Trying out something different

Saturday, September 29, 2012

Hey Sparkies, how goes it?
I'm sorry to report that I've been consistently slacking off in terms of exercise and nutrition.
I seem to manage to workout about 3X a week but it is definitely not enough especially if I take into consideration of the fact that I've been indulging in after dinner binges. It hurts to admit that I've fallen back into old ways by binging again but I know that its the stress of grad school+work+being away from home that's resulting in all this. The odd thing is that my weapon i.e. food of choice for these late night indulgences is.....oatmeal. Seemingly healthy? Sure, but not when I'm consuming 3 bowls of sugary oatmeal (instant+old fashioned variety) richly bathed in peanut butter....and this is after having a well rounded dinner!
I felt disgusted with myself tonight and have decided to stop this behavior once and for all. I eat a healthy hearty dinner at night so there is no real reason for me to eat again after that.

I am also planning on a major overhaul of my exercise regime.
I intend to start the Insanity workout tomorrow. I plan on reviewing it with re-caps and my progress as I get along with it (hopefully each week). I don't know if working out 6 days a week will be possible with all of my work/study commitments, but I am definitely going to try my best.

As always, man aging my time- with classes, exams, lab, work and home- is going to be the challenge.
But one hour a day? I think its do-able if I'm determined to achieve my goals and get back to my healthy ways. Also, hopefully, posting here regularly will keep me motivated to stick to my goals.

SO! Insanity begins tomorrow as does the "STOP THE BINGE" challenge! :)
Hope I can do it! :)
See you guys soon.
