I have it but haven’t worked up the courage to do it.  I think right now it would kill me.

@lezlers: Yeah I just have asthma problems so I’m always afraid of making it worse.  Guess the hungry thing isn’t too bad as long as you go for the good stuff and not a whole cake!

I did it…it is rough.  The first week is the worst.  I wouldn’t try and go all out, you can’t.  You HAVE to take breaks.  I’ve done P90X 2x before doing this and was still not prepared.  I’m doing P90X again and then going back to Insanity right before the wedding.

I just started last week, its so hard. But I’m pretty out of shape lol. I think I did something to my hip or groin or something though cause it hurts every now and then. I did p90x with my Fiance and I was unimpressed with the results. I felt like it was geared towards men mostly, so I decided to try insanity.

Have you ever tried kettlebells? I did those about 6 months ago and they are a great fat burner. I lost like 13lbs in 3 weeks and I lost a lot of inches. You cant do them every day though, since they are so intense. It took me like 2 weeks to be able to get though the whole dvd. I would highly reccomend them, I used a 15lb kettlebell

@lezlers: I loveee Insanity! It definitely kills me, but I feel awesome after the fact!! I’m having issues with the diet plan though — I don’t really have the time to plan/eat so many meals, which is frustrating. I’m on my second cycle (kinda slacked off after the first one, oops!)… keep it up!! 🙂

Hey this insanity thing sounds kind of promising… it seems kind of expensive on their site for something that I may or may not use (I am awful at motivating myself).  How long are the workouts?  I just started the Shred, and I’m going to add an hour of cardio 3x week plus good eating habits… I just want to slim/tone up some, not loose a massive amount of weight or get totally scary ripped.
