For those of you who have been reading my site, I apologize for not updating the site in over a month. For some reason I fell off of the blog wagon and for a little while the paleo way of eating. Yep apathy and laziness caught up with me. However I am done with that way of living for good. From hear on out I will blog regularly and stay focused on the paleo lifestyle. One good thing about stopping the cave man diet for a while is that it reminded me of how crappy it feels to eat the Standard American Diet (SAD). I put on a few pounds and became more and more lethargic. However once I started eating the correct way again my energy came quickly back to a much better level. Since I have more energy and a few pounds to lose I decided to follow the 60 day insanity workout to get in great shape.
I just completed day 2 of the Insanity workout and it is a butt kicker, but I know that it will be worth the effort in the end. Being 45 years makes it a little harder to do but I am committed to completing the complete challenge. I used to watch the workout infomercial and think they must be in a hot gym to be sweating that much, however after doing the workout in an air conditioned room I can assure you that it will make you sweat.
The Insanity workout comes with a meal plan, which I do not follow. I will stick with the paleo diet and see what results I get at the end of the program. I have so much more energy while following the cave man diet I don’t want to change to a new eating plan because I know eating real food works.
Looking at it the Insanity workout plan from the caveman view it makes sense that a lot of what you do during the workout is what the caveman had to do to survive. Caveman had to run from bigger animals to survive , he had to be able to jump over obstacles and he did all of this without a gym membership :). Insanity has you doing all of this and more in a quick less than an hour workout. I will follow the plan for the full 60 days and let you know how it works out. I will periodically update the blog with my weight loss progress and share my views on the Insanity program.
