Helping others

This past week I had to help this older lady that I work for pack up her apartment to move to an assisted living apartment. It's taken twice as long as I expected, with not drinking enough water throughout the day and eating out while on the run. So now that I have a few days left I'm trying to eat better and drink more water in hopes to end the month on a good note. It's a loss but how much is the question. I can't wait to see where we all land for the journey and hope that everyone keeps it up, so we don't have to use a competition to motivate us along our way. I'm going to keep posting till my journey is through, so I hope to hear from you all too!

slow and steady

I'm not sure what to say, things are slow and steady. I've been getting in my workouts everyday this last week, even if it's at 11pm at night! There has been some weight loss, I hope that it's enough to end this on a high note. I will try to eat better in the next 10 days in hopes that I can shed a bit more. It's going to be interesting to see how the next month is after this is all done. I'm in the middle of the Insanity program, and I really want to finish it out. Especially if it'll tone me up like I'd like to. I'm in the middle of the 3rd week, for those of you who know what that means. Next week is the "recovery" week and then you start the 2nd month with even more high intensity workouts!

on track

I just wanted to say it's nice to be back on track and losing weight again after the struggle I had last month when I allowed myself to over indulge. I've been doing ok on exercising almost everyday. The holiday weekend I didn't get as many in, but i've been doing better since. I put on a pair of my skinny jeans today! It's nice to know I will fit into pants for the winter.

So I've had Insanity this whole time. I got the program over a year ago. The first day you do a fit test and that's all I had done before. This time I'm in it! I've made it through the first week and starting my second. I am getting up most mornings and getting in my workout then. Most times if I don't get up before my day starts I end up not begin able to fit it in with the rest of my day. I realize that this is not enough. I need to fit in some other kind of exercise like jogging or biking. I just need to figure out how to do it with the kids in tow. Find a balance is hard. But I need to figure it out so that I will stick with this for the rest of my life. Last month I indulged in sugar, this month I won't let that happen again. Ending the month without a loss was full of regrets. Let's not end this all with any regrets!
