Okay. Today (Monday) I started up Insanity again. This time I will go the entire 60 days without stopping.
The last time I did Insanity was back in September or October and stopped after a month and a half (and 35 lbs). I started out at 285 and dropped to 250. I stopped because I hurt (wrists, knees, feet), I was having trouble keeping to the diet (eating 5x a day...the food was great), got sick, was having trouble finding time to eat consistently at work, and really wanted to pig out for thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years.
No excuses anymore, though. I definitely gained back some weight (I hover between 260 and 265), and want to get down to 200lbs before I stop. I am going to calculate my caloric needs, but chances are I will probably just stick to 1800 calories a day (unless the calculated need is drastically different) because it is easier to make the recipes at 300 cal each (plus my after workout drink).
I did my first workout and am shopping tomorrow for my short list of groceries...I just hope I can get it all done before work. My workouts are going to be at midnight (so I don't have to worry about what time to workout at), and I want to start taking jasper for walks in the morning.
On a side note, I broke down and bought hip hop abs and rockin body. Both are workout videos by Shaun T, and look incredibly fun to do (plus they were cheap). I figure I will throw one of those in on Sundays, with friends, or whenever! They are more dance style workouts to terrible music.
Well, I'll keep you guys posted on my weight loss and such!
