Total Body Transformation

When I turned on my TV this morning to watch the news, I instantly saw an infomercial for Insanity. It is advertised as a 60 day total body transformation. A few months ago I bought Insanity, but I haven't been using it religiously. I actually hadn't used it in more than a month until yesterday. And when I did it yesterday, I fell in love with it all over again. However, the infomercial got me thinking. A total body transformation sounds awesome to me, but I don't have enough time to do Insanity everyday while training for a triathlon and a half marathon. But does that mean I can't have a total body transformation? I say no!

In order to achieve this while training, I am aiming at doing Insanity three times a week. However, a total body transformation won't happen unless I change my eating habits. Food is definitely my weakness here. Even though I tend to eat healthy foods, I can eat like a teenage boy. I am constantly hungry and most of the time eat when I am hungry. I am hoping I can really work on my eating habits in order to get in the best shape I can be in for my half marathon.

I have decided that each week I will set a goal relating to food for the week. That way I won't be super overwhelmed by a lot of changes. Some of these goals will include drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day, eating 5 servings of fruits/veggies a day, one dessert a week, only eating out once a week, etc. I am hoping this will really help me lose some of that weight that I gained at school in the fall
