Yoga with my oldest son...
Wednesday, December 07, 2011      3 comments

My 11 year old son, Adam, was diagnosed with polyarthritis in August. All of a sudden, his right knee had swollen up with fluid so full that it looked like someone stuck a large grapefruit under the skin. A couple weeks later, it switched to t... Read more
No P90X in my mailbox :-(
Wednesday, December 07, 2011      7 comments

So the mail came... And my P90X was not in there... Went to library to see if I could check out the other copy, it wasn't there. They did have some of the other P90X DVDs, but they were ones that I wouldn't need for over a week still, and the... Read more
P90X Day 14
Wednesday, December 07, 2011      6 comments

So today is day 14 in my P90X. I can't believe I've already finished 2 whole weeks of this! Today was "rest day." The workout is stretching. However, since I've been borrowing the workouts from my library (still waiting for my copies to come... Read more
P90X Day 13
Tuesday, December 06, 2011      3 comments

Day 13: Kenpo... I'm not totally sold on this workout yet... Maybe because I am so in love with Chalene Johnson's Turbo Fire and Turbo Kick workouts? They are fun, intense, have great music, etc. Kenpo starts out really slow, with about 15 ... Read more
P90X Day 12
Monday, December 05, 2011      4 comments

Well, I haven't been feeling well since Wed. It started with a sore throat/swollen glands, now I'm pretty sure it's bronchitis... I called in Friday and today because I've been coughing a lot. Yesterday I hardly had a voice and felt like I wa... Read more
P90X Day 11
Sunday, December 04, 2011      0 comments

Today is day 11... I woke up with a horrible migraine this morning. It hurt so bad that I couldn't even lay my head back down on the pillow. I took 2 Excedrin Migraine tablets and ate a couple crackers. I tried laying on the recliner with an ... Read more
P90X Day 10
Saturday, December 03, 2011      1 comments

Today's P90X workout was "shoulders and arms." I felt really good during the workout. I used mainly 15# dumbbells, but at times for triceps I would go down to 10's. I am seeing a lot of definition in my shoulders, biceps, and triceps. I can ... Read more
P90X Day 9
Friday, December 02, 2011      1 comments

Today is already day 9 of P90X for me! It was Plyo day. This is the kind of workout that I love. It reminds me of Turbo Fire= intense! I wore my weighted hand gloves that I use for Turbo Fire to increase the calorie burn and the intensity ev... Read more
P90X Day 8
Thursday, December 01, 2011      1 comments

Today was day 8 of P90X. I hardly slept all last night, I think I got about 4 or 5 hours total. I've been coming down with a bug: sore throat, swollen glands. When I was STILL up at 12:45, I reset my alarm from 4:45 to 6:00, knowing that my b... Read more
P90X day 7
Wednesday, November 30, 2011      1 comments

Today was day 7 for P90X: stretching. I actually didn't get to do that one, since I didn't have it yet. When I borrowed the DVDs from the library, I could only get 5 at once, so I took everything that I'd need for the next week, but I couldn'... Read more
P90X Day 6
Tuesday, November 29, 2011      1 comments

Today was Kenpo X, which starts with yoga type poses then goes into a kickboxing workout. Lots of punches and kicks. I'm so used to Turbo Fire and Turbo Kick being dance-y. No dance moves from Tony Horton! LOL. I am planning to switch some ... Read more
Day 5 P90X
Monday, November 28, 2011      2 comments

Day 5 of P90X is done! It was "Legs & Back" followed by ab ripper. I did the legs and back workout before work (5am!) It was good. I was surprised at how often weights were NOT used in the DVD. The guy would use them, but the girls didn't a... Read more
Days 3 & 4 of P90X
Sunday, November 27, 2011      3 comments

Yesterday was day 3 of P90X: Shoulders and arms. It didn't feel to bad, but I think I was well-conditioned from doing ChaLEAN Extreme and all of the Bob Harper "inside out method" DVDs. I used 10 and 15 pound weights for the workout. There w... Read more
P90X Day 2
Friday, November 25, 2011      2 comments

Today was day 2 of P90X- Plyometrics. I felt that it was a lot like Turbo Fire HIIT (but an hour instead of 15, 20, 25 or 30 minutes!) and Insanity. I felt that it was a great workout! I was sweating and my heart was definitely pumping, so th... Read more

My husband and I went through the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University program a few years back online. Well, we were doing OK, then one thing after another happened and we ended up quitting... We recently made a new budget and are doing th... Read more
