Insanity Day 1: Fit Test

Today I started the beach body program INSANITY by Shaun T. I have been meaning to start this ever since I bought the DVDs back in November 2012. I did p90x a while before that and really enjoyed it so when I saw the commercial for insanity I was like "am I insane? sure! let's do this!"

Then I got pregnant

Then I was a postpartum nursing mother

Now I'm still nursing but after some research and because I have completed the half marathon I was training for (the San Francisco 1/2 on April 6th) I figure now is a good time. 

If I don't start now I probably never will :-)

Never herd of it? (do you not watch T.V?)
go ahead & watch the video...

Anyway so I started the program today. Day 1 is the fit test which is made up of 8 different exercises. You do one exercise at a time and try to do as many reps as possible in 1 minute. This fit test is repeated every 14 days throughout the 60 day program.

I barely finished the fit test. I did have to stop a few times. Holy crap this is going to be (um) INSANE! Even the fit test is crazy!!!!!!!!!!

Here are my results so far:

I used post-it notes because I plan on using the workout calendar again


Here are my pictures which I took today!!!!

Insanity Day 1: April 20th 2014

Now let me make something perfectly clear. I am INCREDIBLY happy with the weight I am now. I am NOT doing this in an effort to loose weight. I am anticipating that I will in fact, gain weight when I build muscle and that's totally fine with me. I want to get ripped & have some muscles!

But mostly I want to be able to do more than 5 push ups before I have to do girly ones. 

I don't know how strict I am going to be with the diet because I need to keep my calorie count high to support my breastfeeding. However I'm not too concerned since Kyle and I eat pretty healthy to begin with. 

If I keep with the program as is I'll be well into month two while we prepare to move. It will be

Stay tuned and I'll post on my progress!
