"Even the Sparrow Knows:
Trusting your Savior with a Troubled Heart"

Weighing in with Him & Shawn T


And this week, there was much liquid awesome.  And I don’t think I like that phrase “liquid awesome.”
It just grosses me out.
This week was CRAZY!!!!

Don’t you love that picture and the fact that I censored it? 🙂 
So here is how this is gonna work.  I have decided to stop doing weekly weigh in’s as I am within 10 lbs of my goal weight and it takes more time to lose those last 10 lbs.  I don’t want to bore you with a 0.2 loss 😉  However, on the weeks of the Insanity Fit Test, we will do pictures, measurements, weights-the whole
sh-bang.  Let’s get on with it then!
Insanity starting weight: 126.8 lbs (loss of 0.4 lbs from last week!)
Measurements: (Last measurements taken in Mid December)
Left Arm: 11″
Right Arm: 11 1/4″
Chest: 37″ (loss of 1 1/2″!!!)
Waist: 35 1/2″ (loss of 1″!!)
Hips: 36″ 
Right upper thigh: 21″    Left upper thigh: 21″
Left lower thigh: 17 1/4″   Left lower thigh: 17″
*Number represents how many reps achieved in 1 minute*
Switch Kicks- 50
Power Jacks- 40
Power Knees- 70
Power Jumps- 30
Globe Jumps- 8 (4 Jumps=1 rep)
Suicide Jumps- 10 (very similar to a burpee)
Push up Jacks- 10
Low Plank Oblique- 50

And I present to you : The Hubs.
The hubby is such a good sport and has allowed me to post his pictures.  Our conversation went as follows:

Me: Can I post your pictures on the blog?  You’ve made so much progress and its awesome to document it!  I’ve done it…all the cool kids are doing it 😉
Hubby:  Ya. Go ahead.  Show them my grossness.
Me: You are not gross!
Hubby: Umm, I’m still gross.  Just less gross.
I don’t think he is gross at all!  I am so proud of him and I think he is amazing.  I think its wonderful that he is allowing the pictures to be posted.  And I think its even more wonderful that he has done his before pictures shirtless, because we will really be able to see those lbs melt away!   I mean, look at that drastic change from 280 to 253! So proud of you baby!

I’m not proud of my before pictures either. 😉  I don’t think anyone ever is.  But the great thing about before pictures is that in the next couple months, we will look back at these pictures and be amazed at the progress we have made!

I am sooooo thankful that we are in this together.  Seriously, Best.husband.Ever!

  1. LOVE IT! Definitely laughing WITH you! Congrats to you both on the progress! Every workout with my trainer feels like a near death experience. The man is a slave driver – but I do see results so I keep going back 🙂

  2. OMGOSH!!! You guys are so cute! You have inspired me to want to give it a try. I think I will post on fb to see if I can borrow it from a friend. Thanks and good luck, I will be praying for strength and endurance for you both until next week.

  3. Oh my goodness, you guys are too stinking cute!!! Hilarious! You remind me exactly of my husband and me-nothing like a good time poking fun at each other. Your hubby looks GREAT-seriously!!! All my workouts make me feel like I am going to die-and you're right, the cool down is the best part!

    • LOL! Thanks! We do enjoy poking fun at each other!

      When I am working out, I keep telling myself “the cool down is coming!” I never enjoyed stretching as much as I do now lol. It feels sooooo good after these insane workouts!
