Fitness, I Said So

INSANITY day 56 (end of week 8)

05/09/2011 - 15 comments

Today is the start of my 9th and final week doing the INSANITY workout program.

I can’t believe I’m almost done!

I have to be honest as much as I enjoy doing it and feeling great, I am going to be glad for the break.  It really is an intense workout that challenges you physically AND mentally.

I won’t stop working out, in fact I have a couple of things on the horizon.  I really like the idea of a strict schedule with a deadline and a goal followed by a break, then changing it up and doing the same thing with a different workout regime.

Before I started Insanity, I said “if this doesn’t work, nothing will” and because I have seen success with it, I have realized that I can achieve my goals.

Below is my week 8 Insanity results progress photo.  Like the last few weeks, there isn’t a glaring change.  It’s minor but I know that since I am working so hard that the changes inside just aren’t showing fully on the outside yet.  I don’t have tons of weight to lose, I have toning and a little bit of weight to lose and so I realize that it’s going to be harder for me to see results with anything I do than someone who has a lot of weight to lose.

To see all of my weekly progress photos, check out my INSANITY RESULTS page.

I have to do my measurements tomorrow.  I forgot and I always do them first thing after I get up.

Note: I was sent the INSANITY workout program to try and share my feedback on my blog.  The sweat, and opinions produced during my use of the program are my own.

      Ooooh I forgot all about that! Remind me what we talked about. I’m old. And blonde. Combined that with mommy brain and I’m pretty much drooling most of the time.

    Wow Kim! You look awesome! While the changes may look small form week-to-week, comparing week 1 to this one, there’s quite a big difference!!! You should the first and last photos in your measurements post!

    For myself, I’m reduced to exercising in the late afternoons and evenings. So I’m breaking up the workout into 3 small workouts – 15 to 20 minute walk, 5 to 8 minute of arm exercises and 15 minutes of beginner Pilates. I just started this today. Day 1 done and I like doing it this way, so far!

    Good luck at whatever your next step is. :)

          ME TOO!!! That’s why I pointed it out! I totally recognized it! The only reason I don’t have one right now is because last summer sucked and I sit in a freakin’ office all week! HAHAHA!!!

          We should be proud of our Farmer Tans! Rock them lines! HAHAHAHA!!!

      Thanks Laura! I’m looking forward to taking a break from the intensity of this, I think so long as you are doing SOMETHING to keep active it’s a great thing!

      Oh and next week after I’m done I am going to put my before and after pictures next to each other for comparison. I thought it would be more dramatic to wait til the end!
