Life after Insanity

Sunday, January 17, 2016

I think I pretty much talked myself INTO not completing the full 2 months. Those last 2 weeks were right at Christmas and between the impromptu socializing with lots of alcohol flowing, and having to move out for a week to make room for a visiting chef, I just did nothing.

I then went into a bit of a downward funk and it's taken till this last week for me to pull myself out of it. Of course, plenty of damage is done in 3 weeks. On the up side, once I did start up working out again, I felt quite strong.

I am going on vacation next week so decided not to commit to another program just yet, although I may well do on my return. I've just been picking a workout from my BOD (BeachBody on demand) or putting in a DVD. I decided to add in some weight training so yesterday tackled one of the new Hammer and Chisel workouts. Boy I feel it today so I must have worked some muscles hard that have not been used to it.

Our LTGL challenge this week is food prepping. I started doing this for the first time ever back in November when I started Insanity and I quite like it. It's so convenient to just heat up the prepared meal after a workout. That's working for the 4 days I am in office. It's the other 3 days of the week that are causing me to hold on to the lbs.

This week will be all about getting things done before vacation, so at least I won't have to think too hard about eating.

    Good luck with the food planning! Maybe try to do it on the 3 days your aren't working? Great job with the exercise, too.

    I don't feel it is about "committing to another program." I believe it is committing to yourself to eat healthy. If you find that life intervenes your efforts to lose weight, you won't be successful. Vacations, you can very easily chose healthy foods to eat. SO why not start now????? Good luck to you!
