  • This is the truth if I've ever heard it. Even at my tender age of 25, I swear this time around the weight is more reluctant to come off.
  • Gyms Open!......but not motivated learning to like myself unconditionally So my gyms been open for about two weeks and I've went exactly 3 times including yesterday. Not good. Anyway just trying to get back into the mindset of going, and staying on track with my diet. It's been much easier to drink beer and wrench on my…
  • Woah girl, the struggle is real hahaha. I've got about another 5lbs before I switch over to maintenance but I'm running on fumes it feels like. Been over calories all week, I keep putting off going to the gym till its really late and then I just dont go.
  • I'm I just finished Friday night fight so day 5. Typically with other programs like these it takes me personally 2 week to see anything. That is both weight wise, and stamina.
  • I want to start off by saying I'm not an expert, and everybody's body is different. To answer your actual question. No, you don have to eat them. There are days when I don't eat all my calories because I'm simply not hungry. Will it hurt? Short answer, no not if the numbers are correct. As far as this post is concerned I…
  • New Routine Working on liking myself Unconditionally Well I've settled into my new routine nicely this week. After finishing insanity, I decided my body needed a week to rest (ankle and knee were starting to bother). Turns out it was just what the doctor ordered. Being my governor(MI) believes we need to be more locked…
  • Well today is the final day of Insanity, and all I can say is it's been real. The results are good, and I just feel good.
  • IM DONE. Working on liking myself Unconditionally I honestly can't believe I'm done. It's been a journey and the result aren't too bad either. Also I've been looking forward to getting this pizza for sometime, it's normally my kryptonite but its my reward tonight. Cardio: Day 63 of 63 (Fit Test 300 cal) Strength: N/A till…
  • Today is my final day of Insanity and I'll tell you was trying but rewarding. It was hands down the hardest thing I have ever done. But I find this page very helpful, and I know you will too.
  • I don't know what your diet looks like but I wouldn't sweat it. I didnt lose that much weight till the end of Recovery Week myself. I lost like 2lbs the first week which I figured was probably water weight. After that I only lost 2lbs for the rest of month 1. However, after Recovery week it's been a complete different…
  • I'm slipping Working on liking myself Unconditionally Easy workout today so that's nice as I think my shoes are getting to broke down and not providing enough cushion. I'm doing these HIIT workouts on a wood floor and my left ankle is taking notice. I'm also starting to slip in my diet, really going to have to make a…
  • The heaviest dumbells I have are 45lbs. Not enough for a complete push/pull type workout. I had started with my buddy before s*** hit the fan this winter, and I know I could easily mimic all movements with bands. I've read you get them up to 100lbs, and or double them up for more. The last time I was at the gym I used…
  • I Finally Have A Plan!!! Working on liking myself Unconditionally Since I dont believe the gyms here in Michigan to be opening up within the next month, I finally have a plan for life after insanity. The wife enjoys at home workouts more than a gym so we are going to get BeachBody on Demand. My plan is to continue with…
  • Final Week!!! Working on liking myself Unconditionally I am proud to say that today marks start of the final week of insanity for me. It's not over yet but it feels great to be this close. Cardio: Day 57 of 63 (Max Plyo 600 cal) Strength: N/A till my gym reopens Assessment: Grilled Chicken and Red Skin Potatoes
  • Uncontent so still grinding Working on liking myself Unconditionally It's been in my experience that you have to normally be leaner than you think to look as lean as most of us probably picture mentally. That sucks. It was true the first time I found that out, still true now. Maybe it only feels like that because coming…
  • Day 52 of 63, Max Cardio & Cardio Abs. Month 2 is crazy but rewarding. However my results are crazy and are making it well worth it. I also came to the conclusion I hate Max Recovery, that's just me though hahaha.
  • Grinding Working on liking myself Unconditionally Still chugging along, and drawing ever closer to the end. Contemplating and tossing around the idea of maybe moving towards a recomp while redoing the month 2, since I gyms not open till at least the end of the month. Cardio: Day 52 of 63 (Max Cardio 500cal.) Strength: N/A…
  • Seeing Results! Working on liking myself Unconditionally Insanity is paying huge dividends, more than I expected at least, both in lbs and inches. I also normally try and do something on my rest days, but I'm just tired and stiff so I think I'll dit this one out for my improving body. My Govenor just extended our stay at…
  • I took me about 2 weeks before I really worked into a good diet. Still doesn't feel worth it sometimes hahahaha

  • Add me I'm doing insanity right now. I'm on my second week of month 2! Now as far as your questions. They seem normal as far as my experiences with my own body on insanity. I've attempted insanity 3 times including this current cycle. The first time I reached the recovery week. The second, I reached the recovery week and…
  • I can tell you from my own experience that I needed to be significantly lighter than I had thought to achieve what I was looking for. I had a goal weight in mind like you when I started, and once I got there I realized it just wasn't enough. I am 6'4, I was 285lbs got down to 225 which was my target, and I would say I was…
  • I'm glad I'm not the only one crazy enough to like pure cardio! Also speaking from only my experience and opinions, I tried to also get more work in other than insanity the last time and I ultimately think it's the reason I stopped at Recovery week. I found I need the rest just as much mentally as physically. I just needed…
  • Monday Blues Working on liking myself Unconditionally Little stiff rolling out of bed this morning. Month 2 is kicking my butt. However I feel good and I am extremely pleased with the results. Might share when I'm down, havent decided yet. One thing that crossed my mind yesterday was even if the gyms open back up tomorrow,…
  • Still Grinding Working on liking myself Unconditionally 60 minutes of HIIT is much different than 60 minutes in the gym lifting and finishing with 15-20min of easy cardio. I don't want to sound lazy, but I'm looking ahead to greener pastures and easier days again lol Cardio: Day 39 ( Max Recovey 400cal.) Strength N/A till…
  • Still Grinding Working on liking myself Unconditionally Today will be the 3rd day of month 2 for me, Day 38, Max Cardio Conditioning. The first two days were rough. The two biggest differences to me are the length obviously, and the strength required. For the length, 60mins is just a long time to go wide open, and I get so…
  • The first week was the hardest for me. The mental commitment of doing the videos while struggling to get around my house in was so sore. I was quite around myself the first time I tried insanity 285lbs. to be exact. It does help I'm 6'4 but I was still overweight. After two years of on again off again I found myself around…
  • Welcome and Good luck!!!! Today I start Month 2. I'm nervous and excited! I'll keep you guys posted
  • Still Grinding Working on liking myself Unconditionally This week was my Recovery Week, and the workout was actually easy for me this time around. I havent kept up on my posting but the week was so easy I didn't really need the accountability to help me press play everyday. I suspect that will be changing as I will be…
  • Day 27 and Month 1 of insanity in the books. The inner pride I have right now is off the charts. Insanity is a tough program and I've tried on more than one occasion to complete it and never have. This time I'm more physically ready for challenge, and it's my time! A full week of slower paced recovery workouts will be nice…
