From my first round of P90X!





Me and my "baby" Great Dane/Boxer mix, Hannah. 100 lbs of sweet love. :)

Time to name it - and claim it.

My mantra: Eyes on the prize, kid... eyes on the prize.

I want to do everything in my power to feel awesome in my own skin again.

I want to rejoice in my priceless, precious, good health.

I want to hone and refine my physical and mental strength so I can do bigger, better, bad-ass things.

I want to be the best "me" I can be, for MYSELF... because it will spill and overflow into everything around me and create a chain reaction of awesomeness.

My Goals:
1) Make the best choices I can at any given time, in any given situation.

2) Get better sleep.

3) Maintain a lifestyle of whole wellness - mind, body, AND spirit.

My Program:
Going vegetarian (very nearly vegan) was a huge asset to helping me lose weight - and I dance. A LOT. The combination of the two has given me much success... not just because they are beneficial on their own (eating right and moving more), but because they are in line with the things I am passionate about (animal life and creativity). To thine own self be true... and the rest will fall into place. Life lesson, there. I'm also a big Tony Horton enthusiast; his programs are biomechanically sound and efficient.

Personal Information:
Live in DE. I have a bunch of bossy cats and a ginormous Great Dane/Boxer puppydog. (It's like sharing a house with a pony on crack.) By day, I'm a humble cubicle jockey; by night, I'm a bohemian goddess. I like the Oxford comma.

Other Information:
You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

Thanks for the comment. I hope you are enjoying P90x3! I seriously thought about that system, but so far I'm really pleased with my choice of CE.

I purchased a powdered supplement from GNC, Women's Ultra Mega Active in vanilla and chocolate. With my member discount I got a 2 month supply for ~ $50 ($60 once you figure tax and all). I have not tried them yet so I don't know if they taste as good as Shakeology. If I really don't like them I can always return them for a full refund within 30 days. GNC is good like that. I'm really liking the shake for breakfast, especially when I beef it up with a banana or peanut butter.

I just ordered Chalene Extreme and will be taking my before pictures tonight. Looking forward to the next 30 days and beyond. Do you drink Shakeology? I tried the chocolate, banana, peanut butter for breakfast and was surprised that I was full. It was good.

Thanks for your comment and encouragement on my page! I'll probably post a blog either Saturday or Sunday when I finish X3!

Yeah I haven't really asked my work if a standing desk is OK... my husband is building it for me and will try to match the other wood in my cube as much as possible, and I'm just gonna for it. I'll be able to sit or stand and the only thing that'll look different from outside of my box is that my monitors will be taller than they are now. But hey, I'll be HAPPIER.. have more energy, be more productive. I'd like them to tell me why it's a bad thing, if they have an issue with it. We'll see!

He's making me a platform that'll sit on top of my existing desk. They have some on Amazon for $60+.
