I did it! I made halfway through the Insanity workout! Right now I am on the "Recovery" week which has you doing Core Cardio and Balance (not too much of a recovery...but better than it could be I suppose). Next week I will be starting the last four weeks which are the longest and most intense weeks of workouts. I'm a little nervous about it, but I WILL finish this program. Only 30 more days to go!
Insanity has NOT been easy. There have been days I've actually cried during the workouts because of how strenuous and exhausting they are. I've almost given up a few times, but I've forced myself to press on, and I'm so incredibly glad that I've stuck with it! I'm continuing to see results in my body every week! Here are my updated results:
Starting weight: 167.8 lbs
Current Weight: 151.4 lbs
Total weight loss: 16.4 lbs
I've also dropped down two dress/pants sizes! I'm a size 8 now! YAY!
On a side note: Two of my best friends are getting married within the next couple months and I'm so excited for them! I have the honor and privilege of being a bridesmaid for one of them and the Matron of Honor for the other! I don't want to give too many details or information out for the privacy of the brides, but I just wanted to update you on how my days have been filled with reliving wedding planning. I mightily enjoy it! It is much less stressful being on the other side of wedding planning compared to being the bride.
Both "My" Brides have found their wedding dresses which look FABULOUS on them! They both picked the first dress they tried on (I can't believe it! It took me like 1,000,000 dresses before I found "the one"). Anyway, they also both picked out the bridesmaid dresses, which I tried on and LOVE! Here are the two different bridesmaid dresses I will be wearing (in a size 8!!!--I just had to repeat that small detail again). These are the exact colors they will be in:
I can't wait to support my friends on their journey of wedding planning and marriage. They are both so special to me and I'm thrilled to help them with whatever they need!
