Insanity and Active Series

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

I am finished with Insanity! It feels so weird to say that. It actually took 2 weeks longer than planned because of my little South Carolina vacation, but I didn't mind. I feel like my pause in the workout gave me a renewed sense of motivation and encouragement to finish out strong and then start another Beach Body video series.

Yes, I am starting another workout program, not quite as intense, but I want to keep moving. I don't want to lose what I have built. Jen from The Adventures of Our Army Life recently completed a half marathon across a mountain! Like seriously up the mountain and down the other side to the finish line. She is such an inspiration, I want to sign up for a run now. I looked at the Color Run in Charleston next May, maybe I can talk John into it?! And I'm so lucky that I just happened to get the Dr. Scholl's Active Series Replacement Insoles from Influenster.

I had been wanting to do a vlog for the longest time. I've always had this desire to do it even before starting my blog here, but John wasn't too keen on the idea of me talking about myself on there I guess safety reasons, but I figured telling y'all about these insoles would be the perfect first vlog. If it goes well I might do more, if not... at least I tried. So take a look, please don't judge my kinda bad video skills and let me know if you like it!

So now on to my wrap up of Insanity. I really think I did a great job throughout this journey. I have honestly done so much better than I expected. I was completely blown away by how much I was able to push myself. I truly believe that because of y'all and your amazing support I was tried to push myself more than if I had only had John's support.

I did the before and after photos. I think you can tell slight differences, but even if the photo's aren't that good at telling the changes in my body I'm still happy.

As for the numerical results, I wish my weight would have gone down a little bit more. But if there is anything I've learned from this journey it's that the scales lie to me!

Again thanks for your continued support! I really appreciate y'all.

  1. Congratulations!! You look so good! Such an awesome accomplishment!


  2. Awesome job! Seeing lost inches is so much better than weight because I'm sure you gained muscle, which weighs more. So it's really hard to judge progress on a scale. You should feel so proud--you look great! I hope you find a race that's perfect for you :-) Way to go!

  3. Look at you go! What an awesome job!!!

  4. Aww you are so sweet! :) You are absolutely amazing my friend! I'm so proud of you for all that you have accomplished.
