I ate so well all day, but picked up pizza for for dinner for me, my parents and my daughter. Ordered a whole wheat w/ garlic and eggplant. They messed up and it wasn't whole wheat. I ate 2 pcs and was happy. Slightly over my points, but my workout would take care of that. Sat there thinking of a 3rd piece...spent a good 4-5 min debating it and *should have* just gotten up and left the table, rather than sitting there looking at the dried fried hot peppers topping that make the pizza so much better than great. And I thought of my flex points. And I thought of my workouts. And I thought of my motivational pics. And I thought of the eggplant and cheese. And I thought of my waist, and the scale, and my cute bikini awaiting summertime.... I had decided NO, and I was telling myself I chose wisely and should leave the room now. But no - I took a 3rd piece. It was a small one, but still...it's pizzeria pizza. Just not a good choice.
So now I'm doing the Insanity workout this evening. By far my hardest workout. I actually freakin hate it. BUT, I do really love that exhausted, totally worn out feeling when I'm done. That's pretty great, I must say. Tae Bo comes sorta close - like a little more than halfway there.
So - today I ate 36 pts
Exercise: Insanity Plyometric Cardio Circuit (-5 pts)
TOTAL: 31 pts (9 flex pts)
(I wonder if perhaps I'm over-estimating my workouts. I've been considering Tae Bo high intensity, but it's not compared to Insanity. So if Insanity is High Intensity, 40 min, 150 lbs - that's 5 pts.
Tae Bo is 15 min longer, but not as intense - 55 min high intensity, 7 pts. No way can Insanity be burning less than Tae Bo, even if it is shorter. No way.
I'm taking all my workouts down a point. It can't hurt to underestimate them, and I have to leave room in the intensity scale for this insane Insanity stuff. :) The worst that can happen, if I'm wrong but follow this anyway, is I'll lose more fat. Not a bad deal.
