On a random, positive note: I finally ordered "The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Eating Clean" and "The New Rules of Lifting for Women." I’ve been yearning for these books for a while and was hoping to pick them up at my local Barnes and Noble, but after hearing over and over again that they’re out of stock I simply decided to use my Christmas gift card and order them for delivery at a slightly discounted price. I managed to get both of them for less than $30, including taxes. :) Awesomeness: achieved.

In addition to that, my boyfriend burned a copy of his new Insanity workout (yes, illegally) and I should be getting that in the mail in the next week or so--he lives long distance and we both wanted to work on the 60-day project together. Hopefully I'll get it by next Friday, it all depends on when his IT friend mails it.

So many exciting fitness endeavors are on the horizon! I can’t wait to not only get into Insanity, but to sink my teeth back into strength training. I’ve been focusing solely on cardio and pilates for the past week to help slim down some of my Christmas bloat, and every time I go to the gym I yearn for the weights. But if I’m going to do Insanity I don’t want to stock up on water weight while my muscles repair themselves after each lifting session, so cardio it shall be. I adore running but the "bat-wings" under my arms are feeling pretty neglected lately. :P

But soon enough I’ll be working toward a completely clean diet and busting my ass every day on Insanity to prep for the ultimate lifting workout. I cannot WAIT. So much excitement up in here, I seriously cannot contain myself. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

That is all. Happy weekend. :)

    I've heard Insanity is no joke, but both of you supporting one another, I'm sure you'll rock it.

    Good luck with the diet and the new workout routine.

    YEAH For LIFTING!!!!
