Leading up to Summit Adam and I were hard core eating healthy and working out!
We managed to trim way down and I was delighted that I could wear crop tops to Nashville. This was the first time in my life I felt comfortable showing a sliver of stomach! Hallelujah. Heehee.
I felt AWESOME!
I had done the 21 Day Fix Extreme program using the Countdown to Competition eating plan and I really noticed a difference in the flattening of my tummy.
But then we came back from Summit and we had several days of cheating and fun, then we had a week long vacation that we completely relaxed and let ourselves have way too much fun. Before we knew it we had out funned all our hard work. *sigh*
What made it worse was the Holiday season was coming up and the typical weight gain over the last few months of the year was looming over me. I was a bit concerned I would gain on top of the weight I had.
I was disappointed I let it get that far, but I was confident in my ability to whip myself in shape again. Once you’ve done it it is much easier to do it again. Your mindset is so different than when you are starting for the first time.
So I set out to do something I never thought I would do, Insanity!
I truly truly never ever ever saw myself doing Insanity. It just didn’t look like fun. I had finally reached a point in my fitness where working out was actually enjoyable so the thought of doing something that would intentionally be the hardest thing you could ever do… Well that was not something I’d ever do.
But I all of a sudden just decided to go for it. I have no idea what I was thinking or how I even got it in my head that I could do it, but I told myself it would be a good challenge and I was scared. I was afraid I would, in fact, be unable to do it and I didn’t want anyone to see me fail.
I felt deep down that maybe it was time to push myself to something harder (mentally) and try to expand my idea of what I can do.
Scary?! You bet!
But I believe in over coming obstacles and challenging myself, to grow as a person.
So here I am, finally doing INSANITY!!!
