Insanity is Insane!

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Yesterday was my first official Insanity workout...I loved it!!! I was sore and shaky, but drank a protein drink after and don't feel too bad this morning. I have a good feeling about this workout, not only because it is something I want to do, but because this is the first time my husband is verbally supportive of me. He has always been supportive, but not as verbally as he is right now...probably because he had to pay more for this one emoticon

I drank more water yesterday afternoon than I usually do in a full day...because of this and the intense workout I did, I lost two pounds in a day!! I know that most of it is water weight from the new flow of water to my body...but I have always had to work my butt off for two pounds in a week!! I also know this is not going to be the norm, and not going to set any unrealistic goals for myself...but I am just going to be happy about it for the day!

I have found the girl I want to "look like" on there and use her for my motivation while trying to push through. She is the one in the fit test, and I love that she has definition without being rail thin. I know with my body type I will always have curves and thighs...but I also know that I can improve and define where I am at right also helps that she had similar start scores on the fit test as me...almost to the T!

I don't plan on changing my diet too much. I have already tweaked it in the last month and lost 2 lbs (in a full month, not a day) from that. Because of this, I feel that I will stick with that instead of the plan that came with the program. Plus the rest of my family loves the food I already make and that is key for me. I am not going to make different meals for everyone, so if I am making healthy meals that everyone likes I am not going to change it now. I am adding in a few more "snacks" for myself. I never used to have them, but I have a feeling I may want some extra protein as I go on with this.

I can't wait to try today's workout, so I better get the kids going so I can push play!!!

    Woooooh! Imagine me being a little cheerleader jumping up and down for you too! =D Damn I wish I could jump around right now! lol!!

    I'm so proud of you girl! Pushing yourself to being shaky and sore post workout ROCKS! It means you really DID SOMETHING for your body, and you rocked it out! Congrats! =D

    Also, Ican totally relate to that last paragraph about nutrition.. I'm SO in the same boat! It's all about creating healthy meals for the FAMILY so that they also acquire those taste buds for healthy foods! =] Something I have to remember is that just because I made it as a complete meal doesn't mean that I have to eat it all! =] I've been trying to keep this at a forefront of MY mind (for example - asian dinner with meat, stir fry veggies and brown rice. I've been aiming to only get my carbs in the evenings from non-grain sources (so pretty much veggies) and I feel so much lighter from this! So just because I make rice for EVERYONE ELSE doesn't mean that I need to load it onto my plate also! =])

    ANYWAY, I'll stop rambling, keep up the awesome work chica! =]
