Update and a little insanity of my own :)

All right so! I ended my juice feast last Thursday with the Mangos. I made it for 3 days and lost 7 pounds which is a win. I’m going to take that. I said in the beginning that I was listening to my body and waiting for it to tell me it was ready for food again due to some digestive issues I had and after my first two teas from my Doctor…my body was like bring on the goods! 🙂 so, i gradually started back eating…just veggies at first (a baked potato) and then other soft things. I didn’t incorporate meat back into my diet for another 2 days. On Sunday, I had a piece of Tilapia. Even though, I could tell that the huge blockage in my tummy was over and done with, I didn’t start having movement again until today (Monday) which means the scale is off due to 4 days of food and very little semi-solid movement. Sorry for the TMI but its health stuff…Its ALL TMI. But I’m still taking my digestive enzymes with every meal, also I am taking other pills for health and digestion so I’m expecting it to clear up shortly and the scale will be back to being awesome :).

My Insanity :)…

So I’ve got the bug now. I’m on L1D2 of Jillian Michaels Shred and also today I went out and bought one of her books and two more DVDS; Frontside for Beginners and Backside for Beginners which each consist of 6 circuits intervals. My thought is this: If other, also normal fat people can get with Jill and other famous trainers and lose up to 100 pounds in 3 months…then surely if I put the same type of effort in, I can lose 60 in 3 months…I mean that’s my theory. So here is my plan…and we are going to put this to the test for 30 days: I am going to do Jillian Michael’s shred 5 days a week, 2 days on, 1 day off 3 days on, 1 day off, after I complete the shred and catch my breath and decide I’m still alive, I’m going to go outside and do walk/run intervals for up to 2 miles depending on how I’m feeling. I don’t have a fancy watch, but I do have my MP3 player so what I do is jog for the first stanza of a song and then when it gets to the first chorus, I walk the rest of the way and I will gradually adjust it up until I’m running the whole way. I did it tonight and I completed one mile within 3 songs…about 12 minutes which is way faster then my normal standard mile. After I complete this post, I’m going to do 3 circuits from frontside and 3 circuits from backside and follow it up with a fresh veggie/fruit juice that I’m going to make on my uber awesome blender so my body can use great nutrients to rebuild itself. I’m going to do the run/walk intervals everyday and on shred off days, I’m going to walk/run up to 45 minutes. Ideally, I’d like to get up to 30 minutes of walk/run intervals on regular days. After my walk/run intervals, I’m going to do 3 circuits from frontside and 3 from backside, alternating each day for a total of 6 circuits. My thought is to do at bare minimum 1 hour of super awesome exercise per day. I’m going to give it all I got and increase my efforts as I get stronger and more resilient, but I’m feeling like this is possible for me. I’m feeling like I’ve got the drive for change if I can just hit upon the right formula then something amazing is going to happen.  I’m going to continue to calorie cycling, but since I’ll be exercising everyday, I’m going to up my calories range from 1300 to 1800 to 1500 to 1800. Obviously, if something happens and I wound up not getting in all my exercise for that day, then I will decrease my calories accordingly but I’m feeling really great about this. I think I can pull this off. I think I can work my way up to 2 hours of exercise per day…but right now, I want to get up to an hour of exercise per day, even if I have to take breaks between sections. And so those are my thoughts. I posting it here on the blog because I do feel the need to declare, but the only person reading this is me…which is fine, since this is about me and for me anyways. And then I went off on a negative rant about people, but I want no negativity in this space of pure awesomeness that I’m going to exist in for the next 30 days. 🙂 So I’m off to do the final tail end of my workout and I’ll check in with stats at the end of the week, perhaps on Sunday :).
