I did not, did NOT, DID NOT want to work out last night. I had absolutely zero motivation. But the SIL came on over at 8 and we did our workout. Last night was Pure cardio plus abs. I somehow found it in me to do both, but I didn’t have to like it!
No seriously…I feel stronger, I feel more healthy, even sexy on some days, but I’ve learned that “Insanity ≠massive amounts weight loss”. I figure this is because I’m building muscle and muscle is heavier than fat…blah blah. Still, I want to see a bigger difference in the scales.

I realize that my clothes are fitting differently, but I’m just ready to see some fat melting away!

Until then, I continue to cross my fingers and “Dig Deeper”. Who’s with me???
