I officially started Insanity yesterday (7/9). Let’s just say that the fit test made me tired. However, I’m motivated to complete this challenge. I’m not going to blog about Insanity (and Weight Watchers) everyday. Instead, I’ll give weekly updates until I complete my 60-day-challenge.
I’ve heard a lot of great things about Insanity, and have finally built-up enough courage to take a crack at it. I’ve actually had the Insanity set since 2009. I know, terrible. It is what it is. I’m ready now!
I’m also on Weight Watchers and have been on it for the past few months. Weight Watchers truly works, but I haven’t been reaping the full benefits because I wasn’t committed to any workout program. Now that I’ve signed on to Insanity, I can reap the full benefits of the Weight Watchers program. for me, Weight Watchers has reinforced portion control and eating less processed food. I am less inclined to eat out because most restaurant meals can use up a day’s worth of points. I’ve noticed that I also pay more attention to the fat/carb/fiber/protein content of the food I eat.
On Weight Watchers I lost 20 lbs, but I gained back about 5 lbs because I went on a self-induced hiatus for the last month and a half. So, to-date, I’ve lost 15 lbs. I haven’t given up because I am determined to reach my goal no matter how long it takes. I’d like to lose about 20 more pounds.
I know some of my friends and family think that’s too much to lose, but it’s not about how they view me, it’s about how I view myself. I by no means have low self-esteem; I just want to lose weight while becoming healthier and physically fit. This is something I have to do for myself and no one else.
