I started on 10/1...I did the the Monday thru Friday workouts...but I did a power hike up a mountain on Saturday instead of the ab work out. I was sweating just the same. I start week two tomorrow. I find the workouts boring and repetitive...anyone else feel the same?
yes it is a bit boring sometimes but it works

Bad news ladies, my doctor advices my to stop doing insanity, she said its too soon after giving birth it's been 8 weeks now and while I'm breast feeding my hormones still messing around so my joints can't get back to pre pregnancy strength, that's why it's sore and this morning I woke up with sore ankles too ............. What's next ? I really need to give a rest joints are so much more important then weight loss now. I was so sad when she told stop it and start insanity later when I'm back to my normal.... It was hard to start it at first , and when I done two weeks give up , I wanna cry .

Oh no. Don't feel like a failure for stopping right now. It's very important to listen to your doctor's advice. Did s/he say when you were able to start up again.

When my first daughter was two months old I started a Learn to Run program offerred by the Running Room. Are you able to run or do you need to stop all exercise?

She said stop high impac exercise, I will give a rest for a week then slowly do cross trainer and when I feel it's ok no more pain will go back to insanity

Wow well done, there are some great improvements there. I'll post mine tomorrow, sadly they're not as impressive as yours!

I struggled with the fit test as I am still getting over this infection but I managed to get through it.

Doing the Fit Test tonight.

I don't think there is enough strength training in Insanity (but I don't think there is enough cardio in P90X and I don't really like the P90X trainer!) so I have tweaked the Insanity programme to incorporate 2 weight sessions per week and I place my rest day in line with my Wednesday yoga class.

Exciting times!

Wowza! That is amazing. Just be safe because of your doctors instructions. Stop for a few days if you need to.

Day 16 down. Felt like I was not performing at top capacity today, like maybe I could have pushed a little harder today. I think my stretches are getting a little deeper so that is a plus.
