You got this girl! I'm in the middle of Week 5, the beginning of Phase 2, which is a new beast completely. I thought I was done being sore, but could barely move this morning ha. It's worth it though, definitely seeing the results. My FI is doing it with me as well, which is good, because I'm less likely to wuss out if he's already done his workout for the day. We do ours at different times during the day though, I do mine before he gets back from work & he does his in the evening...which I kind of like, because I tend to get mucho sweaty...not a cute look for me:) Keep it up, I have to tell myself it will be worth it when I'm a hot bride. I also find that yelling cuss words at Shaun T while doing the workout feels very good.

Haha you girls made me laugh!! 

 

I did try to start up a routine this week and I only ended up doing Pure Cardio one day.  But going to do another today and going to try at least 3 times a week starting next week.  I have our 1 yr anniversary coming up and we are heading back down to Mexico and I want to look as good as I did last year.  I am very active and workout all the time but I've noticed that this type of workout really is the only thing that gets the fat off and the legs leaner.  We just installed floor to ceiling mirrors in our gym this week which is nice and motivating but provides an honest view from any angle.  Now its easy to see what things are moving more than they should be haha. 

 

Have a great weekend ladies and keep sweatin' it out!!

I recently gave up... I wanna start again though! Hurricane sandy flooded our workout room so were trying to get all of the water up. I would def recommend it though. It's a commitment, 6 days a week and 45 mins and then I think goes to like an hour long workout it the second month. I was able to see results though! Hope this helps:)

So I am in the recovery week of Insanity, so 1 month down already. I didn't start the program with the intention to lose weight as I workout all the time, but just as a change of pace from my strength training-heavy routine. I didn't bother with before pictures or taking measurements either because I didn't expect much to change... well I was dead wrong! I tried on my wedding dress less than 3 full weeks into the program (I was planning on having it let out) and it zipped like a dream! When I weighed myself I was 5lb down. It's crazy and I'm super excited. ...well actually I'm super nervous about beginning the new month 2 DVDs, but I still have a few days before I need to start those. cheesy.gif

The ONLY way I've been able to stick to it is with a workout buddy, otherwise I probably would have turned off the first DVD about 10 min into the workout. This way my competative side kicks in and I think "if she can do it so can I!" and I keep pushing myself.

The workout buddy def helps. Mine was my fiancé, and it was so funny cause we would both be DEAD tired but we would push through, like trying to show the other one up. Then he threw his back out and I had midterms... and we have become bums again. I'm starting up again though just as soon as our workout room is fixed from the flood!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
