WELL I FINALLY DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've completed Insanity today!!! I even did my final fit test, which according to the schedule is supposed to be tomorrow, but because I'm leaving this afternoon for vacation I won't be able to do it tomorrow, so I just went ahead and did it today.
My stats for the last 2 months are so exciting!!!!
Pant Size: 10-12
Body Fat Percentage: 26.87
Leg (thigh): 23.5
Arm (bicep): 12
TODAY'S FINAL STATS:
Pant Size: 7
Body Fat Percentage: 25.5
Leg (thigh): 20
Arm (bicep): 10.5
I've reached almost all of the goals I initially set for myself!!!! I'm really really stoked!!!
Added to all of this, I told myself that I was going to try to run a 5k when Insanity was over. Our town held a 5k last night, and I just hoped and prayed to be able to finish it...instead...I KILLED IT!!! 3.1 miles in 35.04 minutes, AND not only did I finish, but I took 2nd place for my age group!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm ridiculously stoked today, and I feel like a million bucks!!!!
I'm emailing my form and before/after pics to Beachbody today to get my "I EARNED IT" shirt, and let me say, I feel completely satisfied and proud knowing that I DID earn it!!! I really believe that, had I not have done this workout, there would've been no way for me to do as well as I did last night. I've tried jogging on the treadmill before, but doing 3 miles was taking me well into an hour and a half!!!!! THAT was before I did Insanity!! My stamina through this run last night was like nothing I've ever had before!!! I jogged pretty much the entire run, knew how to control my breathing, and walked only when I had a cup of water in my hand! LOL! Shaun T rang in the back of my head "KEEP GOING! YOU CAN FREAKIN DO THIS"...as he says in one of his videos....and it really kept me pushing myself to the limits last night!! OH OH OH....and guess what?? My hubby this morning came in and woke me up and said "so, how do your legs feel this morning? Are you sore?" and I got up out of bed, and said "NOPE, I FEEL GREAT!!!"...he gave me this look and said "You're my hero!"...LOLOL!!!! Seriously, a great feeling!!!
I know I was dying the first week of Insanity and didn't really think I'd be able to do it. Heck, my poor hubby did a workout on Monday and he's still really sore and refuses to do it again. To each their own. But this is the first time I've ever committed to doing something like this, and to actually finish it, and finish it STRONG...absolutely incredible!!!!
My hubby, our son, my coach, my MFP friends, and my CafeMom friends have all been so motivating, and I really think that if I didn't have this support team, that I wouldn't have been able to get as far as I have. This is just the beginning though!!! Now I know what I'm capable of doing...I will be making additional goals and pushing myself as hard as possible each and every time. It really IS a matter of digging deeper!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope you all finish your workouts strong!!! I'm leaving for vacation for several weeks today. I wish you all the best of luck in whatever you're doing!!! :)
NOBODY EVER GOT AHEAD BY SITTING ON THEIR BEHIND!!
ONE HAPPILY MARRIED MOMMY!!
