I had problems with insanity.
Back when I lost 60lbs, I had a great gym routine going. I looked forward to it every day (literally it was the highlight of my crazy school life) and my day didn't feel complete without a workout.
I was heading into spring break at my lowest weight ever (185) and wanted to kick start my weight loss again to get over a plateau. So I started insanity.
AND IT WAS EFFING HARD.
I mean really, really hard! Keep in mind, I had lost 60lbs at this point and was working out pretty strenuously every single day. The first time I did the fit test I pushed myself so hard I thought I was going to throw up. But I decided to continue on through the rest of the program.
Now, this is where I messed up.
I started to dread working out. Rather than looking forward to the gym every day, I would DREAD having to do insanity. I mean really, really dread. I kept putting it off and putting it off. Even when I felt like working out and going to the gym, I didn't let myself because I didn't want to not do insanity. But then, of course, I'd put off insanity until it was too late in the day and then I'd just not work out at all.
My advice: borrow a copy from a friend and try it. If it's too hard, work your way up to it. I really should have stopped and built up more endurance so that I could start it and have it be more enjoyable instead of so difficult. Oh, and make sure you do it with a heart rate monitor!
