think I knew what cardio was until I did this program. It was definitely a love/hate relationship with the creator Shaun Thompson. I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat though!
Let’s move on to the stats, shall we? You can find my 30 day results here. The following will be my stats for the entire 63 days.
|Day 1||Day 63||Loss/Gain|
|Lt. Thigh||16 1/2in.||17in.||+1/2in.|
My numbers didn’t really move. In the past I would’ve freaked out about my weight gain. I’ve learned that my weight doesn’t make a difference. It’s the body fat that means more. I lost 4% and I couldn’t be happier about that! My clothes are pretty much fitting the same because my inches haven’t changed. What I can see though is that my body is getting harder. I’m not as mushy in my legs, arms, and stomach. So even in my pictures you might not see much of a difference. But I can tell by the way that I feel. Which makes me happy that all that hard work was indeed worth it!

There was a fit test that I had to do every two weeks. The fit test is 8 different moves. You have to do as many reps as you can in one minute for each move. I felt like I was going to pass out when I did the fit test for the first time on Day 1. It was so hard and I thought there was no way that I would be able to get anymore reps than I did that day. It was my personal goal to be able to do more reps than the girl in the fit test video by the end of the program. Sure enough by the last day I smoked her totals on 7 out of the 8 moves!
|Day 1||Day 63||Rep Gains|
|8.Low Plank Oblique||40||80||+40|
I’m blown away by how much strength I’ve gained. Every time I did the fit test I was able to pass my previous rep total. It is just such a good feeling to reach my goals every time and even exceed my expectations.
Overall I’m really happy with my results and enjoyed every minute of torture that Shaun T put me through. Like I said, I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat!
For now though, I’ve moved on to yet ANOTHER Beachbody program called TurboFire. It’s a brand spankin’ new program by Chalene Johnson that was just released a couple weeks ago. My official start date will be on Friday!
