Fit Friday: Insanity Workout

Hey guys!
So recently I started doing the Insanity Workout, and I thought it would be fun to start a "Fit Friday" series and share my progress! It's a 60 (63 to be exact) day fitness program that is true to it's name - it is, in fact, insane!! Today marked the last day of the first week, and oh my gosh did it kick my butt. I thought I was in shape since I do swim and have only recently stopped since the school season is over, but in these workouts you use completely different muscles, so I've been pretty sore haha. And I'm not used to working out on the land, as crazy as that sounds! Honestly it's so much different working out in the water rather than land - I don't know what it is. 
But since the school season of swim is over I wanted to do something physical to stay in shape and get more toned, so I thought the Insanity program would be perfect. Although it's extremely hard, I feel so great after the workouts! I love the feeling after a really good workout, and these are definitely great. Even though my body is super sore, I am so happy! I actually love being sore because it means your body is working hard and changing for the better!
The first day was a Fit Test, so I (naively) was feeling pretty good about the fact that I wasn't covered in sweat and could still walk afterwards. However, the second day was a different story! My heart was really beating, and I was sweating and breathing like crazy during the workout! Afterwards, I could barely walk up the stairs haha my legs felt like jell-o! The workouts haven't gotten easier per se, just more manageable, if that makes sense. During the day, though, I've had a lot of energy despite the fact that I'm super sore! I'm so excited to see how great I'll feel after the full 63 days.  Tomorrow is my rest day so I'm definitely looking forward to that!
The program is six days of workouts and one day of rest, so it may seem like a lot, but going through it day by day is easier than it sounds. You fall into a routine with the workouts, for example I do them when I get home from school in the afternoons, take a shower, and do my homework. The workouts fit in perfectly! 
I'm so excited to continue with this program, and I'll keep you guys updated! Haha hopefully this isn't too boring to read, but I thought it would be fun to share with you all since it's become a pretty big part of my life!

Thank you so much for reading, and have a great day! (:
