INSANITY - Month Two Begins!!

This week I finished my 6th week of INSANITY. That's the first month, one week of recovery and the first week of the second month completed. 

I was extremely nervous to start the second month. I've heard things get a bit "insane". I wasn't sure I would be able to keep up. I had a few days in the first month that I wanted to give up, quit and even shed a few tears. 

I have to say, it's true. Month two is a major kick in the ass. The workouts are longer, there are fewer breaks and a lot more combinations. So instead of just one set of ski abs, it's 4 ski abs, 4 push-up jacks, 4 in and outs and then 4 wide leg runs - then repeat it 3 more times and then move onto the next set of exercises immediately afterwards and then so the entire set three times through!

It's not rare for me to burn 600-900 calories during these max interval workouts. Whew! I was super sore when I woke up Tuesday. I never knew I had oblique muscles, let alone that they could hurt! But man, did they hurt SO GOOD!!

I however shocked myself each day when I completed the workout and felt amazing! I didn't want to quit, I didn't want to give up. I had a few winded moments, but overall I felt so strong and I'm control!

Even with this success, I thought to myself that there was no way I would be able to notice a change in my appearance. But, I took my weekly pictures and again was shocked to see even more improvement. See for yourself!

I actually got misty eyes when I saw these. I can't actually explain why though. I'm so shocked, surprised and I guess proud of what I've accomplished - and in only 6 WEEKS!!! 

I've been through so much change, this last two years. I've become a mom, a wife, a home-owner (twice), a stay-at-home mom, moved states, I could go on and on. It's been quite exhausting and draining. I've had a lot of ups and downs. INSANITY and my Beachbody team have helped me feel like me again. Slowly but surely... I'm finding my identity. It's such an amazing feeling. I want everyone to be able to feel this good and BETTER! This is the main reason I decided to become a coach. I'm here to help you feel good about yourself. Be healthy and happy!

Now that I veered so far off.... I've got three weeks left. Can you imagine my results? Think I'll look any different than now? Even think its possible? We'll see!!

If you are ready to start your journey or have questions for me about mine, let me know!! :)
