Day 107 Ok I'm insane...

I know I said I wasn't going to do Insanity.  I know I said I didn't think I COULD do insanity.  I know I said only a REALLY fit person could even do this, but......I did it.  I couldn't help it. My husband has been doing it now for about 5 days & although he did make it look like pure torture, I couldn't help but try it.  Seriously, you have to hear the noises he makes while doing it.  But anyhoo.  So today while I was home alone I decided to give it a try & here are the results. 

The first day you do what's called the Fit Test.  I guess you do that periodically throughout the program to see how far you've come.  And here is how I did:

Switch Kicks - 107
Power Jacks - 25
Power Knees - 50 on the L leg & 51 on the R leg
Power Jumps - 35
Four Corners (I don't remember what this is really called) - 5 rotations
Suicides - 8
Push up jacks - 18
Plank Obliques (I think this is what he said) - 25

So for the breakdown.  The only thing I physically couldn't do were the Push Up Jacks.  I physically can't do a push up on the floor.  BUT I compromised & I did them on the wall. :)  It's the best I could do.  Maybe one day I'll be able to do them on the floor.  The other thing I THOUGHT I wouldn't be able to do when he was demonstrating them were the suicides & the plank obliques.  But I gave them a try & I was able to do them.  Of course my plank obliques were PITIFUL.  I mean it's hard to bring your leg up when your big ol' stomach is in the way.  BUT I know that's not the point.  The point is I did it & I survived.  So I guess tomorrow will start the real workout (maybe).  I have clinical & I have to leave my house by 5:00 am to get there on time, sooo I may do Day 1 on Friday instead.  Either way, I have to say that it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be & I am looking forward to doing Day 1 & then doing the Fit Test again in a week to see if I've progressed.  Yes I know, I am eating my words.  Do you want to see a picture of me afterwards?

I was a little sweaty & a LOT red, lol.  Now on to study time. 


  1. We are so much alike! I too thought I was so big and wouldn't be able to do it! At 233 I'm DOING the damn thing!! You get so red just like me lol lol too funny! You rocked it though girl!!!

    1. Yep, I really thought I wouldn't be able to do some of those things but I surprised myself for sure.
