Starting Insanity Again
Insanity is madness and ultimately what it's felt like this past week. With getting back in the swing of things, one of my goals I really want to accomplish is actually dropping the weight I've been promising to lose for the past ten years. I truly believe that this is they year that I will accomplish things and part of this blog is holding myself accountable.
I'm sure everyone's felt that way and boy, week one has already been a struggle. While I've stayed pretty well on the workout train, I may have succumbed to the temptation of KFC one afternoon at work. Hey, when you fall, it's getting up and continuing to keep going that is the hardest. A quote that has really resonated with me this week is being stronger than your excuses. Every time I feel like I don't want to, I question my excuse as to why because honestly there is no excuse. I have a body that's fully functional, the money and means to eat healthy, and a ton of resources on how to be fit and the way to do it.
Because I love travel and getting on the fitness train, I've started Insanity by Shaun T. It's a 60 day program that is basically HIIT and will put me right under a week before I leave for Vegas to see the fam. Who doesn't love a good vacation to reward yourself for the hard work? I tried doing it for Europe, but horribly failed and for being such a motivated person, losing weight is the hardest thing I've ever done. It still continues to be, but here's to the first day of the rest of your life.
So far, I am five days in and haven't died yet. Between my day job and this, I just know the best is yet to come. Hope everyone is having an amazing week and tune in on Thursday for some foodie inspiration.
