Here I go again...

Well here I am again.... back on my journey towards finding my inner skinny girl.

I feel like this time could be it.  I have been doing well for a week now... or tomorrow.

I haven't had a Dr. Pepper in over a week (headaches are now gone... took 3 days!).

I started working out on Friday... though I didn't want to do it, I forced myself to change and do it. 

I weighed in last Monday at 200 even.  :/ So, not much more or less since the last time I started losing weight... guess its like I was on pause.

Well, pause button is now in play mode and this fat girl is ready to start shedding those pounds and inches.

One of our teacher's at school sent out an e-mail about doing Insanity after school every day and I said what the heck, I'll give it a shot.  So I went out there and did the "fit" test and man I'm so out of shape.  I got a good workout and left pumped up to workout more.  I don't care if I'm able to do everything in the workout but my thoughts are... at least my heart is pumping, my body is moving, and I'm sweating.  Oh, and I'm not alone and it's right after school.  If I waited until I got home and had the time... it would never happen.  Insanity seems pretty crazy but I'll try it and see if it brings results.  :)  I know
that I won't be magically transformed.
I have started back on using My Fitness Pal and have entered in everything for almost a week.  It really does help because I start getting hungry or looking for something to snack on and then I ask myself if I am really hungry or if I really want to enter that in.

I was watching some TV today and found an commercial for Insanity that made me want to jump up, put my shoes on, and work out.  So... I did.

I put my shoes on and went into the living room to do Zumba on the wii with my oldest boy, Conner.  He lasted about 5 minutes and then sat down to watch mommy... or laugh at me.  :)  When I was almost done, he looked at me and said, "mommy, why are you still fat?"  I told him that Zumba didn't work magic and how nice it would be if it did.  He is funny about the way he just blurts out what he's thinking.  Sure did put some more umph to my step and make me work a little bit harder.  I lasted through 2 sessions- 40 minutes.

Sure does feel good to workout.  I love the feeling I get after a good workout, such success, sweat, sore, happy feeling.   I'm ready to start getting these children to bed earlier and hitting the concrete!

 I want to get a heart monitor for when I do workout.  Its hard to know for sure how I'm doing or how many calories I am really burning or if I'm pushing myself enough.  So, that will be my next purchase when I can.

Tonight we celebrated my 3rd child's first birthday.  He turned 1 yesterday!  I can't believe my little baby is growing up!  :( He's so dang cute and I just can't get enough of him. 

Well... I'm sleepy and tomorrow is Easter, so I guess that's all for now.

Until we meet again...
