Almost 2 months of Insanity - Still only 30 days on the work out

Posted by Ninja Space Content on Thursday, August 2, 2012
I've been doing Insanity for almost 2 months now and have only been able to do it 3-4 days a week. With working 40 hours a week, being married and owning a dog, I somehow find it hard to fit in a 6 day work out. Nonetheless, I know I am getting leaner. The thing is, I have lost 0 lbs. I'm a bit unmotivated but I know I am looking better so I'll continue to do it as much as I can, whenever I can. Working out is better than not working out at all.

I've read online somewhere that when you start a new work out that is intense, you start to retain water weight. For some people, it could take up to 2 months. I think I am one of those. All of my life, I've always done lighter cardio work outs like jogging and rollerblading. Since this is focusing more on strengthening my core, my muscles are probably still not used to being worked out like this. I sweat like crazy every time I do Insanity so something has to be working.

I'm going to hang in there and I encourage you all to hang in there too because you can't give up! I'll be starting on my last 30 days soon (at my rate, it means it'll take me 2 months to finish the last 30 days) and I know it's going to get harder.

After your body gets used to your work out routine, you'll lose the water weight and see the true loss in time. Keep it up.
