This week has been insane (you know… because of Insanity workouts) but it has also kicked my metabolism back in to gear. I started to eat more healthy calories (i.e. just filling, healthy, food) and for the first time since I’ve been in this plateau/funk/stubborn chub situation, I just feel good. I’m not worrying about the scale or the immediate caloric consequences of what I’m eating. I feel like the way that I imagined what a healthy person felt like. When I was 357, I was sick, lazy, it was hard to breathe, and I could rest my head on my chest because of my numerous chins. I had all of these healthy friends and I always wondered what I that life was like, what it was like to be able to sit on a toilet without worrying about it breaking and things like that. This week, I finally got to feel that way. I felt free, and brothers and sisters let me tell you, that’s a freakin’ good feeling. So this week I actually lost 3.6 pounds!!! It was the best weigh in week I’ve had in 15 weeks. This funk I’ve been in has been rough, and I’m not saying it’s over, but the combination of doing an intense full body workout and feeding my body the fuel it needs has put me in a great place emotionally and physically. This week I lost the weight I gained in Texas and then some so I’m down to 261.2 which means I’m 4.2 pounds away from breaking 100. It finally feels real now, and when it happens, prepare to party.
Breakfast: I just had a bowl of Kashi Awesomeness. As the good book says (no.. not Where’s Waldo?) it was good.
Lunch: After church, our friends Daniel and Leah invited us to go to lunch at El Mercardito, this Mexican place on Tennessee. Since leaving Texas, we’ve been really hard pressed to find good Mexican in Tallahassee (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing) but I think we found our new place. I had two chicken burritos and they were killer. Usually when I go to a Mexican place, I dominate the chips and salsa and I am completely full so after I’m done I feel gross. Luckily, the first basket was free, but then you paid after so we kept it to two baskets split between four of us so it wasn’t as bad.
SAWS!!!: Today was Pure Cardio day for Insanity and it was pretty brutal, maybe not the worst, but horrifically exhausting nonetheless. I worked really hard, but I worked not to overdo it like I did once or twice last week. I felt awesome after, but I have a feeling I’m going to be really sore tomorrow.
Dinner: We were in a bit of a rush tonight so we got subs freaky fast at Jimmy Johns. I had the Beach club which is basically the veggie sub I get but with turkey. I also got half the mayo since the ones in Tallahassee don’t have a light mayo option. It was pretty awesome.
Dessert: I had some Edy’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough FroYo.
So today wasn’t terrible, but this week I’m going to stick to my calories and work out like a beast to get closer to get to the top of Mt. Fitintoskinnyjeans. See ya tomorrow.
