I've had my share of lame failed attempts of going to the gym. The best shape I've ever been was when I worked a job that kept me moving all the time. Now I love my current job and am excited about the path I'm taking there, but all this sitting down has been killing me. I sit down at work, walk home and sit down some more. There's a lot of beer and laziness involved, but I digress. I knew I was horribly out of shape, but doing the Insanity "fit test" has put into perspective just how horribly out of shape I am! One of my coworkers has been doing Insanity, and it piqued my interest. Feels good to be sore from working out, but I hardly did anything. I was pretty dead after the first few exercises. Tomorrow I will try the plyometric or whatever it's called. What do people do after Insanity? I mean, I'm sure plenty of progress can be made with it, as it's pretty intense - but what do you guys do to keep in top shape after insanity? Do you combine insanity with another workout routine, or do you keep doing insanity over and over? Or do you move on to something else like Insanity? So far it's pretty fun, more fun than just running on a treadmill IMO. I appreciate that there is a stretching session, warm up, and another stretching session at the end. It seems the variety of workouts do a fairly good job of getting various muscle groups. I've been thinking about what to do about food. I know that eating habits can impact fitness at least as much as exercise, so I have no choice there. Most days I don't bother eating breakfast, and only end up eating lunch 8+ hours after waking up. I often eat dinner only an hour or so before sleeping, probably not a good thing. This morning (and by morning, I mean 3pm) I made my sis and I a big breakfast with eggs, bacon, croissant and a few types of cheese, some good coffee and I started insanity roughly an hour after that. What are some good/easy ways to eat properly, keeping Insanity in mind? I'm not as interested in using special products for working out, as optimizing my eating habits with good food that make sense for the activity I'm doing. I burped a lot and felt a bit like puking towards the end and got a pretty bad headache for about a half hour or so. I drank some water, and the headache went away. Tonight I am sore in my left calf, and I feel it a bit in my back and neck/shoulders. I felt it in my lower abs a bit earlier, but that seems to have went away. Any tips, suggestions, criticism, etc are all more than welcome. Excited to start day 2 tomorrow. I know it can take a long time to see serious results, but I'm really curious to see just what happens over the next month or two. Edit: forgot to mention I am a 28 year old male, 6'1 and if I had to guess, I weigh around 210lbs but I haven't weighed myself in a long time. Last time I weighed myself I was around 190, and it's been a long time and I just keep getting fatter, so I assume I'm around there. Most people seem to think I'm skinny cause I'm tall, but I can no longer see my abs. They're buried under a fair bit of flab. I don't like it.
