Update on my Insanity Workout routine!!!

Tuesday, September 07, 2010

Thanks so much for all your suggestions in my last blog. Fortunately, I did find a place to start doing my Insanity Workouts again (BIG YAY!!! lol.)! We do have a conference room in our dormitory, and it has closed double doors (but tons of windows, but I have no problem with that), so I was thankful for that since I didn't wanna do it in the main lobby wear anybody could walk in and look at me like I was some sort of sweating maniac (but when you do Insanity, you kinda are, right??? lol). Since I've missed two weeks of Insanity, I'm re-doing weeks 4 &5 to re-build my speed and endurance for the workout again. I hate that I'm having to re-do the weeks, but it's needed, and it could only help me, and not hurt me. I'm probably gonna head to my gym on campus later on, towards the end of the day, and get on the treadmill for about thirty minutes. I paid enough to use it, so I'm definitely going to be in there frequently; maybe go for a swim every now and then to switch up the routine. And I know for some people, they might think that it isn't that serious to finish this sort of program, but it is to me. When you find something that you can stick with, you need to finish. I felt really annoyed with myself when I thought I couldn't complete this program, and now, because I didn't give up, I'm going to. Thanks everyone for the ideas and advice. Your awesome. peace.

I'm absolutely frustrated. I've missed two weeks of the Insanity Workout because of college.

Friday, September 03, 2010

You know how you know you're committed to something? When you're mad when you can't complete it. I can't complete my Insanity Workout Program because I simply have no place to work out. It's very hard for me to except not being able to finish this. I'm trying really hard to think of a way to do it. Maybe I could take my laptop to the park, and do it outside (lol)??? But I know that will put me in danger of getting my things stolen from me, and I don't want that to happen, no matter how safe a place might be. I try to workout at the gym on campus, but that's kinda hard for me. It's like when I'm on that treadmill, I feel like I should be doing more. I crave the intensity that I found with Insanity. This really disappoints me, because I only had four more weeks left. Maybe I can find a way around this. Thank you guys for all your past support. I will try to stay committed to some type of exercise routine. It's just hard when your focus and commitment was into such an awesome program. peace.

    well, i would love to use my dorm, but i don't have enough room in my dorm. there's no room to move athletically at all in that room. there might be some group exercise areas available, but im not sure of that. i'll check into it though. i appreciate you all's input!

    Does your gym have a group exercise area? Maybe you could take your laptop in there when there is not a class going on. I'm guessing you're in a dorm... If so, maybe you can do it when your roommate has class -- or get your roommate to do it too.

    I randomly came across this blog and can feel your pain! Are you in a dorm? Can you use a study room or conference room for your workouts? Or even a room in your student center?

Day 30 of Insanity Workout: Heartaches and Perseverance.

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

I'm in my recovery week of Insanity. I finished my second day of it and it was fine. Later on in the day I had to go through an emotional breakdown. It really hurts, but I'm gonna try not to slack this week because of it. I'm good at persevering for the most part. Even though it's gonna be hard with what I'm going through emotionally right now. Anyways, if anyone else is going through what I'm going through, please do not relapse to eating unhealthy things, or slacking on your workouts. I will try to heed my own advice as well. Peace.

    (((Hugs))) I'm a big emotional eater, but I've also found that taking a slow walk outside can also help me work through the chaos in my mind when I'm having a really hard time. Talking is another thing that's helpful, but I personally have to do something or write something - else I'll eat.

Good luck to you, and great job for even trying for those workouts, they truly are insane. :-)

A good day with eating and watching how much I eat. Day 25 of Insanity Workout.

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Today, was a great day for me eating wise. I was able to eat today without over-eating. Even though my problem is not with over-eating as much as it is drinking calories instead of eating them. I bought Crystal Light today, and I think that that helped a lot with my drinking habits. I've learned that I'm more attracted to the taste of what I drink, rather than feeling dehydrated or thirsty. With Crystal Light, I'm able to solve both problems without taking in too many calories, which is great for me since today was my cardio recovery day, and I probably don't need as many calories on that day, as I would with the other days on the high impact workouts. And I'm sooo excited that I am almost done with week 4 of insanity!!! That would be considered a month on the calendar, and I can't believe I've made it this far! I'm very excited, because now I get to move on to some new dvds! Even though it's gonna be tougher, I'm gonna push through it until I finish the whole program. Oh, and my new weight is 159.8. Whoo hoo! It took long enough, lol. I 'm sooo happy to be out of the 160s, even if it's only slightly. I'm hoping to be down to a complete 159 by the end of this week. Thanks for everyone that's keeping up with me, and for those who started these workouts around the same time as me: don't give up, and I'll see you at the finish line!!!

    Congratulations on sticking with Insanity. I haven't started but my daughter has and she mentions passionately how challenging it is. Keep up the good work.

A Confessional: My eating is out of control.

Sunday, August 08, 2010

Here is something about me that has always made it hard for me to lose weight. Food. I really don't understand why. Now, it's never been to the point I've gotten obese. The highest weight I've ever been is 177, and I felt like that was ridiculous. It only to took me to get just slightly overweight to realize that this wasn't the life I wanted to lead. My ultimate goal is to get to the 140s. If I can get under that, that would be great. The only thing that's holding me back is my eating habits. I can exercise everyday and stick with it, but it's so hard for me to not eat junk food. It's especially hard for me not to drink my calories, which I do a lot of. I don't drink sodas, but sometimes I can drink too much tea or juices that are high in sugar, and that's what gets me in trouble. It's very hard for me to stay on a healthy eating regimen because I'm a college student and sometimes I can't buy the most healthiest foods. Another thing I hate is drinking water. lol. I don't like to drink water unless it's while I'm working out. I think with the money I do have, I'm gonna go buy some crystal light packs to put in my water can at times, so I won't be so tempted to drink those sugary juices all the time. I really hate that I'm struggling with this eating thing, and there's so much more I could say right now, but I'll share it on another blog. I just don't wanna hold myself back from my potential. Me confessing this really makes me wanna do better, and I wanna try harder. Thanks for the support along the way, it's been really helpful. Can't wait to start Insanity later on today. I'm ready for the challenge. I think this is the longest I've ever stuck with a DVD program, so I'm excited to get ready to complete my fourth week. Hopefully this will be a better week for me eating wise as well. Much love.

    I'm really having a hard time at night eating myself. Crystal light drink packets really help me get all my water in. They make me crave more sugary things sometimes though eeek. Diet sodas are way worse though. You can do it! Good luck in your journey and I can't wait to read about your success.

    Sorry to hear your having difficult with your eating- track your food.. Mimic the structure of sparks meals, make food taste great and smell great. I weigh and measure my food to avoid eating too much and too little. Also keep within your calories sparks sets for you, use them like a speeder in a car. Slow day no activity low end of the range, heavy exercise day eat to the middle and top end..
Also make your choices lean, the body can better burn off excess calories if they are not top heavy in sugar and fat..
