Day 1 of the rest of the story

I started with Insanity Max: 30 as promised today 31st August, 2015. It is the first day on a 60 day calendar (So help me God).

First day (tagged Cardio Challenge)is really ridiculous but worth it, I am so out of shape that I maxed out at 2 minutes (lol), I am sure Shaun T had never had a record of anyone like that (lol). Just as I said earlier, today is the first day of the rest of the story.

As required, I took my statistics (measurements, weight and pictures) today to make a comparison at the end of 2 months.

Did I sweat? I was drenched

What was the workout like? Very challenging, as I kept maxing out at every 5 minutes of circuit. I almost punched the guy in the face (imagining he was with me) but not as much as I always want to with Jillian Michaels. Shaun T has some encouraging words to keep you going.

I am going to rest my head now getting ready for the morrow's "wakabout" (activities)

What challenging workout have you had in a while?

Weightless Wednesday

I wish I was weightless!!!

Good morning friends

Today is weigh in day and I think I had a 0.2kg less the weigh in for last week at 75.3kg today. I am not sure if that is a reasonable progress for, I hope I can record something positive for the coming week.

Not too good news!!!

I have slacked on bread eating and I am not happy about that. It is also impeding my weight loss progress, I eat it when I crave for it now and not on weekends as I earlier agreed to do. I have to caution myself and keep looking forward.

What food have you identified to impede your progress?

Meatless or Motivation Monday

It's either or both a motivational Monday or a meatless Monday. Either of the two I am still going strong today, had a meatless day by having a fish full day with my meals.

Motivation wise, I was on my feet the better of today despite the soreness from T25 on Saturday. Ouch!!!

"Public paid Announcement"

Insanity Max 30 starts on the 31st of August 2015 and not today as scheduled. I am on some "stuff" that would not accommodate any high intensity workout for now.

Don't mind me, I just had to hold on a bit.

A friend just announced her baby bump today and I am so happy for her.

Meanwhile, so that the day is not blank, I am walking at least a mile per day to keep body and soul in shape.

See you on maxing out day.

Saturday Treat

Good Morning Friends

I already said there's no treat today because food had been bad during the week. I am eating as normal as possible and I am proud to say that I ate from my garden this morning. I made some tomato sauce with eggs (tomatoes from the garden). Yummy

I woke to workout this morning not with Insanity Max 30 as scheduled (I changed my mind before bed last night) but with Shaun T in T25. That workout was the bomb, my heart rate monitor was high throughout the 25minutes of pushing, at the 21st minute, I was dizzy and a dire urge to puke came (sorry TMI) and I had to pause the video to just catch my breath and some fresh air. I remembered the words of Jillian Michaels,
"except you puke, faint or dieee, do not stop"

I stopped before any of that happened to me this morning, lol. On the long run, it's not easy but it's worth it.

A new lesson: make sure to have a pre-workout snack before any of Shaun T's workout.

I will be starting max 30 on Monday because that is what the schedule says. I will be having some yoga relaxation time tomorrow God's willing.

I am posting from the phone, I would have added pictures of my garden. It's a good venture and I think you can try it too.

Tomatoes before they ripe, (they are in buckets, lol) never mind the snail, pests

Fruity Friday

Brunch for Friday (today). This meal includes:

Apple, pineapple, watermelon, cucumber and cabbage. It was yummy as I took it with my chopsticks. I love the sweet parts and did my best to savour every moment of it.

It is good that I am following good schedule and I hope I can be better getting to my goal weight soon.

I forgot to weigh in on Weghtless Wednesday, so I did this morning and it was 165.3lbs (75kg), blah blah blah. Not good, but I took it in.

I am starting my workout schedule tomorrow Saturday (which happens to be my treat day too, I will likely skip it because I had eaten so badly this week) and God helping me it's going to be with Insanity Max (Shaun T).

I have read reviews and I think I really want to do this. I am ready to push till something happens to my weight positively.

For the information I am tweaking my goals, I am no more thinking of 155lbs at the end of August but before the next BLC Round 29 which is mid September, I know I can do this!!! So, even if I cannot get to 155lbs then I should at the 150s.

Do you love your fruits? How do you take them?

Thirsty Thursday

My cup on my table

It's thirsty Thursday and I already filled my cup (it's always on the table, never empty) with water. Sometimes I have green tea in it and other times it's colored water (added with Nutri C) but I make sure to have water on my table especially on Thursdays. Purpose of water in the body is not quantifiable.

Water and Me

Water has become a part of me

I drink it without thinking (subconscious action)

I am not held down by 8 glasses a day because I take double that daily

Weather is mostly humid in Nigeria, so I drink water by necessity

When I am hungry, I drink

When I am full, I drink (digestion)

When I am constipated, I drink water

When I am gassy, I drink water

Water is life

I love drinking water.

Tiny Tuesday

On my schedule of living healthy, today is "Tiny Tuesday", hoping to keep it as tiny as possible. I had an early breakfast today and also kept it tiny too. It's fiber (beans) and I believe there are some science behind taking such in the morning too. I will search that out and post later.

Tiny Tuesday is about having the lowest daily caloric count for the week.

Today (25/08/2015) is one of those days, I already have a fiber-filling breakfast  and I hope nothing else out of proportion comes my way till dinner.

I hope to always keep it as tiny as possible all-Tuesday long. 

Join me friends (look to the graphics and make that your standard for the day, lmao)
