Up in the Gym.

I think it's time I commit. 

I've done a couple random posts about the ways I've started to try to maybe get healthier this year. 

The juicing worked while I was doing it, but the diet wasn't really sustainable. 

I've been doing Insanity and very much enjoying it, but I'm not able to 100% stick to the program.

Why?

Well, on Mondays I take Zumba- and I'm just not to the level of fitness or healthiness to do Zumba & Insanity back-to-back. So, no Insanity is done on Mondays. 

Also, I really like doing pilates.  So somedays I'll skip the Insanity and do pilates instead- and I must tell you, I think the ab workout is better in pilates than in Insanity.  Plus, it helps me get more flexible for when I'm doing all the crazy jumps and such in Insanity!

So while I may not be perfect at sticking to the Insanity calender, I am still doing it- t minus six hours until my next session :) 

But, like I said in the beginning of this post, I think it's time I commit.  I am going to really start to get healthier- more exercising, less sitting around, better eating- all in the name of feeling better than I have in a long time. 

I know myself well enough to know that I do better when I feel accountable to other people.  Luckily I have been blessed with the most supporting, understanding husband ever, but I'm going to also use my blog as a venue to keep myself on track.  So today is my official first "Goal of 70" post- and I'm going to keep updating as a way to keep myself going! 

I have some pretty major goals- and I've started working towards them!  (and I have taken "before" pictures, but I probably won't feel comfortable showing those until there have been some major changes... but someday!)

What are you working towards?  I'd love to help support you, so feel free to comment below if you're doing anything similar on your blog- we can be there for each other!

My stats as of today:

Weight lost so far: 9 pounds
Weight left I'd like to lose: 61



Yep, that means I had a starting goal of 70 pounds.  Daunting?  Yes.  Impossible?  No. 

So, I'm committing to this- wish me luck!

Even though you don't do Insanity everyday it is awesome that you do SOMETHING. And you can totally do it! As for me, I'm a super slacker these days and need to get back on the bandwagon.

You are AMAZING! I know you will meet your goals, and I think it's good that you mix up your workouts by adding in Zumba and Pilates... I have sustained more injuries trying to follow every day of those Beachbody programs than I have on any other workout regimen. All that matters is that what you are doing gives you results, and keeps you hot, healthy, strong, and happy.

I just signed up for a half marathon in August. So I'm starting training for that this week. I've never run more than a 5k. This is going to be an adventure.

I think physical activity is always the best way to go. I have been lazy for the last few years and am "active", but couldn't actually commit to the gym. Now I'm looking at it as a fun new hobby, so hopefully it sticks. Cheers to committing!!
