I would call this week pretty successful, up until Friday. Before I get to that, I am happy to have completed the first 4 days of INSANITY - from Monday through Thursday. I also did cardio workouts at the gym on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. On Tuesday, I also met with my trainer. And then on Thursday, I got roped in to a RIDICULOUS but very fun cardio set, which included 2 hours of zumba/cardio dance workouts followed by an hour of boot camp. I had so much fun, and it was so exhausting. So I'm happy with my workouts.
Then, Thursday night, I could not sleep. Or at least well. Even after more than 3 hours of working out (INSANITY included), I couldn't get more than hour of sleep without waking up. Most of the night, I was in bed staring at the ceiling. I've never had this problem before. So on Friday, I was too tired to even think of working out. So I had spent the day trying to focus on my work. Then, on Friday night, the same thing happened. I could not sleep. I was so frustrated. I spent most of the day on my couch trying to relax, except for when I went to dinner with a friend. So, as these things happen, my eating choices weren't as great either. So I may have had more of a loss if I hadn't went a little crazy yesterday and Friday...
Nevertheless, I'm down 2 pounds from last week and 0.5 from my waist. So I call that a success. This week, I'm not sure what my progress will look like. I am heading to my sister's home (out of state) to help her take care of my nephew this week. I don't know where I will be able to squeeze in my workouts quite yet. But I'll be tracking my food so I hope that helps. And I'm sure caring for my active 11 week old nephew will help me burn some calories. I'll be wearing my BodyMedia Fit (which I LOVE by the way) so I'll see if there is any truth to that theory.
Now, on to pictures.
