Insanity, One Week Down

It is total deja-vu to be writing this post, but I guess that comes with the territory when you decide to start a program over again.  My first week of Insanity went great and it feels incredible to be able to say that!  After having a couple weeks of struggling I was starting to doubt whether I could get back on track - but I did and I love it!

There is something about Insanity that is just right for me.  I enjoy the pace of the workout, I love Shaun T and I feel comfortable doing the moves.  Not to say that they're easy (because they're not!) but I feel fully capable of doing most of the moves, and the moves that push me are just beyond my reach at the moment.  I know that I will get them figured out soon!

When doing Insanity I feel like there is always something new to learn and a new way to push my body a bit beyond where it had been the day before.  The exercises are different each day so it is impossible to get bored.  

One of the things I have noticed is that I am getting much more flexible with Insanity than I had been before starting it, and I love that!  A lot of programs start with a stretch and then go into a warm up - Insanity flips this around a bit.  Shaun T has us warm up and then go into the stretch.  I definitely feel like having my muscles warmed up helps me get more out of the stretch.  (Honestly, that warm up is a bit more than a warm up!  I'm always dripping by the end of it!)

So, that being said, what did the first week of Insanity do for me??

3.4 pounds!

I will take it!!

A couple more weeks with results like that and I will be well on my way to knocking my goal out of the park - I love it!

For now, I'm going to go drink some water and get ready for tomorrow's workout - wish me luck!
