Before and Now

Thursday, May 19th, 2011
So I thought we’d take a look back at some before photos and some now photos.  Now don’t be shocked and if you have sensitive eyes, look away as the before photos may scare you.  Yes, I did this to myself.  I ate fast food, didn’t work out and was just plain lazy.  To give myself a bit of a break, I was also on some meds that helped me gain weight but still, I ate horribly.

Something clicked one day and I decided “enough was enough”.  The plan was simple, exercise and eat well. So, there you have it, before photo and a now photo.  Crazy, huh?

 

Welcome

How exciting!!! This is our very first post and we can’t wait to see what changes our bodies have gone through since we started the Insanity program approximately 2 months ago. The daily dedications to working out and not only hoping to look better, but feel better are paying off.

Our last official day of Insanity is Sunday the 22nd of May (Fit Test results) and then it is on to Insanity AND P90X (hybrid) for a more invigorating variation of working out. Looking forward to the challenge of pushing beyond what limits we think our bodies can endure and loving every minute of it…..kind of, we are not that insane.

Again, I must stress how great I feel now, of course, compared to when I was 220 lbs. I would never want to go back to having little to no energy, dreading having to try on clothes (in the Plus size section) and just the plain old feeling of having no confidence about myself.

I have been lucky to find someone who has enough energy for a small army and who motivates me when I am tired. Luckily, with Insanity and P90X, I need no motivation as the programs give variations of activity and don’t lead to boredom.
