I hate to start a post with the letters OMG---but O.M.G!!!!!!!
Matt and I just did the Insanity Fit Test.
Let me just put this in terms you might understand:
The warm up was like my high-intensity boot camp classes at the gym--the WARM UP!
Then we began the actual "work out". It was (I think) 8 different moves--all for 1 minute each. Peice of cake, right? Uh...if you like eating brick-cake. Hard doesn't even begin to describe it. It's not that the moves are hard or complicated....it's that you're trying to do it as fast as you can--as many as you can get in durng that 60 seconds. I would always start out thinking "this isn't so bad" and then after about 30 seconds in...I'd be shaking and coughing and huffing with each breath! Good Lordy I am not nearly as fit as I thought!
I'm not sure how this information I've just discovered makes me feel about beginning the actual program. I know it's gonna whip me into shape--and that is AWESOME. I also know it's gonna be an ENORMOUS challenge for me to conquer the mental aspect of this.
I love my cardio---but I like it at the gym---surrounded by all my girlfriends.
Doing this at home--dodging dogs, toys and kids---on my living room carpet---ugh---not so fun! Of course, you all know I'm 'onetoughgirl' who is CERTAINLY not going to wimp out---NOR---am I going to let my money go to waste. If I shelled out the $$ to buy this program, you can bet I'm gonna do it and make every cent count.
I guess I just never realized, after 5 1/2 years of consistantly working out, that there are still moves out there that I haven't seen---and workouts that I can't do! I really thought "I can do anything" but after watching the "Dig Deeper" video and doing the fit test, I'm beginning to question my actual fit-level. The good thing is: There is always room for improvement!
I think I'm just rambling...
One thing I learned for SURE---DO NOT EAT for at LEAST 2 or more hours before doing any of these work outs. We ate about 1 1/2 hr. before and we nearly puked. Yuk! I still feel like my dinner is sitting in my throat. Gross!
Also, on the positive side---I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Nutrition Guide in this program. It is a million times easier to me than the P90X Nutrition Guide (but of course that is just my opinion). I am also thinking back to when I first started P90X and I didn't know how to cook/eat ANY of those foods. Now I eat very healthy anyway...so maybe that's why this new eating plan seems so easy. Either way, I am MORE THAN HAPPY to share the recipes with you all!
For any of you who are considering ordering Insanity...of course, I have a lot more to learn...but from what I've seen so far---I DEFINITELY recommend it. (maybe even over P90X!!!???) I can't believe I'm saying that because I NEVER thought I could love ANYTHING more than P90X....but....I also NEVER thought I could love my 2nd child as much as I loved my 1st--and then he came along and of course, I do! Well, it's kind of the same situation. P90X is my 1st baby---but Insanity is my 2nd baby and I am in LOVE already!
oh boy..have I gone off the deep end or what? ha ha ha
Give me a little bit of a break...I got my monthly visitor today, I have a huge zit on my chin, I'm moody and to top it all off, I peed my pants during the jump-knee-tucks in the fit test. Nice, huh?
I'm sure you all really wanted to know that about me. I am way too honest. Why am I still talking?
Okay...I really need a shower...really. Later y'all!
