My first week of Insanity is done! I survived with a few extra breaks and a couple early stops but I did make it. I am so proud of me! I’ve not done a full week of a workout dvd before. I think having others to be accountable to is helping. I am sorta bummed that today (Monday is my off day). I had to switch things around last week due to my schedule and it’s actually working out because I’m working another 12 today and need sleep instead of a workout.
I can already tell a bit of a difference in my midsection. I’ve changed my eating so much that I don’t eat as much. I notice when I’m full. Finally! I’ve gotten to this point, I hope I don’t go back to the horrible eating habits I had before. Now don’t get me wrong, I didn’t eat a ton of junk, I just ate a lot. I would snack too.
I purchased some protein this weekend and have had a shake after my workouts on Friday and Saturday. They are so good!! I have it mixed in with my overnight oats and my vanilla almond milk. I haven’t been eating a lot of dairy lately either. I’ll put some cheese in my egg scrambles (not quite an omelet and not just scrambled eggs due to the veggies that are mixed in). but I haven’t been drinking regular milk in about 3 weeks. I also haven’t been eating yogurt, even Greek yogurt which is my favorite. I do miss it. I think I may have to add a Calcium supplement to my vitamins that I take. Hhhmmm
Anyways – I still haven’t taken my measurements – but I will do that tomorrow on my off day. I think this week when there is a weigh in on Tuesday morning at work, I may be down a pound or so. since I’m not working out tomorrow, that makes me nervous.
I’m hoping I do well. I’m determined to get in shape. I would really like to start running again after I’ve completed my insanity work out. Maybe do an every other day thing – a dvd one day and a short run the next so I can slowly work up to at least 3 miles comfortably. That will take time and I am in no hurry.
