I'm a newbie and was soooooooo excited to this challenge.
This will be my 2nd try at the insanity program. I gave up after 4 weeks last year Sad... This time, I will definitly finish it and no holiday will stop me from finishing and getting some awesome results.
I've also started doing the "crack the fat loss code" woe, so the combo will help in losing some serious fat all around Smile

GREAT LUCK TO ALL OF US!!!

Hi Jake! I'm a little worried about not being able to finish as well but that's why I created this challenge. We can get on here to support each other through the process and share our progress and questions and answers. I've never heard of "crack the fat loss code". Will have to look it up now. Welcome and good luck to you!

Thank you for your support! It really means a lot!
I started off the first day with 15 min., the 2nd day with 20 min., and yesterday, I did 30 min. Sad
I know I should have finished the video, but I just so tired.
I will definitely try to finish it tonight (fingers crossed Wink

"crack the fat loss code" is a really good book by Wendy Chant and it explains how to train the body to burn fat for fuel instead of carbs. The first week is very restrictive, but there after, it is basically carb cycling for fat loss - so you have low and high carb days to trick your body and break plateaus... Hope it helps, as I'm in dire need of losing the fat inches Wink

That's a great way to ease yourself into it. Better then doing no workout at all right?! You will get through today. It's Cardio Recovery so a much slower speed. Still challenging though but don't give up. I stop all the time but I get right back into it as soon as I've caught my breath.
Very interesting diet. I need to try something new cuz this meal plan that came with Insanity is already getting old. Probably because I am so picky and they have limited choices.
