Right here!!  Same as you - lacto-ovo.  I didn't follow the meal plan exactly.  I eat pretty healthy all the time so I just stuck with my normal meals.  In the back of the booklet I believe it shows you what you can substitute in for things you may not like or eat.  For the protein I believe it listed tofu and beans as options for us veggies.  That is pretty much what I eat all the time anyways which is why it wasn't much different for me.  I would also recommend lots of extra protein supplement.  If you do take Shakeology it does not have enough protein so I would definitely add some in or make sure you take 1-2 shakes a day.  If you do soy I'd recommend adding in soy milk to the shake since it has more protein as well. 

 

I am not a nutritionist by any means but I've been a veggie pretty much all my life and I've always been very active so I know how important protein is.  Hope this helps a little!!

Hi TropicLover,

 

I am one of the stop/start insanity ladies on this thread. I started and stopped a few times, but in my biggest stretch I lost 15 pounds (without changing my diet or doing any other exercises). I started after the new year, but then I stopped again a few days later.

 

I was wondering if you'd be my virtual workout buddy. Maybe knowing someone else is doing it with me will help me to commit to it. What do you say?

Hi ladies!

 

Hope you all had a great weekend!

 

Today I start week 3 of Insanity and tonight will be my 2nd fit test.  Definitely curious how I will do this time! :)

 

Hope you are all doing well with your work outs!

Definitely!  Wow your numbers are so motivating!  You can totally do it.  The say a routine takes about 2 weeks to become 'normal' so if we can both get through the 2 weeks I'm hoping the next 2 wouldn't be so difficult to get motivated for.

 

I just did the fit test today and was totally entertained....lol mainly by my low numbers and the fact that I can barely do a push up let alone a power jack push up ;-)  Either way I'm happy that I can cross day 1 off....day 2 here I come!

Wow!! All you ladies seem so motivated and energized!!  I LOVE IT!!!

 

To update you new ladies...my wedding is about 2 months past but my AHR is in a few weeks.  I finished Insanity before the wedding and felt amazing so I was planing on doing Insanity again to get me back to where I was....but I just haven't been as motivated.  Its kinda easier knowing I no longer have to walk around in a bikini in front of friends and family LOL.  The dress covers everything pretty much.  But I am still being active...just not as active as I had hoped.  I skip every day or two so I really need to kick it up a notch.

 

So even though I've been there and done that and motivated others in the past....you guys are now motivating me.  I love this board so much!! 

Probably doing Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs tonight!!!

 

Keep up all the hard work ladies!!  The results will start to show after 1-2 weeks.  Its awesome!!!

if it's any help, in my experience, it took a few months for the weight I'd lost during Insanity to return. like you, I continued doing it a few times per week but then eventually fizzled out during the way-too-hot Texas summer. I weighed the same as when I stopped for awhile, though I'm not sure if I stayed in shape (cardiovascularly) that entire time. either way, you should be fine for your AHR, even if you stopped today (not that you want to, just in case ; ).

Thanks TropicLover,

 

I saw your post last night, and it has already helped. I really didn't want to get going this morning, but I did because I wanted to let you know that I did the Plyo. Thanks so much!

 

When I did the fit test the very first time, my numbers sucked. I couldn't do a push up, but now I love level one drills because I feel so accomplished every time I do those four pushups.

 

Even after stopping Insanity for two months, I'm still not back to my original fitness level (I'm not at my best either) but not too bad. As Kellygrrrl suggests above, the work you put in sticks even if you don't!

 

I'd love to hear how you felt about today. Congratulations on day 2!

Thanks hun!!  I've been doing weights, cycle, sprints and some other stuff but I never feel as good as I do after I do Insanity.  So I hope to keep it part of my weekly routine moving forward.  I just need to be more consistent ever week with whatever physical activity I decide to do.  Consistency is key and that is why I feel I've been slacking off.

 

Thanks for posting your experience.

AAHH!  You (and bride2012) totally motivated me to get started after I read through this thread!  You both look so amazing!  I am sure you look like you did at your wedding still!  The 6 days a week is a little intense I am finding!  You AHR will be so much fun!  YAY!!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
