OK this is not for the weak of stomach, look away now if you have come here for cards, layouts or crafts of any sort.
As you are all now aware now,
Neil and I have been doing the Insanity home workout programme, here are my before and after shots
Please bear in mind, this is over just 60 days, we did NOT diet, we ate and drank what we liked as Christmas, New Year, birthdays and various other celebrations peppered our path
The befores are on the left
We never ever missed a workout, even donned our trainers on Christmas day
Not quite a six pack but definitely a lot slimmer and more toned than before
And for the changes on the tape measure
1cm off each arm
8cm off my bust
10cm off stomach
4cm off my hips
2cm off each thigh
1cm off each calf
I lost 6lbs in weight, not bad considering how much I ate and drank over the period, had I stuck to the Insanity diet I have no doubt I could easily have doubled my fat loss, but you know what, I am happy with my loss, it means I lost no muscle but lost lots of inches.
Another thing I noticed was a massive increase in strength and endurance.
I know some people will probably not see much of a difference, some people might even laugh at me for posting this, and to be honest I worried about it.
I pondered long and hard. It is a big thing sharing these photos.
I have had a little encouragement, mainly from Neil, the kids ( who think I am awesome for even trying it) and one of my facebook friends who is doing the same programme and one of my class members who has also seen the programme and her husband and son tried it.
But generally most people have been fairly non-plussed and that is fine.
I didn't do it for anyone else.
I did it for me.
Neil summed it up when I asked whether I should blog it, when he said 'You did good! You should be proud, I am so proud of you ! - You should blog it, it is an achievement and those that don't like it don't matter'
