My groove has been missing since May 11th, the night of the Fittest Loser finale. I’ve searched high and low, and I keep catching glimpses of it, but it’s always just out of reach.
So to get back in the weight loss groove once and for all, I am trying two new things this month:
- A Fittest Loser contest with my mom and Jon. I believe we’re doing pounds rather than percentages since we’re all hoping to lose 20 pounds on our little contest. My starting weight was 219.6. The problem? Day 1 of our contest was my baby brother’s high school graduation and we had a celebratory lunch at one of my family’s favorite places. Where we ordered our favorite nachos. I SUCK at weight loss.
- I ordered Insanity. Yay for craigslist–I’m picking it up tomorrow for $65 (vs. the $145 price when bought new through Beachbody)! if you don’t hear from me by Saturday night, call the police. I’m meeting the seller alone and I’m not even sure if he/she is male or female. I promise I won’t go in any houses. And I may bring pepper spray. (Can you tell this is my first craigslist transaction?)
I should probably be more worried about Insanity itself than the craigslist seller. After all, in the video here, the very fit shirtless gentleman is dripping with sweat and declaring, “That sh*t is BANANAS, yo!”
If it weren’t so funny, it would be very daunting.
Seriously, I probably should have watched the video BEFORE committing to the purchase. The guy wasn’t kidding. It IS bananas. Just watching all the jumping makes my knees hurt. However, I am in desperate need of a drastic program that is going to get me back in my groove. I’m determined for this to be it.
The bonus? I can exercise in my air-conditioned family room. While we’re on the topic of insanity, these outdoor boot camps in 90+ degrees have been insane. I was thisclose to throwing up last Saturday and I sweated off three pounds in one hour. (Too bad I ate those nachos and gained it back.)
I weigh in again on Saturday and I’m convinced Michelle is going to kill me when she sees that the scale hasn’t budged. And that I’ve been remiss about journaling. Why am I doing this, yo? Oh, sorry. Sweaty video dude’s vocabulary is contagious.
Check back to see an Insanity update by Saturday night–assuming I’ve survived both the craiglist seller AND the first workout.
