I might be insane.

I’m beginning Insanity today. This is an intense cardio and plyometric based workout program from Beachbody. I’m anxious and very excited. I’ve lost 20 pounds in 2 months by making strong, healthy changes to my eating habits, and now it’s time to incorporate solid fitness. I’ve been averaging around 1300 calories daily. I expect to need to increase that with strenuous exercise. I’ve been walking, yoga, and a light run here and there, time to ramp up to full training.

This might be where I reintroduce some animal protein, like eggs. I’ve been eating vegan for almost one month now, and haven’t really wanted for any animal products, but I am struggling with protein, as I limit soy and grain.

Today is day 1, and the workout is the first fit test. I’m going to focus on form and do as many repetitions of the exercises in good form. My numbers might stink, but if I want an accurate assessment I can’t half ass it.
