No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I decided to start doing the T25 workouts today. I had tried the Insanity dvds. I did like them, but it was just waaay too much for me after the 3rd week even with modifications. I dreaded every single day. I never felt like I made a lot of progress, I was just getting more anxious and beat up. This program is sooo much better for me! I can ALWAYS fit in 25 mins. It's less about being "INSANE" and more about focusing for a short period of time and giving it all I can. If I felt it was too hard I just followed the modification actress. I never stopped once, it kicked my butt and I'm actually looking forward to tomorrow! ::gasp:::
I used to be able to do so much more and it hurts to think about it. I just need to focus on where I'll be in a few months. Faster, stronger and leaner. I feel so damn uncomfortable with these extra pounds weighing me down. Everything is different and it takes so much more effort. I am so excited about the changes to come.
Yesterday and today I've been cooking a lot. Since summer is wrapping up I've been going to the different farmer's markets and stand in my area. NJ is known for tomatoes so I made a batch of delicious tomato sauce to last me a few months. I also made my own pesto. I eat it all the time, but I'm trying to cut out dairy so I replaced the cheese with nutritional yeast. I also made a 2nd batch replacing half the oil with water and it is REALLY great. I can even say I like it more than the thicker oilier pesto. Today I'm trying out steel cut oat muffins w/matcha. I've been on a matcha kick lately and I bought some crappier matcha that will be better suited for food than drink. Later today I will make ginger carrot and white bean soup.
I've really missed cooking. The past few months I've been too tired, lazy and consumed with my food obsession to cook. I just wanted to go out and stuff my face. It's much less likely that I binge when I put a lot of effort and love into my food. It's gonna save me a TON of money too. More money for clothes when I lose weight ;)
