I can barely type. I am so super duper sore and tired.

Let me start at the beginning so you can know every detail instead of me just telling you the simple version. You're welcome.

My husband struggles with weight issues. He's not overly bad, but he's constantly trying to lose some weight and struggles to either get it off or keep it off. We recently found out he has high cholesterol and since his dad has been on cholesterol medicine since a young age, he didn't want to have to do that so young. SOoooooo...we've been trying to make some changes here.

Health wise.

It sucks.

You know why it sucks?

Because we got "Insanity" and started that this week. And although we're only on DAY TWO, I think I'm going to die.

Here, you need to see this to understand:

THAT is what we're doing. I got up at 5AM this morning to work out! What has happened to me?! I don't EVER get up early, BUT I am doing it to get in shape, to support my husband and to feel good. Although I really don't feel good right now. You know, when it hurts to laugh. Or move. Or BREATHE.

Wish me luck that we don't die this week.


  1. Good luck that you don't die this week.

    What doesn't kill us makes us stronger?

  2. Wow Crazy Insantity but you will never regret it. You guys are so young. I wish someone would have told me 10 years ago that I really need to do this. I mean it's like you know but when you have a health issue it really hits you.
    Good luck I know you will do great because you are doing it together!

  3. Holy FREAK! Please don't die because I really need us to do a package swap in March and if you're not there to do it...what next? A new person?! Out of the question. UNACCEPTABLE.

    Have fun...er...don't die while you get ripped!

  4. 1. I am sorry that you are sore.

    2. You will not be sorry you are sore in 6 weeks when you are buff!

    3. I found an awesome site with lots of great (healthy) recipes. http://www.superhealthykids.com/

  5. Wow! They should call it Insanity, not Intensity! I can see why you are in pain. Ouch! I think it's great though. I need to do something like this... BAD!

  6. Ha ha... I don't know what I'm talking about. It is called Insanity. Duh!

  7. That looks a lot like P90X...which I've dabbled in before. I know that sore feeling. It sucks. That's great that your husband is motivation enough...my husband wants us to work out, but I'm like, "Meh...I'll just sit and read a book instead" lol. I hope you can do it!!!

  8. I started the Insanity workout about 3 weeks ago and I love it- when it's done...LOL! Seriously, I've lost 5 pounds in 2 weeks, it has helped me with my running and my son works out with it and he says it has helped him with weight lifting. Most of the time, it's hard for me to keep up, but I do the best I can with it and I do see myself improving. It's a great workout- keep us updated!

  9. I admire you excessively. Clearly there will be less of you to admire fairly soon but what is left promises to be even more admirable (you know .. health wise).

  10. wow...good for you. I could NEVER get up at 5:00 in the morning. I didn't even know there WAS a 5:00 in the morning (tee,hee)
    keep it up.......good you are able to support your hubby. You'll both be so sexy you can burn of another 200 calories (um, if you get my drift, that's what I've been told)

  11. Um, how bad do I want it? Not that bad. You crazy lady! You are amazing. No way I could commit to that. I'll take my afternoon 2 mile run, please. Thank you. :) Keep us posted. You should do before and after pics.

  12. I can't believe you started with Insanity. I have hard core work out friends who have to work up to that.


I'm mysteriously judging whether or not you're going to comment or not...you know you want to.
