I am one of those weird people who loves to exercise. However, before I attempted Insanity I thought there was no way I could get through the workouts. They are super hard and I've only ever done female push ups...I am about to embark on Month two and I have discovered a resilience in me and "super" power that I didn't know I possessed. I am really proud of my workouts.
On the other hand during this month I kept beating myself up over my inability to control what I eat. My inner child insisting on eating non-stop especially when I'm in a mood (any mood btw). The other week I posted about being positive and it's an ongoing struggle. I have decided that month 2 of Insanity will include being happy and proud of my achievements and taking the focus away from my bad eating pattern. I think that might help to break the cycle.
Whether you like to exercise or can't stand it, give yourself credit for doing it. Even though I love the feeling after my workouts it took me 2 years to get into good exercising habbits. If you are new to exercising just remember to chose the type of exercise you enjoy. It can be anything that gets you moving. The videos on Spark give great ideas. The groups also help you to see that your not alone in being unable to do all the reps or the same speed as the presenter or studio exercisers.
Remember to JUST DO IT.
Have a great and fit weekend.
