Weigh-in Wednesdays: 130.2

Starting weight: 176.4
Last week weight: 129.4
Current weight: 130.2
Current loss: +0.8

Second week in a row with another slight gain but it's no biggie cause I know of several reasons why this could be:
  1. TOM
  2. off of my mystery diet
  3. started a new exercise program
  4. ate out last night - Mexican!
Okay so #1 is obvious... I gain anywhere from 2 - 5 lbs. just during this time.

#2 is a little trickier.  After doing so well with the diet plan I was on, I decided to end it early (it was 6 more weeks of strict eating) cause when it really came down to it, I didn't truly believe in the diet.  In fact I knew it was controversial and not a smart way to lose the weight. What I mean is I did it to prove it DIDN'T work, but it did what I needed it to... it got me to a brand new low weight and has completely remotivated me.  So long story short, it's a diet that you deplete your glycogen and fat stores which means no eating fat and very little carbs.  I'm talking one apple as your carb source for the day... really!  And since I reintroduced both fat and carbs back into my diet, well it's no wonder I show another gain.  No biggie cause that's not true "weight-loss" anyway.  Moving on!

#3 is what I'm most excited about!  I got this in the mail on Friday and was so excited:

Yup, jumping on board with the others and doing Insanity!  I took the fit test and did the first dvd and I'm hurting... in a good way!  Without my trainer, I've been a little lax on myself with the intensity of my workouts so Insanity put me back in my place and my sore muscles are proof.  Word of warning: This is not a program for beginners! I don't consider myself  "advanced" or anything, but I have over a year of training with a professional in plyometrics and agility so knew I could attempt this program.  Lots of jumping and high-impact stuff so if you have knee or joint problems, definitely check with your doctor first.  In fact you should check with your doctor first no matter what your fitness level.

So as excited as I am to do this, I won't be blogging about it too much because I noticed that tends to be where things get off-track.  I get so caught up in wanting to blog about it everyday that it becomes a chore and I want to stop.  I think that's the reason why I never completed rounds of any Beachbody program even though I have over 5 of them!

I will exercise everyday, 6x/week, but if I get off schedule and throw in some solid weight-lifting workouts instead... so be it.  As long as I'm consistent, right?

And #4 on my list of "it's-a-gain-again" is pretty staight forward too... but it was yummy!

Insanity! Woot woot! Lol. I can't wait to do that program! I'm going to do a round or two of CLX before trying Insanity. I don't want to give up because it's too hard or something. I hope it works great for you!

Good luck with that Insanity. I've heard of a lot of people who have been very successful with it!

Salina Lyn said...

Rock on! You're my hero!

erin said...

You go girl! You're going to LOVE insanity!!! (especially the results!)

Katie J said...

I have been bouncing all over the scale too.

I think you are amazing and I do think you are ADVANCED when it come to training. You're a rock star Annie girl!

Sounds like you are on top of things. =D Keep working hard.

Chris said...

LOL I was wondering whom Tom was at first. :-o Looking forward to hearing about how insanity goes for you (no I'm not expecting a day by day)- I'll never try it myself. After experimenting with other workouts I'll stick with Tony Horton's stuff. Keep Rockin' my friend!

Kyle Gershman said...

Wow...Insanity? Well...that is well...Insane! In a good way, though. That is a program I've had my eye on for awhile, but since I've let Jillian kick my booty the 2 times I've tried one of her DVDs, I'm still not sure I'm a DVD kind of guy.

Perhaps you'll show me the true light!

Go for it babe!

Some find blogging to be a chore, others find it an opportunity to keep on track. Good for finding out what works for you.

Good luck with the insanity!

Deb said...

Good luck with Insanity!!! And why does Mexican food have to be so darn good??? If it was only healthy...

Amber said...

You'll come back to loosing. Glad to see it's not putting a damper on you. And I think it's great that you are taking a look at what you can do differently. I think I need to do that.
