Laura Oh my gosh about September! It didn't sneak up on us, it just jumped right on us like a lion or something! Have a great day with your hair appointment. I love getting my hair cut and colored. It's very renewing! Literally! I don't have to go back to work until Tuesday! The only thing is that this is the first of the month, so I will be pushed to get things done. I may try to get a couple of hours of work in this weekend. Or maybe not.

Laura- I worked in elementary 6 years and high school 1. I like all levels but pre-k and high school are my favorite. I tend to sub a lot in the high school I taught at since I know lots of the staff & students.
Diana- thanks for getting us started

My husband left this morning at 5:00 for a family vacation in Yellowstone. He'll get back next Sunday. It will be a weird week. I'm not used to being alone At least the furkids will be here.
today- TF 45ez

Hi Everyone!

Check-In: TF Fire 60 w/weighted gloves

I decided not to do the Insanity Fit Test and the first workout for the second month. I think the combo is 80+ minutes. That was a little much for me today. I will see how I feel on Monday. I think tomorrow we are going downtown to the market and act like tourists.

Good Morning!!

Diana, you're smart to rotate and exchange workouts when it's just too much. We ALL have days like that. Joking aside I think today is one for me! Tempted to try a run for the first time in my life. Not sure why though! Fire 60 is such a great workout! Have a wonderful time this weekend. I've never been to South Carolina and it looks like you have some cool things planned

Teacher - Hug those babies and they will help! I know what you mean though, it's weird to have an empty house!

Take care all - not sure what I'm doing for workouts today but I'm thinking of substituting pure cardio (jogging or starimaster) for a TF workout. I really need the change!

Hi Everyone!

Check-In:
Insanity Fit Test
Insanity Maximum Interval Circuit

We finished up downtown and DH wanted to make up his fishing lines since he is going fishing tomorrow. I decided to go back to the shop to do a workout. I decided to attempt the first day of month 2 of the rotation. I did the fit test. I improved over the last time. This really shocked me. Last Sunday was my last day of TTOM and it went on for 15 days! Also, last weekend I developed shingles. I cannot believe that I did better in the fit test. Totally amazing. Then I did the actual workout. Whew! The fit test followed by the actual workout was really tough, but I got through it.

Awesome job Diana!!

Fire 45 EZ for me today! This is week 15 and a recovery week. After week 20 I'm going to do a TF and Chalean Extreme hybrid that Jenelle (Chalene's sister) created. Looks intense and I'm ready for the challenge and change!

Take care - it's a beautiful fall day here in the Northeast!

Hi Everyone!

Check-In: Insanity Maximum Interval Plyo

Teacher Those temps are awful. The only way to cool off is to swim or stay in the A/C.

Hi Everyone!

Check-In: Insanity Maximum Cardio Conditioning

Have I mentioned that these workouts are hard? Geesh! I think anything but straight cardio (kickboxing, etc) is hard for me. And please tell me, exactly what is the point behind all of these different types of push ups? Ah, I see, they are to torture me in different positions. Well, I have 3 1/2 weeks left to work my way up with these. Ah, like I did with the last ones, right? Oh, the problem with that is they never got easy, either. I guess I will have 3 1/2 weeks of poking fun at myself.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I have DOM's from this new set of workouts. Every time I move I feel a DOM in a new and different place.
