I wanted to blog that I started the Insanity 60 day workouts. It is tough but thanks to Jillian it is doable (sort of at a much slower pace). I am so excited about still being fit despite the extra pounds I piled on in the last year. I see it as a long learning curve.

Just found a great EFT video to try and deal with cravings. I honestly went from 8 to 0 in 3 tapping sessions.

I liked the end of the session even though I think this is too good to be true...try it.

I am kind of doing my own thing combining different ways of eating that work for me. I eat clean most of the time and I'm eating 3 meals and 2 snacks instead of fasting for most of the day and alternating between proper eating, starving and binging.

I have to stop dieting and start changing the way I think about food. I need to learn to eat like a skinny person.

Food is not love, food does not solve issues. My scale does not determine who I am and how much stress I have.

Back to Insanity...started talking about it with the guys at work and they didn't believe me that I was able to do any of the workouts...ha ha...that puts me in the category of "serious" exercisers.

    Thanks guys. I really love this workout. I know I could not have done it a year ago even though I was much slimmer and I worked out like crazy in the gym...

I think that I was emotionally ready for this challenge now. I'm sore all over ;-).

I am hoping to put a list together of all my self sabotaging thoughts and tap them away.

    Wish I could hold out to do those workouts. Too much arthritis and a little too old. I have to go at something much easier on the old body. LOL. Good luck!

    It's great that you started insanity, I hear great things about it. I personally want to do it eventually, but I'm starting from the much "easier" P90 and then building up :D emoticon
