I knew I was doing it wrong...

Monday, November 08, 2010

So I've been doing Insanity again.

Well, trying to. I started smoking again in May or June, and just stopped again a few weeks ago. Lemme tell you, having lung capacity when doing Insanity really really helps.

So, this round, I've been doing my best, but not as well as I'd like. I gained a few pounds back this summer from just laying around drinking, eating pizza and having a ball. I'm trying to get back on track, especially since I know how much better I feel working out then smoking. I can't believe something that drags you down soo low, is soo addictive. EEEVVVVVIIILLLLLL

Anyway, I'm reading this article today from CNN.com (http://www.cnn.com/2010/HEALT
H/11/08/twinkie.diet.profe
ssor/index.html?iref=NS1)

This guy eats nothing but twinkies and doritos and loses weight?! I'm doing Insanity and drinking soy protein shakes and gain?! WTH?!

Of course, my peace of mind comes in knowing that eating like that means there is no way I could possibly push my body to do Insanity. You put out, what you put in. I can tell when I've eaten bad and try to exercise.

Seriously, try it. Eat beautifully for three weeks while exercising. Make a log of your energy level before during and after your workout. Then eat like crap for two days for sitting for two days...tell me there's no difference!

Did you know that one 4 oz cup of Activia plus Fiber Peach yogurt is 110 calories!! Sheesh...maybe that's why I'm not losing anything...

    Ugh, articles like that piss me off. Yes, calories matter, but so does the nutritional content of what we are eating. I'm not quite sure how his cholesterol and all that dropped. That's interesting. There are so many other aspects of health..I wonder how he felt physically, mentally, emotionally compared to when he was eating a more well-rounded diet? Articles like that give the average person false hope..they read that and think "Well screw my diet, if he can live on Twinkies and Ho-Hos so can I!". And then they overeat and don't count the calories and they're back to square one.

    ANYWAY! Great to see you back and hear that you're trying Insanity again! I just started month 2 yesterday of my second round. Stay away from those cigarettes girl! You can do it!

    That twinkie diet would eventually cause Diabetes! I am sure of it!! Not healthy at all!

    Way to Go on re-starting Insanity. Ya gotta love Shaun T! I have contemplated doing another round of it myself. Good Luck and keep us posted on your progress!

    Twinkies and toritos would put me in bed. I feel much better with a healthy diet.
