H2O, Aqua, call it what you want but I NEED it.

If you know anything about me you know i DESPISE drinking water. However, you cant do these workouts and NOT drink it. Im begging for it! Ive never worked out like this before its a new experience for me. I guess this would be a good point to talk about the "diet" of insanity. There isnt one!!!! yay!! lol. He says this is NOT the time to go on a diet. He obviously promotes you eating healthy and in appropriate portions. They have protein shakes you can purchase...i think its called shakeology? and they also promote a recovery drink of some kind that is supposed to recharge your muscles. We havent got either one at this point. I for one can't stomach protein shakes...not sure if Todd will go for those or not. In case he does leave me a comment and let me know which ones you like or dont like!

Now ive gotten a lot of "concern" from people about WHY on earth i would be working out. So let me set the record straight. I have no intention of trying to loose weight. However i do need to be getting some cardio and exercising my heart regardless of how skinny i am. Also Todd is wanting to get in shape and be healthier and i really want to support him and do this with him. So here is where i need some help (lisa lol). What adjustments do i need to make to my diet to make sure i dont loose any weight? Obviously i need to eat more but i want to eat more of the right things...and protein shakes are NOT an option.

Well today concluded day 8. I have to say if it werent for Todd i would have quit by now.

ok, seriously, can i slap you on having to make sure you eat more calories to not lose weight? I can just look at a cheeseburger and gain 5 lbs.

;) Good work.

Ok Behki-make sure you're eating alot of protein-chicken, fish, eggs, you can 'afford' peanut butter, nuts. Stuff like that. Don't forget to balance it out with carbs-but good ones like fruits, veggies, whole wheat (if you like wheat, if not you can also afford regular pastas, etc).Eat 5-6 small meals a day rather than 2-3 larger ones (really important b/c of how hard you are working out). Drink lots of water (sounds like you are:) and stay away from refined sugar as much as possible--it makes for some crappy workout fuel! How about protein bars? There's one I like called Pure Protein (I think that's the name) & they taste really yummy. Again, when & if you pick one out, watch the sugar content. I'm glad you're letting ppl know that skinny doesn't always mean healthy & I think it's awesome that even though you are thin, you realize the value of cardio & muscle health. You're doing awesome-think I'll try my fit test tomorrow--it'll be raining anyway!
