Insanity: Week 1

Monday, August 5, 2013

This first week I was very encouraged. Yes, I am pretty sure everybody who starts a workout program, joins a gym or does whatever to better their fitness feels encouraged. But I felt really encouraged. I pushed myself harder, sweated more and stayed more motivated.

I know it's bad to weigh every day, but sometimes I can't resist. In the middle of the week I was up from my beginning weight. But instead of getting super discouraged, I felt motivated. I had sore calves, shoulders and oblique muscles so I knew I must be gaining weight from building muscle. Although overall I must have done something right because I'm moving on towards my goals. Let's take a look at this week's results.

My lowest weight since I've started taking thyroid medicine has been 139.2, so I am excited that I am making progress back towards that as well as my final goal of 125. And I'm definitely excited that I lost 1.5 inches this week (towards my goal of 158 inches). I have to keep reminding myself of my goals! As a side note I gained half an inch in my thighs, but I'm thinking I'm building up my muscles in my legs which I am totally okay with.

I can't wait to come back next week and give y'all more progress...


  1. Good job! Keep up the good work.

  2. Wow good job! My friend just started Insanity and she said it's killer...and she's the in shape one of our group! Good luck with the rest of it.

  3. Great job, Ashley! I need to be better about tracking the inches that I've lost. I can definitely tell a difference since I started my workout program about five weeks ago, but I have no idea what the specifics are =\
