  • I haven't done that particular challenge, but have done effectively the same thing. I crashed 30 lbs in 2 months last year, but that was for a challenge with some decent bucks at stake. That was Insanity every night, very limited calorie intake, running from time to time, and was miserable most of it. It also put me below…
  • NY state (south of Syracuse). I used to say upstate, but then people thought I meant like Watertown. If I don't discern that it's NOT the city, everyone else assumes it is. So.. yeah.
  • A friend at work has me talked into trying one in July of this year in PA. Thank goodness I have time to get in more better shape!

  • Great job! I had to take a 2 month break after spraining my knee, but I just picked back up into it, and have about 2 more weeks to go for my completion. Even with the break, I at least want to be able to say I did it!
  • I went through a few. Had an ACL injury a few years back, and being out of insurance at the time, I ended up going through rehabbing instead of surgery, so my recovery was longer than normally would be. However, Once I got to where I could put pressure on it, things started progressing slowly, and I got back to full…
  • No easy answer (and WaKay stole mine anyway..) Keep up the diet, and keep the activity up. There's no way to only go for the one. Obviously some moves will strengthen it more than others. But until the diet and burn brings down the fat that's covering up your abs, you won't see them. Just keep with it, it'll come along.…
  • It really isn't going to matter in the long run, the main thing is get back into it. Do you normally have a set day you take off? what I would do, is that if say, Sunday is your normal day off, then do the remaining "3 days" of a week leading up to Sunday so you can take Sun off, and start back with a normal full week come…

  • As far as running a mile, it is going to vary greatly between people. Someone relatively fit, even if they haven't run before, is going to be able to run a mile pretty quickly, compared to someone not as fit. The only way to know, is to run for a bit, and see how far you make it, and in what time. It also is going to…
  • Insanity coupled with a good diet, will help burn calories a little more through it's cardio, and help build muscle that is already underneath. I can say it definitely helps me feel better, and feel more "in-shape" since i haven't been nearly this active in a long time. There's no reason to hold off, if you want to do it.…
  • I also have to echo, that I feel in better shape after 41 days (til I sprained my knee, dammit ><), even though I haven't lost any more inches. But I've also been told that based on where my weight is when I started, and is now, I really don't have a lot to really lose in the grand scheme. For me, it was more to get more…
  • I do think it would go without saying that it should really only apply if they did the bagging very nicely according to the common sense rules, and then also carry / deliver all the bags to the car and load them for someone. Older people, or inclement weather I can see someone wanting them to do so. I take care of it…
  • My how times have changed over the last decade or so... one of my first jobs was at a grocery store, and I remember having to watch a video upon hiring that went over the basics of bagging (heavy items on bottom, household things go separate, likewise with meats / poultry, etc). And I also remember that as with a lot of…

  • Had a couple people bug me to restart my WoW up, maybe next week, who knows... Schedule sucks these days...
  • Short version, I did something similar after my dental surgery. It wasn't because I WANTED to, it was because there were only so many choices. Eggs are very quick and simple, and you can make them a variety of ways. However, you're also denying your body a variety of other nutrients I'm sure. And I wasn't doing JUST eggs.…

  • 2 weeks in myself, and I found that I have to wear my sneakers on my hardwood at home, and I keep a couple towels with me; one to wipe the sweat off my head and any drops off the floor, and one to keep my sneakers clean so they don't slide. The first workout day, I did it barefoot, and it was brutal on my feet, blisters…
  • Yes, yes, yes, yes and yes. No to the murder (cause that's mean)
  • Just hit Day 10 today for me. Can't wait to see how the 2nd month goes when I get there! I might even toss some Asylum after that just for kicks...dunno yet.
  • Awesome job! I'm through Day 10 now, and hoping to start seeing some changes in the next few weeks. It's definitely a process! Incredible results! Look great!
  • There are some who still do. Maybe not that way to everyone, and they may reserve it for special moments, but they do exist outside hallmark cards and History Channel movies :)
  • Welcome, and great start already! Gonna feel better each and every day your body is rewarding you for your choices!
  • I'd die for mine. However, there does come a point, where no amount of money is going to do anything but prolong their suffering. I've had to put two dogs down over my lifetime, my first ever was an Akita, Gracie. And the last, my Pit. Had him since he was a year old, rescued from a shelter, he was the best dog I've ever…
  • I do myself. I can drink water fine, but sometimes I just like a little flavor. I tend to go with Crystal Lite Wile Strawberry Energy ones, just like the taste. But I also drink flavored waters like Flavorsplash, and Propel from time to time. Definitely better than soda!
  • Just a quick chime in, cause I've been on both ends of this one myself... Has he been hurt or burned in the past by someone, that he's mentioned? It doesn't make it right, but it might be a little more insight as to why he might get nervous about other guys. It also is an insecurity. I was the same way. I found a great…
  • I ended up doing a google search myself, for insanity workout calories burned, and somewhere in there, I found a few sites where people had listed their progress, their calories burned based on heart rate. I went through a bunch until I found a peson with the same age, weight, and approx heart rate as mine was. However,…
  • 1..as an ice breaker
  • Count me in too. Snow or no, I'm on it. !
