The Curse of Shaun T’s Insanity…

I’ve been hexed.

I’ll be the first to admit I’m not really “in to” exercise – you only get an arse like this from sitting on it – but believe it or not I used to dance…



I stopped before my last year of school because of my A Levels and not being able to have the time off to go to competitions, and instead taught and choreographed at my local youth stage school. Aside from that I’ve done no exercise at all for the past 12 months.

On a day to day basis, I could pass as the human embodiment of a sloth, but when it comes to getting fit I’m an all in kind of person. It’s a side effect of being on top form for the first 16 years of your life.

So of course I chose Insanity, which if you didn’t know is a hardcore exercise DVD which features Shaun T, a renowned fitness trainer.

I have never made it past the first 2 weeks.

The first time I started getting insanely (he he) lethargic and ended up in bed for 10 days with flu.

The second time my stomach started hurting. I thought it was from the exercise…

…I had my appendix out a week later.

The third time I got shin splints in both legs and irritated my eight times dislocated patella so much I could barely walk.

I think it’s a sign. My life is destined to be me sitting on the internet and eating crisps.

Maybe I shouldn’t have signed up for those university cheerleading sessions…

P.S. It was the before and after pictures that sucked me in…apparently you have to exercise for 2 months for those…no chance. I’m more of a *does exercise* *sleeps* *wakes up* *am I thin yet?* kinda gal.
