As some of you saw On Friday's post, I told you I was going to focus on one goal for the rest of the year. And that was getting healthier and losing weight. I goaled myself at 10 lbs loss by the end of December but as long as I see overall improvement, I'll be happy.
Well, so far so good! I didn't work out this weekend because I was on the go go go all weekend. But I tried to stay active as much as possible!
I have stayed loyal to working out Friday and now Monday. I'm doing Insanity because with this cold, it's hard for me to be in the cold any longer than I have to (gym travel included!). So insanity is a great substitute if you are not a gym person or you are like me and just want to get to warmth and not have to leave!
Plus, insanity is the only home workout where I have seen true results. About a year and a half ago, I first tried insanity. I lost 12 pounds! So I know if I stick to it, I will see results.
I'm trying to stick to the book Abs Diet for Women to help with good and nutrition. I really like it overall and it's very educational.
I got some good advice from a woman at church this weekend who is a fitness instructor. She said "I think most people think something is going to happen where they will enjoy working out. Or they will find an exercise that will change their way of feeling about exercise. At a high rate, that's just not the case. So I recommend admitting and knowing you're gonna hate it, but doing it anyway."
Believe it or not, that has really helped me stay on track with eating and exercise. I know I'm not gonna like it, but I'm gonna do it anyway because after I'm done, I feel great.
Thanks for keeping me accountable on this journey to accomplish my end of year goal!
