End of Insanity by Ed

@ Corte Madera

(I finished Insanity 3 weeks now but wanted to wait a little while to contemplate what happened. I have now contemplated so here we are…)

So I made it, I got to the end. Two more weeks of kickass, tough exercise. Two more weeks of silly Insanity Beard.

Fitness test results are below. Suffice to say I improved in all of the exercises so I am very happy with that. The three important facts are however:

  1. I am a lot fitter than I was before. Running and playing with the kids is not a chore anymore.
  2. I am eating a LOT healthier than before and intend to keep it up.
  3. I lost 22 lbs (approximately 1½ stone) in 9 weeks and intend to keep it off. Being fat isn’t fun.

Oh, I also had a haircut and a shave:

Time for a well deserved rest before deciding on my next move. I can finally have a long lie till 6:15am again.
