On the verge of INSANITY!

That's it!  I've had it!  Sticking to a diet all by myself is just too hard for me right now.  This summer, I have gained five pounds.  FIVE POUNDS!  Okay... might not seem like much, but five can turn into 10, can turn into... well... you know...

So, I've made a HUGE decision.  I've decided to go the route of the insane.  I have signed up for Beach Body Insanity.  That's right.  I'm going to be working out insanely hard every morning with Shaun T.  And in addition to that, I'm trying out the Shakeology breakfast meal replacement.

Friends tell me... "You know, that's kind of extreme."  "It's probably only going to work for awhile, and then you'll gain the weight back."  

You know what?  Maybe I will gain the weight back... maybe I won't.  All I know is that I've battled depression this summer, and I'm tired of it.  Exercising makes me feel good, and as a result, I'm happy, and I am ready to be happy ALL the time.  

So... I have made the decision to:
  1. Get my butt out of bed every morning to exercise (starting Monday).
  2. Drink my breakfast (via Shakeology).
  3. Follow the Insanity diet (allowing breaks to maintain SOME sanity).
  4. Be a happier mama and wife.
  5. And ENJOY the fact that Peanut Butter is on said diet.  (YAY!!!  Oh, how I have missed thee!)
It will be interesting to see how this plays out.  I'm going to put out weekly updates and pics in order to keep myself on task.  (Oh gosh... did I just say that?  Now, I'm REALLY gonna have to stick with it! ;)

I KNOW I can do this!  Now, I just gotta make it happen :)


  1. I'm so proud of you for doing this and for also holding yourself accountable by writing about it! Ignore all those pessimists who say it's a quick fix because clearly they know nothing about it. If they did, they would know it's a lifestyle change! I am living proof that it's not a quick fix and the pounds don't come back....I've been doing it all for four months now; not only have I lost more than 40lbs, lost inches like crazy, getting muscle tone back, but also I have more energy than I've ever had, and I am happier and healthier than I've been since I was in the military! Give it your all! GO MICHELLE!!!

    1. Thanks, Anna. The insanity starts on MONDAY! Oh gosh... I'm nervous... but ready for a change!

  2. Ok lets see the before pictures!! You go girl!!! I gotta kick this no exercize streak too!!! Let us know how it goes cuz we all gotta know!!!

    1. Oh I will! Before pics on Sunday or Monday. As much as I'm going to squirm at the idea!!!!
