I'm Committed

Over the past month, I embarked on this crazy journey into The Asylum.  I committed myself physically, mentally and emotionally.  I pushed my body to limits I never thought I could reach.  I willed myself to finish when the end seemed unreachable.  I stepped outside of a physical comfort zone and stripped many layers of emotional stress I'd been dealing with for months.  For 30 days, I was IN IT!  This is how I did it.

Twenty days into Insanity: The Asylum and I'm discovering new things about myself and am seeing results in a way that I least expected. 

I expected this workout to be difficult.  I didn't expect to have an out of body experience.

I expected to wince when I watched my self on film.  I didn't expect to feel pleasantly surprised.

I expected to lost ten pounds.  I didn't expect to gain two.

I expected to feel hungry following the 30-day Nutrition Plan.  I didn't expect to feel like I'm eating too much.

I expected to be able to do at least five pull-ups when I started.  I didn't expect to not be able to do any.

I expected be able to do all the moves in the workouts.  I didn't expect to have to learn to jump rope.

I expected it to be difficult to go 30 days without a glass of wine.  I didn't expect to be too tired to want one.

I expected to miss my morning Shakeology.  I didn't expect to love the energy burst from having it at night.

I expected to meet and workout with Shaun T after I complete it.  I STILL expect to!

Whether or not The Asylum is for you, I know we all could use some help cleaning up our diet.  I've started a 30-day Clean Eating Challenge on my private group page on Facebook.  Here we share recipes, provide support and accountability and most of all, our successes.  Thanks to Jill from Life As I See It for her awesome dedication to this challenge!  Without the right fuel, fitness is nothing.
