Ok, so thats it Insanity over and done with.... I'm not going to lie, the last week and a half has been pretty poor. I've been busy at work and doing an hour of exercise like insanity starting at 6:30-6:45 pm when I've been up since 5:45am actually beat me into missing a few sessions. If you've got a hectic lifestyle the MAX section of insanity will test your will power and endurance.....hats off to anyone that 100% does the plan.
Anyway, I did my final fit test today and here are my results:
I've learnt some very good technique over the last month which enabled me to absolutely nail the power jumps, combined with my new core strength and explosive power I actually managed to keep up with the "robots" on the DVD. But look at the change since Day 1 I'm getting on for TWICE as fit as I was back then....and thats in 2 months!
As for my body change..... I was 16 stone 9lbs when I started and have finished off at 16 stone 3lbs. So 6lbs loss.....ok, not amazing but my weak point for my whole life has been my diet. My food choices are very poor and something I seriously need to look at to get some real changes in my body. However, all things considered my body has changed:
CHEST - lost 1 inch
Stomach - lost 2 inches
Thighs - lost 3.5 inches
Biceps - put on 1 inch
So ok, only 6 lbs weight loss but lost a lot of my body somewhere.....so I'm definitely more muscley and stronger.
So what next....... 12 weeks today I'm doing the Tonbridge half marathon so need to get my running back on track whilst keeping insanity in my life. Its given me such a buzz and getting comments from people who notice the change is always nice.
So here is a 2 week sample of my basic plan for the next 12 weeks:
So in 12 weeks time I should be half marathon fit!
So my conclusion for insanity.....happy I found it, happy I kept to it as much as I did. Its changed my body, changed the way I look at fitness but proved that food is my downfall.....as someone my size shouldn't work out as hard as I have for the last 2 months and only lose 6lbs. MUST DIG DEEPER!
