It’s been just over a month since we shot the commercial and photos for and I am still anxiously awaiting to see all the results from my hard work and the hard work of my new eDiets friends.  Until then, I have still been going strong, losing weight at a steady pace and I’m in my final goal weight range – yay!

I have to admit, I’m not as excited as I thought I would be – and I think that’s mostly due to the fact that the scale might be ready the right numbers for me, but my body still doesn’t look as fantastic as I thought it would be by now.  Prior to having my son, I was essentially a gym rat.  Every day after work, I went straight to the gym and put in a solid hour or so 5x/week.  This time around – it’s not so easy.  With such a long commute to work, there is very little time during the week that I get to see my son, so I often have to make the decision to either go to the gym or spend an hour with my son before he goes to bed.

Well, as much as I LOVE my gym, YouFit, I thought, I might see what else is out there.  After looking around, I found this INSANE workout called INSANITY, by Shaun T.  The basic idea is that you take an entire YEAR’s worth of workouts and condense it into TWO MONTHS!  All workouts are approximately 40 minutes and they vary every day between 14 different DVD’s.  Workouts are slated for 6 days a week and every 2 weeks you perform a “Fit Test” to see how you’re progressing. There are no weights needed – you just use your own body weight and work your ass off!  3 minutes of high intensity workout with a 30 second rest, and repeat!

I’m sure insane doesn’t even BEGIN to describe this program, but nevertheless, I’m giving it a shot!  My goal is to workout every night when my son goes down to sleep and during his nap time on the weekends.  I’ll miss you, YouFit, but I’m going to try and workout AND see my son.  I’m not going to beat myself up if I miss a day or two here as life will often get in the way, but I’m going to do it – even if it takes me 3 or 4 months instead of 2!  I’m even going to stay on the eDiets meal plan as it is very balanced between protein, carbs, and fat…I think I just may add a protein shake or additional snack each day so my body can keep up with the crazy workouts.

My first workout is 5 minutes after I publish this post – so wish me luck and I’ll keep you updated (if I’m not too sore to type)! lol

    Let me know what you think; I heard about that! 🙂

    Also, people have said they have seen the commercial on TV… I can’t figure out why we have not gotten to see anything. I have asked Tina and Stefani to update ASAP. 🙂 I’ll pass along what I hear. Have you gotten your reimbursement check… I’ve been bugging them for that too… 🙂


    Ps: hope things are good! You are doing awesome! Congrats on goal weight; don’t get hung up on the number; you look amazing. When in doubt, go look at that bikini shot again!

      Thanks chica!
      So, I spoke with TIna yesterday and she said they are running commercials in “select markets” on different stations and times to “test” it out. I’ve been seeing the last commercial a LOT lately – but not the new one, so I guess it’s not running down here yet. Cathy said her mom saw it, but I’m not sure where she lives. Don’t worry though – I’m sure you’ll be popping up on everyone’s TV in no time at all! 🙂
      And no – I haven’t gotten my check yet – thank you for reminding me!
