Insanity - Fitness test update PIP!

Last week wasn't the best week. I skipped three days of Insanity but added a day of hiking. I was so sore from hiking that I missed yesterday's Insanity workout. Which means today was the fitness test. It was supposed to be the fitness test then an hour workout. WHAT?! That wasn't happening (I'd have to get up at 4:30!) so I just did the fit test today and will spread the rest of the workouts out over a few extra days.

So, here are the results of the fitness test. Today's numbers first, followed by original, and week 3 numbers:

Switch kicks: 122 (101, 103)
Power Jacks: 53 (35, 47)
Power knees: 100 (84, 94)
Power jumps: 39 (25, 35)
Globe jumps: 11.75 (7, 10)
Suicide jumps: 15 (11, 14)
Push-up jacks: 26 (15, 23)
Low plank oblique: 68 (46, 62)

And now, for pictures... 
Before:

Week 3, Day 5


Today - Week 6, Day 1


I have lost zero pounds but have to imagine I've lost some fat (mainly boobs Frown) and gained some muscle! Tomorrow the one-hour long workouts begin. Ack.

    Just because you haven't shown a loss on the scale doesn't mean you haven't seen results! Just look at your abs!!! Have you been taking measurements? I bet you've lost inches even though you're not loosing pounds...

    BTW - your bathroom wall color and granite are gorgeous!

    I did take measurements but they don't make much sense. My thighs got bigger, which I get, because I have a lot more muscle. But I can't figure out my chest measurement. It either went UP by an inch, or down by 3 inches, depending on if I measured around the ladies or just under. Meanwhile, my ladies DEF got smaller. 

    My hips went down almost an inch, but my waist went up 1.5 inches. WTH?

    I'm consoling myself with the fact that I can actually see abs. I bet these 1 hour workouts will start melting off some of that fat! (It would probably help if I laid off the burgers and pizza, too).

    ETA: My clothes are fitting normally. Back in January, I thought I was going to start having to buy new clothes because I'd gone up a size, but I'm back to normal now!

    I have to agree with Allusive about losing inches. Did you take your measurements when you started? How are your clothes fitting?

    Based on your fitness numbers, you are doing great!

    I wouldn't stress about the numbers Tiger...they're just numbers. Like Hazel said....are you're clothes fitting better? They ARE! Do you feel stronger? You DO! Are you able to do more reps? You CAN! You're achievements are endless....and it's probably making you feel GREAT too!

    I'm borrowing a tactic from Lunar here:

    TIGER IS AWESOME! TIGER IS AWESOME! TIGER IS AWESOME! TIGER IS AWESOME! TIGER IS AWESOME! TIGER IS AWESOME! TIGER IS AWESOME! TIGER IS AWESOME! TIGER IS AWESOME! TIGER IS AWESOME! TIGER IS AWESOME!
