The road to a healthy lifestyle has not been an easy one. I started off at 148 a few years ago, and in March I was around 127. I was still not eating healthy, and had lost weight by just lowering my calorie intake to around 1200 per day. I was not happy with what I was eating, and was always stressed out by it. I decided to change that and began going to the gym 3 days a week, and focusing on developing healthy eating habits. I got down to around 120 this way, and was still not completely satisfied with things. Over the summer after I graduated college, I decided to try Insanity for the first time. I still think this is one of the best things I could have ever done. I completed the first month and recovery week, but then began graduate school and did not have the time to finish month two. I was disappointed with myself for not finishing it, and began unhealthy eating again after this. I have not gained any weight back, but have lost a lot of the tone I gained from insanity and healthy eating. This past month I have began doing kickboxing twice a week, going to the gym and doing cardio and weightlifting twice a week, and attempting to do Pilates at home two days a week. I am also getting back on track with healthy eating. It has been an adjustment trying to stay on track with such a busy schedule, and I think I am getting back on the right track again, and hoping to keep up the dedication and motivation required to make this a total lifestyle change.
