The past week and a half, I've been very spotty with my workouts. I've been dealing with home troubles. I've tried my hardest but I've decided I will try again when I'm ready. <BR> But, in the meantime. I WILL be doing it 2-3 times per week. And on the other days, I will do other things. (I have different DVDS I can use to switch it up.). Also, I was going to go running like I did before I started Insanity. I'm especially excited about that one because the we... Sun, 21 Oct 2012 12:47:18 EST Day 17 of Insanity. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5101419 Today is the first day I'll be working on my Insanity videos for an hour. I'm going to have a very healthy breakfast, give it about an hours time....then hit it. Wish me luck! Cause I'm gonna need it. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/5/6/l563514456.jpg"> Tue, 16 Oct 2012 14:11:37 EST A little motivation in crafts :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5101367 I saw this yesterday while browsing the web. Weight loss jars! I love making things, and being crafty. So just putting these together should be fun. I'm making a "weight to lose" jar and a "weight lost" jar. Putting some pretty marbles in each and everytime I weigh myself I'll transfer some of the marbles! I just think it's cute. I'll set it on my kitchen counter. It will remind me everytime of my goal, and show me how far I have to go and how far I have come. <BR> <BR> I'm going to put pict... Tue, 16 Oct 2012 13:35:54 EST Sitting at work http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5100657 There's nothing to do right now. So I went through an instagram account of a girl that's currently doing p90x. She had a lot of inspirational pictures. And a lot of people thanking her. I want that to be me. I want people saying that I inspire them. That they think I do great. I want to be of some help when it comes to people trying to achieve goals. I'm going to start doing this as soon as I can. I will make a change. I will inspire people. I will do this and help not only them, but myself a... Mon, 15 Oct 2012 23:31:59 EST Very happy with myself. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5098849 As I said in my last blog, the morning wasn't going very well. I felt horrible about my weight loss. I didn't want to workout at all cause I felt like there wasn't a point to it. <BR> <BR> I literally slowly changed my clothes over about an hour or two. Put on my workout shorts. My sports bra. Tank top. Then my workout shoes. After that I was kinda like, well...I'm wearing everything...Might as well do it. I started back where I left off, and man am I proud of myself! Today was the second fi... Sun, 14 Oct 2012 16:39:58 EST Ridiculous. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5098609 I woke up today, and weighed myself. I told myself after I started Insanity, I would weigh myself every two weeks. I caved in and weighed myself a week into the program, and lost some weight! But when I weighed myself this morning, it went back to my original weight. That was definitely a downer on my spirits. I haven't changed anything, I skipped one workout due to me feeling sick. And other than that everything was perfectly normal. <BR> Maybe its muscle mass? Water weight due to PMS. UGH. ... Sun, 14 Oct 2012 12:50:28 EST I only seem to blog when I'm feeling down. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5094680 It's now 8:30 at night, and I still haven't done my Insanity workout for the day. <BR> I worked from 7am-3:30 pm. I cleaned house. And I went grocery shopping. Now that I'm back and relaxed, I almost don't want to do anything. I've been moving all day. Ugh, I know I should have done it right when I got home so this wouldn't happen. Need to find instant motivation. Wed, 10 Oct 2012 23:30:01 EST That guilt feeling. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5092815 I got into a huge fight with my boyfriend, who I live with. Well, more like a really ridiculous argument. Anyways, I left for work and was feeling very down. I've been eating so perfect lately it's unreal. <BR> But I let my emotions get the best of me, and I was offered a very small portion of cake at work and I immediately said okay without thinking. <BR> Now if you take a look at the big picture, this cake ruined nothing. It was so small, it couldn't have been HORRIBLE. But at the same time... Tue, 9 Oct 2012 14:36:47 EST Emotional rollercoaster over the past few days. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5088395 Ever since I've started insanity, about a week ago, my anger has been coming out more than it should. I've been sore, tired, and way grumpy. I've been taking it out on my boyfriend, who I live with....and I feel horrible. I'm not being mean, but quite snappy. <BR> My job plus insanity is just killing me. But whenever I start a new workout regime, the yucky feelings go away after the first week or two. So I guess I should just push through it, and if nothing improves, I should slow down. <BR> ... Fri, 5 Oct 2012 21:56:38 EST Bad day. Need to push myself. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5087054 I woke up at about 8:30 this morning. I honestly felt dead. Insanity has been killing me, at least I'm taking protein supplements, it's helped a little. I laid in bed for almost 6 hours after waking up. (It's my day off from work, and I have a very physical job). I used that as an excuse to have a lazy day. But knowing myself, a lazy day will throw everything off. <BR> <BR> It will turn into a lazy two days, three days, ect. I forced myself to get up and eat something, finally. Then decided ... Thu, 4 Oct 2012 20:24:22 EST Insanity workout. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5084245 Today was my third day doing insanity. After yesterday, my body was in so much pain, I almost gave up. <BR> I realized that I should buy a protein supplement for after workout fixes. To help my muscles. Let me tell you, today was so much better. I worked out the best I could, sweat almost the whole time to the point it was dripping off my face, and I didn't want to give up! <BR> I have 60 days to go, and I feel like it's going to keep going uphill from here. I feel like I will see amazing res... Tue, 2 Oct 2012 19:34:34 EST
