Unfortunately, work and busy–ness got in the way of an end of an Insanity, Week 2, blog post.
By the time I had written something up, I was halfway through Week 3. I figured I would roll both weeks together, since they were much the same, in terms of effort, result, and slog.
The initial excitement of the first week has definitely died down, As the reality set in, that there is another eight weeks of daily hard exercise to go (with only Sundays for a rest).
Similarly the healthy eating, while still attainable, becomes more difficult as old delicious habits, chips, fizzy juice, chocolate, crisps, snacks, etc. are in the back of my mind shouting “hello remember me?”
I managed all of Week 2, and came away with 2½ lbs weight loss. Not as good as Week One, but it’s not always about the weight loss of course. I have been too scared to we measure myself to see if I have lost any inches.
I had my second fitness test at the end of Week 2, so I updated my chart. Slight improvement overall.
There are 8 exercises, for each you have 60 seconds to do as many reps as possible, with only a 30 second break between each exercise.

I finished Week 3 at the weekend, the weigh in was today (Monday). Week 3, I managed to shift a cracking 3½ lbs (even with that trip to Burger King).
I am incredibly happy with that, and added to the first two weeks now makes the total, 10 lbs gone.
Onwards with week 4, and training for Bay to Breakers starts this week. Ruh roh.
