Month 2: Health and Fitness Recap

It has been over two months since I've started my healthy lifestyle journey, and I feel great! I have never come so far with eating right and exercising, and I must say that I am in the best shape now than I ever have been in my whole life.

Month 2... Total weight loss: 19.8 lb.s

I have weighed 148.0 lbs for the past couple weeks, but from all the intense exercising I have been doing, I know I have been continuing to lose inches. My body is toning up and my clothes are getting loose. I tried on my size 8 bridesmaid dress and it is too big! I am now a dress size 6! I guess I will have to get the dress altered... Even my size 8 pants are getting a little baggy. I never thought I could accomplish getting my body in shape like this, and it is so good to know from experience that getting in shape IS attainable!

I am still following the Insanity program, but as of last week I also joined Planet Fitness and got the Black Card membership (enabling me to go to all Planet Fitness locations, bring a friend, etc.). Since then, I have gone a few times with my sister-in-law, Renee, and mother-in-law, Wendy. It has been a little tiring on the days I do both insanity and the gym, but I have been having a blast with Renee and Wendy! Exercising by yourself can be lonely (and boring) so it has been great being able to exercise with family.

As far as Insanity goes, I am REALLY getting sick of it...but I only have 11 more days to go! Today I completed Day 51. There is NO way I'm giving up this close to the end.

Yesterday was the fit test. Here are my results:

Once again, I improved in all the exercises (except globe jumps which stayed the same), so that was a relief!

After doing much research the past couple weeks, I have decided to make some changes to my nutrition plan. I plan on sharing these changes with you very soon! Stay tuned....
