Quest For My Pretty - Weekly Weight Loss Report

Other than an evening of Tequilla and Karaoke, I followed the Insanity Meal guide nearly to the letter. I'm probably averaging around 1900 calories a day - way more than Lose It wants me to eat right now. But during the week I could really feel myself beginning to change. So oddly, I wasn't afraid when I stepped on the scale this morning...

Weight: 155.4 lbs (-1.4 lbs)

Yay! Something has started to work again! I do think it is more the ratio of 20% fat, 40% carbohydrate and 40% protein I am trying to stick with during these INSANE workouts. It helps! So if you're out there and you're doing Insanity, let me give you this advice: FOLLOW THE FRAKKING MEAL PLAN!

Insanity Week 2 Fit Test
I didn't expect to see the  results I saw during my second fit test. I improved! A lot!

Incidentally, I'm floating an idea: Not looking at my scale every week. My reasoning: I'm playing chemist with my body right now and putting it through some seriously tough work. The scale is not reflecting what I'm seeing every week, and certainly not how I feel. That's not to say it's not a good tool - it is. But it might be causing me more stress than I need right now. What do you think?
