Insanity Day 0

A few months ago my good friend in South Africa asked me if I'd like to do "Insanity" with him. I wanted to say: "I'm already doing insanity, I wake up at 6 am every morning to go to work." But, I realized he wasn't talking about THAT insanity. He was talking about the infamous workout by Shaun T, apparently "the hardest fitness workout ever put on DVD."

I only had to look at one short intro video about Insanity on YouTube to decide that it was, indeed, insane. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about fitness, health and exercising, and I've done many fitness challenges, but at that time, it was winter and if I'm going to torture myself like that, I need to do it during a season where I can at least show off the results and not hide my "insane" body under three layers of clothing.

Rightfully called, Insanity, this workout is totally insane with "nonstop intervals of strength, power, resistance, and ab and core training moves." You can do it at home and you don't need any weights. It promises "the hardest body you've ever had" by doing this workout for two months. And I'm guessing it goes along with a well-balanced, high-protein eating program.

Now that spring is finally here and sundresses and shorts will come out of hibernation, I've decided to take on the insanity and challenge myself physically, and I'm guessing, emotionally. I've "coerced" my co-workers into partaking in this madness with me. If I'm going down, I'm taking everybody with me...

We'll be starting Insanity next week, and do it together after work. And on Saturdays we'll all do it at home. I'm excited, as I've seen lots of incredible results online. You can Google some before and after pics. My goal is definitely not to lose weight, but to be fit, strong and toned. Also, I'm curious to see how far I can push myself, as I've heard that it's really really tough.

I'll be documenting my progress here on Pretty.Random.Things.,of course, and share my before and after pics after two months. If you'd like to join us, you can download the program illegally buy the DVD program and start with us on Monday. Also remember to print out the Insanity Workout Calendar (PDF) and the Fit Test sheet (PDF).

Also, I'd love to know who of you have done this and what your experience was. And, if you're joining us, let me know, so we can offer each other support and share our progress.

Let the insanity begin!
