Our Insanity Begins....
No, I'm actually not talking about decoding baby babble with a toddler that has mastered the art of 'playing you off'; nor am I talking about my teddy bear baby who is also controlling with his LOUD crying all because I took a toy, remote or well, anything out of his hand. But, yes that does work my nerves. :-) I'm actually talking about Insanity, the 60-day intense workout system with Shaun T. We started a couple nights ago and we actually didn't quit and sit on the couch while watching them finish the exercises. Hell, we even did it again the next day....and that's something for us to be proud of! We're actually going to try and stay committed! Our plan is to get our bodies back in shape as well as do a little toning and sculpting.
My husband is a member of 24-Hr Fitness Club. I used to be but gave it up a couple years ago because I just wasn't going and didn't want to waste that money. Whether my hubby works out there regularly or not, he doesn't feel like its a waste because sometimes he plays pick up basketball. Anyway, I said all that because after buying Insanity at an awesomely used price of $45 (but in perfect condition), I was thinking that even if we had paid the $130+shipping it costs brand new, it still wouldn't have been a waste of money if compared to the $30-$35 a monthly gym membership would cost me. Sure, I don't have access to various other exercise classes and yoga classes, but technically after 4-5 (months) gym payments, I've already covered the cost of Insanity!
If you'd like to check out Insanity or some other workout dvds by Team Beach Body go here. They're all not expensive nor come with goo gobs of dvds. If it were up to me, I would've just gotten Hip Hop Abs by Shaun T (of Insanity) but the hubs looked at me like I had one eyeball.
This is apart of my 'New Self" project that I have started in my mind. The natural hair lifestyle has taught me how to commit to something, so hopefully that commitment goes along with my fitness and Insanity.
Do you have any fitness goals that you are starting or maintaining? When do you plan to start? What helps you stay committed, even through the pain and soreness?
