Halfway done with P90X tomorrow... woo hoo!
Whew, plyo this morning kicked me RIGHT in the pants... but it's getting better, and I can feel myself getting stronger and being able to get crazier with it. :)
I remarked the other day at ... Read more
I vant your bloooood
That's what I was thinking when I went to get my blood taken for bloodwork this morning. Andrew and I both had physicals, and the doctor requested bloodwork for the both of us - for no reason other than to get a baseline for both of us so any c... Read more
And so it is!
Did my usual "rest day" workout of Fatburner Express (which is short in duration but decent intensity, if you bring it), and tonight will be the lovely Stretch X - one hour of nothing but getting those muscles loose and happy.... Read more
Eat more heat! :)
So Dad and his wife came down to visit me for belated birthday dinner this weekend. Dad asked me where I wanted to go... and since my favorite vegetarian/vegan place happened to be on the middle of the main drag of the college town and it was C... Read more
On Friday, I'll be halfway done with P90X already! Where did THAT time go..??
I have been so crazy busy, between the show and the workouts and the wedding and everything else. I think I might suffer some serious withdrawal after it all co... Read more
So I got on a cleaning jag last night and ended up not getting to bed until midnight... which is bad. But I made a big dent in cleaning, which is good. :)
Did back & biceps today - and let me just say that I gave my body a real beating th... Read more
Shall we try this again?
So... yesterday was a real bust. Pretty much nothing went right yesterday.
But you know, I've found that since I've started to take better care of myself, I roll with things better. When I am caught in the rapids of ridiculousness, I am n... Read more
O, motivation, where art thou???
I guess I'm doing okay... I got up, did my workout this morning and rocked it pretty well, pushing myself hard (one-handed pushups... oy vey!).
But as far as everything else I have to do today? NOPE. All I want to do is crawl back under t... Read more
I'm a bad Fitbit mom. I starved it to death!! LOL... seriously, they last so long on one charge that I guess I just let time get away from me and haven't charged it. So, I'll put her back on her charger tonight when I get home, I guess.

Quick blog to check in -
I am so incredibly busy right now, but never too busy for workouts - and today completes week 5 of P90X. Well, technically, TOMORROW does, but tomorrow is a rest day. Of course, I always squeeze in at least a ligh... Read more
P90X - 30-day Progress Pics!!
Okay - here goes...
Riddle me this...
So I started my day like always - woke up, P90X (today was back/biceps/abs), shower, feed the zoo, commute, settle in, log in, log breakfast/exercise.
First of all - new start page format! Not sure if I like it, but it's got all your goal ... Read more
An ugly part of myself.
So for Admin Professionals Day (which my workplace celebrates for a week), they had all the fixin's for burritos/tacos trucked in for us to have for lunch. Nice! I opted for rice (no taco shell or burrito shell), black beans, lettuce, pico de ... Read more
Caffeine Cold Turkey - Day 2
Where does that expression come from, anyway? "Cold turkey." Gross.
Anyway, today is my second day without caffeine. I am not as sluggish as yesterday, I don't think - I don't know. It's hard to tell, because I am a little fatigued. I ... Read more
P90X - Phase II
Began Phase II today, and introduced a new workout into the mix: Chest/Back/Triceps. No pullups today - which I was initially glad for - but today was THE day for pushups, all different kinds, every which way possible. Also, many triceps exten... Read more
