INSANITY - Day 16 & 17 (Fighting Doubt!)

Thursday, July 18, 2013

I'd like to reiterate: this is the longest I've stuck with the INSANITY workouts, and I'm way proud of myself for that!

But it is a STRUGGLE to fight off all the doubt I feel.

There was a clear improvement on my Fit Test, and I'm able to push harder and longer in the workouts. I can make it through the warm-ups without stopping as often, and the same goes for the other circuits.

But it's almost three weeks into the program, and I haven't SEEN any changes in weight or measurements (though I FEEL the improved endurance and strength). At least one full week so far was filled with poor nutrition.

I'm afraid I'm sabotaging, or have already sabotaged, the possible results.

I'm pushing back against these negative thoughts, though. I keep having to tell myself that if I start making better food choices and keep up the workouts, then at the very least...I'm not hurting myself.

Today is Cardio Recovery. I don't burn much there, so I'll do a dance video after. So far, so good on my meals/snacks, and my little brother and I are probably going to go out to Jimmy John's for dinner (so I should be alright!).

Gotta stay positive, y'all! Hope you guys are doing well, too!!
