Insanity Apocalypse

I'll start off by saying that I'm feeling better today... and by that I mean my outlook isn't as crappy as yesterday. I want to say thank you to all of you who sent kind words of encouragement and support. It truly means a lot, and I needed it.... now on to the good stuff!

Something I haven't mentioned to a whole lot of people is that I've signed up to do an Insanity challenge. And I don't mean a challenge to see how insane I can be, because Lord knows I'm way past that already. I'm taking about the super intense 60-day workout program from BeachBody. This thing is definitely insane, I'm talking cuh-ray-zee! My good friend Andria has been working really hard on leading a healthier lifestyle for herself and her family. Part of that journey has lead her to become a BeachBody coach. So she nagged a bunch of us until we agreed to pay a ridiculous amount of money for this program so that we can all start our journeys together. And though I know it's going to be really hard and I'll be really sore and I'll probably want to give up a million times... I'm actually pretty excited about it. I'm hoping that having several friends going through it at the same time will keep me motivated. We start on Feb 10th. My boss also happens to be coming in town from Virginia that same week, so I'm thinking it will serve as a pretty good stress reliever as well. Mine came in the mail yesterday. I haven't read all the information yet, but here it is!

Now... I'm not a runner. Allow me to explain... I. Don't. Run. I've tried to run lots of times. I even have photographic proof of this (some good, some bad, some extremely embarrassing). It just never works out. So, what makes me think that running with zombies chasing me would be a good idea? Well.... zombies, duh.  I have seen advertisements in the past about zombie runs and I've always thought it would be so much fun. I've even complained about not having any close enough. Well wouldn't you know, the day I'm trying to re-motivate myself, a new event shows up on my Facebook feed. A zombie run HERE in Pensacola, literally minutes from my house....I don't believe in signs y'all, but that's a sign . Who's with me?! Let's do this.

Weigh In: Yeeeah. Still haven't done that yet.

  1. How far is this run? I feel that at done point mind over body will die and the zombies will get me. Id consider insanity but I can't do it at home, I no me time and room. I'd have to do it at the gym or another place:/ I am doing ww at work though again. Gotta lose the 10 I gained back. By now it's prob 12. Boo.
