The last 3 weeks Shaun-ta' and I have been starting a new exercise and fitness routine, we are 3 weeks into a 9 week cycle of the Insanity workout program. This is a part of my 13 Skills in 2013 plan. Increasing my fitness is important to me for several reasons, firstly I am sadly out of shape, I do not feel healthy, I also do not want to develop any health issues like diabetes. I expect to lose weight in the process but that is not the focus for me, it will come off in the process. I just desire to be healthier and increase my fitness level.

I will still eat honey and some of our own homemade jam, though I will keep the jam to a minimum. We typically will use honey in our bread recipes in place of sugar anyway.
I am hoping for a couple of outcomes. I hope to gain a better idea of what these foods are doing to my body and how I might feel by removing them from my diet. It will expand our number of healthy recipes. I will also be able to use more of our stored, canned and homemade foods. I anticipate sleeping better, and having more energy through out the day. I also expect to feel pretty crappy for a week or two.
I also expect to gain a better understanding and appreciation of the Word of Wisdom as I better align my diet with what it teaches.
I will check in and post each week to report how it is working for me. So check back and see how I am doing.
