    Day 2: Plyometric circuit. 💪
    Wow those level 1 drills, did what I could and it'll be great to see my fitness improve so I can actually do a full push up 🤣
    Going to continue these posts to keep me on track, but I'm hoping fitness buddies will join me at some stage 🤞

    Day 3: Cardio power and resistance 💪 done!
    Woo those power jumps 😅 and I really couldn't manage many triceps dips, but I know I'll get better at them. I'm excited to get another workout done! Feeling great for a Monday morning 🤔🤣

    I did insanity a few years ago... LOVE shaun t! Pure cardio was always my favourite.

    Hi Vicky, same! Totally loving Shaun T, he is a great motivator! I'm yet to complete the pure cardio day, one to look forward to! Were you happy with your 60 day results?

    Day 4: Cardio Recovery.
    Jeez those plank, squat and lunge holds / pulses 😬 looking forward to being able to hold then a bit longer 🙈😅 Nice quicker routine this morning, feeling great! 💪

    Day 5: Pure Cardio - done 😳😅💪
    Omg I was like 😳😬 when Shaun T said he was nervous for the workout. Oh my legs and shoulders are shredded. What a mental workout 🤣 this is well named, I love it! I agree Vicky my favourite workout so far! Feeling great for putting in 100% but also looking forward to my Friday rest day now 😂

    Day 6: Plyometric circuit 💪 week one done!
    Level one drills are brutal 🤣 I feel like I was able to do a little bit more although still wrecked! Nervous about weigh in tomorrow. I know I'll have muscle weight but hopefully will show some fat loss on the scales 😬 time will tell!

    I've been glancing at your posts, as I did Insanity a couple of years ago. Loved it, felt AMAZING (and run over LOL) after every session, but didn't lose weight with it. So whilst tempting, I decided not to jump on the thread as a 'do-er'. However, I read your thread last night and thought - "oh, I hope she's not disappointed when she finds she's put on some weight". Cos you KNOW it's water weight from the sudden exercise shift don't you? Hang on in there, take ALL the photos, and measure your progress against the first session. You are getting fitter, healthier and happier. The scale only shows part of the picture...

    Thanks for your reply and encouraging words! I did suspect that the scales wouldn't be kind, but yes, definitely reminding myself of your words, getting fitter, healthy and happier! I didn't take measurements or photos to start but I'm going to do that this weekend and not stepping on the scales until the finish day 😂 don't want to be discouraged! Thanks again, tomorrow is another day and it's cardio power and resistance day 😳💪

    Argh as I suspected I put on a pound & a 1/2. I'm staying off the scales until the end of these 9 weeks as I don't want to feel disappointed 😞 I'm getting fitter, eating better with a deficit, so it will work with consistency, I need to trust the process

    I didn't lose any weight when I did insanity... lost a few inches but put 2lbs on!

    Day 8: Cardio Power and Resistance. Done 💪
    I definitely felt like I gave it my all, so much so I almost 🤢 on globe jumps 🙈 My tricep dips are still, frankly non exsistant but I did more and better on the other moves and triceps will come 🤞
    I'm excited to start my second insanity week 😁 I love those hurdle jumps 'Come on y' all let's go!!'
    Let's do this! Great way to start the weekend 👍

    Hi Vicky,
    Yeah I think I'm going to be the same but like 'skinnyrev' said Im getting fitter, healthier and happier, which is what it's all about - the weight loss will come I'm sure! What did you do to lose weight after insanity? Presuming you wanted to lose weight that is!

    I used MFP to lose weight, it's just a numbers game. Eat less than you burn and you'll lose weight.

    The high intensity of insanity creates water retention which messes with the scales, that's all 😊

    Thanks Vicky, I'm definitely playing the numbers game and I'll continue with a deficit after insanity, but maybe drop the exercise to a run every other day - I'll certainly be fit enough for that after this program I'm sure 🤣

    I made the big mistake not taking measurements before insanity and I felt like you too and alittle discouraged at the beginning. Don’t let that stop you. Keep pushing play and dig deeper! Lol. Seriously you will get the results you desire. Don’t give up.

    I started running after I finished insanity too 😀
