Well, today I woke up feeling ever-so-sluggish, but after I ate a little bit of breakfast I got enough energy to start day 3 of Insanity. It was definitely a bit harder than the workout yesterday. I sweat a lot and did take a few breaks here and there (again, with a pushup move!), but that’s okay! I also felt like throwing up during the beginning. I guess I was really pushing myself. I also used my X-box One’s fitness app to do today’s workout. Luckily, the app has a few of Insanity’s workouts on there. Today I did Power Cardio and Resistance. I like using the fitness app on the X-box One because challenges pop up from time to time and you try and beat other women’s scores that are in your age range. I did beat a few of the challenges, but some I did not. I am sure with time and completing more and more of these workouts I will be able to beat all of the challenges one day! Super stoked to do that.

NO More EXCUSES!
Okay… the past couple months I have just made a ton of excuses when it came to me working out and eating right. I would do good for a little while, then stumble again. I would workout most days though, but then I would eat like crap and basically cancel out what I was trying to do.
So, now… I am determined more than ever to get my fitness and eating habits under control. I am determined to start and finish the Insanity program. I actually started it yesterday and started eating better as well. I really need to keep posting here, Instagram, and maybe Facebook. I feel that doing that helps me hold myself accountable.
No more excuses. I am STICKING to this. I did get a new job that starts next month, but I won’t let that stop me either.
No Fry Fries Recipe
Usually when my family decides they want fries for dinner I turn to Gwyneth Paltrow’s No Fry Fries.
They’re really simple to make and are very yummy! Check out the recipe below!
- 2 large russet potatoes (2/3 lb each), peeled
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
Heat oven to 450°. Cut potatoes in half horizontally; cut each half into 1/3-inch-thick fries and place in a bowl of cold water. I usually put ice cubes in the water as well. I soak them for at least one hour, changing the water every 20 minutes.
Remove from water and dry thoroughly. Toss with oil and sprinkle with salt. Place fries on a cookie sheet. Roast until browned and cooked through, turning occasionally, 25 minutes. Cooking times may very though. Just check them from time to time and cook them to your liking.
I also use Cajun spices to make them have a kick. 🙂

Two Weeks of Chalean Extreme Results..
Well, in two weeks of doing Chalean Extreme I lost 6 pounds… and now I have some bicep definition! I know it’s not a HUGE improvement, but it’s still exciting to me! If you or someone you know would like to try this program and have a coach backing them up along the way, contact me by e-mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Just wanted to share how great I’m feeling now since I’ve started Chalean Extreme. Never thought weight lifting would make me feel that way. Now I wake up earlier, and stay up late due to my increased energy. That’s also in part to Shakeology which I drink once a day, every day. I was really skeptical at first about trying yet another protein type shake, but I gave it a chance after my best friend since 2nd grade said it was working for her. They don’t taste bad either! You can mix numerous other things in with the shake, which I add almond milk, coffee and ice. It tastes just like a mocha! It also keeps me full for at least four hours. It also cuts my craving of junk food down to zero! I’ve lost a few inches all over my body and 6 pounds in a week so far. =)
