Insanity Day 4: Coup d’état

March 18, 2013 § 2 Comments

Actually, day 4 hasn’t really happened yet as I dismissed my alarm this morning and slept through my workout.  It’s a good thing, though, I don’t think my legs could have handled a morning workout today.  Unfortunately, this means I have to do it tonight AFTER I have worked all day long.  Woo hoo!  Looking forward to that one.

Any, since I’m a masochist, I weighed myself this morning (like I do almost every morning) and found that I had gained 1.5 lbs since starting insanity.  Yes, that’s right, GAINED 1.5 lbs.  I’m pretty sure my body is rebelling against my choice to torture it into submission.  My body is trying to trick me into stopping the insanity (pun intended).  It is saying, “hey look, this insanity thing isn’t going to help you.  It’s only hurting you and making you gain weight.”  Now, I could look at this weight gain and get depressed and say, “fuck this, why should I keep exercising if I’m only going to gain weight?”  But I won’t.  Instead, I will pretend that the weight gain is a sign that my body has gone into shock and is storing all the food I eat.  It won’t last long and my body will give up the fight and eventually just go with the flow.  Yeah, that’s it…sure…  Anyway, we’ll see.

    Don’t worry about the weight gain, your muscles gain lean weight and loose the fat, that’s all. Keep it up, forget the scale for a while and just do it when you can do it. Don’t be too hard on yourself, you are already taking a huge step toward your goal!! You should be very proud. I am amazed by your strength!!! I work out 5 times a week and I couldn’t see my self doing this insanity thing! Great job!!!
