Well, diet sucked today... as usual. If I'm not delirious, my diet actually seems WORSE since I took on this challenge and it's really frustrating. Maybe it's because I'm watching it more closely. Breakfast is usually OK but lunch and dinner are always a bit of a struggle that is more mental than anything else.
On the up side - I actually didn't have coffee with milk and sugar today. I had a zero-calorie tea instead with a single spoon of sugar. Sigh. Diet was still a fail though. It's almost midnight and I'm exhausted but I think I may have to drag myself to the kitchen to pack lunch. The Insanity DVD comes with a Nutrition Guide so I may have to fall back on that until I figure out what I'm doing with diet.
For exercise, things are reaaally good today. I started the 60-Day Beachbody Insanity workout today so I finally have a structured workout plan. The truth is that full panic set on after I announced that I'd be starting the challenge on the blog yesterday. I was scared.
- What if I fail?
- What if my results suck?
- What if I can't get through the challenge?
- What if people laugh at me?
- What if this all turns out to be a wast of time?
Yah. The "what ifs" were limitless. I caught myself with my crap and snapped out of it. How bad do I want it? - REAL bad. So, onward I go and I'm glad that I started. I can't wait to keep going till the end and I pray that it will be worth it. Google Beachbody Insanity to learn more about the challenge.
For my hair, things are going so-so. I washed it after 7 days on the weekend but it neither feels not smells clean so I'll be washing it again tonight. I'm hoping to stick to washing once a week though and using my braids spray for moisture. I did notice something very strange at my hairline though. Either hair has broken away from the braids at the front or something but I have some short hairs there that are making me nervous. My hair wasn't tight though so I'm just gonna go with it and do my best to keep my hairline moisturized.
