Update

Sorry I haven't been very bloggy lately. Life gets in the way and I barely have time to breathe, especially with the exercise and cooking. So I got the PX90 program and started yesterday. Honestly, best workout I've had yet. It also tells you exactly what to eat, which is great.
I never knew that protein could give me such an energy boost. But the biggest energy boost of all was today when I came into rehearsal and a girl says to me "Wow, it looks like you've lost a lot of weight." That honestly kept me going through the whole day and I just did a 45 minute Cardio work-out. My face is red, I'm sweating balls, my feet hurt, and I'm loving every second of it. I didn't rest a minute with that workout and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I have to admit, I'm not following the diet perfectly. If I'm not going to completely give up, I need some junk food or sweets once in awhile. I'm just a teenager, you know? Not to say that I'm eating as much as I used to, but I need it sometimes. I actually haven't been hungry, though, because on this program, you eat a lot. You just eat a lot of healthy energy-boosting stuff. I could've never gotten through that workout without my meals. Tony Horton even says in the middle of it "I hope you've eaten enough today! Because, if you haven't, you're not getting through this! If you haven't, go get some food and come back later!"
That's one of the things I love about this program. It's not telling you to eat nothing and exercise a lot. That's impossible. Maybe it'll work for a week, but in the long run, it just makes you tired. Anyway, today's my sister-in-law's bday and we're going out to eat. So that'll be fun. But for now, I want to check up with everyone's blogs!
