Congrats on all the hard work everyone, and kudos for sticking with it! I've done two rounds of Insanity, and I still absolutely love it. It still kicks my butt 6 days a week, but it is totally worth it. With a con coming up in May, I have decided to join my local gym so I can make use of their treadmills and weight machines to really get myself in the best shape possible before then.

Dig Deeper everyone!

Insanity Day 63: Fit Test & PROGRAM done.
Switch Kicks: 56
Power Jacks: 65
Power Knees: 116
Power Jumps: 63
Globe Jumps: 10
Suicide Jumps: 15
Push-up Jacks: 29
Low Plank Obliques: 66

Not bad, new records in some, stagnation elsewhere, small drop in Suicide Jumps.

Now the weight topic, cause we all know weight drives us (even if it shouldn't.)

June 19th 2013 I was ~249 lbs
January 9th 2014 I was at 209.4
I'm going to guesstimate my weight back last January at around 260.

I've only actively exercised with Insanity for four months of that duration.

Pictures later.

Awesome job, Drazhar! You rock. I am so excited for this coming Sunday: I am attending a workshop to become INSANITY CERTIFIED!! Hopefully they'll let me set up a few Insanity classes at work, and I'll be looking for more opportunities to teach at gyms and clubs in my area (:

So I was gonna do Day 2: Plyometric Cardio Circuit last night after an hour nap... but I somehow managed to sleep until 5:30 AM or so, it's done now.

I'll deal with the day loss.

That was about two hours ago, but yeah. I'll deal.

I said I would, and so I did.

Insanity Day 1: Fit Test COMPLETE
1.5 minutes extra between globe jumps and suicide jumps, as well as between suicide and push-up jacks, better to break than to lose your gut.
Switch Kicks: 54 (down 2 from record high)
Power Jacks: 61 (down 2 from record high)
Power Knees: 123 (NEW RECORD)
Power Jumps: 60 (down 3 from record high)
Globe Jumps: 9 (down 1 from record high)
Suicide Jumps: 15 (down 2 from record high)
Push-up Jacks: 22 (down 7 from record high)
Low Plank Obliques: 70 (TIED record)

I'll dig deeper again tomorrow.

I had some... issues to deal with in life and I vowed to restart today.

I really do need to get a new battery, I'll take care of that soon.

Almost moved ahead on days there, but I'll blame Diablo 3 version 2.0.1 for that.

Insanity Day 3: Cardio Power & Resistance DONE
Small delay, ran past midnight. It won't throw off the schedule.

Starting to consider becoming a Coach so I can help motivate more people (and get me some discounts)

Damned if I didn't lose an hour in there somewhere

Insanity Day 8: Cardio Power & Resistance wrapped up!

Four hours of sleep was NOT enough, I ended up zonking by 10 AM. I got it all done and I'll handle Pure Cardio again later. It'll be GREAT!

Hopefully everyone else is doing well on their own journeys and I can keep motivating!

Day 9 all wrapped up and etc etc, staying awake all day yesterday did not prove fruitful.
