Wine, Trout, and good times

Thursday, July 08, 2010

Last night the pan fried trout that I fixed was superb. The zucchini didn't turn out as hot, but was still good. Learning experience. :] After we ate, me and Bruce had some wine, and I ate this amazing dark chocolate bar with raspberries. I don't know why I even keep stuff like that in the house!

Well, today I only had to work a half day at work which was pretty sweet. I got off at 1030, and came home fully intending to work out before I relaxed. Didn't happen, I took a nap while watching Food Network. Always looking for new things to cook, I love watching those shows. Good news is that I still went to the gym around 5 and I kicked my own butt. I have come to realize I always push myself the hardest when I don't want to go. As a sort of punishment and reminder. :]

Even though I ate a bunch of butter crackers with goat cheese earlier, I still stayed reasonable with my eating (so far) today. I am glad to report that. I felt like "I messed up on calories yesterday (but I did get an amazing work out in), so what does it matter if I do today?" Then I logged in and logged what I'd eaten and saw that I still had plenty calories for a reasonable dinner and decided to stop eating and deny the desire to binge so the day could end well. :] Glad it did.

I am wanting to really fire up my workouts, and try a new program. The lifting program I had been doing is much to much for the level of fitness I am in. I thought I would be able to modify it to meet my goals, but it just isn't what I am looking for. I am not trying to sculpt just yet, and I don't know that I EVER will be trying to sculpt the way the work out is trying to. I still want to be womanly and not bulky muscular. So, I am thinking about trying Insanity. I am supposed to be moving next week, and will have quite a bit of space to do it within. I am just wanting opinions. Has anyone tried Insanity? Stuck with it for 60 days? Liked it, loved it? And lastly, is it going to make me sweat enough that I am really getting something done?

Thanks in advance. I have to smile now, tomorrow is Friday (although it is drill weekend.....................)

    You won't bulk up simply from lifting heavy. I have been doing Crossfit for a year and have toned quite a lot, but have not bulked up in anyway.

    Haven't heard about Insanity before. I'm curious to see what it is.

    Exactly what Absolutezero said -- I bet my LIFE that you will not "bulk up."

    You're not going to look like a dude -- ever. Not from lifting. Those broads who look like guys are on steroids. Don't care what they say--they are.

    I was squatting 62lb and tossing around 50lb feed sacks and never looked like a man -- and wouldn't want to. I don't get whatever those women want who shoot up. That's nasty-looking!

    Heather, you are going to continue to look like a woman. Your body does not have the testosterone to make you bulky. The more you strength train, the more fat you will burn.

    Insanity will have you sweating like you never have before. I promise you that! Go ahead and give it a shot! I will be here every step of the way!
