An update of sorts.

It feels like it's been forever since I posted a blog. This week is winding down and I'm looking forward to the long weekend. Insanity is still in full swing, yesterday was day 26. I can't believe it's been that long! I'm getting frustrated in the results I'm seeing, and I know that's normal but it's still frustrating :) I know my body is changing, it's just not changing the way I can see I guess. I can FEEL it though, and I suppose that's what is important. As for Insanity itself, I took it easy last week and replaced a couple days of Insanity with some alternative, less HIIT videos, and I 'm SO glad I did, my shin feels SO much better. It got to the point where I was barely able to walk after a work out. Now I'm back to full on INSANITY!! No pain no gain! Or something. But seriously, the leg pain has subsided completely. I was scared I may need to change to a different workout. I'm just taking it one day at a time.
In other news! I believe the BF might be starting a new job soon, which takes a big stress off of us. Things have been good at home though, that past few weeks we've done a good 20 mile bike ride on the weekends. I'm still new to riding so 20 miles is pretty much my limit, at least without sufficient water/food. The BF is a big big nerd so 20 miles is nothing, I feel kind of bad holding him back, but I know I can't push myself or I'll be even slower than I already am! Speaking of biking, I rode my bike into work today! It's been a theme the past few fridays, we get to wear jeans into work so I figure it's the perfect excuse!
In motivational news, I'm heading home for a visit next month and I've been posting on FB what I've been doing. I like sharing with people what I'm up and it keeps me accountable. The lack of visible progress stresses me, I mean, I don't really care what people think. But I want to look good when I visit! After everyone has read how far I've come I don't want them to look at me and think "Wow, you've been working out? Yeah right!" So I made a promise to myself today, going forward, I WILL TRACK MY FOOD! I haven't done this in years, I try to avoid keeping a detailed account of my calories, because then I get all OCD and crazy and it makes me feel crazy. BUT, it does help, and while I don't think I've been eating too much out of what my calorie intake should be, after I tracked last nights dinner, I was... a bit off. 21 days till my trip! I think I can make some progress in that time! Happy Friday!
