An update of sorts.

Friday, May 25, 2012

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!

    HI Lady!!! I am so happy to hear that you are still around! And also thank you for the goodie.
    Hasn't Insanity just been crazy? I honestly didn't know about 1/2 way in to this week if I was going to be able to keep going. Even though I am getting better, I still collapse every time we get down on the ground for floor work. I was wondering if you had experienced that too? Especially on Plyometrics? The second half of the workout KILLS me still. And I am supposed to do a week of that Balance & Core Cardio (have no idea what this consists of...I have yet to look at it) and then go on to an even HARDER workout? NUTS, I tell ya! LOL

    How awesome are we though for getting through it? And you....with your legs being in so much pain....you still dug deep and now you are right there at the end (well, kind of) and can know that you are STRONG!! You are amazing!
