I've stuck with insanity for almost 2 weeks! I have one day left before I weigh in again and redo all the fit test activities so I can track my progress... To be honest I'm just really proud I've stuck with it this long and haven't missed a workout.

My running had been put on the back burner and that's not good because I have to train for the 10k. Boyfriend and I are considering just doing one month of Insanity and then starting to run everyday instead.

Last Saturday I had enough time to do the Insanity exercise and run/walk 3.5 miles... But then I had Mexican for dinner. Haha, always a little off track.

So speaking of my boyfriend, he and I have been arguing a lot recently. I think it might have to do with my new birth control... I've been feeling really needy and like I'm not getting any attention and I'm working so much harder than he is at being the best partner I can be. When I think about it rationally, I do believe he is neglecting me a little...but I think it is not as bad as in my head. He is in a busy time at work, and I'm in a stressful time at work. I make up these crazy scenarios I'm my head about how he is so mean to me and never listens, and I completely forget that he buys soda for himself and let's me drink them all, and always offers to drive when we go out.

I think we need some alone time... Busy season at work is almost over, but until then, I'm shooting for a "just us" date this weekend at a new restaurant.

Interesting... The past two days I have been eating breakfast- low sugar oatmeal with peanut butter... And I have been eating way more food overall. Is that because eating breakfast gets your metabolism up and working? Anyway, it's annoying.
I took too much Ritalin yesterday and couldn't sleep, so today was absolutely miserable. I tried to come home early but my roommate was here. Can't wait to move out... Only a few weeks til my own place!!

Last week was exciting because I finally saw a dip in the weight.  This weekend Iwas decent, but not great, and so this morning I was back up... not all the way up.. but up.  I know I shouldn't be weighing in on Monday's anyway... so I'll weigh again on Wednesday and see how I'm doing.

Over the summer I started to do Insanity... did I talk about that at all?  I only did maybe 7 days worth over the course of 2 weeks.. but it was HARD.  I'm back at it, and this time with my boyfriend.  He is coming to the end of his "busy" season at work.. and has basically not exercised at all for the last 3 months.  To be fair, we did run a race together in March, and he beat my butt... even though I'm always at the gym... so he's not THAT out of shape!

Anyway, it's nice to be doing it together and keeping each other accountable.  It is SOOOO hard.  I'm on day 3.  Day 1 was the fit test... 20 minutes and I was sore.  Yesterday he and I did the first real work out together, and the rest of the week we'll have to check in with each other as we finish.  I just did day 3 workout.  I would love for someone to video tape me attempting the moves... because I'm sure I look like a complete idiot.  Oh well, at least I'm trying.

On the food front I'm not doing TERRIBLE, but I really could be better.  I guess I always say that.  Right now I am in no danger of overeating because I have no candy in the house... I'm tempted to go buy those Reese's chocolate eggs though.. they are my favorite.  Obviously a bad idea.

I will update again soon!
