Sometimes I get in great workouts without realizing I'm exercising. Some of my favorites are:
Just last night I went bowling for 2 1/2 hours with a 10 pound ball.
A couple of weeks ago I took my nephew out rollerskating for a few hours. Talk about a thigh workout!
What are some things you like to do, that is fun, so you sometimes forget to count it as exercise?

One thing I've found that motivates me when I REALLY don't want to work out is watching a workout video on youtube. (My current favorite is Blogilates with Cassey Ho). Usually within the first 5 or 10 minutes, I'll restart the video and actually do the workout.
Why does this work for me? Seeing people who are stronger, more fit, and have a better body reminds me why I want to do this. Seeing what they do to achieve this makes me want to do it too. It gets me out of my lazy mood, and before you know it, 4 or 5 videos and one hour later has gone by!

Call me crazy, but I have already been adding in extra exercises, to compliment Insanity. I have always wanted to be a runner, though. With my tax return, this Friday, I'm going to get fitted for brand new running shoes. Since I won't be able to do Insanity at the hotel we'll be staying at (no dvd player in the gym, and can't jump around on an upper floor), I will start the C25K program. I'm looking forward to doing both that, and Insanity. Hopefully, my lungs adjust to all the cardio!
For now, I seem to have caught a cold. I'm taking a few days off from my fitness to try to get better. Manda's wedding is this weekend, and it's imperative that I feel my best! I plan on having too much fun to worry about taking it easy. =D

Greg broke up with me Tuesday. The last time I was broken up with was in high school. I weighed 130 pounds (Same weight that I am now). My way of coping is to make myself better. I worked out and ate really well. I was extremely health conscious. I got down to 118 pounds, and a size 4. I still had a bit of fat to burn and muscle to build, but I felt great. This is why I made my goal weight 115. Now that Greg is gone, I have the same mentality. My focus is going to be me, and my health.
On a good note, as happy as I was with Greg, I certainly knew he was not the one. I know that he's out there somewhere. I'll keep working on myself, and I'm sure whoever he is will come around.
It looks like I might be moving into a house with a couple of my guy friends. They're awesome, and not mutual friends of Greg and I (no awkward moments inside of my own home). There's a pool (swimming is my favorite sport). One of the guys is all about fitness, so we will help keep each other motivated. I ate dinner with them last night and we made chili and fruit kebobs. Very healthy. I'm hoping that it all works out.
2011: Looks like a lot is going to change... For the better.
