While I was away for work this week, my INSANITY package arrived. Very nice! The packaging is quite fun. It's this huge book basically. I love it! So far I've looked at the beginning of the nutrition section and paged through a few of the recipes. Here are my observations:
It definitely sounds like a great way to eat! I used to be in the habit of eating 5 meals a day that were very well structured in terms of the balance of carbs, protein, fat. This internship has gotten me away from that, so I am going to focus a lot on this when I start INSANITY.
The calorie totals are high! I used the Very Active multiplier because it's for people who exercise 5-6 times per week. I'll be doing that plus walking to and from school which is ~1.5 miles each way. That brought my maintenance calories to 2645! I sadly gained a few pounds this summer... They won't be here for long though! I'm going to do the weight loss totals, so that will still put me at eating 2145 calories a day! WOW!!!
I plan to track my calories on www.myfooddiary.com which is IMHO the BEST food and exercise diary out there. It's only $9 a month, and it is worth it! Waaaayyyy better than the free ones!
Okay, only one more week of work and then I start INSANITY!!!! I can't wait!
