Since all my aspirations of  losing weight in 2012 are slowly dying a sad death, I’ve decided that 2013 will be The Year of Transformation for me. I want to be down 50 pounds by December 31, 2013 – completely doable, but it will take some serious work. It might even take something drastic, something possibly even…INSANE.

Muahahahahaha! *wrings hands manically*


I’ve been toying with the idea of doing the Beachbody Insanity videos in January (because isn’t there some law that says you have to start a serious work out regimen in January?), but since I’ve never even done P90, P90X, or any kind of workout that starts with a letter and ends in a number, I wonder if I’m getting in over my head. I’ve heard that it’s pretty fast paced, but that it only uses the same 10 moves over and over again. I’ve heard it’s hardcore, but I can always modify it to meet my needs. A lot of the reviews I’ve read talked about how hard it is on the joints – that kind of scares me. I like the fact that the work outs are short-ish (30-45 minutes each) and that the only equipment you need is your own body. I just wonder if it’s the kind of thing that will piss me off because it’s so fast and furious – will I get discouraged and end up not doing it at all?

Have any of you done the Insanity workout? Do you have an opinion on it that you want to share? I can’t seem to make a  decision on this – someone tell me what to do!!
