Final Fit Test: Revenge Is Sweet!

I did it! I completed Insanity! *cue noise makers, balloons and confetti! I barely made it through the Max month and I just completed my final Fit Test of the 63 day program. I’m a little tired and would like to drink my recovery drink so I’ll just get to it…

Here are the results:


Overall here are my improvements since the first fit test:

Switch Kicks:     +11
Power Jacks:     +14
Power Knees:    +33
Power Jumps:    +10
Globe Jumps:       +1
Suicide Jumps:  +6
Push-Up Jacks: +13
Low Plank Obliques: +7
I am so happy that I was able to complete all 63 days of this program. As some of you know, I attempted it back in April of this year and had to drop out after week one. My herniated discs just could handle it so with my tail between my legs and pride broken, I went back to do a second round of P90X and then I went on to ChaLEAN Extreme.

While I was doing ChaLEAN, my coach mentioned he was starting a second round of Insanity…with those words, my itch for revenge began to surface. I started thinking about it non stop and finally found a partner to start with a few weeks later since I couldn’t start with him.

Before I knew it we grew into the most amazing group of dedicated people. Without even trying, the #insanecrew was born. Without them, I don’t know if I would have kept going when I hit the Max month. (Don’t believe Shaun T at the end of  Pure Cardio when he says “That shits bananas yo” cause that’s a cake walk compared to Max month).

Next up is the “90 Days to a Better You” challenge which I have blogged about. If you haven’t checked it out please take a moment to now. We are starting tomorrow and would love for you to join us!

Special thanks to the #insanecrew: @tmgrant7, @perkinsmichael, @Socee808, @MrThomas619, my husband Mike who was my workout partner at home, @Melysa_S who had to go back to month 1, but is still rockin’ it and will soon taste the sweetness of revenge, @graveidea who gave me the nutrition advice I needed, when I needed it and last but not least, my coach, @Adamsfit who “lied” to us about just how hard Max month would be, but was the one responsible for lighting the fire under my ass and making me want to seek revenge, without even knowing it.

Why Yes, It’s ANOTHER Fit Test!

Fit Test #4 is officially in the books, which means there are only two more weeks of this Insanity madness left! YES!!!!

Month 2 has proven to be a mental uphill battle for me. I can hack most of it physically but mentally, I look at that clock, see 60 mins and I immediately tell myself I can’t do this. I know! I know! I just blogged about how Insanity is 90% mental 10% physical. I know what I have to do, I just need to regroup and get back into my groove. Only 2 weeks to go….no time for quitting now!

Well, here are the numbers for this Fit Test…some are better, some are the same and well, some dropped…I’m only human.


Here is a link to the third Fit Test Results if you missed them.

Overall here are my improvements since the first fit test:

Switch Kicks:     +9
Power Jacks:     +12
Power Knees:    +32
Power Jumps:    +9
Globe Jumps:       +1
Suicide Jumps:  +4
Push-Up Jacks: +12
Low Plank Obliques: +6

I shot my load this time on the Power Jumps, so as usually the second half of the Fit Test suffered. Globe Jumps remain my nemesis and my number stayed the same as 2 weeks ago. I increased on all of my numbers except for Low Plank Obliques, I dropped by 2 this time but I’m ok with that as I set the bar high with those on Fit Test 2 and have struggled to match or beat that number since.

This past week I also hit the Fitness Trail, which is something I haven’t done in quite some time. I really noticed an improvement in my cardio there. I didn’t get winded at all and if it wasn’t for my bleeding toe I probably could have kept on going.

I look forward to the next 2 weeks with my #insanecrew and I really look forward to planning out a hybrid with them!

Keep digging deep, pressing play and pushing yourself to the next fitness level.

It’s Fit Test Time!


Happy Halloween boys and girls! I started my day off with a trick that turned out to be a treat. See, today should have been my rest day with INSANITY, (this is the trick part), but I did decided along with a few others in the #insanecrew to do the fit test today, since we have our first Max workout tomorrow. I psyched myself up to expect some lower numbers since my back has been a little “iffy” on power jumps and I was just not really in the mood to workout this morning. It was a rough workout and it left me gasping for air during most of it but I was pleasantly surprised with my numbers (this is the treat part, in case you were wondering).

Enough of my rambling, you just want the numbers….I get it!

Here is a link to the second Fit Test Results if you missed them.

Overall here are my improvements since the first fit test:

Switch Kicks:     +6
Power Jacks:     +8
Power Knees:    +31
Power Jumps:    +6
Globe Jumps:       +1
Suicide Jumps:  +3
Push-Up Jacks: +10
Low Plank Obliques: +8

I am truly shocked as to how far I’ve come in such a short amount of time. I might conduct a test on a rest day to see if I can do more Globe Jumps, Suicide Jumps and Push-Up Jacks if do them right after the warm-up. I’m pretty sure I can and it’s just that I’m so tired from the Switch Kicks and Power Jacks to give it my complete all.

Hope everyone has a Spooktacular Halloween! If you need me, I’ll be in the pumpkin patch with my blankie waiting for The Great Pumpkin!

and the results are…..


Believe it or not 2 weeks of INSANITY are in the books, which means that this morning was Fit Test #2. I pushed myself really hard because I had to beat my own numbers from the first test. I was quite successful in doing that with all of the moves except for those dreaded Globe Jumps. They are hands down my least favorite along with Power Jumps….pure evil!

So, here is what you really came here to see…..The Results of Fit Test #2:

Here is a link to my First Fit Test Results if you missed them.

Overall here are my improvements:

Switch Kicks:     +5
Power Jacks:     +6
Power Knees:    +18
Power Jumps:    +4
Globe Jumps:       0
Suicide Jumps:  +2
Push-Up Jacks: +7
Low Plank Obliques: +6

I’m very pleased with my improvement in only 2 short weeks. I was a little upset during Low Plank Obliques because my arms became tired before my legs or obliques did and I could have went longer. Also Power Jumps followed by Globe Jumps are just sheer torture. I know I could do more Suicide Jumps if I wasn’t coming right off the previous two.

Here to another 2 weeks of digging deep, cause this sh*ts bananas yo!
