Before & After

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

So, as much as I really do not want to post half naked photos of myself for the world to see I suppose I will do it.  The only reason I am doing it is because I actually surprised myself by seeing that there was actually quite a difference made by doing Insanity for 60 days.  I bet if I stuck to the nutrition program that it came with I would have done much better.

My Fit Test results today were better than the last time as were Michelle’s.  I will have to do another post with Day 1 vs. Day 60 results because they are quite amazing.  As much as you don’t think you improved just seeing the numbers down on paper show you actually improved a lot.  Those darn Power Jumps just kill me though, holy cow.  Wow.  Oh, and seriously, Michelle video taped me doing a Push Up Jack, wow, not pretty.

Ok, enough is enough.  I’ll get the photos now and put them up for all to see.  Be nice or I won’t put anymore photos up.  Or, maybe I’ll substitute Michelle’s body for mine next time.

Hello,


So today was one heck of a struggle getting through my workout. “Boy do I hate working out”. (You will never hear me say that. No matter how hard the workout is.) I, unlike Jo-Anne, never looked like I was unhealthy or overweight, but I sure did struggle with it mentally like most people, especially women do. I battled with my body image for more than 10 years. Always wanting to look that “special way”, but reached a point to where I look damn good and ain’t no one gonna tell me anything different. (Two snaps to the side and ending with a circle.)

I have always been active and encourage others to be as well, not just because it helps people keep up with me, but because it is good for you and keeps you younger. As I get older, I realize that being healthy and active will not only keep me sane, but make me stronger, help me live longer (a goal all people should strive to master) and hopefully not need botox.

So tomorrow is another day, another workout and another day of happiness. Cheers to you and your health.

Michelle
