Insanity Does the Body Good | I lost inches!!

Insanity is probably the most intense workout I have tried at home. Its just as bad as going to a boot camp class at the gym. I do see a huge difference in my body since I started out. My measurements in the very beginning were as follows:

Height - 5' 7"
Weight - 147
Waist - 33
Chest - 36
Hips -38
Thigh - 23
Upper Arm - 12
Belly Pouch - 36

At the present time, this is what I am working with:

Height - 5'7"
Weight - 148.2
Waist - 30.5"
Chest - 36"
Hips - 39"
Thighs - 22"
Upper Arm - 12"
Belly Pouch - 34"

So overall I am seeing great results! I have clearly lost inches everywhere I wanted to so far. 

My chest will most likely not go down at all or at least not by very much. 

My arms will probably go down by maybe an inch when all is said and done.

My waist and belly pouch as well as the upper thighs are where I really want to get rid of the weight. Luckily those areas have dropped significantly since I started. I would really like for the pouch to drop down a good 5". That would be amazing...

But lets be realistic...

My ass however has seemed to increase in size significantly!!

So far I have seemed to gain 1.2lbs and it all seems to be going straight to my ass!!

Fucking awesome!!

Loving this workout!! I have not been really good about doing my runs like before, unfortunately. Its very sad that I only have 11miles on my nike running app so far. :(

I want to start incorporating a mile after each workout. Sometimes I feel up to it. Sometimes I dont. 

I still have not been able to do a full master cleanse like I really want to. Ughh... I need to find the time when I can get that together and actually do it. Problem I have is that food is way too readily available... Its annoying..

My Insanity Challenge | Fit Test 2

I did my second Fit Test Monday night along with Cardio Curcuit.

Yes, I actually did both in the same night!!

So my results are as follows. I will post my measurements at a later date.

Fit Test 1
Switch Kicks - 50
Power Jacks - 30
Power Knees - 60
Power Jumps - 36
Globe Jumps - 28
Suicide Jumps - 11
Push-Up Jacks - 15
Low Plank Oblique - 54

Fit Test 2
Switch Kicks - 52
Power Jacks - 40
Power Knees -53
Power Jumps -30
Globe Jumps - 40
Suicide Jumps - 15
Push-Up Jacks -20
Low Plank Oblique -60

I did a little better in most of them, but in some I did fall a little short.

I am going to make an excuse and say that I did do the Fit Test AFTER I did the Cardio Curcuit and also that my ankle was bothering me.

No clue why my ankle hurt that day but whatever.

I didnt have time to measure, but last week when I did I lost inches in all my problem areas and gained an inch in my ASS!!

I have not a single problem with that because its all muscle!

I actually gained a pound surprisingly last time I checked. But its ok because its all in my ass....

I gained a pound of Ass......

My Insanity Challenge - Days 9-30 I lost track...

So I have been doing Insanity for 4 weeks now!!

Yes, I did and unfortunately I am only 2 damn weeks into the program!!!! I am actually on Day 15.

I took quite a few days off here and there, and as of today I have not done it in an entire week. (Since last Tuesday)

Yes, Slacking, Big Time!! Well technically aside from last week I was doing it every 1-2 days which in my opinion is pretty good, seeing how intense the workout is.

I will say that I have had Laryngitis for the past 5 days, so thats going to be my excuse for last week Dammit!!!

Tonight I am going to do my second Fit Test and record so I can post tomorrow. I also want to run a mile & do the next workout which will be the Polymetric Cardio Circuit video tonight.

Most definitely will be posting tomorrow because I have to update my measurements and my Fit Test progress!!

But yea, I have measured myself and have been taking pictures to keep up with everything. I will be posting pictures and everything else when you can actually see a big difference.

My goal is not so much to loose weight but I do want to really tone up all over. My 3 problem areas are my midsection, my upper arms and also my inner thighs. Those are the only problem areas that I need to work on and I have actually seen a big improvement in it already!

I am actually excited to see how I do on the Fit Test tonight. I wonder how much progress I have actually made since the first.

My NAACP Petition Submission


I signed the NAACP Petition for Treyvon Martin. This is what I wrote in my personal note...

I am completely disappointed with the outcome of the trial. I was assuming the jury would at least go for manslaughter simply because Zimmerman caused the death of Treyvon simply by following him for no reason.

The fact that Zimmerman was considered not guilty in the same state as Casey Anthony is really disturbing to me. After the Anthony trial I said that I thought people would be more inclined to commit murder and other acts of crime simply because she was set free.

Two years later and Zimmerman is set free for.

I have 2 sons and I really do not want to have to worry about someone getting away with the murder of my child or anyone else's child, claiming false self defense.

Teenagers do not try to kill people when getting into fights. Treyvon was clearly afraid because he was being followed at night by a strange man, and unbeknownst to him, yielding a gun. I have to say if it was me I would have confronted him and it probably would have ended up in a fight of some sort as well.

I am not a violent person and I do not have a record, but I believe that whatever Treyvon did that night he believed was in his own self defense.

Zimmerman had absolutely NO RIGHT to follow an unarmed, innocent, child, and I feel that because of the verdict of this trial what I said after the Anthoney trial will be evermore true.

Please help the people of america find justice.


I'm going to add that I hate the fact that so many people are getting away with such crimes, but at the same time innocent people are being sent to jail.

A woman sent to jail for 20 years for firing warning shots against an abusive husband is not ok. But then again she was black, so I guess so...

It appears that, at least in Florida, you can get away with killing children, including young black males and babies you gave birth to but didnt want, as long as you are white or close to it.

Its not fair. Its not just. Its absolutely absurd.

I feel for the Martin family. I feel for little Caylee. I feel for all of those who have been victims of racism and oppression. I feel for those who have been victims of abuse of any kind.

I myself have been a victim of some of the above.

The people of America need to grow up and learn that diversity is beautiful. Everyone is different and its not going to change.

People of all ethnic backgrounds rallied against the verdict. People of all races and origins are fighting for justice!

Right now I feel like so many have not gotten past the 60s. I try very hard to believe that racism is for the most part a thing of the past and teach my children not to look at people and judge them by their color.

I have friends from all over the world and I LOVE it!!

How can the world today be so blind and ignorant.

I had to re-evaluate myself a little while ago, because I had met a few bad apples from the Middle East. I had heard too many negative stories.

But then I met a real devout Muslim who was respectful, funny, kind, and nothing like the things that I had heard and seen in the past. I realized that I myself had formed a stereotype of my own. Something I cant stand from others!

People are mostly good. Everyone has their flaws but thats what makes us as people so complex and interesting. People need to learn to open their minds and accept others for who they are, flaws and all, because no one can change who they are, or what they look like.

Until we can do that as a whole there will be no progress.

It always takes something really drastic and painful for people to change.

Lets hope something happens that will bring justice to the situation.

Lets hope that people learn to change and to leave their pre-civil war ideologies where they belongs.
